Naim Audio NAC 332 Pre-amplifier
Naim Audio NAC332 Pre-amplifier
What we Say:
The Naim Audio NAC 332 is a brand new ground up design. It is the replacement model for the outgoing NAC 252. It is designed as an all analogue pre-amp with performance as the number one objective. It features XLR, DIN and RCA connections.
Unlike the 252 the 332 has a built in power supply to make the process of building your system simpler and less costly. Once the extra performance is required the NPX 300 can be added later. We would recommend the 332 is partnered with either the new Classic NAP 250 stereo or NAP 350 mono power amplifiers.

What they say:
NAC 332 is the “analogue centre” of your system, delivering optimal performance to your amplifier and loudspeakers. Naim’s most versatile preamplifier to date, you can connect headphones as well as the NVC TT phono preamplifier for listening to vinyl. Use the included remote control to control the volume and inputs in just one click.
Taking several elements from the Statement S1 preamplifier, a benchmark product at Naim, NAC 332 combines performance and versatility thanks to its multiple functions. It allows you to connect many sources, from an amplifier to headphones, as well as a turntable or CD player. Its optimised Naim circuits deliver enhanced musical performance from all your sources and limit internal noise for uncompromising sound quality.
Under the leadership of our Technical Director, our engineers have developed specific electronic circuits to give the New Classic products superior performance. The best components have been chosen for NAC 332 and are mounted on printed circuit boards with metallic holes for increased quality. The architecture of the Statement volume knob has been used. Added to this are a high-performance transistor and balanced outputs that preserve sound quality over long distances and allow rack installation.
Naim products are designed to be both contemporary and timeless. Our creations forgo any unnecessary adornments that would detract from the performance and sound quality delivered. The design of the NSS 332 is razor sharp, combining a sleek design, premium materials, and adjustable logo brightness.
NAC 332 links perfectly to the streamer NSS 333 and power amplifier NAP 350 from the New Classic range.
Simplicity is the key. Buttons on the front panel allow quick access to standby mode, mute, and the inputs. For remote control, use the features of the bi-directional ZigBee remote, even without direct visibility of the product. The inputs are configurable so the product can be customised and a “Standby” option, consuming 0.5 Watts, reduces its energy consumption.
Our founder, Julian Vereker, immediately understood the many benefits of aluminium as a material for wrapping Naim electronic components. He knew that delicate audio components are very sensitive to the effects of magnetic fields, unstable temperatures, unwanted vibrations, etc.
