The NAC 282 preamplifier introduced a new level of technical and musical performance along with elegant styling. Hundreds of hours were spent listening to new designs and topologies, ensuring that the harmony between music and technology was always maintained.

The included NAPSC power supply independently powers the digital and control circuits while the audio circuits are fed either from a NAP 155 XS or NAP 200 power amplifier or from a stand-alone power supply such as the HiCap or SuperCap. The NAC 282 combines truly awe-inspiring sound quality, with user selectable features and flexibility that ensure it will function as the heart of a high quality hi-fi system for many years.

Two of the six inputs on the Naim NAC 282 can be configured either as the usual DIN inputs, preferred for their superior earthing and impedance matching, or for use with the more common RCA phono connectors, allowing a wide range of non-Naim cables and components to be used. A dedicated unity-gain input is provided for use with the Naim AV2 processor or similar.

Six line-level inputs including two user-configurable versatile (DIN/ phono) inputs.
User configurable unity-gain AV input.
Powered input for use with StageLine or SuperLine phono stage.
Full infrared remote control.
RC5 input for wired remote control in complex installations.
Optional RS232 input/output for use in full home automation systems.
Upgradeable with both analogue (Hi-Cap, Super-Cap) and digital (NAPSC) power supplies.
