The Fraim equipment support system has been carefully designed to provide the perfect platform for Naim electronics to shine. Each level is carefully isolated from the next using a cup-and-cone interface. An additional, double-layer base platform provides further isolation from resonance. A toughened glass sub-shelf rests on minimal-contact ball decouplers, providing even more isolation. From the stainless steel spikes, which complete the process of isolation, to the zinc-plated steel nuts and studs that tie everything together, each individual component of the Fraim has been selected for its effect on sound quality. You’d expect nothing less from us.

Technology & Craft
Our development of the Fraim marked the first time the full engineering resources of a high-end audio manufacturer had been deployed in the design of an equipment stand. The Fraim brings more detail, pace and focus to music, working in harmony with the Naim philosophy that makes the fundamentals of music – pitch, timing and dynamics – the priorities.
The Fraim principle is that successive minimal contact interfaces progressively decouple the transmission of mechanical energy. This includes the micro-vibrations created when products are immersed in a sound field and those generated by all products while operating, including power supplies. At the same time the interfaces provide a fixed reference plane on which the internal isolation systems of each item of electronics can perform optimally. Additionally, the shelf height options are configured to ensure that magnetic field interaction between electronic products is minimised.
Fraim material selection is as significant as the arrangement of its components. Super hard stainless steel, toughened glass selected following intensive listening tests, large section anodised aluminium extrusion and veneered wood composites all contribute to equipment support that both performs to perfection and perfectly complements the Naim aesthetic.
Audiophiles all over the world will recognise the British audio brand Naim which has been leading the way with their world-beating all-in-one Hi-Fi systems, reference equipment and in recent years streaming audio. Naim is all about the music and their systems are designed to help you forget that you’re listening to Hi-Fi and create a fully immersive audio experience. Whether a £650 wireless all-in-one music system or a £167,700 amplifier!
As you’d expect from such a prestigious brand, Naim products are built to last and will provide a sound investment for many years of joyful listening. Add to this their unbelievable support and servicing – even for original products going back 40 years – and you’ve got a recipe for a long lasting friendship and audio discovery.
At Oxford Audio we have a large range of Naim products on demonstration so if you want to get an idea of just how good they sound or find out more about how they work come along for a listen and a chat. Feel the emotion of the music and take a step towards better quality audio with Naim’s range of audio products.
