Focal Naim 10th Anniversary Limited Edition

To mark the 10th anniversary of their merger, Focal and Naim have launched the Focal Naim 10th Anniversary Edition system.

Popular for its compact yet high-performance design, the Sopra N°2 loudspeaker was chosen to don a unique finish, with concrete on the side panels and “tin” colour on the front, inspired by the finest architecture.

These sculpted finishes, giving a metallic effect previously unseen in the audio sector, embody all the artisanal and industrial know-how Focal has accumulated over more than 40 years.

A COMPLETE, CUTTING-EDGE AUDIO SOLUTION

These finishes, with a metallic effect previously unseen in the audio sector, encapsulate more than 40 years of Focal’s know-how and innovation.

An acclaimed array of Naim Classic electronics powers the Focal loudspeakers: the cutting-edge NDX 2 music-streaming player pairs with the NAC 282 / NAP 250 DR pre-power amplifiers, complete with matching NAPSC and HiCap DR power supplies. The system includes all the connections you need, including a pair of Naim’s top-range Super Lumina speaker cables.

Focal Sopra N°2

Sopra N°2 clearly paved the way to another era for the “Premium High End” bringing new performance criteria. Compact, modern, a pure design, character… all these are essential factors to ensure perfect integration into your interior.

Equipped with best midrange drivers ever developed by Focal, with the NIC (Neutral Inductance Circuit) and TMD (Tuned Mass Damper) technologies, Sopra N°2 pushes back the limits of sound reproduction in terms of transparency in a very compact enclosure.

Sopra N°2 is perfectly at ease in rooms measuring up to 320ft2 (30m2), and is even ideal for larger rooms measuring up to 750ft2 (70m2).

Stereo Preamplifier

NAC 282

The NAPSC independently powers the NAC 282’s digital and control circuits, leaving its audio circuits to the HiCap DR power supply. The result is even greater transparency and superior musicality plus, of course, all the flexibility you’d expect from a Naim preamplifier

Two of the six inputs on the Naim Audio NAC 282 can be configured either as the usual DIN inputs, preferred for their superior earthing and impedance matching, or for use with the more common RCA phono connectors allowing a wide range of non-Naim Audio cables and components to be used.

  • Support for both DIN and RCA inputs to facilitate connection into a wider range of systems
  • Silent microprocessor control that sleeps during listening
  • Precision rotary potentiometers with precious metal wipers
  • AV bypass mode for simple connection to an existing AV system
  • Powered input for use with StageLine or SuperLine phono stages

Power Supply

HiCap DR

It may be small, but the HiCap’s talent for maximizing your system’s musicality should not be underestimated. A matched power supply for the NAP 250 DR, with its large toroidal transformer and high-quality capacitors, ensures excellent performance and value.

  • Two dedicated 24V power outputs
  • All-new Discrete Regulator, delivering stable, low-noise power

Power Amplifier

NAP 250 DR

Few components in the history of hi-fi can match the pedigree of the mighty NAP 250. The NAP 250 DR now features the same transistors and Discrete Regulator technology used in Statement. Producing even more of the musical pace, rhythm and timing that made the originals so popular.

  • 80W per channel output into 8 ohms
  • Large custom-designed transformer providing 400VA of transient power
  • Advanced 009 output transistors, as used in our reference NAP 500 and Statement power amplifier
  • Less noise, and faster reactions to the requirements of the music – that’s the idea behind the Discrete Regulator technology.
  • New circuit design with improved earthing arrangements, built on a very high quality, anti-resonance main audio circuit board.
  • New top-quality transformer is used providing the ability to deliver more than 15 Amps and swing a massive 400VA on transients.
