Founded in 1973, Naim Audio founder Julian Vereker MBE (1945-2000) was a racing car driver, entrepreneur and self-taught engineer with a deep passion for music. Originally winning a contract to supply Capital Radio in 1972, the original design was an early version of the first Naim Power Amplifier.
Every Naim product is conceived, designed and engineered entirely in service of the sound, revealing a pure experience of music that is as close as possible to its original live source. The range of Naim products start with their all-in-one multi-room speakers, the Mu-so and Mu-so Qb, progressing to their Uniti line, a taste of high-end sound with everything needed in a single box. The SI, XS, Classic, 500 Series and finally Statement ranges, finish off the range as a true premium performance piece of audio design, engineering and sound. Naim marked its 45 years anniversary milestone last year.
