The NDX 2 network player was developed primarily for its audio performance. In combination with Naim’s bespoke streaming platform, an upgraded DAC has been implemented along with discrete analogue stages. These and numerous other improvements over its acclaimed predecessor make the NDX 2 a sonic force to be reckoned with!

The streaming section of the NDX 2 uses the latest Naim network card featuring low noise, high-speed low-voltage differential signalling (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 before it’s fed to the Burr-Brown DAC.

The Burr-Brown® PCM1792A digital-to-analogue converter working alongside this new streaming platform is one of the best available. Naim improved its performance even further by implementing their own digital filters and adding a discrete current-to voltage converter immediately after the DAC.

The NDX 2 features an integrated low-noise power supply with a custom-designed toroidal transformer and separate windings for the digital and analogue sections. However, the player can be upgraded with an external XPS DR or 555 PS DR power supply, giving you a marked increase in sonic authority and emotion.

NDX 2 in common with other models from Naim offers numerous ways to listen to your music with clarity and precision.

During the development of the NDX 2, engineers examined every detail, from mechanical construction, component selection and board layout. The result is a network player worthy of the Naim badge, with a sound that’s rich, detailed and thoroughly engaging.
