AV Forums reviews Naim's new Uniti Atom Compact High-End All-in-One Player

https://www.avforums.com/review/naim-un ... view.13799

'It is a testimony to how impressive the Naim is that even after a year of waiting, this is still a product that feels like it has moved the game on. This is the smallest and most affordable of the Uniti products – one that costs significantly less than some of the models we have looked at – but it still manages to compete on pretty much even terms. The addition of Chromecast support and the HDMI input are not, on their own, revolutionary but they help to create a product that is a superbly judged balance of flexibility and sheer performance. It’s been a long time coming but the Uniti Atom is here now and it is unquestionably a Best Buy."

Naim's new Uniti Atom Compact High-End All-in-One Player is at Musicraft (Derby)

Uniti Atom is a beautiful, compact multi-source music player that will seduce you with its amazing sound quality and outstanding feature-set. Its 40-watt integrated amplifier and high-resolution music streaming capabilities will fill your home with stunning high-fidelity sound. Atom is perfect as a high-end main system or even for use in the kitchen or study, where space is at a premium. Just add speakers. Our Naim App for iOS and Android combines all of your music sources in one place, making Uniti Atom even more appealing.

What Hi-Fi reviews Naim's new Uniti Atom Compact High-End All-in-One Player

"Rarely does a product look and sound as good as the Uniti Atom, but here Naim has drawn big old capital S’s on Style and Substance"

"In a way it would be easy to understate just how great a performer the Uniti Atom is, insofar as it’s kind-of what we have come to expect from Naim. But if you end up hearing one and fail to be excited at the prospect of ownership then, quite frankly, there’s little hope left for you."

Under the Skin of Uniti Atom

We’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to maximise the sound quality from such a compact all-in-one player. From the substantial transformer, which ensures that the power supply is always smooth and stable, to the sophisticated, hand-wired analogue and digital circuitry, every element of the design in Uniti Atom has been considered for its effect on sound quality.

Control Your Way

New and improved Naim app

The new intuitive Naim App gives you effortless control over individual or multiple Uniti products. You can access all of your music, including your favourite radio stations, streaming services and playlists, or explore artist discographies and biographies. Furthermore, you can now update your system wirelessly with a single tap. The new app also allows you to control both Naim streaming products and hard-disk servers, so there’s no need for two separate apps.

Glass display and intuitive remote control

Uniti Atom features a full-colour 5” LCD glass display with a proximity sensor that wakes up on approach, accompanied by a bidirectional intelligent remote control that works in harmony with the unit’s volume control. Giving you complete freedom of movement, Uniti is a joy to use.

Image

Purposeful Materiality

Uniti has been impeccably crafted with materials chosen to be in complete service of the sound. The extruded aluminium heat sinks that run down the length of the product extract heat to maximise thermal stability for increased longevity and sonic performance. The beautifully brushed aluminium top plates are CNC-fabricated for absolute precision and provide a perfect enclosure for the delicate components inside.

Precision Volume Control

At the heart of Uniti is an audiophile volume control which adjusts level in the analogue domain to a premium digital resolution. Its ultra-smooth rotation and illumination is inspired by our reference amplification system, Statement. The lit volume segments are reflected in the same fashion on Uniti Atom’s intuitive remote control and will adjust accordingly on the top surface ring if the volume is changed remotely. We’ve also hidden the Bluetooth antenna here for a seamless aesthetic.

Image

Give Your Music Some Colour

With the Uniti range we wanted to deliver total connection to the user’s music collection. A highly polished full-colour 5” LCD display provides rich images of album artwork and content. The screens have proximity sensors and will therefore wake up as someone approaches the machine to display music metadata, audio input information and more. There is also a selection of front-panel buttons including Favourites, Stop and Play.

Image

Upgradeable Performance

In true Naim style, the new Uniti Atom can be upgraded with one our external power amplifiers, such as the compact NAP 100. You can also add a subwoofer for deeper bass extension. And for those with extensive CD collections, you can add a Uniti Core music server to your system to store and stream thousands of albums to your Uniti player and back up all of your music in one place.

Naim's new NDX 2 network player -

Streamlined connectivity from an exceptionally engaging network player

Image

With its world-class performance, the versatile and upgradable NDX 2 embodies the current state of the art. A host of features such as high-res UPnPTM streaming, AirPlay, Chromecast built-in, Bluetooth (aptX HD), Spotify Connect, TIDAL, Roon compatibility, vTuner internet radio and multiroom streaming as well as digital and USB inputs provide all the connectivity you could wish for.

