Supernait 3 on way?

    Any Naim experts know?.....there are loads of ex-demo SN2’s suddenly for sale. Usually a sign. I ask as I was thinking of buying but would probably hang off if a SN3 is in the offing...

    I doubt it. The only "Naim Experts" who might know this are Naim themselves and they aren't going to spill the beans on a forum like this first.

    Buy the ex dem SN2, it’ll sound just as shite as a 1 or 3.

    No SN3 gossip in the Naim Forum, but an XS3 thread has been recently deleted by the moderator... So something is going on...

    i bought my Naim SN2 ex demo from Germany ( i live in India ) last year on a business visit..

    well... business + SN2 visit :)

    i like the SN2 lots - does things very nicely for me.

    SN2 not the only item on sale

    I've seen Nova's and Atom too
    Lots of old mk 1 Muso and Qb

    Capital investors need profit before holidays in Salisbury
    Maybe they are putting the business up for sale ?

    Guess they have a vast number of new products on the test
    I'm not that exited after latest Muso 2 and silly priced Lumina were launched
    Fwiw my olive pre/power knocked a SN2 into ..

    Was not impressed with Statement/Focal at Munich show

    The golden days are over

    Lots of XS2’s up for sale too......summinks up! Lol

    As for the golden days are over, definitely. Their website had a tortuous countdown for an exciting new Naim product that had all forum members champing at the bit only to find it was a new Muso! An all in one assembled in China, talk about over-hype!

    Does it matter if a SN3 comes out?

    I was thinking something was up too as my Naim dealer has removed the supernait 2 from its product listing as well as having their demo one for sale.

    It sounds to me that they were not happy with the new product for the great Munich launch, and pulled it from the release.

    Possibly another rationalisation in the portfolio: only one integrated classic amp remaining.

    They do probably have a new version of 272 streamer/pre out soon
    A Qb II too

    Guess a new entrylevel integrated amp made in Asia
    Perhaps Atom looks

    XS & SN range soon to be discontinued
    A Statement integrated will come

    Their product range seem quite confusing tbh

    There was a time back in the day when Naim products had long runs, years actually. Got to cheapen the brand surely.

    Of all that naits I never noticed much difference of all the 5’s to be honest, model changes are usually as a result of parts used no longer available and a price increase and to keep current.

    HiFiman Don't tell him Pike

    Discounting the 5 range from your list looks like every 5 to 6 years so I guess a SN3 is imminent

    Considered buying a Supernait about a decade ago and went for a demo at Graham's Hi Fi in London. It was good, but I went for a secondhand EAR V2 integrated valve amp and the DAC I already had.

    It will be interesting to see and hear what a Supernait 3 if like, if one comes out.
