Hugely capable and totally un-fazed by anything, if your room and speakers are up to it then so is this beast.

Naim’s entry level power amp is most certainly a chip off the old block. Poweful, beyond its modest size and musical in the extreme we just can’t help enjoying a system with this little beast and the rest of the ‘XS’ family. Any decent speakers, starting with Epos and Rega, moving up through Totem and… Read more »
