Based on the acclaimed design of the Nagra CLASSIC AMP, the Nagra CLASSIC INT is a powerful integrated amplifier capable of driving the great majority of speakers whilst delivering exceptional musicality.
A perfect companion to the CLASSIC AMP and the CLASSIC DAC, the tube Nagra CLASSIC PREAMP builds on the legacy of the Nagra Jazz and updates it to the design philosophy of the CLASSIC range for enhanced performance.
The Nagra HD AMP was designed for ultimate high-end systems that are able to reproduce the music realistically. The HD AMP are mono amplifiers, they can drive the most demanding speakers and transcend their performance.
The Nagra MEZZO offers PCM linear recording 24 bit up to 96 kHz or compressed MP-3 recording in the palm of your hand. Built-in 8GB flash memory. Easy to use, one-handed operation, ideal for on-the-go recording. Can be mounted on a DSLR with a standard adapter.
The NAGRA VI is an 8-channel recorder for Music and Film/TV production work. It has outstanding audio performance, is easy to operate and has impressive features list, Full SMPTE/EBU time code and iXML metadata.
..In two decades of covering the CES, I have never heard a system where the speakers weren’t there.
For achieving a taste of the virtual music Nagra/Wilson system wins a Jimmy Award for the Once and Future Representation of Recorded Music.

Finally, we come to the biggest sonic surprise of the show, at least for me. But first, here’s the list of suspects: Nagra HDdac ($30,000), Classic preamp ($17,000), HD mono amplifiers ($82,500/pair, 2000 watts from only six MOSFETs), VPS phono stage ($7650), CD transport ($14,775), and Seven recorder ($4800); Kronos Pro turntable ($38,000) and Kronos Black Beauty tonearm ($8,500); Wilson Alexx speakers ($109,000/pair); Transparent Audio XL interconnects ($6400/pair), and Opus speaker cables ($39,000/pair); HRS SXR-1921-3V audio stand frame ($5195), M3X-1921 ($2895) and M3X-1923 ($3695 each) isolation bases.
Over the years Nagra setups have left my forehead cool to the touch, as if the blood had drained away looking for a warm place to hide. Yet recently, something has happened at Nagra. For the first time, their equipment revealed the tiny inflections, the filigrees and fractals -- the texture -- that gives reproduced sound a hint of reality. The difference between the dCS/Wilson/D’Agostino room and the Nagra/Wilson demonstration was the silence of the loudspeakers on Nagra electronics. It was as if the Alexx towers were on silent display and the music just arose at the front of the room. In two decades of covering the CES, I have never heard a system where the speakers weren’t there. Though Nagra’s technology is now available for a king’s ransom, one hopes it will eventually trickle down. For achieving a taste of the virtual music (perhaps soon to be accessible to audiophiles everywhere), the Nagra/Wilson system wins a Jimmy Award for the Once and Future Representation of Recorded Music.
