Naim Audio NAC 282

Naim NAC 282

Step up from the NAC 202 and you arrive at the outstanding Naim NAC 282, which includes the NAPSC power supply unit optionally available on its sibling.

The NAPSC independently powers the NAC 282’s digital and control circuits, leaving its audio circuits to either the power supply of a NAC 155 XS or NAP 200 power amplifier, or to one of their standalone FlatCap XS, HiCap or SuperCap power supplies.

The result is even greater transparency and superior musicality plus, of course, all the flexibility you’d expect from one of our preamplifiers.

Features

  • Support for both DIN and RCA inputs to facilitate connection into a wider range of systems
  • Silent microprocessor control that sleeps during listening
  • Precision rotary potentiometers with precious metal wipers
  • AV bypass mode for simple connection to an existing AV system
  • Powered input for use with StageLine or SuperLine phono stages

Performance upgradable with FlatCap XS, HiCap or SuperCap power supply; can also be powered from the preamp inputs of the NAP 155 XS or NAP 200 power amplifier

Technology & Craft

Low resonance circuit boards and anti-vibration, resonance control feet maximise isolation, hence minimizing the effects of microphonic vibration on the highly sensitive electronic components.

The NAC 282 features a silent microprocessor that sleeps during listening and controls all aspects of the amplifier.

Optical protection circuits continuously monitor the power supplies ensuring safe shut-down in the event of a power cut.

A user configurable ‘Smart IR’ system remote control is supplied.

Two of the six inputs on the Naim Audio NAC 282 can be configured either as the usual DIN inputs, preferred for their superior earthing and impedance matching, or for use with the more common RCA phono connectors, allowing a wide range of non-Naim Audio cables and components to be used.

A dedicated unity-gain input is provided for use with the Naim Audio AV2 processor or similar.

Naim Audio

Naim Audio

Their 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.

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’s 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.

1980 Classic Advertising

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 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

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

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.
