The devil is in the detail.
As the debut product in our reference 500 Series range, the NAP500-DR is a monumental expression of Naim Audio's amplifier technology. Its design was honed over six years of collaborative work with suppliers of specialist parts and each product takes days of dedicated assembly by Naim's most skilled technicians in Salisbury. It’s this eye for detail, alongside its remarkable power, that allows the NAP500-DR to bring your music into breath-taking focus.
Naim's flagship Statement amplification system was ten years in the making. The research and development project drew on all of Naim's knowledge and expertise, yielding several breakthroughs in technology. Two new technologies from the Statement project have been introduced into their core range of power amplifiers.
The NAP500-DR 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 NAP500-DR also includes the high power Naim Audio DR (Discrete Regulator) technology used in Statement to provide the smooth, stable power supply we all 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 NAP500-DR can produce even more of the fundamental musical pace, rhythm and timing that makes Naim amplifiers so popular with music lovers.
