Up for sale is a Naim Nait XS in excellent condition. i am the second owner of this previously little used showroom demo unit. Amazing audio quality.
A snippet from 6Moons review of this integrated amp sums it up well.
" Naim's integrated is quite the wake up call, injecting a goodly dose of rhythmic drive without going overboard. Besides its sonic virtues, there's extensive socketry, an upgrade path, flawless fit and, not least, a fair price/performance quota. If you're shopping this price class, the Naim Nait XS definitely deserves an audition."
Paired this with my KEF LS-50's and really made them sing!
Summary of features:
* The Naim Nait XS is tonally balanced toward the earthy substantial side.
* The bass is well developed, deep, energetic, growly when necessary and always articulate and on time. Anything but a wallflower or fun killer.
* The treble is more polite than maximally lit up and illuminated.
* This amp is very lively, with micro/macro dynamics well above its class. Music gains excitement and, desired or not, commands attention to dish out involvement and get the toes tapping.
* Equally good then are rhythmic and timing fidelity without intruding into proper flow by foreshortening tones. There's flow and articulation.
* Soundstaging is realistically proportioned and particularly incarnated body is praiseworthy. The actors rather step towards than away from the listener into the distance which matches the vital core trait.
