Nait XS and Supernait Upgraded By Naim

The Nait XS3 and Supernait 3 feature performance upgrades and both include built-in MM phono amplifiers based on previous Naim designs

Both units include a range of upgraded components. The second gain stage transistors feature greater power handling, so they no longer need to be protected by a cascode stage transistor. Removing the cascode means less amplifier stabilisation is required: this doubles the slew rate and reduces the group delay.

The phono circuit topology comprises three stages: the gain stage, passive equalisation and final gain and active equalisation. All RIAA equalisation capacitors are ‘through-hole’ mounted film designs.


Input impedance is 47kΩ in parallel with 100pF capacitive loading.
