I know this is an odd question but does anyone happen to know any details of the frequency response of a Naim Nait 3, particularly of the high frequency roll off in the ultrasonic range? Someone's asked me about using one at 50kHz...

Cheers,

Martin

Some help with this can be found in one of the recent hifi world articles. Naim use frequency limiting in their amps, only amplifying a specific frequency range (not sure if they use it in all their amps, or what the roll off is ,but i would guess there would not be a lot left at 50khz). Cant remember all the details and im sure ive read something about it somewhere before.

Cheers. That was kind of what I thought but wasn't certain.

Might be one for the Naim forum Martin, Ive checked the Nait 3 Manual but it doesnt list the freq response...Hawk
Thanks for looking Hawk. I think I'll give Naim a ring tomorrow and see if they'll help me out.

Does it matter as long as it sounds good

Not for HiFi no, but I'm asking in relation to an experiment a biologist is doing and has asked for my help with

. I'd better not say what it is though as it's not my research.

Cheers for the numbers Tone.

I am saying too many people get too concearned about figures on paper rather than how something sounds, whatever the piece of kit.

Nige,

I'll be diplomatic too, I have a modded nait 2, great little amp.

The Nait 3 is quite possibly the worst amp I've ever had the mis fortune to listen too seriously
