Experience the New Ovator S-600 loudspeaker and the New Naim DAC at Naim’s Summer Sounds Roadshow
June 1st 2009 Naim today announced the dates for their Summer Sounds roadshow.
Planned to take place in 33 Naim retailers in the UK, the Summer Sounds events will feature demonstrations of the new Naim Ovator S-600 loudspeaker that launched, and received so much interest, at the recent Munich High-End Show.
Naim will also be demonstrating the new Naim DAC that will launch in September.
Naim personnel from sales, marketing and R&D as well as participating retailer staff will be on hand to answer questions and play some excellent music. Also expect a glass of wine or two and maybe some cheesy nibbles.
For many this will be the first opportunity to listen to the S-600 the world’s first high-end loudspeaker to use Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) technology and to learn about the innovations in the new Naim DAC.

The use of a technology like BMR until now has only been seen in low-end AV speakers, even though technically it delivers two huge advantages. There is no crossover point right in the middle of the frequencies where the ear is most sensitive – the voice band .The Naim BMR covers six octaves from the mid bass to beyond the hearing of even a young child. The directivity, or dispersion as it is perhaps better known, is far more even with frequency, thus ‘driving’ a room more naturally and giving a far wider ‘sweet-spot’. Conventional loudspeaker designs deliver a very unnatural power response in comparison to live voices or instruments.
Development of a Naim BMR drive unit to deliver this level of performance is not a trivial undertaking as perhaps the three years of development time indicates. The combination of mathematical analysis, computer simulations and empirical analysis, combined with countless iterations of the drive unit with minute changes are hugely resource consuming as well as requiring a massive investment in personnel and advance measurement and modelling equipment.
