Technology & Craft

We have a rich history in radio. One of our very first products, the NAM 502 loudspeaker, was specifically designed for use by then start-up station Capital Radio in 1973. It was a natural progression for us to design tuners that would capture and preserve every nuance of the medium. The NAT 101 of 1986 was an early example. What earned these tuners such a loyal following was the simplicity of design and quality of sound - traits that put their successors in good stead to lead the high-end market all the way up to the current NAT05 XS.
