The manual covers both the NAC S1 preamplifier and NAP S1 power amplifiers. It describes
their use both when connected together using the CAN bus system and when used independently.
CAN bus integrates preamplifier and power amplifier control so that they behave as an
integrated unit.
WELCOME
Your Statement amplifiers will have been initially installed by your Naim retailer who will have
unpacked, positioned, levelled and connected the units appropriately. While this manual covers
positioning, levelling, mains power, input and output connection, setup, operation and care,
it does not include information or guidance on unpacking, packing or shipping. Should you require
in the future to repack or ship your Statement amplifiers without the assistance of a Naim retailer
the necessary information can be found in the Statement Installation Manual. The Installation
Manual is shipped with Statement amplifiers but can also can be found at:
www.naimaudio.com/support.
The manual begins in Section 1 with information on NAC S1 and NAP S1 positioning, levelling and
mains power connection. NAC S1 connections are described in Section 2 and NAP S1 connections
Section 3. The manual continues with setup, operation and care in subsequent sections. Please also
read the Safety Warnings contained within the Installation Manual.
The NAC S1 preamplifier (or CAN bus integrated preamplifier and power amplifier) can be
controlled through either its top panel buttons and volume control or via the supplied Statement
remote handset. Please do not switch-on your Statement preamplifier or power amplifiers until
all connections have been made and until you have read this manual.
Welcome to Statement, and many congratulations on your investment in music. The Statement
NAC S1 preamplifier and Statement NAP S1 mono power amplifiers are an expression of all we
know about audio amplification. Every lesson learned and technology developed over four decades
of Naim amplification has its place in the NAC S1 and NAP S1. They are also however about new
ideas and technologies and without doubt constitute the most technologically advanced analogue
audio amplification the world has ever seen, or heard.
As befits their fundamentally simple purpose, the Statement amplifiers are relatively simple
products to install and to use. They do however require some thought and care on setup, and
getting the absolute best from them will be far more likely if you are familiar with the contents
of this manual.
Statement amplifiers are supplied with an accessory pack containing this manual and the
following items:
• The Statement Story
* The NAC S1 /NAP S1 Installation Manual
• The Statement Remote Control Handset and 4 x AAA batteries (NAC S1 only)
• Floor protectors
(quantity appropriate for preamplifier only or preamplifier and power amplifiers)
• Floor spike adjustment tommy-bar
•Spirit-level
• Remote Control Handset battery cover allen key
• Speaker terminal wrench

I N S TA L L AT I O N
The following Section 1 paragraphs refer to both the NAC S1 preamplifier and NAP S1
power amplifiers.
1.1 P O S I T I O N I N G
W A R N I N G . Statement amplifiers are extremely heavy and to minimise the risk of damage or
personal injury they should be lifted and moved by at least three people working together.
Your Statement preamplifier and power amplifiers can generally be positioned in your listening
room as convenience dictates. There are however some constraints to consider:
•For best performance Statement amplifiers should ideally be connected directly
to wall-mounted mains outlet sockets using only the supplied PowerLine mains cables.
Each Statement unit must therefore be located within 1m of a mains outlet socket.
•If a NAC S1 preamplifier is to be used with a Naim 500 Series or Classic Series power amplifier
(most likely a NAP 500 or NAP 300), the distance between the NAC S1 and the power amplifier
will be constrained by the 1m interconnect cable length.
•If a NAC S1 preamplifier is to be used with NAP S1 power amplifiers, the distance between
the preamplifier and power amplifiers is less constrained by interconnect cable length.
The supplied interconnect cables are 560mm long, however cables of up to 10m length may
be used. Your Naim retailer will be able to supply cables made-up to the required length.
N O T E . One of each pair of NAP S1 power amplifiers is nominated as the “left” power amplifier and
one nominated as the “right” power amplifier. Left (L) and right (R) identification can be found on NAP S1
connection panels. Ensure when positioning a pair of NAP S1 power amplifiers that each one is sited
appropriately for connection to its left and right inputs and outputs.
I M P O R T A N T N O T E . The NAC S1 has setup buttons and indicators located on its connection
panel. Ensure the connection panel is accessible following installation to enable configuration.

1.2LEVELLING
Statement amplifiers are fitted with floor-spikes to define their mechanical interface with the
structure of the listening room and to ensure that their internal isolation systems work optimally.
The floor-spikes should be adjusted so that the amplifiers are perfectly vertical and do not rock.
The Statement spirit level included in the accessory pack is designed to aid levelling adjustment.
N O T E . Statement amplifiers are fitted with floor spike covers when shipped. Remove the covers
simply by pulling them off.
To adjust a floor-spike, first loosen its lock-nut using the supplied tommy-bar. Next turn the floorspike as appropriate using the tommy-bar inserted in the floor-spike through-hole. Re-tighten the
lock-nut when adjustment is complete. Use the minimum length of floor-spike needed to hold the
lock nut just above the carpet.
N O T E . If your Statement amplifiers are to be installed on a non-carpeted floor, the floor spikes should
be used in conjunction with the Naim floor protectors included in the accessory pack and adjusted so
that the tapered part of the floor-spike extends just beyond the lock nut.
1.3
MAINS CONNECTION
Statement amplifiers are supplied with a Naim PowerLine mains cables. The PowerLine is
fundamental to Statement audio performance. Alternative mains cables should not be used.
N O T E . Before connecting your Statement amplifiers to the mains supply check that the mains voltage
specified on the connection panels is appropriate for your territory.
The NAC S1 and NAP S1 should ideally be connected directly to wall mounted mains outlets. If it is
necessary to use a multi-gang mains distribution block it should be of a type specifically designed
for high performance audio applications. Your local Naim retailer will be able to advise on mains
distribution blocks. If the wall mounted mains socket or distribution block incorporates isolation
switches they should remain switched-off until your Statement amplifier installation is complete.

