We are proud to announce that we are launching a new range of network players: the ND 555, NDX 2 and ND5 XS 2.

Officially launching ahead of the Sound & Vision Bristol Hi-Fi Show, our latest network players have been engineered on the basis of a completely new streaming system. Three years in the making, this innovative, Naim-designed digital technology surpasses anything we’ve done before. Combining state-of-the-art DSP with a rich, analogue soul, our network players deliver engaging, immersive sound quality to get the very best out of your music. At the heart of the new range is our first ever 500 Series network player, the ND 555. The ND 555 also marks the first 500 Series launch since the CD555 twelve years ago.

‘a precise blend of high-speed digital componentry and rich analogue audio stages’

Inside the three new units (ND5 XS 2, NDX 2 and ND 555) is a precise blend of high-speed digital componentry and rich analogue audio stages. Each system is easy to control and built with the latest streaming services in mind. Our ND 555 and NDX 2 models also feature full colour displays to bring songs to life. When it came to our reference player, ND 555, Naim engineers called on audio technology we’ve only used in our flagship Statement range, as well as several new innovations. For example, we installed a series of 13 discrete regulators in ND 555 – similar to Statement, they supply ultra-clean voltage to delicate audio stages. It’s this mix of high-end, audiophile technology and the playability of our streaming system that gives  our new network players a staggering musical output.
