Naim Uniti Nova DAC / Network amp
Naim's champagne super Nova - the ultimate audiophile 'all in one'!

Here's the thing. If you buy a top end streamer and subscribe to a music provider like Tidal, then you will be able to stream any track from pretty much any album ever recorded in seconds, without moving from the sofa so (drum roll) it is quite possible you will never play a CD disc again. If that is the case, then what's the point of paying for a CD player?

That question is particularly relevant for an 'all in one' design, where the inclusion of a CD mechanism takes up valuable space that could otherwise be used to spatially separate individual circuit boards, to maximise performance. CD drives are also a source of electromagnetic radiation and RF, which are the last thing you want in close proximity to sensitive analogue preamp components. So the Nova has no CD player and is a much better 'all in one' as a result, because the space released is utilised to house a massive power supply (the biggest in the Uniti range) and to permit the use of the highest quality discrete audiophile components, arranged within discrete circuitry. This is far more akin to what is found in Naim's traditional 'separates' models, compared to the other Uniti products. The result is a one box solution that really can fool you into thinking you are listening to a multi-box separates system.

On top of true separates performance, you also get all the facilities, connectivity and ease of use that define the new Uniti range, so the Nova gives you twin USB inputs (one of which will take a big external USB hard drive) a gorgeous new five inch glass colour LCD display (to show main functions, plus album artwork etc) complete with proximity sensor, plus state of the art 40-bit SHARC DSP processing, upgraded Wi-Fi performance, a new premium Burr Brown DAC, hidden aerials and a greatly improved free control App. That's on top of all the 'must have' features like Bluetooth apt-X, plus Apple AirPlay, plus Spotify Connect, plus Tidal, plus Google Cast, plus Internet Radio, plus 4 digital inputs (2 x optical + 2 x coax), plus two analogue inputs, plus HDMI ARC, plus a preamp output, giving customers the option of upgrading, by adding on a high performance Naim power amp.

And of course, if you do need to be able to play CDs (perhaps because you have specific music tastes that are not catered for on streaming sites) then you can either plug your old CD player into the Nova (either digitally or via its analogue input) or you could invest in a Naim Uniti Core, which will rip your favourite CDs onto its internal hard drive, from where they can be streamed digitally into the Nova, all controlled from your armchair, (just like Tidal, but using your own CDs) It also goes without saying that for the 'ultimate' audiophile experience you can still plug your good old turntable into the 21st Century Nova (phono pre-amp required).

However you configure it and whatever you play on it, the Nova will reward you with a level of performance that has never been achievable from a one box solution before. So if you want to 'have your one box cake and eat it', look no further, because this is the very best you can buy!

All of which would be great, except for an unexpected ‘fly in the chardonnay', which is that shortly after the provisional launch details (including pricing) of the new Uniti range were announced by Naim, Sterling crashed and (since many of Uniti’s components come from abroad) the company had no option but to hurriedly schedule a 10% price rise for the Jan 2017. Not great news, because the new Uniti models won’t actually be available in the shops until AFTER that date, so therefore should carry the new, higher price tag. However, there is a (temporary) silver lining to this particular cloud, because Naim have said that they will honour the initial pre increase launch price for all customers who order new Uniti models BEFORE the increase takes effect, as a goodwill gesture in this difficult situation. So get your skates on, give us a £50 deposit and you'll be one of the first in the country to own this amazing new product, plus you'll have got it at the ‘old’ price and saved yourself a load of cash into the bargain!
