Uniti Nova Streaming Integrated Amplifier
The Nova is the flagship model of the upgraded Naim Audio Uniti range. Whilst it has the versatility, style and usability of the rest of the range, the Nova really takes another leap forward in sound quality.
The design and development which has gone into this product is staggering. Naim have put in an incredible amount of effort to ensure that they can get a real impression audiophile solution out of their standard uniti sized enclosure. This includes an impressive 80 watts per channel integrated amplifier.
The Uniti Nova also features more inputs that the Star model, with the inclusion of 2 extra analogue inputs, making that 4 analogue and 5 digital inputs.
To say the Uniti range is versatile is a huge understatement. The Uniti Star features a 80 watt class A/B amplifier, internet radio, bluetooth, a headphone output, uPnP, Tidal integration, Spotify connect, Airplay, Google Cast, an S/PDIF Digital input, analogue output, multi-room functionality and USB / SD Card slots.
On the new Uniti series, Naim have put a lot of effort into improving the wi-fi. It now supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz and features an improved internal buffer and memory. It is able to store 5 minutes of information which vastly decreases the amount of dropouts when streaming.
Conceived and built from the ground up by Naim engineers and designers in Salisbury, England, Naim have ensured the Uniti Star has been crafted with exceptional materials chosen for the sound. Uniti remains true to our core design principles. From the finned aluminium heat sinks (inspired by our Statement flagship amplification system) to the brushed black aluminium casing, the new illuminated signature volume control and the beautifully lit base.
Anybody looking to get into streaming and wants a really impressive yet simple system needs to seriously consider the Uniti Nova.
