Product Description

Naim NCS 222 and NAP 250 System is a combination of two of Naim's 200 Series flagship products. Designed to be easily controlled through the Focal & Naim App, the smart Zigbee remote control or via the unit itself, the illuminated volume controller is simple to use.


The Naim NSC 222 pre-amplifier is part of the re-invention of the legendary Classic 200 series from Naim Audio that has stood the test of time for 50 years, with an attitude that compromise is akin to blasphemy this pre-amplifier is the embodiment of everything that Naim stands for in hi-fi.

Making A Statement

The NSC 222 features statement volume control that combines reed relays to deliver a precise laser-focused sound across the channels to provide balance without any sound degradation. Using a variant of the statement system brings in a fly-by-wire encoder with a ball-raced bearing for smoothness.

Naim NAP 250

The Naim NAP 250 6th Gen Power Amplifier is the latest version in a four-decade-long quest for amplifier perfection from Naim Audio. This sixth generation NAP 250 takes advantage of the latest technology, with unrivalled performance to get the best possible sound from your loudspeakers.

Power To the Audio

The NAP 250 comes armed with Eight NA009 transistors, that are split in half with 4 for the PSU and 4 for the output stages. Each of these is mounted on ceramic insulators to ensure an ultra-low capacitive coupling, delivering protection that has constantly been refined over the past 40 years.

Key Features

- Statement volume control architecture using reed relays. Premium sound quality of fixed resistor volume control, providing precise channel balance. This miniaturised version of the Statement volume control uses super smooth fly-by-wire optical encoder with precision ball raced bearing.
- Reed relay input switching
- Single ended discrete transistor class A input buffers and filter circuits; using hand soldered polystyrene capacitors.
- Built in high quality MM phono stage
- 5.5 inch colour display • Configurable inputs: Input sensitivity pre-set, naming, AV bypass mode and unused input disabling.
- Uses Naim’s latest NP800 streaming card with LVDS balanced digital signals for low noise. Stream internet radio stations, music from Spotify Connect, Apple Music, Tidal (and Tidal Connect), Qobuz, AirPlay 2, Chromecast, UPnP servers, USB attached storage and Roon ready.
- aptX Adaptive Bluetooth
- App control continuity from Mu-so through to Classic range.
- Multi-room capability with other Naim streaming products (right up to Classic range and 500 Series).
- ZigBee RF bi-directional remote control, line of sight not needed, volume changes reflected on the remote.
- Dual optical 3.5mm inter-product communications for synchronised standby and lighting, compatible with the new NAP250 power amplifier.
- Twin fixed frequency (44.1kHz and 48kHz based sample rates) master clocks for ultra low jitter. Runs in clock master mode for streaming services.
- DSP RAM buffer for SP/DIF inputs, eliminates jitter caused by SP/DIF modulation (4x SP/DIF inputs).
- Naim’s proprietary DSP 705.6kHz/768kHz integer oversampling filter.
- PCM1791A DAC (running in external filter mode) followed by discrete transistor class A op-amps and filters. Custom polystyrene ultralow dielectric absorption Post DAC filter components.
- PSU upgrade with NPX 300 via two Burndy cables (one digital and one analogue).
- 0.5W standby power Using two internal power supplies; one is a high quality audiophile linear type, based on a large toroidal transformer. The other is a highly efficient SMPSU for 0.5W power consumption in standby during standby mode.
- Galvanic isolation of control and audio circuits
