Naim Solstice turntableA New Dawn For Music
Naim Audio has proudly designed and handcrafted music systems in the historic English city of Salisbury for almost 50 years. Just outside the city lies the World Heritage site of Stonehenge, its Neolithic standing stones perfectly framing the movements of the sun. Naim didn’t need to look far for naming inspiration for their very Special Edition, nor did they need to deviate from their heritage. Although Solstice is Naim’s first turntable, they have been venerating vinyl since their beginning, in the late 1960s.
If you love the organic authenticity of vinyl, you can now finally enjoy it with the musical purity and passion only a Naim system can deliver. Welcome to a new dawn for analog music!
Naim Solstice turntable — A timeless Naim design
Naim products aim to be both timeless and contemporary. Their designs eschew unnecessary visual adornment that does not serve performance goals. Solstice Special Edition design is functionally coherent, encourages use, is sharp, and wears its innovative materials and design solutions with pride.
Naim Solstice Turntable Special Edition
Limited to just 500 units, this Special Edition includes the Solstice turntable, a next-generation version of the iconic Naim Aro tonearm, an Equinox MC cartridge, Solstice Series Phono Stage, Power Supply and a bespoke accessories set. The Solstice turntable combines core Naim design philosophies, such as multiple levels of mechanical decoupling, with a celebration of beautiful materials. It features a magnetic bearing supporting a high-mass, highly polished aluminum platter, with a unique, self-calibrating motor drive system, meticulously delivering the Naim sound.
The Special Edition package also includes a commemorative book, plus the Naim Records True Stereo album – a curated collection of superb-quality True Stereo recordings, newly remastered for vinyl.
Engineered with Swiss-watch precision
The Equinox cartridge’s Moving Coil (MC) inner assembly sits in a solid aluminium housing machined from a single billet. A raked silver polished chamfer passes over the black cartridge edges, simultaneously communicating the unseen facets of the diamond stylus and giving a nod to heritage Naim ‘chrome bumper’ designs.
Phono Stage NVC TT
With the goal of making a glorious-sounding phono stage that was also easy and flexible to use, Naim referenced previous designs such as SuperLine, but also the pinnacle of Naim engineering: their Statement amplifier. The Solstice Series Phono Stage is the first to feature the Discrete Regulators developed for that flagship.
Power Supply NPX TT
The Solstice Series Power Supply is a bespoke design that powers both the turntable and the phono stage. For the ultimate performance, these two different power supplies are completely isolated, with no risk of interference.
Precision engineered by Naim and Clearaudio
While the Solstice Series NVC TT phono stage and NPX TT power supply are hand-crafted in Salisbury, the NVS TT turntable, ARO arm and Equinox cartridge are exactingly manufactured to Naim’s unique design by Clearaudio.
