There was great excitement at Audio-t Cardiff last week when we took delivery of a new baby.
It was delivered in a pristine white box with a shiny label.
It was of course the long awaited new Naim Supernait 2. Stripped of all its digital inputs it is now left to do what it does best and that is play music.
With a muscular 80W per channel power amplifier, six analogue inputs and employing the latest DR techniques in its power supplies the Supernait 2 is conceptually as close as it is possible to get to separate pre and power in one box.
Including a Class A preamp output section which also doubles up as a headphone amp similar to the one found on the award winning DAC V1, the Supernait 2 does not miss a trick or a beat.
First impressions? WOW! Detailed, dynamic, engaging and emotional. Takes you straight to the heart of the music.
While George will not be king for a while, this new Naim can certainly wear its crown with pride.
Pop in and have a listen. We have it hooked up in our dem room with a pair of Spendor D7 loudspeakers and like William and Kate, its a perfect match!
