Introducing the new Naim Classic 200 series full system. The Naim NSC 222 is a multi-talented streaming pre-amplifier that lets you keep things simple with without compromising on musical quality. Partnering the NCS 222 with the NPX 300 power supply and the new NAP 250 power amplifier guarantees your new 200 series system runs at the highest level for the ultimate ‘just add speakers’ system.

Naim NCS 222 & NAP 250 & NPX 300 System

Designed, precision engineered and made in the UK, the NCS 222 features exceptional streaming performance from Spotify, TIDAL, Qobuz, Apple Music, a world of internet radio and more, with support for bitrates up to 32bit 284kHz. Using the NCS 222 preamplifier with the NPX 300 powers supply disables the internal power supply of the NCS 222 immediately reducing the noise floor – and provides a superior transformer and cleaner power guaranteeing your system runs at the highest level.

The new Naim NAP 250 is a dual-mono power amplifier, with full power regulation.  It delivers 100 watts of A/B class power per channel, fully adjustable to set your music free in the most remarkable way. First appearing in 1975, NAP 250 has become an iconic product. Today, the new NAP 250 delivers more power than ever and offers ever more flexibility within a complete system. The cutting-edge engineering work involved in the NAP 250 results in unrivalled performance.


NSC 222 Preamplifier / Network Player

The NSC 222 is fully controllable via the Focal & Naim App and the supplied smart Zigbee remote-control handset (no line of sight required) or via the unit itself: the illuminated volume control is a joy to use.

Vinyl Enthusiast 

The NSC 222 has an integrated MM phono stage.

The NSC 222 features Naim’s latest headphone technology as featured in the multi-award-winning Uniti Atom Headphone Edition, for a sublime solo-listening experience. Everything you’re enjoying listening to is beautifully displayed on a larger, 5.5" full-colour screen.

NPX 300 power supply

Take your musical experience to the next level with the NPX 300 power supply: an instant upgrade for the NSC 222 streaming pre-amplifier. It disables the internal power supply – immediately reducing the noise floor further still – and provides superior, cleaner power

Naim NAP 250

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.

Key points

  • Statement volume control architecture using reed relays. Premium sound quality of fixed resistor volume control, providing precise channel balance. This miniaturised version of the Statement volume control uses super smooth fly-by-wire optical encoder with precision ball raced bearing.

  • Reed relay input switching

  • Single ended discrete transistor class A input buffers and filter circuits; using hand soldered polystyrene capacitors.

  • Built in high quality MM phono stage

  • 5.5 inch colour display • Configurable inputs: Input sensitivity pre-set, naming, AV bypass mode and unused input disabling.

  • Uses Naim’s latest NP800 streaming card with LVDS balanced digital signals for low noise. Stream internet radio stations, music from Spotify Connect, Apple Music, Tidal (and Tidal Connect), Qobuz, AirPlay 2, Chromecast, UPnP servers, USB attached storage and Roon ready.

  • aptX Adaptive Bluetooth

  • App control continuity from Mu-so through to Classic range.

  • Multi-room capability with other Naim streaming products (right up to Classic range and 500 Series).

  • ZigBee RF bi-directional remote control, line of sight not needed, volume changes reflected on the remote.

  • Dual optical 3.5mm inter-product communications for synchronised standby and lighting, compatible with the new NAP250 power amplifier.

  • Twin fixed frequency (44.1kHz and 48kHz based sample rates) master clocks for ultra low jitter. Runs in clock master mode for streaming services.

  • DSP RAM buffer for SP/DIF inputs, eliminates jitter caused by SP/DIF modulation (4x SP/DIF inputs).

  • Naim’s proprietary DSP 705.6kHz/768kHz integer oversampling filter.

  • PCM1791A DAC (running in external filter mode) followed by discrete transistor class A op-amps and filters. Custom polystyrene ultralow dielectric absorption Post DAC filter components.

  • PSU upgrade with NPX 300 via two Burndy cables (one digital and one analogue).

  • 0.5W standby power Using two internal power supplies; one is a high quality audiophile linear type, based on a large toroidal transformer. The other is a highly efficient SMPSU for 0.5W power consumption in standby during standby mode.

  • Galvanic isolation of control and audio circuits
