You’ve probably noticed; audio has exploded. Along with listening to CDs and radio, we can now download audio, stream audio across networks, broadcast audio across WiFi, store audio on memory sticks and, with iPods, drop audio into our pockets. And if that wasn’t enough, vinyl is definitely back on the menu.
So imagine everything audio in one place: integrated amplifier, CD player, DAB/FM tuner, internet radio, iPod dock, digital-to-analogue converter, music file player and network stream player. And now combine all that with legendary Naim musical quality, engineering integrity, design sophistication and interface know-how. Congratulations! You’ve just come up with the NaimUniti.
The NaimUniti is our first ever all-in-one audio player. It combines a ten-input, 50-Watt-perchannel integrated amplifier based on the award-winning NAIT 5i, a CD player based on the similarly acclaimed CD5i, and a digital-to-analogue converter with an output filter derived from that developed for the stunning CD5x. To all that, NaimUniti adds a high quality DAB/FM tuner, the ability to play streamed audio files wirelessly from UPnP™ servers or internet radio stations, and separate interface inputs for USB memory sticks carrying audio files, iPods and mp3 players. NaimUniti has every base covered; you just need a pair of speakers.
NaimUniti has an analogue heart. Its NAIT 5i-derived integrated amplifier beats true to our long established design philosophies and is the foundation of the NaimUniti’s audio quality. But in parallel with audio quality, it is NaimUniti’s immense digital versatility that sets it apart from any other all-in-one audio product. Its comprehensive coverage of audio bases includes audio formats as well as audio sources. So along with Red Book CD audio, FM and DAB radio, and iRadio streams at multiple bit rates, NaimUniti can play audio files in MP3, Windows Media–formatted content, AAC, Apple Lossless (from your iPod), FLAC and WAV formats. And thanks to NaimUniti’s internal DAC, external digital audio sources, such as satellite TVs or games consoles, are a breeze too. NaimUniti is the perfect audio hub.
Versatility is however little use without accessibility. NaimUniti’s coherent and intuitive user interface makes using and navigating around each of its audio sources child’s play. NaimUniti finds DAB or iRadio stations without prompting; it connects to networks and discovers UPnP™ server shared audio files automatically, and it presents everything via a large front panel display that’s the model of clarity. Every CD track, audio file, stream or source is literally just a couple of button presses away. NaimUniti also works seamlessly with iPod devices. Simply connect an iPod to the interface socket, using Naim’s specially-designed iPod cable: the n-Link, and NaimUniti both takes over iPod control and displays iPod contents. It charges the iPod battery too.
There’s never been a more exciting time to be an audio enthusiast and NaimUniti is an audio product whose time has come. NaimUniti: All in one, for one and all.
