Product Description

The Naim CI-NAP 101 Mono Power Amplifier is a low-noise mono power amplifier designed for driving subwoofers or integrated speakers in home cinema systems. It can also be used with 70v/100v line array loudspeakers.

The amplifier can deliver 500 watts into 8 Ohms and has stereo RCA inputs that are connected for mono. This unit can be combined with the Naim CI-Uniti 102 Custom Install Amplifier and Streamer to make a complete multi-channel system.

Low noise amplifier.

As multi-speaker systems can potentially make any noise more audible, the Naim CI-NAP 101 Mono Power Amplifier has a low noise, low distortion design. It is also compact and rack mountable. There are two low-impedance outputs for powering a pair of speakers directly. There are also 70V and 100V line outputs.

What is 70V/100V audio?

The Naim CI-NAP 101 Mono Power Amplifier has two 70V and two 100V line outputs that can drive chains of speakers in large buildings. They can also be used to drive sets of surround sound speakers. Also known as constant voltage or a high impedance system, 70V/ 100V line loudspeakers have a step-down transformer with various taps that can be used to control how much power an individual speaker in the chain gets.

The higher voltage reduces losses on long cable runs and allows smaller cable diameters to be used in high-power systems.

Driving Focal Speakers

The CI series from Naim has been designed to complement the Focal range of Architectural built-in speakers. For example, the Naim CI-NAP 101 Mono Power Amplifier can drive the 1000 IWLCR Utopia loudspeakers accompanied by two 1000 IWSUB Utopia subwoofers from Focal.

Trigger input and auto shutdown

For efficiency and ease of use, the Naim CI-NAP 101 Mono Power Amplifier has a trigger input that will automatically turn the unit on when the control processor turns on. Moreover, there is input signal detection that will also turn the unit on. Additionally, the unit will power off after 20 minutes of inactivity.

A typical use case

High-power mono amplifiers such as the Naim CI-NAP 101 Mono Power Amplifier can be used to boost the power of the front left and right speakers in a home cinema system. The unit can also drive a chain of subwoofers. In large buildings, the 70V or 100V line outputs can drive chains of speakers for music or public address use.
