Naim Uniti Star CD Player / Ripper/ DAC / Network amp
Sensational new compact CD / Ripper / streamer / amp - with Bluetooth, Spotify and Tidal !

Whichever way you look at it (design, technology, performance, build quality, connectivity) the new Naim Uniti models set the benchmark in their class, but it is the Uniti Star that many people are predicting to be the outstanding model in the range. An all in one CD player, ripper, server, DAC and amp is right ‘on trend’ for what most customers want, but it is the way the Uniti Star delivers this package that sets it apart from the competition.

The first thing to be clear on is that although the Star looks like a Uniti Core plus a Uniti Atom put together into one enclosure, that is not in fact the case, for two main reasons. Firstly, the Core won’t play a CD without first having ripped it to its internal hard drive, whereas the Star has no internal hard drive, so it is a genuine CD player, that can also rip music to an SD card or USB storage device. And secondly, the Star’s amp pumps out 70 Watts into 8 ohms, whereas the Atom’s output is nearly half that, at 40 watts into 8 ohms. The star also boasts an extra optical input and an HDMI input compared to the Atom, but that is of less relevance to audiophiles because it is the first two facts (CD Player and Power) that hint at the main difference between Atom and Star – performance. The Atom is very good at what it does, but the Star is even better sonically, without losing any of the excellent connectivity and design features that make the Atom so instantly attractive. So, as well as boasting a dedicated CD player and more power, the Star also 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 a preamp output, giving customers the option of upgrading, by adding on a high performance power amp.

The Star has just about everything the ‘one box’ customer could ever desire, but with the sort of performance you can’t usually get from an ‘all in one’ design. So, if you want the sort of performance you’d get from Naim separates (eg CD5Si + Nait XS) but all in one box, with an excellent CD ripper, streamer and DAC thrown in for good measure, then this is the one for you! As such, the Star does indeed look like it will be the choice of many, because it fulfils the needs of the ‘modern audiophile’, in one outstanding package.

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!
