Technology & Craft
Like the NDX, the ND5 XS is one of the most technically advanced and accomplished of all Naim Audio products. The use of numerous innovative techniques for electronic signal processing and isolation ensure that each digital audio data stream is delivered to the ND5 XS outputs with maximum fidelity. The ND5 XS uses the same RAM buffer and master-clock jitter removal technique of the Naim Audio DAC and all the oversampling, filtering and signal management techniques that have brought Naim Audio to the forefront of digital music in the home.
And the result of all this extraordinary technology is extraordinary music reproduction. Connect an ND5 XS to your existing audio system and the world of high resolution audio downloads, UPnP streaming, and the vast resource of internet radio are yours for the listening. And it's a world where music from any source will live, breath and satisfy – completely.
