Naim power amplifiers are designed to drive real loudspeaker loads and can easily deal with any impedance from zero Ohms to infinity without damage or signs of instability. All their power amplifiers feature heavyweight power supplies and can swing huge amounts of current so they are never caught out by dynamic transients.
During the years of research that went into the NAP 500 amplifier, many technical developments were made that could be successfully applied to the existing products. Many of these developments, along with the elegant new styling have been incorporated, resulting in the ‘Classic’ line-up, including that of the NAP 200.
Like the flagship NAP 500, the NAP 200 uses a new circuit design with improved earthing arrangements built on a very high quality, anti-resonance main audio circuit board.
Anti-vibration, resonance-controlling feet serve to protect the sensitive internal components from resonance and microphonic vibration.
A new, top-quality 430VA toroidal transformer provides more than 300VA of transient power. Separate windings provide dedicated left and right channel rectified power supplies with two smoothing capacitors per channel. The NAP 200 also has a separate winding providing a preamplifier power supply. This enables the NAP 200 to be used in a two-box amplifier configuration with a Naim preamplifier such as the NAC 202.
The Naim NAP 200 is stable into any load and can drive a 2-ohm load for long periods of time.
