Like the flagship Naim Statement and the NAP 500, the NAP 300 is a multi-chassis amplifier. Two part in this case, one box containing the audio amplifier and the second housing the power supply.
Improved earthing arrangements have resulted in a better circuit layout built on very high quality, anti-resonance main audio circuit board. The big news however is that the NAP 300DR uses the same 009 transistors that were custom-designed for the awesome Statement amplification. These have then been treated to the latest DR (Discrete Regulator) power supply technology to supply them with abundant clean power. The subsequent reduction in internal noise allows for greater low level detail and even better rhythm & timing – something the original NAP300 already had in spades!
The familiar anti-vibration, resonance-controlling feet and substantial chassis remain to protect the sensitive internal components from resonance and microphonic vibration.
A variable speed, virtually noiseless cooling fan is mounted on a large internal heat sink providing long-term stability and the ability to swing a massive 500 VA on transients. The NAP 300DR is stable into any load and able to drive a difficult load for long periods of time.
The Naim NAP 300DR continues to deliver immense power without sacrificing any speed or agility to provide awe-inspiring levels of detail, ambient information and musicality.