Our main focus in developing the NDX 2 network player, however, was its performance. Along with Naim’s bespoke streaming platform, we implemented an upgraded DAC and discrete analogue stages. These and numerous other improvements over its acclaimed predecessor make the NDX 2 a sonic force to be reckoned with, offering highly immersive and lively replay quality.

Naim NDX 2 Features -

• UPnP-enabled to allow streaming of audio files at up to 32bit/384kHz resolution from Naim Audio hard disk servers, network-attached storage (NAS) devices or any home computer
• Supports a broad range of music formats: WAV, FLAC, DSD, Apple Lossless, AIFF, AAC, Windows Media-formatted files, M4A and MP3. Gapless playback on all file formats
• Four 24bit/192kHz capable digital inputs (S/PDIF) to support optimum connection to external sources
• 5” colour display presenting album artwork as well as track information
• Built-in Chromecast allows you to stream from hundreds of supported smartphone or tablet apps (192kHz)
• Apple AirPlay - stream music from your iOS device or from iTunes and Apple Music
• Spotify Connect built-in to stream millions of songs from the world’s most popular streaming service
• Native support for TIDAL streaming service with free 90 day trial of lossless HiFi tier
• Front-panel USB port for replay of MP3 player and USB-stored audio (1.6A charge)
• vTuner 5* full-service internet radio
• Multiroom & Party Mode compatible
• iOS and Android Naim Audio app for intuitive control
• Bluetooth connectivity with aptX HD codec for quality audio playback
• Thanks to RC5 system integration, you can control compatible amplifiers that are connected to your network player directly from the Naim app on a phone or tablet.
• Bi-directional, Zigbee®-compatible remote control
• Roon ready - turning your music collection into a beautifully laid out catalogue

Naim NDX 2 Technology & Craft -

The Burr-Brown® PCM1792A digital-to-analogue converter working alongside our new streaming platform is one of the best available. We improved its performance even further by implementing our own digital filters and adding a discrete current to voltage converter immediately after the DAC.

The streaming section of the NDX 2 uses the latest Naim network card featuring low noise, high-speed low-voltage differential signalling (LVDS) to route the digital audio signal. The higher speed is capable of decoding all HD audio formats at up to 32 bits/384 kHz or DSD128. Rather than the source acting as the digital timing master, our new streaming board turns things around and allows our DAC clock to control the flow of audio data. The data is integer-over-sampled in a SHARC DSP to an incredible 40-bit accuracy before it’s fed to the Burr-Brown DAC.

The NDX 2 features an integrated low-noise power supply with a custom-designed toroidal transformer and separate windings for the digital and analogue sections. However, the player can be upgraded with an external XPS DR or 555 PS DR power supply, giving you a marked increase in sonic authority and emotion.

During the development of the NDX 2, our engineers examined every detail, from mechanical construction, component selection and board layout. The result is a network player worthy of the Naim badge, with a sound that’s rich, detailed and engaging.

Naim Audio's new ND 555 Network Player

Image

Pure musicality with our most advanced streaming platform -

Our reference network player is quite simply the best source component we’ve ever developed. Drawing on decades of digital and analogue engineering experience, the ND 555 marries our innovative new streaming platform with classic Naim analogue technology. It features a 40-bit SHARC processor with advanced signal processing, a suspended brass sub-chassis to isolate sound-critical circuits from vibrations and the best external power supply we’ve ever made. Whether you’re listening to Bonham’s solid groove or Coltrane’s dizzying scales, the ND 555 lets the music flow with astonishing ease and uniquely engaging musicality. Partnered with Statement or 500 series amplification, we believe the ND 555 is as close to live music as it gets.

Naim's story begins with one man’s passion for music and weaves its way through four decades and a raft of iconic product launches to the present day.

Naim Audio founder Julian Vereker MBE (1945-2000) was a racing car driver, entrepreneur and self-taught engineer with a deep passion for music. Spending his spare time listening to and recording his friends playing live in the 1960s, Julian found that playback on his system at home fell woefully short of the experience he craved.

Not content with second best he decided to design his own amplifiers and loudspeakers, ignoring accepted wisdom and focusing on aspects of performance that made music burst to life. These first designs laid the foundations for a range of iconic and award-winning hi-fi products that would reach well into the next century.

