Our staff say
The NAP 250 DR is a stunning power amplifier (the latest incarnation of an iconic model) but the NAP 300 DR takes it to an entirely new level with far greater depth and dynamic range. Its considerably more expensive than the 250, but far less of a difference than jumping from 300 to the flagship 500, making it something a relative bargain, especially with 0% finance and a part exchange against your current power amp as options. No words can substitute for a listen though - visit us for a proper demonstration. -Alex (our MD)
Naim NAP 300 is a 90W per channel power amplifier and builds on the innovations and successes of its bigger brother, the far more expensive NAP 500, making NAP 300 a significant step above NAP 250 yet incredible value.
Many years of research went into the NAP 500, as fundamentally new components and technologies had to be perfected before Naim could raise the performance level for power amplifiers. Many of these technical developments, along with the elegant new styling have been applied to the mighty NAP 300. The Naim NAP 300 includes a 300 PS Power Supply and Burndy interconnects.
Naim's flagship Statement amplification system was ten years in the making. The research and development project drew on all of Naim's knowledge and expertise, yielding several breakthroughs in technology. Now for 2015 Naim introduced two new technologies from the Statement project into the core range of power amplifiers. Like the flagship Naim NAP 500, the NAP 300 is a stereo two-chassis amplifier, one box containing the audio amplifier and the second housing the power supply. Improved earthing arrangements have resulted in an entirely new circuit topology built on a very high quality, anti-resonance main audio circuit board.
The NAP 300 now features the new NA009 transistors first introduced in Statement. In development for over a year, this key component was created in partnership with a specialist semi-conductor manufacturer to achieve the best possible sound quality. The 300 also includes the high power Naim DR (Discrete Regulator) technology used in Statement to provide the smooth, stable power supply we know is critical for the audio electronics to make music come to life.
NAP 300 uses outstanding components that provide up to 80 Amps and 350 Watts, negating the need to use parallel pairs of transistors (which always has a negative effect on sound). Anti-vibration, resonance-controlling feet serve to protect the sensitive internal components from resonance and microphonic vibration. These new technologies from Naim Statement, combined with other small improvements to layout and componentry, mean the NAP 300 DR can produce even more of the fundamental musical pace, rhythm and timing that made the originals so popular with music lovers.
We are here to help find the right system for you. As a suggested starting point, you may want to consider partnering the NAP 300 with the following:
- NAC 252
- Ovator S-600
A variable speed, virtually noiseless cooling fan is mounted on a large internal heat sink providing long-term stability and the ability to swing a massive 500 VA on transients. The NAP 300 is stable into any load and able to drive a 2-Ohm load for long periods of time. The Naim NAP 300 delivers immense power without sacrificing any speed or agility to provide awe-inspiring levels of detail, ambient information and musicality.
