The Story of Naim and Aluminum
Naim’s founder, Julian Vereker, immediately understood the many benefits of aluminum as a material for wrapping Naim electronic components. He knew that delicate audio components were very sensitive to the effects of magnetic fields, unstable temperatures, and unwanted vibrations. While other manufacturers were bending thin sheets of steel, Naim used thick plates of aluminum.
The Naim Classic range maximizes this highly technical and durable approach, with aluminum housings rivaled only by Statement, Naim’s flagship product. The front panels are treated with solid 20mm-thick aluminum billets; heat sinks frame the side panels and 5mm plates cover the top and bottom surfaces. The aluminum is brushed, sandblasted, and anodized to guarantee unalterable beauty throughout the product’s life. The new Classic range can be immediately distinguished with one look and one touch, before the first note of music even plays.
