Based in Salisbury, UK they have a fantastic manufacturing facility we have been lucky enough to visit on a few occasions. The attention to detail they provide would stun the untrained eye, no wonder their products are as good as they are, and pick up so many awards!
The NAC-N 272 combines Naims 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.

Six digital and three analogue inputs cover integration with a wide range of sources from CD and games consoles to phonostages. It is also performance upgradable with the addition of a Naim XP5 XS, XPS or 555 PS power supply.All this functionality does not come at the cost of performance.
