Product Description

With the ND 555 Network Music Player Naim Audio has pushed the envelope further than ever before and produced a true state of the art streamer that combines a precise blend of high-speed digital componentry and rich analogue audio stages with precise use control and wonderful flexibility.

Overview

Naim’s latest network players have been engineered on the basis of a completely new streaming system. Three years in the making, this innovative, Naim-designed digital technology surpasses anything they’ve done before. Combining state-of-the-art DSP with a rich, analogue soul, these network players deliver engaging, immersive sound quality to get the very best out of your music, whilst retaining Naim's classic styling. The range includes the ND5 XS 2, NDX 2 and ND 555 – the first network player in the Naim 500 Series and the only one to match its power and audiophile-quality sound.

Over 40 Years Of Engineering: The new network players benefit from everything Naim have learned over the last four decades. From the state-of-the-art streaming module to powerful, natural-sounding audio stages – the design DNA runs through each model in the range and helps to give it that distinctive Naim sound. The ND 555 development process also helped Naim engineers step foot into new technologies: for the first time, they’ve added low-voltage differential signalling (LVDS) to a premium Naim player. Naim chose LVDS for its high-definition audio output, which offers faster processing and very low power consumption.

Extraordinary Design Inside & Out: With these new network players, Naim wanted to retain a classic look while integrating the latest technology and innovative new features. All of the models in the range use the familiar brushed metal exterior, while NDX 2 and ND 555 also include a 5” front-panel TFT display. Along with the Naim app, it’s the face of Naim’s seamless new streaming system, providing access to streaming services such as Spotify and TIDAL, internet radio, local sources and album artwork – in short, ultimate connectivity.

The Power To Upgrade: Whilst the 555 PS DR Power Supply is the designated companion for the ND 555 (it can’t run without one), those wanting to take things further can add a second 555 PS DR to take the ND 555’s music reproduction to the ultimate level. Then of course there is the small (not really) improvement achievable by adding lashings of Super Lumina cabling to caress those music signals into flowing smoothly around your system

Total Control At Your Fingertips: NDX 2 and ND 555 are supplied with their own Zigbee® remote controls (full metal in the case of the ND 555). They remove the need for line of sight, so you can take control whatever direction you’re facing or even from around the corner. You can also use the same remote for different Naim streamers – a new device can be paired in a matter of seconds. Both the ND 555 and NDX 2 also feature 5” TFT colour displays with proximity sensors, as well as four control buttons for added flexibility and streamlined usability.

The Naim App gives you effortless control over your network player: access all your music including radio stations, streaming services, and explore artist discographies and biographies. Convenient over-the-air software updates make it easy to add new functions at the touch of a button.
