Naim NAC-N 272
What we Say:
The NAC-N 272 has been a huge success story for Naim. The combination of pre-amplifier and streaming technology means that a high-quality, two-box solution is now a reality. Or – partner with an active pair of speakers, like ATC’s wonderful SCM40A, and you have a superb single-box solution, feted by critic Jason Kennedy as ‘all the system most of us will ever need’.
We love the 272 for its combination of performance and flexibility. Performance, because it sounds wonderful and steeped in the classic Naim sound. Flexible, because it supports such a wide range of formats and inputs.
It’s a go-to piece of kit, and one of DNA’s favourites.Enquire about the Naim NAC-N 272 >
What they say:
The NAC-N 272 combines our latest innovations in digital audio technology with classic analogue preamplifier engineering. It samples the best of both worlds to create an immensely musical hi-fi system.
Paired with a NAP 200, NAP 250 or even a NAP 300 power amplifier, the 272 is an ideal choice for those seeking the convenience of a single box streaming system with iOS and Android app control, but that crave hi-fi separates performance. It boasts an impressive array of inputs including high-resolution (up to 24bit/192kHz) UPnPTM streaming, Spotify Connect, iRadio, Bluetooth (aptX), USB, multiroom, TIDAL music streaming support and an optional DAB/FM module. Six digital and three analogue inputs cover integration with a wide range of sources from CD and games consoles to phonostages. It’s also performance upgradable with the addition of a Naim Audio XP5 XS, XPS or 555 PS power supply.
All this functionality does not come at the cost of performance. The 272 has been carefully designed and meticulously hand-crafted to deliver a completely immersive and awe-inspiring music experience.
