Naim – ND5 XS

Naim ND5 XS

ND5 XS – Streamlined for digital music

The ND5 XS is our introduction to network music streaming, but still benefits from classic Naim audio engineering principles and fastidious attention to detail in every aspect of its layout and design.

It also loses none of the flexibility or functionality of its illustrious siblings. High-resolution UPnP network streaming, Spotify Connect built-in, USB/iPod playback, access to thousands of internet radio stations, DAB/FM radio, digital inputs for external sources, multiroom streaming and a bespoke iOS and Android control app will get you listening to more music than ever before.

Three 24bit/192kHz capable digital inputs (S/PDIF) to support optimum connection to external sources

Spotify Connect built-in to stream millions of songs from the world’s most popular streaming service

Front-panel USB port for replay of MP3 player/iPod and USB-stored audio

Technology & Craft

Like the NDX, the ND5 XS is one of the most technically advanced and accomplished of all Naim 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 DAC and all the oversampling, filtering and signal management techniques that have brought Naim 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.

Please note: only current “Classic” style XPS power supplies can be used with the ND5 XS. Older “Olive” style XPS units are incompatible and cannot be used.
