On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, Naim Audio presents NAIT 50, its iconic latest-generation and limited edition amplifier.
1973/2023: Naim celebrates its 50th anniversary! To mark the occasion, the leading English brand in hi-fi electronics unveils NAIT 50, a remaster of the very first NAIT amplifier released in 1983.
Made in Salisbury, UK, this exclusive product is limited to only 1,973 pieces.
AND SOUND EXCELLENCE
The NAIT 50 is born from the legacy of NAIT 1, released in 1983. With technically improved circuits thanks to the enriched, unique know-how gathered over the years by Naim’s engineers, NAIT 50 offers exceptional
amplification performance in its price category. It reproduces the most exacting dynamics with all the confidence and authority we have come to expect from a Naim integrated amplifier. Linking with all types of loudspeaker, it can also be combined with a streamer to make the ultimate hi-fi system. New features on this anniversary edition include a headphone output, making it an ever more versatile and convenient product,
dedicated to sound and to the listener, too.
AND CHROME FINISH
Handcrafted in Naim’s workshops, NAIT 50 boasts uncompromising design quality. Alongside its performance, it also presents a smart, sophisticated aesthetic with its aluminium construction providing the legendary chrome-bumper look. Its front panel combines tradition and modernity, with a nod to the iconic design codes of NAIT 1. NAIT 50 will be available in a limited edition of only 1,973 pieces, in tribute to the 50th anniversary and the year the brand was created by Julian Vereker.

Features & Specifications
•Aesthetically styled on the original NAIT 1, released in 1983.
•Full linear integrated amplifier with 25W class AB power stage.
•High-end manufacturing in the United Kingdom.
•3 input selection buttons. Locking switches control 3 relays for input selection. This input selection has been significantly improved compared to NAIT 1.
•Headphone output jack (6.35mm). This output uses a new preamp/headphone amplifier with a gain of 16dB.
