Product Description

Naim NAIT XS 3 Integrated Amplifier is the third reincarnation of the Nait XS drawing on Naim 46 years of audio expertise and featuring significant performance upgrades as well as new inbuilt phono stage for Naim signature sound reproduction and seamless partnering with turntables, streamers, CD players or other music sources.

Naim Legacy

Handmade in Salisbury, the Nait XS 3 incorporates upgrades developed in the six years since the model's inception resulting in an enhanced power amplifier section as well as better pace and intimacy in audio delivery. The new phono stage is based on classic Naim designs and constructed from audiophile-grade components expertly grouped and chosen for maximum precision.


The speed of the voltage gain stage is doubled which consequently doubles the rate at which the speaker output stage can respond. The second gain stage transistors have been maximised bypassing the need for a shielding by a cascode stage transistor.

The second gain stage transistors have been optimised so they no longer need to be shielded by a cascode stage transistor. Eliminating the cascode means less amplifier stabilisation is needed which doubles the slew rate and enhances sound quality.

Gain Stage

The phono circuit topology consists of three stages; the gain stage, passive equalisation and final gain/active EQ. This allows exceptional noise performance, extended RIAA equalisation beyond the audio band and great overload headroom.

All RIAA equalisation capacitors are ‘through-hole’ mounted film structures, with low microphonic pickup and great transient performance. As phono stages are a thousand times more sensitive than other inputs, this hugely benefits the sound quality. The gain is perfect for 5mV moving magnet cartridges.

Key Features

- Class A headphone amplification
- Alps Blue Velvet volume control
- Reed relay input selection
- Ceramic insulators for the power transisitors
- Galvanically isolated microprocessor control section
- Microphonic-isolating PCB mounts
