Crafted for pure musical performance, Statement is the pinnacle of Naim’s engineering knowledge and artistry.
The ground-breaking series comprises the NAC S1 Preamplifier and NAP S1 Mono Power Amplifiers.
Statement perfectly represents Naim's philosophy of providing the highest quality power supply, while isolating individual sections to avoid unwanted interference. The NAC S1 and NAP S1 share the same fundamental layout. The noisy power supply is housed in the base and sensitive electronics are 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 optimize 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). Precision engineering also makes sure every single watt is delivered right to where it's needed, when it's needed. After all, power is nothing without purpose.
Statement's radically different aesthetic may seem like a departure from Naim Audio tradition but it's the ultimate expression of everything they represent. The imposing monolithic structure with its stark silhouette is offset by the organic sculptural flow of the heat sink and the beautifully lit volume control and central divide. This duality in the design reflects how Naim's pursuit of technical brilliance is always grounded in the abstract human experience of music.
If it's the best amplifier in the world in lab tests only half the job is done - it's in the listening room where it really counts.
