Under the Skin of Uniti NOVA
Uniti Nova really lives up to its name with some outstanding new technology which really sets it apart from the rest of the range. Its circuitry features the highest quality discrete components, a massive toroidal transformer for an exceptional sound, superior isolation, our new signature volume control, more inputs than you can shake a stick at and an 80 watt power per channel power amplifier to boot. Uniti Nova is as good as an all-in-one player can get.
Revolutionary New Streaming Platform
Uniti has been developed with a completely new, extremely powerful and versatile streaming board. This innovative new platform is extremely powerful, has masses of memory, will adapt to new technology effortlessly and seamlessly integrates with other network-connected Naim systems, including the Mu-so wireless music system.
A Closer Look at Uniti's Digital Brain
The new Uniti Star features an incredibly powerful, phenomenally accurate fourth-generation 40-bit SHARC DSP processor. Unique Naim software minimises jitter (timing errors inherent in digital music streaming) and using Naim's RAM buffer (first used in the Naim DAC and NDS), oversamples the audio 16 times to feed the premium Burr Brown DACs, resulting in a smoother and more precise sonic performance.
Uniti Nova allows you to plug in an external USB-connected drive or SD card 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 Nova to serve music to up to four network-connected players in a multiroom system.
New Uniti all-in-one players include the very latest Wi-Fi technology. The superior Wi-Fi processor supports 2.4 and 5 GHz, alongside a much better internal buffer and memory - Uniti Nova will store up to five minutes worth of data, which results in far fewer dropouts. The Wi-Fi aerials (one on either side of the product for optimum range) are integrated behind a slot machined into the heat sink, a patent-pending system that provides robust connectivity without the need for an external aerial.
Class A/B Amplification
Driving this digital innovation is an 80-watt amplifier with technology derived from our most iconic and best-loved integrated amp, the NAIT. The filter sections in Uniti Nova are made using the finest-quality through-hole film capacitors and discrete transistors. The power amplifier sections are now twice as fast and run from linear power supplies with substantial transformers and we've also installed premium Burr Brown DACs to deliver the unique Naim pace, rhythm and timing.
