Naim have embraced network streaming fully, and with the Naim NDX they present their high end network solution; a network player capable of delivering sound quality above and beyond the normal, and delivering quality on line and even above Naim's own high end CD players - one of the few products that is destined to convince audiophiles to go digital!

Beneath NDX versatility lies one of the most technically ambitious and accomplished of all Naim products. The wide variety of digital audio data streams and signal types, and the necessity that each one is delivered to the NDX outputs with maximum fidelity, demanded first that many new and innovative techniques for electronic signal isolation had to be developed and refined.

The full spectrum of Naim's uniquely advanced digital signal handling and processing techniques is also deployed in the NDX. The NDX uses, for example, the same RAM buffer and master-clock jitter removal technique of the Naim DAC outboard digital to analogue converter. It employs the same Burr Brown digital to analogue converter chip as fitted to the HDX hard disk player, and all the oversampling, filtering and signal management techniques that have brought Naim to the forefront of digital music in the home. Component selection and layout on the six layer main PCB is entirely optimised for sound quality and the classic Naim extruded non-magnetic aluminium case and chassis construction ensures microphony is minimised. NDX is a true audiophile product where maximising sound quality drives every development decision.

As with every Naim product, fastidious attention to power supply noise and regulation is a fundamental element of NDX performance. A massive mains transformer, oversize smoothing capacitors, independent power supplies and multiple regulators, along with painstakingly meticulous PCB layout and earthing topology, ensure minimal power supply noise.
