Description

The NAIM Supernait 3 integrated amplifier has upgraded power amplifier sections, delivering greater pace and intimacy to their musical delivery – whether it’s driving a pair of loudspeakers or your favourite pair of headphones. SUPERNAIT 3 has a built-in phono stage, making it a perfect partner for turntables, as well as for streamers, CD players, or any other music source people want to enjoy with the signature Naim sound.

It also includes a Class A preamp output stage which doubles as a headphone amplifier and ceramic heatsink technology that minimises capacitive coupling between the chassis and output transistors for optimum sound quality. Its inputs are each individually decoupled and hand-wired to minimise noise and interference while internal switching employs ultra-low-noise, constant current sources which are derived directly from the electronic design of the flagship NAC 552 preamplifier.

The SUPERNAIT 3 can be upgraded with NAIM external power supplies, power amplifiers and even cabling upgrades to get the best from all sources.

Features

  • Class A headphone amplification
  • Alps Blue Velvet volume control
  • Reed relay input selection
  • Ceramic insulators for the power transistors
  • Galvanically isolated microprocessor control section
  • Microphonic-isolating PCB mounts
  • Full 24V DR module built-in: enjoy the purer power and performance improvement of Naim’s Discrete Regulation technology for the entire pre-amp stage.
  • Larger toroidal transformer in the power supply: provides greater power and speed of recovery
  • Additional leaded through-hole components in the signal path: further minimises negative effects of vibration and transient thermal conditions
  • Chassis-mounted input sockets hand-wired to the circuit boards: offers enhanced vibration isolation
  • Full Alps Blue Velvet balance control
