Since setting off from its launch at CES, Las Vegas in January, our flagship amplification system, Statement, has made its way around the globe. And with the full system weighing over quarter of a ton, that's no small feat. We take a look back at the journey before it returns to CES paired with the new Focal Grande Utopia EM loudspeakers this coming January.
Las Vegas, USA - January 2014
Statement was revealed to the world at the opening of CES Las Vegas, on 7th January 2014. Following the release of our Statement teaser film the previous December, we hosted a VIP event at the famous Venetian Hotel to unveil our ultimate amplification system to the world press and industry experts. Naturally, they were blown away. What Hi-Fi? went on to honour Statement with a coveted ‘Stars of CES 2014’ award for the performance, and the incredible reviews continued to roll in.
Bristol, UK - February 2014
After a stunning launch in the US, the NAC S1 preamplifier and NAP S1 mono power amplifiers returned to home territory for their UK debut. Visitors travelled from far and wide to experience the pinnacle of Naim Audio engineering knowledge and artistry at Bristol Sound & Vision 2014. With queues out the door for tickets to our closed demonstrations, Naim Audio Sales Director, Doug Graham, lead the demonstrations, talking through the engineering and design behind our ultimate amplification system.
