Product Description

Naim NAC 282 Pre Amplifier presents an innovative degree of practical and melodic recital on top of sophisticated aesthetics. Extensive hours of listening to new designs and structures were undertaken to ensure the unity between composition and mechanism is always retained.

NAPSC Power Supply

Naim NAC 282 comprises the NAPSC power source, which autonomously controls the digital and regulator circuits while the auditory circuits rely on either a NAP 155 XS or NAP 200 power amp or a separate power supply like the HiCap or SuperCap. NAC 282 fuses genuinely breath-taking sound with intuitive user interface and elasticity that lets it work as the central hub of a premium hi-fi set up for decades to come. This purist pre amplifier is a perfect match for the latest version iconic NAP 250 DR power amplifier.

Vibration controlled

Low feedback circuit boards alongside anti-vibration and resonance-regulating bases work to capitalise on separation, hence curtailing the influences of microphonic tremor on the exceedingly delicate electrical mechanisms. Exact revolving potentiometers with prised metal wipers preserve the veracity of the audio and certify enduring solidity. NAC 282 has a silent microchip that snoozes throughout listening and governs every part of the amplifier. Visual defence circuits incessantly monitor the PS for secure shut-down in case of a blackout.

Purist design

A configurable remote control for the system labelled 'Smart IR' is supplied. In addition, two out of six inputs on the amplifier can be set as the standard DIN inputs, with greater earthing and impedance pairing, or for use with the more common RCA phono connectors, allowing a wide range of non-Naim cables and components to be used.

We are here to help find the right system for you. As a suggested starting point, you may want to consider partnering the NAC 282 with the following:

Separates System:
- CDX2
- NAP 250 DR
- NAP 300 DR

Upgrade Paths:
- Power-Line
- FlatCap XS
- HiCap DR
- SuperCap DR

A dedicated unity-gain input is provided for use with the Naim AV2 processor or similar. Each of the six inputs comprises isolated listen and record amenities. As well as the typical mute for record, NAC 282 mutes the output then powers down all linked units, averting any potential of corrupting the key output.

- Six line-level inputs including two user-configurable versatile (DIN/ phono) inputs.
- User configurable unity-gain AV input.
- Powered input for use with StageLine or SuperLine phono stage.
- Full infrared remote control.
- RC5 input for control from wired remote in sophisticated installations
- Optional RS232 input/output for complete home automation set ups
- Upgrade with either analogue (Hi-Cap, Super-Cap) or digital (NAPSC) PSUs
