Audiophiles’ favorite high-resolution streamer
The quality of a hi-fi system depends on its sound source. Compatible with high-resolution file formats used by top streaming services, the NSS 333 is a high-resolution streaming solution that delivers on its promise.
The built-in DAC improves the performance of other digital sources in your system. The New Classic range of separates are as easy to use as a single-box system, thanks to inter-product communications and the Focal & Naim app.
With the NSS 333, you can play the latest streaming platforms (Spotify Connect, Apple Music, TIDAL, and Qobuz), as well as listen to your favorite internet radio stations. Thanks to the integrated AirPlay2, Chromecast, UPnP™, Roon Ready and Bluetooth® AptX technologies, streaming your content from your smartphone or tablet is simple and uncompromising. For a complete home audio experience, the NSS 333 is multi-room compatible with all other Naim streaming 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 our Technical Director, our engineers have developed innovative electronic circuits to give the New Classic products excellent audio performance. The best components have been auditioned for their audio performance, such as custom polystyrene capacitors. The NSS 333 features a high-resolution 40-bit floating point SHARC DSP for incredible digital precision.
A timeless design
Naim products are designed to be both contemporary and timeless. Our creations forgo any unnecessary adornments that would detract from performance and sound quality. The design of the NSS 333 combines a sleek design, premium materials, a 5.5” color screen and adjustable logo brightness.
A comprehensive range of cables are available for full compatibility with our legacy systems and 3rd party products.
Easy to use
Simplicity is the key. Buttons on the front panel allow quick access to standby mode, play/pause, inputs and favorites. Enjoy the features of the bi-directional ZigBee remote, even without direct visibility of the product. The inputs are configurable, allowing custom naming and removal of unused inputs. The NSS 333 automatically detects no music and after 20 minutes will put the system into 0.5W stand-by mode.
The story of Naim and aluminum
Our founder, Julian Vereker, immediately understood the many benefits of aluminum 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.
