The NAC 332 has a powered DIN socket for connection with the NVC TT phono stage. The front panel has a ¼ inch headphone socket. Behind the socket is a 1.5W state-of-the-art headphone amplifier. On the rear panel, twin outputs of XLR and RCA allow connection to a variety of power amplifiers, or the ability to bi-amp.
Under the leadership of their Technical Director, Naim's engineers have developed innovative electronic circuits to give the New Classic products excellent audio performance. The best components have been auditioned for their audio performance, such as through-hole resistors used in the volume control. The architecture of the Statement volume control is carried over to the NAC 332, using reed relays to switch between the volume resistors. This ensures premium sound quality, the ability to have adjustable input sensitivity and the capability to set a maximum volume level.
Naim products are designed to be both contemporary and timeless. Our creations forgo any unnecessary embellishment that would detract from the performance and sound quality. The NAC 332 combines a sleek design, premium materials, adjustable logo brightness and engineered touch points such as the precision raced bearing volume control.
