NAP 100 front Nap 100 Rear


The NAP 100 is a classic expression of traditional Naim power amplifier engineering. While its dimensions are conveniently compact – just a mere 20cm wide – its performance is seriously dynamic and expansive. The NAP 100 is perfect for a number of applications, adding a dose of Naim musicality to a wide variety of systems. Paired with our DAC-V1 digital-to-analogue converter, it becomes the power behind a high-end system to unleash the music from your PC or Mac. Add a UnitiServe to the equation and you create a full hi-fi system that divorces your listening experience from the desktop and allows you complete control from our n-Serve iOS app.

50W per channel output into 8 ohms
Dual mono power amplifier design
Audiophile grade hand-selected components
Linear power supply with a large toroidal transformer
Pair with the DAC-V1 and UnitiServe for compact, high-end music system

We’ve tested the Naim NAP 100 a couple of times, partnering the company –  DAC-V1 DAC/preamp, but we’ve never quite got round to giving this neat little power amplifier its own review. That’s an oversight we’re happy to put right: drawing on the company’s classic discrete transistor amplifier design, derived in this case from the Naim SuperUniti all-in-one system, and with a dual mono layout in compact ‘shoe box’ casework, the NAP 100 has an appeal far beyond simply using it with the DAC-V1 as part of a desktop audio system. Read more
