NAP 250 – THE ICONIC POWER AMP: BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER

The new Naim NAP 250 is a 100W per channel dual-model design, with full power regulation. It’s a party-proof design: its heatsink reacts as the volume increases, keeping things cool. Other enhancements include the addition of true balanced XLR connections, plus a range of trickle-down technology from Naim’s flagship Statement amplifier, including an eddy-current circuit breaker between the speaker outputs.

To drive the speakers – and music – of your choice to new heights, simply pair the NSC 222 with its perfect partner: the Naim NAP 250 power amplifier. In continuous production since 1975, the NAP 250 has gained iconic status. Featuring trickle-down technology from Naim’s flagship Statement amplifier, the new sixth-generation model delivers more power, even better performance, and greater system-matching flexibility.

To get the best out of your loudspeakers and music, combine the NSC 222 with its perfect partner: the NAP 250 power amplifier. First appearing in 1975, NAP 250 has become an iconic product.

It delivers 100 watts of A/B class power per channel, fully adjustable to set your music free in the most remarkable way.

The best of Naim

The cutting-edge design of the NAP 250 means it can be used even at high sound levels: its heat sink reacts to the increased volume, keeping the product “cool”. Other improvements include the addition of symmetrical XLR connections and a series of technologies derived from Naim's iconic Statement amplifier, including a eddy current separator available between the loudspeaker outputs. It also incorporates the Naim Audio DR (Discrete Regulator) technology found in the Statement, to benefit from the stable, fluid power supply we know to be essential.

Perfect integration in a complete system

The NAP 250 can be connected to any of the New Classic products, but also to the previous Classic lines using a new range of specific cabling. Above all, it is the perfect partner for the NSC 222 preamplifier and streamer.
