Naim NDS Network Player

Naim Audio has a special place in British audio, thanks to it's founder and inspirational leader Julian Vereker, a hugely talented mechanical and electronic engineer with a passion for, amongst many things, music. Founded in 1973, Naim has always had a firm philosophy of music first, measurements second - each Naim product is extensively auditioned as part of the product development process to make sure that it delivers clear, emotional music making ability.

Naim products are designed to bring the closest facsimile of a live music event into your home listening environment, to give you maximum pleasure from your music collection. Many of the Naim products are evolutions of previous designs, incorporating sometimes quite small changes to the mechanical or electronic design - however, these incremental changes make a large overall improvement in the music performance of each product. 

The NDS has been designed and engineered by Naim Audio for the discerning audiophile who wishes to experience the convenience, versatility and functionality of streaming, but refuses to compromise on sound quality. Enhanced the latest standard in high resolution network audio, the NDS takes your wireless digital sources and raises the bar to high-end status.

At the centre of NDS' brain centres are reference-level Burr Brown PCM1704 precision, laser-trimmed DAC chipsets. Capable of decoding audio to 32/bit-192kHz audio, any music file streamed to the NDS is decoded to the best possible quality from that source file, regardless of audio format. The NDS is able to play music from a multitude of streaming services, including Spotify Connect, TIDAL, Internet Radio, etc while also guaranteeing an unbeatable performance from music kept on your PC or NAS drive.
