Comprised of the Naim NAC S1 preamplifier and the Naim NAP S1 mono power amplifiers, the Naim Statement represents the state of the art in audio technology and artistry.
A new reference standard in high-end audio and music reproduction…
The idea for an entirely new kind of amplifier was first conceived by Naim engineers over a decade ago, and development began in earnest in 2011. The objective was to set a new reference standard in high-end audio and music reproduction.
The result is Statement. Three years of relentless questioning, iterative design and a point blank refusal to accept no as an answer.
Naim Statement NAC S1 preamplifier
The NAC S1 and NAP S1 share the same fundamental layout.
The noisy power supply is housed in the base and sensitive electronics are nestled above. Each section is divided by an acrylic centre-piece that blocks interaction. Top section electronics are separated further still, with internal chambers isolating individual stages.
Naim Statement NAP S1 Power Amplifier
The Statement NAP S1 features a new bridged dual design with zero global feedback. The two stages are physically separated to optimise the amplifier circuit with the delicate voltage stage at the very top of the power amplifier, away from the current stage at the bottom.
Each mono power amplifier uses a huge 4000VA transformer to power speakers with precisely 746W (into 8 ohms). Precision engineering also makes sure every single watt is delivered right to where it’s needed, when it’s needed. After all, power is nothing without purpose.
