Taking the Future of Hi-Fi to Bristol

The first UK demonstrations of our new asynchronous USB DAC, the DAC-V1, and its matching power amplifier, the NAP 100, were very well received by visitors to room 118 at Sound & Vision - The Bristol Show this year. These products, which offer a simple way to get Naim Audio quality sound from your computer, will be available at your local retailer this month. Room 118 also played host to our reference network player, the NDS, paired with our new DR power supplies. The tickets for these closed demonstrations were fully booked for the entire weekend.

Our ‘The Future of Hi-Fi’ stand in the main ball room also proved incredibly popular with visitors to the show. It took them on a step by step journey through how to get the best possible sound quality from their music in the digital domain. The industry experts from Clarity were impressed enough to award us the ‘Best Stand In Open Areas’ prize.

If you attended any of our demonstrations in room 118 or in the main room we would love to hear what you thought on Facebook or Twitter. If you just want to take a closer look at what happened at the show check out our Bristol 2013 gallery on Facebook. The full playlist from the demonstrations in room 118 is also available below.
