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

    "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."

    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.

    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.


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

    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.

    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 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.

    "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"

    https://www.avforums.com/review/naim...m-review.13799
    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."

    "In short, I loved it and placed it on the C.A.S.H. List."

    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.


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

    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.


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

    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.


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

    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.

    Hi-Fi News reviews Naim Audio's NAP 250 DR power amplifier

    https://www.naimaudio.com/sites/defa...20250%20DR.pdf

    "Naim’s Discrete Regulation and bespoke transistor technology from its flagship Statement amplifier combine to revitalise the company’s classic power amp."

    "No mistaking the huge toroidal transformer feeding dual, discretely-regulated PSUs for the NAP 250 DR’s voltage and power output stages. Naim’s NA009 transistors are mounted under the central (black) heatsinking."

    "Obvious even from a brief listen is the sheer power of the amplifier – and here I’m not talking about the figures on paper, which are easily bettered by plenty of amplifiers selling for less than the Naim, but the way it propels music along, and the impact it can deliver. Not only does the NAP 250 DR prove capable of presenting bass with a satisfying – and often surprising – weight and slam, it also shows just how well-controlled is its low end, with speed and dexterity when a drum-kit and/or electric bass is motoring."

    "Similar qualities were very much in evidence with the Kansas City Symphony/Michael Stern recording of Britten’s Young Person’s Guide To The Orchestra [DSD64 from Reference Recordings RR-120SACD]. This is not just a great system-tester due to its encyclopaedic survey of the instruments of the orchestra, but also due to its remarkable dynamics. Listening to the great final fugue building via the Naim is a truly spectacular experience, from the fine detailing in the woodwind right through to the great slams of the full band at the end."

    "But it lives up to the promise of its near-16kg fi ghting weight and that massive toroidal transformer dominating the interior view with a sound that can hit hard, play it cool or just captivate with the sheer detail and musicality on offer."

    Naim Audio NAP 250 DR - Modern yet classic

    Few components in the history of hi-fi can match the pedigree of the mighty NAP 250. First introduced in 1975, its regular updates – both aesthetic and technical – have kept it at the very forefront of power amplifier performance for more than three decades, creating unforgettable musical experiences for countless music lovers worldwide.

    The latest NAP 250 DR lives up to the challenge set by its predecessors. Housed in the low-resonance, anodised aluminium enclosure of the Classic Series, it delivers 80W per channel (into 8ohms) with all the speed, power and agility needed to unleash your music.

    New for 2015 – Statement technology

    Our flagship Statement amplification system was ten years in the making. The research and development project drew on all of our knowledge and expertise, yielding several breakthroughs in technology. Now for 2015 we’ve introduced two new technologies from the Statement project to our core range of power amplifiers.

    The NAP 250 DR now features the new NA009 transistors first introduced in Statement. In development for over a year, this key component was created in partnership with a specialist semi-conductor manufacturer to achieve the best possible sound quality. The NAP 250 DR also includes the high power Naim DR (Discrete Regulator) technology used in Statement to provide the smooth, stable power supply we know is critical for the audio electronics to make music come to life.

    These two new technologies, combined with other small improvements to layout and componentry, mean the NAP 250 DR can produce even more of the fundamental musical pace, rhythm and timing that made the originals so popular with music lovers.

    Features

    80W per channel output into 8 ohms
    Large custom-designed transformer providing 400VA of transient power
    Advanced 009 output transistors, as used in our reference NAP 500 and Statement power amplifier

    Technology & Craft

    Like the flagship NAP 500 DR, and the NAP 300 DR, the NAP 250 DRuses a new circuit design with improved earthing arrangements, built on a very high quality, anti-resonance main audio circuit board. The NAP 250 DR uses the same 009 transistors that were custom-designed for the statement amplification. These outstanding components each provide up to 80 amps and 350 Watts, negating the need to use parallel pairs of transistors (which always have a negative effect on sound). Additional 009 transistors are used in the fully regulated power supply, ensuring the very best performance.

    A new top-quality transformer is used providing the ability to deliver more than 15 Amps and swing a massive 400VA on transients. The NAP 250 DR is stable into any load and able to drive a 2-Ohm load for long periods of time.

    Hi-Fi Critic reviews Naim Audio's new NDX 2 network player and optional 555 PS DR power supply -

    https://www.naimaudio.com/sites/defa...2%20review.pdf

    ANDREW EVERARD THINKS THAT THIS SECOND-GENERATION OF NAIM’S NDX NETWORK AUDIO PLAYER HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR GREATNESS

    "it was interesting hear just how well the new player could bring out the scale and ambience of a recording, not to mention the detail it manages to unearth."

    "The NDX 2 delighted, with real punch from the big drums and the rasp of the band; only adding the 555 PS DR showed that this player could give even more."

    "And with the power supply bolted on? Wow! This gives a tighter focus on the duo, and yet the atmosphere around them is more apparent, spacious and – well, atmospheric."

    "By any standards, it’s an excellent player, both in its flexibility and, most of all, its performance."

    "The non augmented machine is also pretty special at its price point. Clarity, image depth precision and dynamics are a prime strength, while still greater resolution and improved timing may be had with those optional extra power supplies. An Audio Excellence rating seems appropriate for the NDX 2/555 PS DR combination."

    Streamlined connectivity from an exceptionally engaging network player -


    Naim Audio's new NDX 2 network player is at Musicraft (Derby) -

    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 Audio's 555 PS DR power supply is at Musicraft (Derby)

    Not everyone sees hi-fi as we do. For us, a smooth, stable, low-noise power supply isn’t just desirable: it’s fundamental to proper hi-fi performance. Nowhere is that belief more clearly exemplified than in our reference 555 PS DR, the best power supply in our portfolio. Whatever Naim Audio product it partners, the 555 PS DR will improve every aspect of your favourite music. Voices and instruments become clearer and more natural. Perceived dynamic range increases too, while timing – music’s fundamental sense of rhythm and accuracy – snaps into even greater focus.

    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.
