Naim Audio

The best of both worlds

Introducing the latest addition to our core range of separates: the NAC-N 272 streaming preamplifier. 

The 272 combines some of the best Naim Audio innovations in digital audio technology with traditional analogue engineering. It has taken the combined expertise of our award-winning team of engineers to bring these two worlds together and create a compelling Naim Audio sound. 

The best of both worlds

The 272 is a high-quality Naim Audio preamplifier. Its fundamental electronic design is inspired by the NAC 552 preamplifier and its volume control is derived from the flagship Statement NAC S1 preamplifier. The preamp uses quality, hand-matched components and great care has been taken to protect the sensitive analogue parts from the power supply and digital circuitry.

Alongside this performance the 272 boasts an impressive array of inputs. This includes high-resolution (up to 24bit/192kHz) UPnP streaming, Spotify Connect, iRadio, Bluetooth (aptX), USB, multiroom and an optional DAB/FM module. Six digital and three analogue inputs cover integration with a wide range of sources from CD and games consoles to phonostages. It’s also performance upgradable with the addition of a Naim Audio XP5 XS, XPS or 555 PS power supply and is the first Naim Audio product to offer DSD64 compatibility. 

We will be offering DSD64 compatibility to existing owners of the following products featuring the SHARC DSP: the ND5 XS, NDX and NDS network players and the SuperUniti all-in-one player. More information will be released on the availability of this free software update in due course. 

The NAC-N 272 will be making its UK debut at the Bristol Show this weekend. Make sure you book your ticket here to be one of the first to hear it. It will be available for demonstration at your local Naim Audio retailer this March.
