UPnP Streaming

 

Experience the versatility of digital streaming without losing the simplicity and quality of playing CDs or LPs with Uniti using UPnP streaming.  

To get started simply open the Naim control app on your iOS or Android device and select UPnP. The Uniti will then discover all the music stored on your network, either on dedicated storage devices or computers. You will then be able to play back at up to 24bit/192kHz resolution.

Spotify Connect

 

Our Uniti all-in-one players have all the power of Spotify built-in. Spotify Connect for Uniti gives access to the millions of songs of the world’s most popular streaming service via your hi-fi system.

With a Spotify Premium subscription users can control Spotify and play back wirelessly directly from their Uniti streaming product. As the Uniti streams directly from Spotify’s servers, the battery life of the device is preserved and is free to open other apps and make calls without interrupting the music.

Designed and hand made for music

 

Each element of the design and every material used in the Uniti range has been considered for its effect on sound quality. Large transformers ensure a high-quality power supply while non-magnetic, anti-resonance aluminium casework provides the best platform for the sophisticated analogue and digital circuitry within to shine. Innovations in digital technology include a novel technique to minimise jitter first introduced in the Naim DAC and the use of optical isolation to protect sensitive audio electronics from interference. Add to this an integrated amplifier derived from one of our most iconic products, the NAIT, and you have the best of Naim engineering combined in a single, elegant enclosure.

Every Uniti product is hand-wired and assembled by our skilled technicians in Salisbury, England. They're built to last too. Invest in Naim and you can expect many years of musical enjoyment.
