Product Details from the Brand

Any mention of "us," "we," "our," etc is by Naim, not Audio46

Uniti Core is the ultimate music manager, able to create bit-perfect copies of your favourite CDs and serve them and the rest of your digital music collection up to music players around your home. Simply load a CD and Uniti Core will expertly rip and catalogue your music. Choose from a range of internal and external storage options for your new digital library. Uniti Core is the perfect music-server partner not just for the Uniti Atom, Uniti Star and Uniti Nova players, but many other music-streaming players, speaker or systems, from Naim and beyond. It can stream to up to 12 different players at once. As well as being a sleek music archivist and server, Uniti Core can also act as a superb music source. Award-winning performance combines with excellent build quality and usability, wrapped in a beautiful British design that will give you years of entertainment. Master the Uniti Core and explore a world of music via the Naim App.

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.

CD Ripping

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).

Digital Output

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.

File Formats

Supports a broad range of music formats including WAV, FLAC, DSD, Apple Lossless, AIFF, AAC, Windows Media-formatted files, Ogg Vorbis and MP3.

Wireless Updates

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

The Naim App – available for Apple and Android devices – makes it simple to control your Uniti Core, and even link up other music systems around your home into a stunning multi-room set-up.

Use the App to access all your music, including your favourite radio stations, streaming services and playlists, and explore artist discographies and biographies.
