Naim HDX-SSD Hard Disk Player

The Naim HDX-SSD is a variant of the world's first, performance-upgradeable, audiophile hard disk player: the HDX. HDX-SSD contains a Solid State Drive (SSD), while the standard HDX has an internal hard disk storage drive. HDX-SSD caters for the music lover with an extensive collection and is designed to save all ripped music to Network Attached Storage (NAS) enabling almost infinite storage capability. Like HDX, HDX-SSD is first and foremost a music player. HDX-SSD reads audio data from a CD, copying and storing it to NAS.

When a CD is inserted in the HDX-SSD disc drawer it is read repeatedly until a bit-perfect CD-quality copy of the audio is obtained. Thanks to a network connection this is then stored onto NAS. The internet connection also means your HDX-SSD will automatically catalogue your CDs at artist, album and track level, enabling the simplest search and selection when you come to play your music, which of course is replayed with an utterly uncompromised sound quality.

HDX-SSD is IP-enabled and connected to your home network can form the heart of a IP-based multi-room set up, allowing access to music throughout your home.

HDX-SSD can also be controlled remotely via your iPhone with the n-Serve app, which is available to purchase from the app store.

Imagine your entire CD collection available for immediate replay at the touch of a screen with Naim CD player sound quality. You don't have to imagine anymore; the HDX-SSD has arrived.
