For sale is a Brand New and Never Opened Naim Solstice Special Edition Turntable. This highly-sought after turntable was originally intended for my former Naim Reference System in my home and by the time my Solstice allocation finally arrived (1 year later :-)) my Naim system was sold off. Since I no longer need it, I might as well pass it along to someone who can appreciate this highly coveted and highly limited unit.

If you're a fan of Naim and reference analog hi-fi then you already know that it is virtually impossible to find this turntable on the retail market - particularly in Brand-New condition. All 500 units of the first and only turntable Naim has ever produced were immediately sold out upon announcement. Don't miss out on your opportunity experience the Naim Solstice Special Edition reference turntable!

The Solstice comes in Unopened Original Packaging and includes Turntable, Tone Arm and pre-fitted Cartridge, Phono Stage, Power Supply & All Accessories. It will ship by insured freight, strapped and shrink-wrapped to a skid, to ensure it arrives in good condition to its new owner.

Solstice

A 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. We didn’t need to look far for naming inspiration for this very Special Edition, nor did we need to deviate from our own heritage: although Solstice is our first turntable, we have been venerating vinyl since the genesis of Naim 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 music.


Solstice 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 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 aluminium 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.



A timeless Naim design

Naim products aim to be both timeless and contemporary. Our designs eschew unnecessary visual adornment that do not serve performance goals. Solstice Special Edition design is functionally coherent, encourages use, sharp - almost brutalist - and wears its innovative materials and design solutions with pride.




A legacy that lives on

Our founder, Julian Vereker often considered a Naim-designed turntable. Tragically, he never realised his plans before his untimely death in 2000. However, his legacy lives on with this project and the team behind Solstice Special Edition.


From then to now

Even after the arrival of CD in the 1980s, Naim continued to champion vinyl, producing the iconic ARO tone arm in 1989. Aro has always set a benchmark in terms of delivering incredibly natural, organic and lifelike musical performances. Its design allows the cartridge to extract enormous amounts of the information from the grooves of a vinyl record, but with an incredible sense of flow and correctness to the resulting sound.



High quality materials for improved performance

Updating Aro for Solstice Special Edition involved retaining the original’s design principles and excellence, but boosting performance further still by using improved materials – including tungsten and carbon-fibre - and adding an all-new, no compromise bias, arm height and azimuth adjustments.



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, we referenced previous designs such as SuperLine, but also the pinnacle of Naim engineering: our Statement amplifier. The Solstice Series Phono Stage is the first to feature the Discrete Regulators developed for that flagship.



Unique know-how

Led by our Technical Director (Electronics), Steve Sells, Naim's expert engineers designed simple but elegant circuits, fed by our acclaimed high-performance DR tech, which provides the smooth, stable power supply that’s vital for next-level performance. Our production technicians then take premium components and fanatically measure, select and match them for ultimate accuracy.



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.
