The ND555 sits at the top of the latest range of network players released from Naim Audio based on a completely new streaming system. Three years in the making, this innovative, Naim-designed digital technology surpasses anything from the stable previously. Combining state-of-the-art DSP with a rich, analogue sound quality, this network player delivers engaging, immersive sound quality

The ND 555 is the first network player in the Naim 500 Series and the only one to match its power and audiophile-quality sound. It is also the first new 500 series product to be released for 12 years joining a very elite club.

The streaming section uses the latest Naim network card featuring low-noise, high-speed LVDS to route the digital audio signal. The higher speed is capable of decoding all HD audio formats at up to 32 bits/384 kHz or DSD128. Rather than the source acting as the digital timing master, the new streaming board turns things around and allows the DAC clock to control the flow of audio data. The data is integer-over-sampled in a SHARC DSP to an incredible 40-bit accuracy and fed into the Burr-Brown® PCM1704, a true R2R ladder DAC valued for its exceptional sound quality. Naim’s renowned DR regulator technology, as used in their range of amplifiers and power supplies, makes its first appearance in a network player, providing ultra-pure DC voltage to the sensitive audio circuitry in the ND 555. The analogue stages use only high-grade through-hole components and are suspended on sprung sub-chassis with heavy brass plates to minimise the effects of microphony.

ND555 offers numerous ways to listen to your music with clarity and precision.

ND555 retains the classic Naim look while integrating the latest technology and innovative new features. ND 555 includes a 5” front-panel TFT display with proximity sensors, as well as four control buttons for added flexibility and streamlined usability. This interface along with the Naim app presents the face of their 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.

ND 555 is supplied with its own Zigbee® remote control that does not require line of sight to operate and in fact can be paired to more than one streamer in a matter of seconds. The ND555 will also require one or two 555PS power supplies in order to operate as it is a head unit only without built in power supply.