You're a nobody without a Naim

A rich audio heritage -

The ND 555 is the result of over four decades of audio engineering. From our state-of-the-art streaming module to powerful, natural-sounding audio stages – every element of this network player is built on our design DNA, giving it that distinctive, captivating Naim sound. The ND 555 development process also helped us step foot into new technologies: for the first time, we’ve added low-voltage differential signalling (LVDS) to a premium Naim player. We chose LVDS because it minimises timing errors due to its fast speed and it minimises radiation thanks to its low noise.

The ND 555 is bristling with innovative technology from input to output. The streaming section uses the latest Naim network card featuring low-noise, high-speed LVDS to route the digital audio signal. The higher speed is capable of decoding all HD audio formats at up to 32 bits/384 kHz or DSD128. Rather than the source acting as the digital timing master, our new streaming board turns things around and allows our DAC clock to control the flow of audio data. The data is integer-over-sampled in a SHARC DSP to an incredible 40-bit accuracy and fed into the Burr-Brown® PCM1704, a true R2R ladder DAC valued for its exceptional sound quality.

Naim’s renowned DR regulator technology, as used in our range of amplifiers and power supplies, makes its first appearance in a network player, providing ultra-pure DC voltage to the sensitive audio circuitry in the ND 555. The analogue stages use only high-grade through-hole components and are suspended on sprung sub-chassis with heavy brass plates to minimise the effects of microphony.

Absolute control -

There are several ways to control ND 555. The Naim App for iOS and Android gives you complete control over individual or multiple Naim products. You can access all of your music including radio pre-sets, streaming services and playlists, sync several Naim players for multiroom playback or explore artist discographies and biographies. The app also controls our Uniti Core music server (so there’s no need for two separate apps) and allows you to update your system wirelessly with a single tap.

For those who prefer a more tactile experience, a premium metal Zigbee® remote control is supplied. It requires no line of sight to the player, so you can take control whatever direction you’re facing. The front panel features a 5” colour display presenting album artwork as well as track information in crisp detail, and there are keys for most commonly used functions including standby and input selection.

Naim Audio's new ND5 XS 2 Network Player

Image

The ND5 XS 2 uses our innovative new streaming platform with an expanded feature set. High-res UPnP™ streaming, AirPlay, Chromecast built-in, Bluetooth (apt X HD), Spotify Connect, TIDAL, Roon compatibility, internet radio and multiroom streaming – alongside digital and USB inputs for conventional connections – make this versatile player the ideal partner for one of our integrated amplifiers.

Carefully selected and matched parts, an oversized toroidal transformer, decoupled PCB boards: the ND5 XS 2 benefits from classic Naim engineering and fastidious attention to detail to ensure that it delivers natural, engaging sound quality from all sources.


Naim Audio ND5 XS 2 UK RRP £2000

Image

Naim's story begins with one man’s passion for music and weaves its way through four decades and a raft of iconic product launches to the present day.

Naim Audio founder Julian Vereker MBE (1945-2000) was a racing car driver, entrepreneur and self-taught engineer with a deep passion for music. Spending his spare time listening to and recording his friends playing live in the 1960s, Julian found that playback on his system at home fell woefully short of the experience he craved.

Not content with second best he decided to design his own amplifiers and loudspeakers, ignoring accepted wisdom and focusing on aspects of performance that made music burst to life. These first designs laid the foundations for a range of iconic and award-winning hi-fi products that would reach well into the next century.

The higher speed is capable of decoding all HD audio formats at up to 32 bits/384 kHz or DSD128. Rather than the source acting as the digital timing master, our new streaming board turns things around and allows our DAC clock to control the flow of audio data. The data is integer-over-sampled in a SHARC DSP to an incredible 40-bit accuracy before it’s fed to the PCM1791A Burr-Brown digital-to analogue converter.

Developing a new streaming platform was one of the biggest projects we have ever taken on. Naim engineers across all disciplines – electronic, industrial, acoustic and mechanical – worked for three years to create a system that could make the most of online services such as TIDAL and Spotify while adding future-proof flexibility through Chromecast built-in. Supporting faster data rates with dual-band Wi-Fi and the latest 802.11ac protocol, this robust platform was designed for the highest performance on every level.

What Hi-Fi reviews Naim Audio's Uniti Nova All-in-one player

https://www.whathifi.com/naim/uniti-nova/review

"Our overriding impression of the Nova is that of absolute virtuosity."

