In terms of both performance and hardware, the SUPERNAIT 2 is conceptually as close as it is possible to get to separate pre and power amps in one box. It borrows advanced technology from flagship Naim preamplifiers, such as the NAC 552, and in employing the latest Naim DR (Discrete Regulator) techniques in its power supply, sits right at the forefront of Naim amplifier technology. It is also constructed in the classic Naim full height extruded aluminium enclosure.
The SUPERNAIT 2 combines a muscular 80 Watts per channel power amplifier with six analogue inputs. Technical highlights include a Class-A preamp output stage which doubles as a headphone amplifier, ceramic heatsink technology that minimises capacitive coupling between the chassis and output transistors and individually decoupled and hand-wired input sockets. Its internal switching employs ultra-low-noise, constant current sources which are derived directly from the flagship NAC 552 preamplifier. The SUPERNAIT 2 doesn't miss a trick or a beat.
It doesn't miss any music either. The SUPERNAIT 2 is never phased by the demands of either speaker or music. It simply delivers dynamic, detailed and engaging music that can't fail to move you.
Each of the NAIT integrated amplifiers benefit from the breakthroughs in audio technology and engineering that result from thousands of hours of development time.
Their over-sized toroidal transformers offer enough power to handle even the most demanding of loudspeakers and recordings. Signal path and circuit design has been carefully optimised to maintain maximum fidelity and each component part has been selected through intensive testing, first in the lab and then in the listening room. Great lengths have been taken to minimise unwanted noise and interference too. From the non-magnetic anti-resonance aluminium encasings, to shoulder bolts designed to dissipate unwanted vibrations and, in the case of the SUPERNAIT 2, individually hand-wired and decoupled input sockets. Future enhancements to control software are made possible by a USB mini-B input on the rear panel for updates only.
In our quest for the ultimate sound quality, no detail is too small to ignore and no barrier too large to overcome.
