What is Naim XS or XS-2

Good morning ,
This is my first post I am writing to you through the translator forgive me.
I have equipment that I bought in Poland as XS-2, this symbol is on the carton and the serial number matches it, while on the back panel there is the inscription XS. I am enclosing photos, I wrote to Niam, but I have not received any answer yet, so I am asking you for some answer if someone had such a case. Is this a normal situation? They say in the store that I have the XS-2, but I don’t want to believe something.

That serial number is a 2012 unit. The original Nait XS had a midcycle refresh where the front fascia was changed to match the style of the Classic range, whereas before it looked like the 5 series. Those were labeled XS-2, but they are not what Naim eventually called the second version of the XS as XS 2.

As such, you likely have an XS-2, might just not be what you thought.

The XS-2 was the slightly revised XS.
The XS2 was the replacement with more upgrades and redesign.

That is correct. The xs -2 is an xs in a different case.

The xs2 is the later model with internal changes.

You have to admit, it’s a little tricky.
I want to sell my Naim and I don’t know which version to advertise

You should advertise it as an xs-2, not as an xs2.

I did that too, but the customer who bought it complained to me that he meant xs2 and he got xs

You could always add to the ad the info from the posts above to make it clear


I had the nait xs-2 as well and the name is usally confusing, both for buyers and sellers. Needs a proper explanation.

I agree that it’s confusing, so the more info the better :slight_smile:
