Naim OVATOR S-800

The S-800 is our flagship loudspeaker. Its huge 1.4m tall, 93.5kg enclosure houses twin 28cm flat-panel bass units to ensure extraordinary bass response


It isn’t just bass you hear: it’s sound you experience. Scale isn’t the only thing that matters, though, and with the Ovator S-800, accuracy is just as important. The linear, perfectly precise 82mm BMR drive unit is treated with all the reverence that its unique engineering demands: housed in its own aluminium alloy cylinder within the S-800 cabinet and isolated from undesirable resonances transmitted through the enclosure by two four-element leaf springs, it has all it needs to shine.

  • OTHER INFORMATIONS

    Drawing on over five years of research, the Ovator S-800 represents a significant step forward in Naim’s balanced mode radiator (BMR) design pioneered by the S-400 and S-600. The Ovator S-800's refined BMR constitutes its most visible technological advance, yet the performance of this loudspeaker is equally the result of painstaking refinement in numerous elements of design, construction, and material selection. The loudspeaker uses two new finely tuned, custom-designed flat-panel bass drivers to handle the lowest frequencies.
