NAIM DAC REVIEWS
“the DAC has all the usual attributes of the Naim sound (a very ordered, dynamic and musically-focused presentation) but also comes with the sort of performance aspects that would charm any other brand of audiophile (great stereo, image depth, scale and tonal accuracy)” Hi-Fi Plus
“Sure, the DAC was digging out far more information and was constructing a three-dimensional acoustic, but the biggest leap forward was in terms of the sheer communicative ability” Hi-Fi Plus
“Its clarity, insight, depth, space and natural musicality is far more than would be expected at the price, and better than the great majority of DACs currently on sale.” Hi-Fi World
The Naim DAC marks a technical milestone comparable to our first CD player, the CDS. The CDS demonstrated that CD replay and lifelike music reproduction were not mutually exclusive. Now, the Naim DAC demonstrates that the jitter and noise that bedevil traditional external digital to analogue converters can be overcome and a new route to the real enjoyment of music opened. The Naim DAC provides eight S/PDIF inputs, two USB inputs, and is capable of handling audio data sampled at up to 768kHz and with up to 24bit resolution. It not only brings all the digital inputs together into the analogue domain, but does so with a level of performance that can compete with the finest from any Naim CD player to provide unrivalled musical fulfilment.
Listening to the Naim DAC is a revelation. Music, whether its source be an iPod, a CD or a high resolution data file, is presented afresh, with more definition, more insight, more warmth, and simply more of those hard to-define clues of rhythm, melody and emotion that distinguish the real thing from pale imitation. The Naim DAC is an advance that brings real music in the home closer to reality than ever before.