2 .1 NAC S1 AUDIO INPUTS AND CONNECTIONS
The NAC S1 preamplifier provides five stereo analogue audio line inputs intended for the
connection of analogue output source components such as CD players, streamers, audio-visual
processors, DACs, phono preamplifiers or music servers. The inputs are accessed through
connection sockets located on the connection panel. This is illustrated in Diagram 2.2.
2.0
NAC S1 PREAMPLIFIER
The connection sockets comprise three 5-pin DIN sockets, three left/right pairs of RCA phono
sockets, and two left/right pairs of balanced XLR sockets. Each of these eight physical inputs
can be “mapped” to one of the five internal preamplifier inputs.
The default NAC S1 input mapping is tabulated below:
INPUT NAME CD
STREAM
AV
PHONO
AUX
INPUT SOCKET(S)
1 (5-pin DIN)
2 (5-pin DIN)
4 (RCA phono pair)
3 (5-pin DIN)
7 (balanced XLR pair)
Two pairs of RCA phono inputs sockets (inputs 5 and 6) and one pairs of balanced XLR input
sockets (input 8) are by default not mapped to any preamplifier input Modification of the default
input socket mapping is described in Section 4.1.
N O T E . Balanced inputs are different to conventional “single ended” inputs in that the earth and
signal negative conductor are separate. In a conventional “single ended” signal interconnect cable the
earth and negative conductors are common. In a balanced arrangement the negative and earth are
carried on individual conductors. Balanced connection between preamplifier and power amplifiers
significantly reduces the potential for noise and hum – especially over long cable lengths. The diagram
below illustrates balanced and unbalanced interconnects.

Each of the five NAC S1 inputs can be independently adjusted for input gain. Input gain
adjustment enables signal levels from different source components to be compensated so that
switching inputs is less likely to require preamplifier volume adjustment. Adjustment of input
gain is described in Section 4.2.
A signal ground terminal on the NAC S1 connection panel enables the termination of specialist
interconnect cables with auxiliary ground conductors. Contact your Naim retailer for advice on
using such interconnect cables.
Always use interconnect cables intended for high-end audio applications to connect source
equipment to the NAC S1 inputs. Naim interconnect cables will always provide the best results.

NAC S1 AUDIO OUTPUTS AND CONNECTIONS
The NAC S1 preamplifier is fitted with two pairs of analogue stereo audio outputs: one pair of 4-pin
DIN sockets and one pair of balanced XLR sockets. A slide switch on the connection panel enables
the selection of the XLR, DIN or both output sockets.
If the NAC S1 is to be used with a Naim 500 Series or Classic Series power amplifier (most likely
a NAP 500 or NAP 300), the left and right DIN output sockets should be connected to the power
amplifier channel 1 and 2 inputs respectively using Naim 4-pin DIN to XLR interconnect cables.
Your Naim retailer will be able to supply appropriate cables. The output socket switch should be
in the DIN position.
If the NAC S1 is to be used with a pair of NAP S1 power amplifiers, the left and right balanced XLR
output sockets should be connected to the left and right power amplifier inputs using the XLR to
XLR interconnect cables supplied with the power amplifiers. If longer cables are required your
Naim retailer will be able to provide cables of the desired length. The output socket switch should
be in the BAL position.
2.2
NAC S1 CONNECTION PANEL
If the NAC S1 is to be used with both Classic Series power amplification and a pair of NAP S1 power
amplifiers simultaneously, the left and right balanced XLR output sockets should be connected to
the left and right NAP S1 inputs using XLR to XLR interconnect cables. The the left and right DIN
output sockets should be connected to the Classic Series power amplifier channels 1 and 2 inputs
respectively using Naim 4-pin DIN to XLR interconnect cables. The NAC S1 output socket switch
should be in the DIN+BAL position.

