The world’s first, performance-upgradeable, audiophile hard disk player HDX is first and foremost a music player. Like a conventional music storage device it reads audio data from a CD, copying and storing it to hard disk. That is where the convention ends though.
When a CD is inserted in the HDX disc drawer it is read repeatedly until a bit-perfect CD- quality copy of the audio is obtained. This is then stored onto the HDX’s 2TB hard drive, which provides a capacity for over 2400 uncompressed albums. You can also save your downloads and music ripped prior to owning a Naim server to your HDX to create one easily accessible and editable store for your entire music collection.
The HDX gives you the option to automatically create duplicate versions of your ripped music and saves them to an allocated storage device. This makes the necessary process of backing up your music simple and pain-free. Thanks to an Internet connection, your HDX will automatically catalogue your CDs at artist, album and track level, enabling the simplest search and selection when you come to play your music, which of course is replayed with an utterly uncompromised sound quality.
HDX is IP-enabled and will connect to your home network to form the heart of an IP-enabled multi-room set up, allowing access to your HDX-stored music throughout your home.
The HDX provides access to tens of thousands of internet radio stations via a standard internet connection, allowing you to browse and discover great music, both new and old. Naim’s Choice, a menu highlighting high quality stations chosen for quality of sound and/or programming, provides instant and easy access to the highest quality streams.
HDX can be controlled remotely from the n-Serve app for iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch, which is available as a free download from the app store
HDX is also now available in a Solid State Drive (SSD) variant. HDX-SSD caters for the music lover with an extensive collection and is designed to save all ripped music to Network Attached Storage (NAS) enabling almost infinite storage capability.
Imagine your entire music collection available for immediate replay at the touch of a screen with Naim UK CD players sound quality. You don’t have to imagine anymore; the HDX has arrived.
