- 90W per channel output into 8 ohms; capable of prolonged output into 2 ohms with no discernible impact on performance
- Two-box configuration (300 PS power supply included) minimises electromagnetic interference
- High-power Naim DR (Discrete Regulator) technology and NA009 output transistors as used in flagship Statement NAP S1 power amplifier
Like the flagship Naim NAP 500, the NAP 300 is a stereo two-chassis amplifier, one box containing the audio amplifier and the second housing the power supply. Improved earthing arrangements have resulted in an entirely new circuit topology built on a very high quality, anti-resonance main audio circuit board. The NAP 300 uses the same 007 transistors that were custom-designed for the NAP 500. These outstanding components each provide up to 80 Amps and 350 Watts, negating the need to use parallel pairs of transistors (which always has a negative effect on sound). Additional 007 transistors are used in the fully regulated power supply, ensuring the very best performance.
Anti-vibration, resonance-controlling feet serve to protect the sensitive internal components from resonance and microphonic vibration.
A variable speed, virtually noiseless cooling fan is mounted on a large internal heat sink providing long-term stability and the ability to swing a massive 500 VA on transients. The NAP 300 is stable into any load and able to drive a 2-Ohm load for long periods of time.
The Naim NAP 300 delivers immense power without sacrificing any speed or agility to provide awe-inspiring levels of detail, ambient information and musicality.
The NAP 300 now features the new NA009 transistors first introduced in Statement. In development for over a year, this key component was created in partnership with a specialist semi-conductor manufacturer to achieve the best possible sound quality. The 300 also includes the high power Naim DR (Discrete Regulator) technology used in Statement to provide the smooth, stable power supply we know is critical for the audio electronics to make music come to life.
These two new technologies, combined with other small improvements to layout and componentry, mean the NAP 300 DR can produce even more of the fundamental musical pace, rhythm and timing that made the originals so popular with music lovers.
