Product Description

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.

Internally Strong

Naim has re-imagined their internal chassis design for the NSC 222, with the implementation of a high-quality MM phono stage to handle your vinyl, alongside configurable inputs that allow for the dual master clocks to truly shine and handle sound with an accomplished zest.

Naim Pushing The Bar Higher

NSC 222 comes armed with the latest and greatest technology that Naim can pack into a pre-amplifier today, with their NP800 streaming card taking care of the latest streaming avenues such as Tidal Connect, Spotify Connect, Qobuz, AirPlay 2, Chromecast and UPnP servers to name but a few options that this pre-amplifier can take on.

All About The DAC

The DAC that Naim has armed the NSC 222 with an excellent DAC, the Texas Instruments PCM1791A with custom components to bring out the very best in the soundstage of this pre-amplifier.
