Product Award 2019 - Best Music Streamer over £1500
""It may not be much to look at, but the Naim ND5 XS 2 focuses on class-leading sound over aesthetic gimmicks."

Highly Commended

Highly Commended

"The entry-level model in Naim's new network music player range may look simple to the point of anonymity, but its performance could make it the true star of the lineup."

The ND5 XS 2 uses an innovative new streaming platform with an expanded feature set. High-res UPnP streaming, AirPlay, Chromecast built-in, Bluetooth (apt X HD), Spotify Connect, TIDAL, Roon compatibility, internet radio and multiroom streaming alongside digital and USB inputs for conventional connections make this versatile player the ideal Network Music Streamer. 

Carefully selected and matched parts, an oversized toroidal transformer, decoupled PCB boards: the ND5 XS 2 benefits from classic Naim engineering and fastidious attention to detail to ensure that it delivers natural, engaging sound quality from all sources. 

Technology & Craft

Technology & Craft

The streaming section of the ND5 XS 2 uses the latest Naim network card featuring low-noise, high-speed low-voltage differential signalling (LVDS) to route the digital audio signal. The higher speed is capable of decoding all HD audio formats at up to 32 bits/384 kHz or DSD128. Rather than the source acting as the digital timing master, our new streaming board turns things around and allows the DAC clock to control the flow of audio data. The data is integer-over-sampled in a SHARC DSP to an incredible 40-bit accuracy before it’s fed to the PCM1791A Burr-Brown digital-to analogue converter.
