Product Description

Naim NSS 333 streamer is a high performance network player designed to get the best possible performance from streamed music.

Integrated services include AirPlay 2, Chromecast and UpnP. You can also stream from hi-res music services such as TIDAL, TIDAL Connect and Qobuz. NSS 333 is also Roon ready and has Bluetooth AptX to stream content from your smartphone or tablet. You can also connect to other Naim devices with Naim’s multiroom connectivity.

The casing is made of anodised aluminium with the latest Naim design and NSS 333 features excellent connectivity with a range of input and output options.

Designed to be an excellent match with the NAC 332 pre amplifier and NAP 350 in a complete Naim system, but of course you can enjoy this streamer alongside other Naim models and other hi-fi separates as well.

Naim experience

Naim engineers have developed some custom electronics to make the NSS 333 a cutting edge product. Only the best possible components have been used. This includes the NP800 streaming card and an exclusive DSP, with an integrated crossover. Moreover, the DAC is high-end and has very precise management of the audio signal.

Naim build and design

Naim forgo any unnecessary adornments and focus on functionality and sound quality. The result is a design both up-to-date and timeless. Premium materials are used, and the colour display does not detract from the classic looks. Simplicity is built in. Buttons are provided for common functions such as standby mode, play/pause and input select. There is also a remote control, and the standby power usage is small.

Good controllability

Control is easy with the Focal & Naim app. This can be installed on any device and will bring all your music sources together. Radio stations, playlists and streaming services can be accessed, as well as artist biographies and discographies. You will also be able to control both servers and Naim streaming products in one app. You can also wirelessly update your system.

Case design

Aluminium has several benefits for cabinet design. It is good at shielding sensitive electronics from magnetic fields, thermal instability and unwanted vibrations. The Naim Classic range uses specially chosen aluminium that has good thermal and microphonic properties.

The front panel is %ade of 20mm thick aluminium billets and the sides form the heatsinks. The top and bottom plates are both 5mm thick. The aluminium is then brushed, sandblasted and anodised. Therefore the beauty is more than skin deep, and the finish will last a lifetime.

Connectivity

You can take advantage of the NSS 333’s onboard DAC via digital inputs which include two optical inputs as well as an RCA and BNC input - all of these are 24-bit 192 kHz compatible. Analogue outputs are comprehensive, with a balanced XLR output, as well as a pair of RCA sockets, and a 5-pin DIN socket. There is also a wired Ethernet connection and two USB connectors.

What is a network streamer?

Streamers are devices that act as an interface between music sources, which are mainly digital, and your amplification device. Sources can be both online and from your local (home) network. Online sources include radio stations as well as services such as Spotify and TIDAL.

Notably, there is also another element to the system, the control device. Most streamers can be controlled locally, via buttons and a built-in screen. However, they can also be controlled by a remote control or a mobile device such as a Smartphone or tablet.

Most streamers also have a built-in DAC. This converts the 1 and 0’s of the digital stream back into music. This is probably the most important part of a streamer, and the NSS 333 uses an in-house designed board.

Music can also be accessed by using local files, these can be stored on an NAS or network attached drive. The NSS 333 also has a front mounted USB socket, where you can attach a thumb drive.
