A full 9 years before we first opened our doors in 1960, Stefan Kudelski, a gifted 22-year-old engineer, developed an extremely high quality, miniature, self-contained audio recorder which he named simply the “Nagra I”. Nagra is a Polish word meaning “will record”. The interest in his invention was immediate. The Nagra II and III followed in the mid to late ‘50s revolutionizing the world of radio broadcasting, cinema and music. NAGRA products are designed and manufactured by Audio Technology Switzerland in the Lake Geneva region. The NAGRA high end range of outstanding HiFi products redefine sound reproduction for the home. Superlative, design, build quality and listening pleasure
THE HIGH END COLLECTION
emotions underlying their work.
A true High End set-up will disappear behind the music
to let you immerse yourself in pure feeling and emotion.
Inspired by the legendary Nagra recorder that gave these products their unique sound and size, the Classic Line is the essence of Nagra. These devices are compact, refined and based on an engineering approach of “form follows function”. There is nothing fancy or superfluously decorative about them. Each control or button has a function and is derived from the world of professional recording. The build quality, touch and feel are what you would expect from the best Swiss watch makers.
NAGRA CLASSIC PREAMP
Classic Class A tube stereo preamplifier
Nagra’s engineers have taken as a starting point the critically acclaimed Nagra JAZZ preamplifier and, incorporating elements of the design philosophy that characterises the HD DAC, have created a preamplifier that delivers even more performance and musicality for an exceptional listening experience.
The CLASSIC PREAMP is the ideal partner for the Nagra CLASSIC AMP and CLASSIC DAC.
NAGRA TUBE DAC
The Nagra TUBE DAC is a no-compromise D/A converter that can reproduce DSD 256 and 384 kHz PCM signals with an unparalleled natural rendition.
Following the path to high definition sound laid down by the world-acclaimed HD DAC, we wanted to offer the latest sampling frequencies and resolution. We took the opportunity of extending the HD DAC X project with a whole new digital interface and converter to update and upgrade the HD DAC.
The new digital core is built on the experience gained from the HD DAC. The design features an entirely new converter as well as a new USB interface. The result is highly impressive and also a major improvement in every format, even regular red-book CD through S/P Dif, for instance.
NAGRA CLASSIC AMP
NAGRA CLASSIC AMP High power solid-state stereo amplifier
The Nagra CLASSIC AMP was designed for extremely high quality installations, which require high power while maintaining a perfect musical delivery of the Watts.
The unit operates in pure class A over a very large power band and beyond in class AB. Each of the output stages is based on tandem MOSFET transistors of exceptional characteristics.