"Think of it in terms of technical excellence of the type Eric Clapton, Cate Blanchett or Jessica Ennis-Hill demonstrate – to watch them at work is to watch the horribly demanding made to appear simple and straightforward. That’s what the Nova does. Its command of the frequency range, from deep, textured, expressive bass notes to crisp, explicit treble sounds, is absolute."

"As complete and convincing an argument for one-box convenience as you’ll hear.

Uniti Nova is proof that an all-in-one player can deliver audiophile quality. Whichever source you choose, your music will be transformed into a stunning sonic experience. The reference player in the range, Uniti Nova has been configured to offer the very best solution that we can implement in a single-box, compact enclosure. All the available space has been used to provide 80 watts per channel of Class A/B amplification capable of driving the most demanding loudspeakers – detail and depth you’ll hear in every note, riff and chorus.

Stereophile reviews Naim Audio's Uniti Nova All-in-one player

https://www.stereophile.com/content/nai ... dia-player

"My hard drive organizes music alphabetically, and I had so much fun with the Nova that I barely made it past "A." Throughout my listening time, the Nova was supremely transparent to the source, with little personality of its own beyond a delicious liquidity as it projected lifelike aural images on a large stage with a consistently rich demeanor."

"file after file drove my jaw floorward as my ears reveled in the Nova's beautiful sound: more meaty and rich than filled with light and repeatedly allowing music a welcome, natural quality that was reliable, source to source."

When you add up its many features and functions—its DAC, amplifier power reserves, Internet radio, streaming capability, and exceptional build quality—and compare it with other offerings costing in the neighborhood of $7000, the Uniti Nova is practically a bargain. Definitely, effusively, highly recommended."

The Ear reviews Naim Audio's Uniti Nova All-in-one player

http://the-ear.net/review-hardware/naim ... -amplifier

"It’s one of those products that makes reviewers lives difficult, you put it in the system, let it settle down and before you know it the music is flowing and the notion of taking notes and making odious comparisons goes out of the window."

"As mentioned earlier the Nova is the complete package for the streaming generation of music lovers, whether your tunes are stored on a hard drive (USB or NAS) or you want to stream from the Cloud it will turn them into an engaging experience that you want to repeat whenever possible. The Chromecast feature is also handy if your preferred streaming service is not provided, I used this with Qobuz and got great sound if not entirely glitch free streaming. All in all however this is a fabulous piece of kit that will keep all but the obsessed happy for years if not decades to come, it really does put the one box solution on the high fidelity map."

"Don’t be fooled by the gorgeous metal casework, for the Uniti Atom is more than just a pretty face. Its large top-mounted volume control is intuitive to use while the crisp looking, informative display makes accessing the Atom’s myriad functions easier. A streamer, DAC and preamp are all built-in together with the same gutsy power amplifier design seen in the company’s grown-up NAIT integrated amps. It’s extremely flexible with Google Chromecast, Tidal, Spotify Connect and Internet radio on board, plus AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth aptX HD. The accompanying Naim app is well thought out and easy to use, and allows for multiroom use. Smooth, detailed and dynamic, this is a super sounding small system."

These first designs laid the foundations for a range of iconic and award-winning hi-fi products that would reach well into the next century.

What Hi-Fi reviews Naim's new Uniti Atom Compact High-End All-in-One Player

"Rarely does a product look and sound as good as the Uniti Atom, but here Naim has drawn big old capital S’s on Style and Substance"

"In a way it would be easy to understate just how great a performer the Uniti Atom is, insofar as it’s kind-of what we have come to expect from Naim. But if you end up hearing one and fail to be excited at the prospect of ownership then, quite frankly, there’s little hope left for you."

The Ear reviews Naim's Uniti Atom Compact High-End All-in-One Player

"this is a beautifully executed (even the packaging is top notch) and musically thrilling piece of kit in remarkably compact form. It deserves to be very popular indeed"

AV Forums reviews Naim's new Uniti Atom Compact High-End All-in-One Player

'It is a testimony to how impressive the Naim is that even after a year of waiting, this is still a product that feels like it has moved the game on. This is the smallest and most affordable of the Uniti products – one that costs significantly less than some of the models we have looked at – but it still manages to compete on pretty much even terms. The addition of Chromecast support and the HDMI input are not, on their own, revolutionary but they help to create a product that is a superbly judged balance of flexibility and sheer performance. It’s been a long time coming but the Uniti Atom is here now and it is unquestionably a Best Buy."