Naim speaker cable should be used with NAP S1 power amplifiers. Alternative speaker cables are
technically compatible the NAP S1 however the NAP S1 was specifically designed to be used with
Naim cable and it will provide the best results. Your Naim retailer will be able to make-up speaker
cables terminated with the appropriate hardware and of the required length.
The NAP S1 speaker output terminals can accept Naim Statement speaker connection plugs,
standard 4mm plugs, or spade connectors. If either Statement speaker plugs or standard 4mm
plugs are to be used they can be inserted directly into the socket aperture. If spade connectors
are to be used, the NAP S1 speaker terminals must be loosened, and re-tightened once the spade
connectors are in place. To loosen a NAP S1 speaker terminal, first pull its red or black coloured
cap away from the brass nut beneath, then use the supplied wrench to turn the nut. Replace the
coloured cap when the nut is re-tightened.
W A R N I N G . The NAP S1 can generate output voltages high enough to cause mild electric shock.
Ensure that the NAP S1 is switched off before touching its output terminals.
Ensure when connecting speakers that they are “in phase”; that is, the positive and negative
connection orientation at both the speaker and power amplifier ends of the cable is the same
for both channels.
3.2
2 1
NAP S1 CONNECTION PANEL
N O T E . The NAP S1 speaker terminals are labelled “hot” and “cold”. Hot is equivalent to positive in a
conventional amplifier and cold is equivalent to negative. Hot and cold are used rather than negative and
positive because the NAP S1 is a bridged amplifier design in which both terminals are “active”. In a
conventional amplifier, only the positive terminal is active – the negative terminal is connected to the
system earth.

NAC S1 PREAMPLIFIER SETUP
Following initial switch on, the NAC S1 and NAP S1 will take approximately 20 seconds to complete
their start-up routines. During this time the NAC S1 mute button will be illuminated.
While the default settings mean that your Statement amplifiers can be used immediately,
you may wish to modify some settings to suit your particular needs and preferences. The following
paragraphs describe modification of audio input mapping and adjustment of input gain,
including selection of unity gain mode.
N O T E . Should you decide to leave modifying default settings to another time, Section 5 of this manual
describes Statement amplifier operation.
4 .1 AUDIO INPUT MAPPING
Each of the eight NAC S1 input sockets (3 x 5-pin DIN, 3 x RCA phono pairs, 2 x balanced XLR pairs)
can be mapped to one of the five named NAC S1 inputs: cd, stream, av, phono or aux.
Input mapping can be modified using the down, up and select buttons located on the NAC S1
connection panel.
To modify the input mapping proceed as follows:
•Using the remote handset or the top panel input buttons, select the preamplifier input to be
mapped to an input socket.
•Press and hold the connection panel select button. The indicator adjacent to the currently
mapped input socket will flash.
•Press the connection panel down or up buttons to select each input socket in turn.

AUDIO INPUT GAIN ADJUSTMENT
The input gain for each of the five NAC S1 inputs can be individually adjusted to compensate for
different source output levels. An adjustment range of plus or minus 7dB in 1dB steps is available.
Any of the inputs can also be switched to “unity gain” mode where NAC S1 volume control is
disabled. Unity gain enables the NAC S1 to integrate with audio-visual systems where a multichannel home theatre processor takes over system volume control.
To switch an input to unity gain mode proceed as follows:
W A R N I N G . Unity gain must be used with great care as any signal connected
to a unity gain input will be passed to the power amplifier at maximum output level.
To adjust the input gain proceed as follows:
•Using the remote handset or the top panel input buttons select the preamplifier input to be
switched to unity gain. Ensure that any source connected to the input is switched off.
•Using the remote handset or the top panel input buttons select the preamplifier input to
be adjusted.
•Press and hold both the connection panel down and up buttons until the gain indicator flashes.
If the specific NAC S1 input is in its default state the 0dB indicator will be flashing.
•Press and hold both the connection panel down and up buttons until the gain indicator flashes.
If the specific NAC S1 input is in its default gain state the 0dB indicator will be flashing.

6.0 CARE
3 3
Statement amplifiers are engineered from the finest materials, onto which are applied exquisite
surface finishes. Statement amplifiers also incorporate numerous unique internal components
that are available at any one time only in limited numbers. Furthermore, the complexity of the
Statement build process means that repairing damage to surface finishes or internal components
is an extremely time-consuming and complicated process. It is important therefore that the care
invested when Statement amplifiers are built is reflected in the care invested when they are
installed and used. The following reminders are intended to help ensure that no accidents happen.
• Be mindful at all times that Statement amplifiers are extremely heavy. Do not be tempted to
try and move a Statement amplifier alone. Always ask at least two people to help.
• Metal belt buckles and jewellery can damage Statement surface finishes. Remove or cover
them when handling Statement amplifiers.
•Never place a cup, glass, vase or other liquid filled container on a Statement amplifier.
•
Never place bowls or plates containing food on a Statement amplifier.
•
Never place a lighted candle on a Statement amplifier.
•Take care when using vacuum cleaners around Statement amplifiers. Damage to the plinth
surface finish may occur if knocked by a vacuum cleaner head. Ensure that “robot” vacuum
cleaners are programmed to avoid Statement plinths or the protection is placed around the
plinths when such devices are in use.
•Use only a lint-free cloth, very slightly damp if necessary, to dust Statement external surfaces.
Do not use any wax or solvent based cleaning fluids, sprays or polishes.
•Never attempt to dismantle or modify a Statement amplifier. There are no user-accessible or
serviceable parts inside. If you have concerns over the performance or setup of your Statement
amplifiers contact your local Naim retailer.
