A NAIM hi-fi és high-end rendszereket hoz létre, amelyek túlmutatnak a hangon, és mélyebb, magabiztosabb hangzást nyújtanak Önnek. Hadd szóljon a NAIM hangja a zenében.
A NAIM alapítója, Julian Vereker MBE (1945-2000) volt versenyautó-vezető, vállalkozó és autodidakta mérnök akit mély szenvedély fűzött a zenéhez. Szabadidejét az 1960-as években barátai koncetjeinek hallgatásával és azok rögzítésével töltötte. Julian úgy találta, hogy a felvételek messze nem olyan élményt nyújtottak az otthoni rendszerén, mint a koncertek alatt.
A második legjobbal nem volt elégedett, így úgy döntött, hogy megtervezi saját erősítőit és hangsugárzóit, figyelmen kívül hagyva az addig elfogadott tapasztalatokat és tudást, és olyan előadásmódra koncentrált, amely a zenét életre keltette. Ezek az első tervezések megteremtették számos ikonikus és díjnyertes Naim hi-fi termék alapját, melyek a következő évszázadra is átnyúltak.

 

Ennek a 40 éves mérnöki és kézműves technika által támasztott megközelítésnek köszönhetően a cég napjainkban is fejlődik. Válassza a NAIM-et, hogy mélyebben megismerkedjen a zenéivel, egy teljesen magával ragadó zenehallgatási élményért.
Az angol NAIM már hosszú évek óta a nemzetközi audiofil és high-end piac meghatározó résztvevője.
Termékeit a cég Salisbury-ben található központjában tervezik illetve fejlesztik és a Mu-So széria kivételével az összeset itt is gyártják. A NAIM a saját tradícionális szabványainak és az egyedi tervezési eljárásainak a megtartása mellett mára az audiofil piac vezető cégévé vált mind a brit, mind pedig az európai piacon. Ezt annak is köszönhetik, hogy mindíg is hűek maradtak a tradícionális gyökereikhez, de emellett rengeteget invesztáltak a mai modern streaming technológiákba. A hálózatos Mu-So és Uniti szériáknak, illetve a high-end audio network lejátszóiknak köszönhetően a termékválasztékuk egyedülállóan sokoldalúvá és sokrétűvé vált a piac többi gyártójához képest. Éppen ez teszi a NAIM termékkínálatát erőssé, mivel minden igényre választ tud adni, ha a legmagasabb hangminőség az elvárás.
Elő- illetve végfokok, integrált erősítők, CD és Network audio lejátszók, kiegészítő tápegységek és kompakt hálózati elektronikák: ezek a termékkategóriák alkotják a NAIM fő portfóliáját.

 

Julian Vereker - Naim Founder

Our Story

Our story begins with one man’s passion for music and weaves its way through four decades and a raft of iconic product launches to the present day.   

Naim Audio founder Julian Vereker MBE (1945-2000) was a racing car driver, entrepreneur and self-taught engineer with a deep passion for music. Spending his spare time listening to and recording his friends playing live in the 1960s, Julian found that playback on his system at home fell woefully short of the experience he craved.

Not content with second best he decided to design his own amplifiers and loudspeakers, ignoring accepted wisdom and focusing on aspects of performance that made music burst to life. These first designs laid the foundations for a range of iconic and award-winning hi-fi products that would reach well into the next century.  

1969 Humble Beginnings

Frustrated with the quality of music reproduction after recording his friends playing live, Naim Audio’s founder, Julian Vereker turned from building his own racing cars to experimenting with amplifiers.

1972 A first start at Capital Radio

Julian won a contract to supply then start-up radio station, Capital Radio, with audio equipment. The successful design was a compact version of an early Naim Audio power amplifier combined with speaker drive units in one cabinet – the NAM 502.

1973 Naim Audio Officially Founded

Following the success of Capital Radio, Naim Audio was officially incorporated in 1973 with Julian Vereker and his co-founder Shirley Clarke as directors. Based in a shop in the centre of Salisbury, our first HQ had both manufacturing and demonstration facilities. 

1973 The NAP 200 Power Amplifier

Naim Audio's first consumer product for home use was launched in the year of our founding: the NAP 200 power amplifier. Originally designed in 1971, its descendant power amplifiers differ greatly technologically but still aim for the same performance goals of pace, rhythm and timing. 

1974 The NAC 12 Preamplifier

With a network of dedicated independent retailers now on board in the UK, the NAC 12, our first production preamplifier, was launched.

As Naim Audio grew in popularity through the 70s and early 80s, the team decided to grab the attention of the press and public with a series of tongue-in-cheek adverts. They reflected the confident, often unorthodox nature of our approach to music playback and have become iconic in their own right. 

1983 NAIT Integrated Amplifier

Naim Audio’s first integrated amplifier the NAIT introduced. This iconic little integrated amp sounded quite unlike any other integrated of its day and set a trend for so-called ‘super integrateds’.

1985 Brompton Connection

Julian joins friend and fellow inventor Andrew Ritchie at his newly founded company. Their product is an innovative bicycle which can be quickly and easily folded up for transportation and storage. He backs the business and becomes a director, helping them to set up production and eventually to become one of the most iconic British brands in the world: Brompton Bicycle.

1985 The Queen's Award

Naim Audio is recognised with the prestigious Queen’s Award for the first time in 1985. We would go on to repeat this achievement a further two times in the 21st century, winning for Export in 2010 and for Innovation in digital music streaming in 2014.  

1991 The CDS CD Player
1991 The CDS CD Player

Like so many Naim Audio products, the design of our first CD player, the CDS, flew in the face of conventional wisdom. Its two box configuration gave the power supply its own separate enclosure and the CD clamp used a rare earth magnet to keep its mass low whilst still firmly holding the disc without vibration.

1993 Naim Records is Born

Created by Naim founder Julian Vereker, Naim Records combined his love for music with his quest to deliver the best sound quality, from the studio to the listening room.

2000 NAP 500 Power Amplifier

The year 2000 marked a step change in Naim Audio history. After several years in development, the new flagship Naim Audio NAP 500 power amplifier was born and with it the new industrial design aesthetic that would redefine Naim Audio for the 21st century. Its music-making ability would only be bettered by the arrival of Statement in 2014. 

Naim for Bentley
2008 Naim for Bentley

Two brands with a distinguished British heritage and a passion for engineering excellence share an 18 month development project to produce the Naim for Bentley in car system. Using sophisticated Naim Audio DSP (Digital Signal Processing) and speaker drive unit technology, the system is available as a custom extra on all Bentley models. 

2009 NaimUniti

An all-in-one player which combines the new world of music streaming with a CD player and integrated amplifier inspired by the original NAIT is launched. The NaimUniti won a coveted What Hi-Fi Product of the Year award in 2009 and in 2012.

2014 Statement

Crafted for pure musical performance, 2014 saw the pinnacle of Naim’s engineering knowledge and artistry in the arrival of Statement.  The ground-breaking series comprises the NAC S1 preamplifier and NAP S1 mono power amplifier.

Conceived over a decade ago, with development from 2011, the objective was to set a new reference standard in high-end audio and music reproduction and aesthetics, a new page in the Naim Audio story.

2014 Mu-so

Naim Audio launches its first complete wireless music system, Mu-so, offering real versatility and performance alongside multiroom capability, a new landmark in high fidelity digital music.  Mu-so is driven by a powerful digital brain and fitted with custom-designed speakers for a musical experience that has to be heard to be believed.

Featuring the same clever digital brain as Mu-so, with 300W of power, Qb has taken the hi-fi world by storm.
