Naim Supernait 2
The new Naim Supernait 2 is a proper step up from the Nait XS-2 sibling. We could never bring ourselves to say that about the original one, which was a sort of electronic swiss army knife including an in-built DAC. You can take it as read that it’s a serious step forward of its predecessor in all meaningful respects, such as clarity, spirit and sheer musicality.
It may have been stripped of the digital features, but it still has an excellent in-built headphone amp. Supernait 2 now has some Discrete Regulation, giving it a very refined nature. The upshot of this is that a new DR Hi-Cap brings a noticeable uplift in performance whereas an older non-DR HiCap does not.
But please don’t assume that the next level of pre-power amplifiers have been rendered superfluous. . . In fact we have a customer who rather enjoys using his Supernait 2 into a NAP 250 per amp.
