Naim Audio have really pushed the performance envelope to maximise the sound quality from this all-in-one music system that replaces the Uniti 2 model. Starting with the substantial mains transformer guaranteeing a rock steady power reserve to the sophisticated, hand-wired analogue and digital circuitry, every single piece of the design in Uniti Star has been considered for its effect on sound quality.
Uniti has been developed from the ground up with a completely new, extremely powerful and versatile streaming board. This innovative new platform is much more powerful than its predecessor. It is equiped with substantial memory and is adaptable to new technology effortlessly. It also seamlessly integrates with other network-connected Naim systems, including the Mu-so wireless music system.
Uniti Star uses a powerful 70-watt A/B-class amplifier with technology taken from the iconic NAIT integrated amps. They have also installed the largest power supply possible as well as the finest-quality SMD circuitry and premium Burr Brown DACs to deliver the unique Naim pace, rhythm and timing that they are renowned for. The latest Uniti all-in-one players include the very latest Wi-Fi technology with the superior Wi-Fi processor supporting 2.4 and 5 GHz, alongside a much better internal buffer and memory creating a much more stable network connection. Uniti Star allows you to connect an external USB-connected drive so you can store up to 20,000 tracks and play them back through your all-in-one player. You can also use your Uniti Star to serve music to up to six network-connected players in a multiroom system.
The Star offers bit-perfect CD ripping to create files that you can either play back or serve to any UPnPTM-capable streamer on your home network and then can store them locally on a USB-connected device or SD card, either in WAV or FLAC lossless format. Uniti Star uses a unique ripping engine to ensure that the ripped data represents a faultless replica of the CD, even with badly damaged discs. The new intuitive Naim App gives you effortless and intuitive 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.
The Uniti Star 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 should you not wish to use the free Naim App. It is also possible to purchase the Star with a Tuner module in addition to the standard fit Internet radio capability. Conceived and built from the ground up by Naim engineers and designers in Salisbury, England, Uniti remains true to their core design principles. From the finned aluminum heatsinks (inspired by the Statement flagship amplification system) to the brushed black aluminum 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.
