Naim DAC-V1 DAC / pre-amp
Fantastic, highly reviewed 'half box' digital pre-amp + power amp combo!

Thirty years ago, I bought an amplifier that changed the way I thought about music and ultimately changed my life. It was a twin 'half box' design called the Naim NAC 42 / NAP 110 and it is arguably the reason I now own a Hi-Fi business. It turned me from someone who was casually interested in music into an addict !

Now Naim have launched the 42 / 110's spiritual successor for the modern age, the DAC-V1 / NAP 100. The DAC-V1 is a 'half box' digital pre-amp, featuring an on-board audiophile DAC, with 5 digital inputs, plus a high speed asynchronous USB input, a precision volume control and a high quality headphone amplifier. It will handle up to 24bit / 384kHz resolution, to produce stunning sound quality from your CD player, computer, games console, TV, satellite box, or any other device with a digital output. Plug in your PC via USB and you will be amazed!

Arguably, the only thing this amplifier lacks is a streaming capability, but that is easily rectified by simply adding on the excellent little 30 ChromeCast Audio, which will allow you to 'dip your toe' into the streaming world of Spotify / Tidal / internet radio etc, without having to go to the huge expense of buying an add on streamer. ChromeCast Audio sounds plenty good enough to get you started with streaming and if you like what you hear you can always get a higher quality dedicated streamer later.

The NAP 100 is the perfect power amplifer for the DAC-V1, producing the detailed, punchy, musical delivery that has made Naim so famous. Its design is based on the circuit topology found in the 3000+ Naim SuperUniti, featuring a massive power supply and dual mono, 75 watt (into 4 ohm) amp boards. Combine the DAC-V1 with the NAP 100 and you have a thoroughly modern, super compact system, bursting with Naim clarity and rhythm.

From time to time we get mint, 'ex demo' Naim DAC-V1, at a significant saving off SRP - click here for details
