Naim Range Guide

As dedicated Naim Audio retailers, we sell the full range of products. These can be broken down into the one box systems (Mu-So range), Uniti range (hi-fi system in a single box), Five range (introduction to hi-fi separates), XS range (full hi-fi separates system), Classic range (their higher range of hi-fi separates and most popular range), and 500 range (their highest range of hi-fi separates, with the only higher product available being the £125k Naim Statement amplifiers).

We keep MOST of the Naim range in stock and available to listen to in our midlands showroom, making Audio Affair a single location where you can discover Naim and build a system that suits your requirements and budget, with the help of our expert and friendly staff. We can also offer 0% finance on orders over £500 (over 6-48 months depending on spend), allowing you to spread the cost of your investment in listening.

This page is a quick guide to these Naim Audio ranges, starting with the one box Mu-So systems (click any product below to read more)...

When the original Naim Mu-So (the larger one above) was released it was a huge move for the brand, having traditionally focused on hi-fi separates to release a competitor to the finest "single box" speaker systems under £1000  - akin to Bentley suddenly releasing a competitor to the 3 series! Expectations were high and the Mu-So certainly didn't disappoint, with its battleship build quality, impressive sound quality and iconic design, its a fantastic music system that can play music streamed from Bluetooth devices and more. In 2016, Naim announced the Mu-So Qb (the smaller one above), a more compact version of Mu-So. You can also link these together as a multi room set-up with other Mu-So's and Mu-So Qb's. Both systems have optional coloured grilles available separately.

While Mu-So sounds fantastic, Naim's most popular products are is Uniti range (below). Each of these is designed to give hi-fi separates sound quality from a single box with a choice of four models. Uniti range came out several years before Mu-So but were also a huge move for Naim as single box "all in one" hi-fi models were never previously viewed as a serious alternative to a full hi-fi system, and while the Uniti range will never sound as good as a full separates Naim XS or Classic system with all the bells and whistles, the Uniti range was an incredible achievement by Naim and we havent heard any other one box systems that sound as good as Uniti (and we audition a lot of brands). Each of these offers hi-fi separates quality from a compact, space saving single box - you just need to add speakers (and we can offer advice on this too).

Each Uniti model now features Spotify, Bluetooth AptX wireless streaming, USB playback and more, with improved sound quality and increased power as you go up the range (to match with larger and more demanding speakers)...

While these Uniti models are Naim's most popular products, and each of these can be upgraded in future by adding a power amplifier from the Classic range, a Naim separates system will always be the most aspirational option for many listeners and although it will require a larger investment, will be the best sounding music system solution long term, with a greatest number of future upgrade options. In most cases, if you want more than Uniti, we recommend skipping to XS range or Classic range products, however the five range (below) offers incredible value for money as a basic starting point for a Naim separates system...

The five range is a great starting place if you're on a budget, but many of our customers go straight into the XS range (below), especially with the benefit of our 0% finance options. XS range offers a choice of aspirational pre/power amplifier combinations (or integrated ampliifer which can be upgraded by adding the power amplifier in future), along with a choice of streaming and CD sources. The XS range still also includes a dedicated tuner for you avid FM radio listeners! XS is also the first Naim range that includes a selection of power supply upgrades, which can be added to specific models as an immediate or future upgrade path...

Classic range, believe it or not, is the most popular level of product we sell from Naim, a high end range of products that better the XS range, yet come in at more attainable prices than the 500 range. Just like XS range, you have the option of aspirational pre/power amplifier combinations (including Naim's latest version of the hugely iconic NAP 250 power amplifier and the option of the combined pre/streaming NAC-N 272, our best selling pre/power combination) or integrated amplifier (again, which can be upgraded by adding a power amplifier in future, although we find most customers who buy this integrated have a specific reason such as lack of space but still want very high level separates).

Music sources include streamers, combined CD ripping/storage (Uniti Serve models), CD, phono stage for a vinyl turntable (we recommend matching a Linn LP12 turntable with Naim), along with optional DAC and power supplies as further upgrades for specific models.

The flagship Naim products are contained in the 500 range. This range contains only 5 products, a very high end pre/power amplifier combination (only bettered by the Naim Statement amplifiers at over £125k, but still incredible and more attainable at a third of the price), with the option of either a flagship streamer or flagship CD player and a matching power supply upgrsade. Its worth noting that the 555PS below can also be added to some Classic level products as the ultimate power supply upgrade over an XPS or Supercap.
