Naim NAIT XS 2 Integrated Amplifier
The next step up the performance ladder from the Naim Nait 5Si, the all new Nait XS 2 packs more power than ever before, but it can still display a delicate musical approach when the music requires. With 70 watts into eight ohms available, the XS 2 is dynamic and full of expression and can drive almost all loudspeakers on the market to realistic levels even in the largest rooms.
In addition to increased power reserves, the XS 2 has a number of other internal refinements designed solely to increase the fidelity of the audio signal as it passes through the amplifier to the speakers. A new ceramic heat sink is much more efficient at dissipating excess heat from the output transistors, thanks to increased surface area exposed to the air due to it's micro-pore surface structure, giving the amplifier less thermal distortion and greater long term reliability.
Six line level analog inputs are featured on the rear panel, where connections can be made either by RCA phono or 5 pin DIN. All inputs are isolated and switched by precision reed relays, the coils of which are fed from very low noise constant current sources, which virtually eliminates any undesired crosstalk to the audio signals. The audio circuitry has a number of custom film capacitors in series and parallel with the audio signal to improve sound quality. A multi-layer military grade printed circuit board now houses virtually all components except the massive capacity toroidal power transformer, leading to much shorter critical signal paths.
The Nait XS 2 retains the slim, elegant alloy casework of it's predecessor, which helps eliminate the transmission of any environmental electromagnetic interference or radiation, keeping the signal paths free from noise and hum.
A front panel headphone socket is fed from it's own dedicated, discrete component class A headphone amplifier with zero crossover distortion, enabling users of headphones to enjoy their full performance without needing to purchase an external headphone amp.
As you would expect from a well conceived Naim product, there exists a number of power supply upgrade options which elevate the XS 2's performance further - your choice of the FlatCap XS, Hi Cap and Super Cap can be added at anytime in the future to keep the music reproduction improving.
