Introducing the NDS network player

Naim Audio has announced a new addition to its network player range: the NDS. The new reference network player joins the NDX and ND5 XS and completes Naim Audio's range of streaming separates sources.

The NDS is a genuine audiophile source, capable of playing and streaming audio over the home network at up to 24bit/192kHz resolution. It offers internet radio and forgoes a DAB and FM radio tuner to minimise noise for optimised performance. It includes three S/PDIF digital inputs for connection to external digital sources, such as a computer or CD player. A front-panel USB port completes the feature set allowing playback of USB-stored audio, even hi-resolution WAV or FLAC files. The NDS will support all the main file formats. WAV, FLAC, AIFF, ALAC, AAC, Windows Media-formatted content, Ogg Vorbis and MP3 files are all catered for, as is gapless playback.

In true Naim Audio reference engineering style, the NDS requires the use of an external power supply. The XP5 XS, XPS and 555 PS are all suitable matches. Performance can be further enhanced by the addition of a second Burndy cable (in the case of 555 PS only) splitting out the analogue and digital sections, which a second 555 PS will bring about even greater gains.

Like its fellow network players, the NDS can be controlled by Naim Audio's n-Stream control app for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. The app also alows control of a Naim Audio system's inputs and volume. The supplied remote and front-panel interface provide simple and easily accessed control.
