Naim Audio is one of the most commercially successful British audio companies today. Its success comes simply from equipment that recreates recorded music with unerring precision. Neither adding nor subtracting anything from the original performance.
Since the company’s foundation, Naim Audio has relentlessly pursued the same, single, outwardly simple aim: to recreate the performance a musician has recorded accurately and with all of the information wholly intact. That means that not only must the musical notes be faithfully preserved but so must the emotion and passion that inspired the performance.
What makes Naim stand out cannot be conveyed in numbers alone: what measurement, for example, reveals how one singer’s phrasing is more evocative than another’s or that one guitarist plays more fluently than another?
NAIM AUDIO SOUND
Pace, rhythm and timing are elements that always crop up whenever enthusiasts discuss Naim Audio and these terms attempt to describe the equipment’s phenomenal temporal acuity, which is only appreciated by hearing how precisely it arranges notes in time and gives music its natural, lyrical flow. It’s not unlike the difference between a drum machine and a real drummer. The former might have militaristic precision but it has no feel, no sense of any human involvement. Naim excels in revealing such nuances.
This, along with its pitch accuracy and tonal faithfulness, probably explains why many discerning musicians feature among the great many that have chosen Naim Audio equipment exclusively to enjoy music in their homes and studios.
