The NAIT XS 3 offers much of the performance of our reference quality SUPERNAIT 2 in a simpler, slimmer package combining a 70W power amplifier with six analogue inputs. Its high performance preamplifier stage is as transparent as you would expect from a Naim Audio amplifier, and it also shares the single-ended class-A headphone output of its larger sibling.
The NAIT XS 3 can be upgraded with our external power supplies, power amplifiers and even phono stages to become the musical heart of a modern music system to get the best from digital, CD, vinyl and AV sources.
- 70W per channel power output
- Six inputs with support for both DIN and RCA connections
- 1/4” (6.35mm) headphone output and high quality class-A headphone amplifier
- Ceramic heat sink isolation for improved sound quality on power and preamp section
- AV bypass mode for simple connection to an existing AV system
- Preamplifier, power amplifier and subwoofer connections
- Built-in moving magnet (MM) phono stage
Technology & Craft
At 70 Watts per channel, the NAIT XS 3 is more powerful than its NAIT XS predecessor. It also features numerous refinements to enhance its music making still further: ceramic heatsink technology, constant current source drive electronics, a reconfigured internal layout to optimize signal paths and custom manufactured film style capacitors in all audio critical locations.
Constructed in a slimline aluminum enclosure, the NAIT XS 3 provides six analogue inputs and the same innovative Class A headphone amplifier as the SUPERNAIT 3. With any amplifier, however, the proof of its technology is in the listening. The NAIT XS 3 is both powerful and delicate, dynamic and even-handed. It does everything the music asks and delivers everything that a Naim Audio amplifier should.
