NaimUniti 2: an evolution in performance
Naim's Uniti was freshened and re-released as NaimUniti 2 in 2012, with a brand new integrated amplifier (70W) the NaimUniti 2 can accommodate much wider range of loudspeakers and has the ability fill even larger rooms with a world-class sound. It also shows off an entirely new and sophisticated CD player, with an improved tray, clamping mechanism and the new Burr Brown PCM1793 DAC.
There have also been a few smaller improvements to the design and signal path. These updates were developed through intense listening assessments to combine and raise the performance levels of NaimUniti 2 even further.
- CD player - the swing out drawer is manually pulled out/ pushed back in place by hand, so there are no motors or belts to wear out.
- Multi-format tuner (DAB/FM/Internet radio) - internet radio gives you access to thousands of radio stations from all over the world - want to hear what they are listening to on Venice Classic in the Veneto? No problem, the Uniti 2 will have it playing in seconds.
- High-resolution (up to 32bit/192kHz) digital stream player for streaming music files from your computer or network attached storage drive (NAS) - all file formats are catered for including WAV, FLAC, MP3, AAC and Apple Lossless
- iPod/iPhone/iPad dock
- MP3/USB-stored audio player
- High quality Digital to analogue converter, allowing the connection of digital sound sources such as television, games console, laptop, set top box, blu-ray etc.

All you need to add is a pair of loudspeakers for a complete music system.
On the front panel is a USB input which enables you to connect your iDevice with the standard white cable and playback any track you wish via the Uniti 2. You will also find a 3.5mm headphone socket to allow private listening. The Uniti 2 comes with an infra red remote control, alternatively you can download the free nStream app from the App Store to control the unit via any iPhone, iPad or iTouch.
The nStream app is used to control the entire Naim Uniti range of streaming products - having stored your CD's to a NAS drive or better still, the UnitiServe, you can then browse the music library by Artist, Album, Track or Genre. If you select an album to play, you can then select a particular track to play now, or add to the queue, or play the entire album if you wish. There are options to shuffle or repeat the selected tracks or album - once a track or album is selected, pressing the 'info' button causes the app to download music from an online server containing lots of information about the album and artist which then become your sleeve notes, including track lists, album reviews, artists reviews, all handy sleeve note information. There are very few streamer applications that have this level of versatility, and the app is quick and responsive to commands, making use a pleasure. The ingenuity and design behind the nStream app gives the Naim Uniti 2 a great advantage over competing streaming products in the marketplace.
Moving on to the connectivity provided on the rear panel of Uniti 2, on the far right hand side we have the dual FM/ DAB antenna input, below this are four digital inputs (two coaxial and two optical) so that we can plug in our digital audio devices. To the left is a turntable input specifically designed for the Naim Stageline, this input provides both the audio connectivty required and the DC power supply for the Stageline.
Four analogue stereo inputs are provided via RCA phono sockets, and there is also a subwoofer output to add greater depth of sound, especially useful if you choose small bookshelf speakers which often lack bass depth. There is a power amplifier output which allows an interesting upgrade path to passively bi-amp your loudspeakers for a performance lift.
An ethernet socket allows wired connectivity to your home network, at the same time wireless operation is also provided for convenience. Loudspeaker connections are made using the 4mm sockets provided - Naim NAC 5 speaker cable is the ideal link to your chosen speakers. Finally we have a IEC mains power socket and on/off switch.
