Why is music streaming the way forward for hi-fi?
We all know that computing and networking now play a major role in many of our home music system set-ups. However, when it comes to playing music back in an impressive and enjoyable way that recreates the passion and excitement of the original recording, most computer sound cards and speakers fall way short of even the minimum levels of true hi-fi audio quality.
Naim’s portfolio includes a range of streaming music players that can be connected to hi-fi components over the home network either via hardwire Ethernet or wirelessly, giving extreme convenience and ease of use. To complete the set-up, Naim’s n-Stream and n-Serve apps allow you to browse your music and control your Naim devices using an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.
Next-generation sound systems
Naim’s state-of-the-art and award-winning streaming music players are on show at your local Naim specialist store demonstrating exactly how Naim is transforming the way music is played in the home.
Naim’s range of network players includes the new reference NDS network player, which uses the latest in high-resolution network audio technology and the NDX network player, Naim’s first ever stand-alone streaming source. The entry-level ND5 XS completes the rage. All three deliver genuine audiophile performance whether streaming music stored around the home, playing audio files stored on iPod, iPhone or USB memory sticks, or any of the 15,000 + available internet radio stations. The HDX is the ultimate digital all-rounder which can rip, store, catalogue and play your music in superb quality. The unit is controlled via the front-panel touchscreen display, remote control, PC or Mac interfaces or the n-Serve app.
For the total convenience of streaming music throughout the home, Naim’s range of all-in-ones delivers on all counts. Whether it’s the reference SuperUniti all-in-one player, Naim’s latest addition to the Uniti family; UnitiServe which, like the HDX allows you to rip, store and share your music collection; NaimUniti or compact Naim UnitiQute all-in-one streaming music players which can be placed around the home to form a high-end multi-room system, Naim has the solution to all music requirements.

UnitiSystem multi-room music system
The ultimate high performance and high convenience, wireless, distributed, home audio system
Naim's UnitiSystem represents a new approach to enjoying high fidelity music around the home. Simpler than traditional multi-room and focused purely on convenient access to music, UnitiSystem recasts the hi-fi rulebook and can, literally, re-wire your music. Simplicity and convenience aren't provided at the cost of true hi-fi performance, however; a Naim badge ensures that UnitiSystem delivers world-beating sound quality. UnitiSystem brings genuine Naim, audiophile, high-resolution sound quality to every room of the house.
UnitiSystem is "grown-up" hi-fi made simple. UnitiSystem comprises the SuperUniti, NaimUniti 2 and UnitiQute multi-source, all-in-one players, and the UnitiServe CD ripping UPnPTM music server.
With a UnitiServe as the hub of the system, and any combination of the SuperUniti, NaimUniti 2 or UnitiQute as satellite players, a simple wired or wireless network and a pair of speakers for each room can light up an immensely capable and fabulous sounding multi-room music system. System control can be via touch screens, conventional handsets, a PC or Mac, as well as an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch app.

UnitiLite all-in-one player
This all-in-one audio player takes the feature set of the award-winning NaimUniti, including high-resolution music streaming (up to 32bit 192kHz), CD playback, internet radio and iPod/iPhone/MP3 playback and distils it into an elegant, sleek enclosure.
Like Naim's other streaming devices the UnitiLite can be Ethernet or Wi-Fi network connected and is UPnP-enabled to stream audio stored on the home network and access internet radio.
All you need to add is a pair of speakers to create an accessible all-in-one system that can put music at the centre of your life. Read more at the Naim website...
DAC-V1 and NAP100 power amplifier
Designed for the music-lover who uses a computer as their main source of music, the DAC-V1 allows you to play back your audio files in stunning Naim sound quality. The DAC-V1 is also a remote controlled digital preamplifier with five S/PDIF digital inputs, a volume control and a very high quality headphone facility; Naim’s research indicates an increasing number of computer audio listeners are spending a significant amount of time listening through headphones.
The matching NAP 100 power amplifier delivers 50 watts per channel into 8 ohms – enough to fill all but the largest of rooms with sound – and together with the DAC-V1 makes a compact and stylish system.
It’s digital, made musical.
