Naim ND5XS Network Streaming Player inc Bluetooth (Display Model)

The Naim ND5 XS is Naim's entry level network audio player with the potential to transform music in the home. The Naim ND5 Network player can play UPnP audio streams, internet radio, iPod or MP3 player and USB play back and three S PDIF inputs.

The Naim ND5 XS is a derivative of the NDX network player and is pitched at the XS Series performance level - CD-quality streaming (and beyond - up to 24bit 192kHz) with the performance promised by the Naim badge. The ND5 XS shares much of its digital and streaming board with the NDX; it makes use of the same DSP technology and has an identical digital signal path.

Hi-res audio is also big part of the ND5 XS offering. Users can enjoy 24 bit 192 kHz audio files played either from memory stick connected via the front-panel USB socket or streamed from UPnPTM-enabled devices over the home network.

A front-panel USB port caters for memory sticks and iPod &MP3 players. The Naim ND5 XS will take over the control, charging and display of stored audio. ND5 XS is also Apple authenticated enabling playback of iPad, iPhone, iPod stored digital media, bypassing the iPad, iPhone, iPod internal DAC for optimised performance.

The Naim ND5 XS can be controlled in three ways. It has a front-panel display and key mat interface and a remote control handset is also supplied. Naim's n-Stream FOC app can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store and offers full control of ND5 XS (alongside Naim's other streaming capable players, NDX, SuperUniti, NaimUniti and UnitiQute). The app also offers System Automation, enabling input and volume control of most Naim CD players, preamplifiers and Naim's digital to analogue converter within an existing Hi-Fi system.

The Naim ND5XS Network player can be upgradable by the addition of an external XPS or 555PS power supply and or an external digital to analogue convertor such as Naim's DAC. A matching slim-line power supply will be available next year. Please be aware that the ND5 XS can only be paired with XPS units in the classic series casing. Older olive series units are not compatible with the ND5 XS.

The Naim ND5 XS Network player would be added to an existing hi-fi system, most likely an XS series or non-Naim brand separates system, as a digital source. ND5 XS would connect straight into a preamplifier or integrated amplifier. You could still retain your CD player, which if it has a S/PDIF output can be connected to NDX's on board DAC removing the need to invest in a separate DAC. System automation via the n-Stream control app will enable control of the CD player. A hard disc server or player such as HDX or UnitiServe within their system which can also connect to ND5 XS. Either take a direct digital output via S/PDIF or connect via a network wired or wireless and stream from it. The ND5 XS is ideally paired with Naim's XS series pre-power combination of NAC 152 XS and NAP 155 XS, although combinations further up the Naim range would also suit ND5 XS
