The Naim Statement NAP-S1 monoblock power amplifier is one of the best audiophile amplifiers ever created. It has been designed in tandem with the NAC-S1 pre-amplifier without compromise and represents the pinnacle of engineering creativity and excellence from Naim Audio.

The idea for an entirely new kind of amplifier was first conceived by Naim engineers over a decade ago and development began in earnest in 2011. The objective was to set a new reference standard in high-end audio and music reproduction.

Three years of relentless questioning, iterative design and a point blank refusal to accept no as an answer has led to Statement!

Naim started with a blank sheet of paper and a vision: to create the ultimate amplifier. After the initial concept stage the engineering team set aside practical considerations and began to map out the product in free space. This creative freedom was then backed up by 3D computer models which confirmed the optimum position for each component. To accommodate this new layout Statement pioneers a new vertical structure. It was determined that this was the best way to minimise electromagnetic and mechanical interference and maximise thermal performance.

The NAP S1 in common with the matching NAC S1 pre-amplifier uses this new layout with the noisy power supply housed in the base and the sensitive electronics nestled above. Each section is divided by an acrylic centre-piece that blocks interaction. Top section electronics are separated further still, with internal chambers isolating individual stages.

The Statement NAP S1 features a new bridged dual design with zero global feedback. The two stages are physically separated to optimise the amplifier circuit with the delicate voltage stage at the very top of the power amplifier, away from the current stage at the bottom. Each mono power amplifier uses a huge 4000VA transformer to power speakers with precisely 746W (into 8 ohms).

The distinctive ‘wave’ heat sinks begin life as a solid billet of untreated aluminium, which is cut to size and machined to achieve the curved profile. The fins are then cut using a five-axis, temperature-controlled, CNC machine. It takes three hours for the finished shape to emerge.

Once each piece is individually machined, it is painstakingly hand-polished and quality inspected. Then it is acid dipped and finished largely by hand to ensure the ultimate quality demanded for a product of this stature.

This human touch extends to each and every sound-critical component where positioning and soldering is completed by hand by skilled technicians at the Naim facility in Wiltshire, England
