  • Integrated Amplifier now with MM-phonostage.
  • 70W per channel into 8 ohms (4mm sockets), 100W per channel into 4 ohms
  • On demo in our store


Vinyl is Back! The latest update of the XS 2 gave us the XS3 with to our great joy a MM phono-stage!

The second gain stage transistors have been optimised, so they no longer need to be shielded by a cascode stage transistor. Removing the cascode means less amplifier stabilisation is required: that doubles the slew rate and delivers another uplift in sound quality.

The NAIT XS 3 offers much of the performance of our reference quality SUPERNAIT 3 in a simpler, slimmer package combining a 70W power amplifier with five analogue inputs plus a PHONO STAGE!.

Its high-performance preamplifier stage is as transparent as you would expect from a Naim Audio amplifier, and it also shares the single-ended class-A headphone output of its larger sibling.

The NAIT XS 3 can be upgraded with our external power supplies, and power amplifiers to become the musical heart of a modern music system to get the best from digital, CD, vinyl and AV sources.

  • 70W per channel power output
  • MM -Phonostage
  • Inputs with support for both DIN and RCA connections
  • 1/4” (6.35mm) headphone output and high quality class-A headphone amplifier
  • Ceramic heat sink isolation for improved sound quality on power and preamp section
  • AV bypass mode for simple connection to an existing AV system
  • Pre-amp (DIN), Subwoofers (RCA pair) connections 775mV, <50 ohms
Technology & Craft

In the six years since the last NAIT integrated amplifiers were released, our research and development team have worked on a range of amplifier improvements.

The result is upgraded power amplifier sections for NAIT XS 3, delivering greater pace and intimacy to their musical delivery – whether it’s driving a pair of loudspeakers or your favourite pair of headphones.

The NAIT XS 3 has received significant performance upgrades, including a built-in phono stage, making it a perfect partner for turntables, as well as for streamers, CD players, or any other music source people want to enjoy with the signature Naim sound.
