Naim Audio NDX 2

Categories: , , ,


  • High End Streamer
  • Now also with Native support for Qobuz!
  • Upgradable with an external XPS DR, XP5 XS or 555 PS DR power supply.


With its world-class performance, the versatile and upgradable NDX 2 embodies the current state of the art. A host of features such as high-res UPnPTM streaming, AirPlay, AirPlay 2, Chromecast built-in, Bluetooth (aptX HD), Spotify Connect, TIDAL, Qobuz, Roon compatibility, vTuner internet radio and multiroom streaming as well as digital and USB inputs provide all the connectivity you could wish for.

Our main focus in developing the NDX 2 network player, however, was its performance. Along with Naim’s bespoke streaming platform, we implemented an upgraded DAC and discrete analogue stages. These and numerous other improvements over its acclaimed predecessor make the NDX 2 a sonic force to be reckoned with, offering highly immersive and lively replay quality.

Power Supply Upgrades

The NDX network player can be used in conjunction with t an external XP5 XS, XPS DR or 555 PS DR power supply, giving you a marked increase in sonic authority and emotion. However, only Classic Series XPS units are compatible with the NDX, not the older Olive Series versions. Olive Series XPS power supplies should never be paired with an NDX network player as this has the potential to cause the Olive XPS to overheat, damaging the product*.
