Naim NSC 333
Audiophiles’ favourite high-resolution streamer
The quality of a hi-fi system depends on its sound source.
Compatible with file formats used by top streaming devices and services, Naim NSS 333 is a high-resolution streaming solution that delivers on its promise.
The built-in DAC converter improves the performance of other devices in your system.
Compatible with the entire Naim range, Naim NSS 333 allows you to control your system easily from the Focal & Naim app.
With Naim NSS 333, you can find the most recent streaming platforms (Spotify connect, Apple Music, TIDAL, TIDAL Connect and Qobuz) and listen to your favourite radio stations.
Thanks to the integrated AirPlay2, Chromecast, UPnP™, Roon Ready and Bluetooth® AptX technologies, streaming your content from your smartphone or tablet is easy and high quality.
For total listening pleasure at home, this streamer is multi-room compatible with many connected Naim products.
The intuitive Focal & Naim app allows you to control your NSS 333 easily.
You can access all your music, including your favourite radio stations, playlists and streaming services or explore artist biographies and discographies.
Moreover, you can update your system wirelessly.
It also allows you to control both servers and Naim streaming products, eliminating the need to manage two separate apps.
Under the leadership of their Technical Director, their engineers have developed specific electronic circuits to give the New Classic products superior performance.
The best components have been chosen, such as the NP800 streaming card, an exclusive DSP with integrated crossover for a high precision result and a high-end DAC distinguished by its audiophile management of the audio signal.
A timeless design
Naim products are designed to be both contemporary and timeless.
Their creations forgo any unnecessary adornments that would detract from performance and sound quality.
The design of the Naim NSS 333 is razor sharp, combining a sleek design, premium materials, a colour screen and adjustable logo brightness.
Integration into a complete system
Naim NSS 333 can be linked with New Classic products, but also with previous Classic Series lines via a new range of specific cables.
Easy to use
Simplicity is the key.
Buttons on the front panel allow quick access to standby mode, play/pause, inputs and favourites.
Enjoy the features of the bi-directional ZigBee remote, even without direct visibility of the product.
The inputs are configurable and a “Standby” option, consuming 0.5 Watts, reduces the electrical energy of the product.
The story of Naim and aluminium
Naim’s founder, Julian Vereker, immediately understood the many benefits of aluminium for wrapping Naim electronic components.
He knew that delicate audio components are very sensitive to the effects of magnetic fields, thermal instability, unwanted vibrations, etc.
