Rip, store, serve and play your music
UPnP™ (Universal Plug ‘n’ Play)
Serve your music to as many as 12 Uniti all-in-one players or other Naim streamers with up to 32 bits/384 kHz. Uniti Core will scan the network for shared audio files, including your iTunes library.
Create bit-perfect copies of your CDs, store them internally or to a USB-connected storage device and play them back via Uniti Core (external DAC or digital-input amplifier required).
Connect your external DAC or digital-input amplifier to the precisely timed, re-clocked transformer-isolated S/PDIF output on the rear panel.
Storage and Back up
You can choose to fit an HDD (Hard-Disk Drive) or SSD (Solid-State Drive) with a capacity of up to 8 TB – enough space for 100,000 tracks. Alternatively, you can connect an external NAS (Network-Attached Storage) or a USB-connected storage device. NAS and USB storage can also be used as back-up locations.
Supports a broad range of music formats including WAV, FLAC, DSD, Apple Lossless, AIFF, AAC, Windows Media-formatted files, Ogg Vorbis and MP3.
Update your system at the touch of a button via the Naim app.
So much more than a music server
- User changeable hard drive with an easily removable hard drive caddy. The caddy is also decoupled, reducing noise transfer from the HDD throughout the server.
- NXP iMX6 Quad core 1GHz processor, running a modified Linux operating system specially tailored to our motherboard (bottom layer PCB).
- Extruded aluminium heat sinks to dissipate residual heat, resulting in a cool running system.
- Unique ripping engine to ensure that the extracted data represents a flawless, bit-perfect copy of the CD.
- High-speed 3 Gbps SATA connection to the hard drive with bespoke high-quality SATA cables.
- Suspended electro-magnetic shield (middle layer) above the power supplies prevents any noise from this area transmitting to the soundcard output.
Easy App control – in one room or many