Under the Skin of Uniti Atom

We’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to maximise the sound quality from such a compact all-in-one player. From the substantial transformer, which ensures that the power supply is always smooth and stable, to the sophisticated, hand-wired analogue and digital circuitry, every element of the design in Uniti Atom has been considered for its effect on sound quality.

Control Your Way

New and improved Naim app

The new intuitive Naim App gives you effortless control over individual or multiple Uniti products. You can access all of your music, including your favourite radio stations, streaming services and playlists, or explore artist discographies and biographies. Furthermore, you can now update your system wirelessly with a single tap. The new app also allows you to control both Naim streaming products and hard-disk servers, so there’s no need for two separate apps.

Glass display and intuitive remote control

Uniti Atom features a full-colour 5” LCD glass display with a proximity sensor that wakes up on approach, accompanied by a bidirectional intelligent remote control that works in harmony with the unit’s volume control. Giving you complete freedom of movement, Uniti is a joy to use.

Bringing Uniti to Life

Conceived and built from the ground up by our engineers and designers in Salisbury, England, Uniti remains true to our core design principles. From the finned aluminium heatsinks (inspired by our Statement flagship amplification system) to the brushed black aluminium casing, the new illuminated signature volume control and the beautifully lit base – every minute detail has been considered to deliver a beautiful aesthetic packed with features and technology whilst achieving reference-level sound quality. Uniti is a true masterpiece of industrial design.

Purposeful Materiality

Uniti has been impeccably crafted with materials chosen to be in complete service of the sound. The extruded aluminium heat sinks that run down the length of the product extract heat to maximise thermal stability for increased longevity and sonic performance. The beautifully brushed aluminium top plates are CNC-fabricated for absolute precision and provide a perfect enclosure for the delicate components inside.

Precision Volume Control

At the heart of Uniti is an audiophile volume control which adjusts level in the analogue domain to a premium digital resolution. Its ultra-smooth rotation and illumination is inspired by our reference amplification system, Statement. The lit volume segments are reflected in the same fashion on Uniti Atom’s intuitive remote control and will adjust accordingly on the top surface ring if the volume is changed remotely. We’ve also hidden the Bluetooth antenna here for a seamless aesthetic.

Give Your Music Some Colour

With the Uniti range we wanted to deliver total connection to the user’s music collection. A highly polished full-colour 5” LCD display provides rich images of album artwork and content. The screens have proximity sensors and will therefore wake up as someone approaches the machine to display music metadata, audio input information and more. There is also a selection of front-panel buttons including Favourites, Stop and Play.

Upgradeable Performance

In true Naim style, the new Uniti Atom can be upgraded with one our external power amplifiers, such as the compact NAP 100. You can also add a subwoofer for deeper bass extension. And for those with extensive CD collections, you can add a Uniti Core music server to your system to store and stream thousands of albums to your Uniti player and back up all of your music in one place.

Naim's story begins with one man’s passion for music and weaves its way through four decades and a raft of iconic product launches to the present day.

Naim Audio founder Julian Vereker MBE (1945-2000) was a racing car driver, entrepreneur and self-taught engineer with a deep passion for music. Spending his spare time listening to and recording his friends playing live in the 1960s, Julian found that playback on his system at home fell woefully short of the experience he craved.

Not content with second best he decided to design his own amplifiers and loudspeakers, ignoring accepted wisdom and focusing on aspects of performance that made music burst to life. These first designs laid the foundations for a range of iconic and award-winning hi-fi products that would reach well into the next century.

Naim's Uniti Atom Compact High-End All-in-One Player is awarded EISA's best ‘All-in-One System’ 2018 – 2019

https://www.eisa.eu/awards/naim-audio-uniti-atom/

"Don’t be fooled by the gorgeous metal casework, for the Uniti Atom is more than just a pretty face. Its large top-mounted volume control is intuitive to use while the crisp looking, informative display makes accessing the Atom’s myriad functions easier. A streamer, DAC and preamp are all built-in together with the same gutsy power amplifier design seen in the company’s grown-up NAIT integrated amps. It’s extremely flexible with Google Chromecast, Tidal, Spotify Connect and Internet radio on board, plus AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth aptX HD. The accompanying Naim app is well thought out and easy to use, and allows for multiroom use. Smooth, detailed and dynamic, this is a super sounding small system."
