Naim 555 PS (500 Series Finish)
The ultimate upgrade.
Not everyone sees hi-fi as Naim Audio do. For them, a smooth, stable, low-noise power supply isn’t just desirable: it’s fundamental to proper hi-fi performance. Nowhere is that belief more clearly exemplified than in our reference 555 PS DR, the best power supply in their portfolio.
Originally designed to partner Naim’s world-class CD555 CD player, the 555 PS can also be used with Naim’s NDS and NDX network players, our HDX hard disk player/ server and our DAC digital to analogue converter as well as the CDx2 CD player. Whatever Naim Audio product it partners, the 555 PS DR will improve every aspect of your favourite music. Voices and instruments become clearer and more natural. Perceived dynamic range increases too, while timing – music’s fundamental sense of rhythm and accuracy – snaps into even greater focus.

Technology & Craft
The 555 PS benefits from both Naim’s decades of experience and their relentless pursuit of superior sound quality. Its massive transformer, some 40 percent larger than that fitted to their XPS power supply, features five separate windings outputting to seven regulated supply voltages, including an output specifically intended for use with the clock circuitry of their CD555.
The 555 PS was updated in 2012 as a result of a two year project to develop a new discrete regulator (DR) for Naim Audio power supplies. The new Naim Audio DR now features, alongside improvements to the wire routing, mechanical decoupling and internal layout. These enhancements, developed through intensive listening tests, significantly raise performance and make music even more communicative and enjoyable.
