Naim Audio has launched a third generation of its award-winning Nait XS and Supernait integrated amplifiers. The pair enjoy significant performance upgrades, says the company, including built-in phono stages, making them compatible with turntables, as well as for media streamers and CD players.

The second gain stage transistors have also been improved for greater power handling, so they no longer need to be protected by a cascode stage transistor. Removing the cascode means less amplifier stabilisation is required, leading to an improvement in sound quality. They also sport upgraded power amplifier sections.

“These are the best-sounding integrated amplifiers Naim has produced, now with added love for vinyl. Major performance upgrades mean you’ll hear more from your music, whatever format you’re listening to”, enthuses Naim Audio MD, Charlie Henderson.

Both integrated amplifiers are designed and manufactured in Salisbury, UK. It’s been six years since the previous Nait integrated amplifiers were released.

The Nait XS3 and Supernait 3 launch at the end of July, priced at £2199 and £3499 respectively.
