NAIM Uniti Nova (unpacking device)
The Uniti Nova up close
Even its name refers to the innovative technology that gives the Uniti Nova its special position in the series. Thus, in addition to high-quality discrete components, a massive toroidal transformer ensures the highest sound quality.
Add to that optimized circuit layouts , our new signature volume control, multiple inputs and a powerful 80-watt power amp – features that set the Uniti Nova a new benchmark for all-in-one players.
New, improved Naim app
The intuitive new Naim app puts you in control of all Uniti products in your home. Access favorite radio stations, streaming services, and playlists, as well as discographies and other artist info. Plus, you can update your entire system with a single tap thanks to over-the-air updates. The new app controls both our streaming products and the Uniti Core music server, so you no longer need separate apps.
Glass display and intuitive remote control
The Uniti Nova features a large color LCD display with glass front that comes to life as soon as your hand approaches the device. For added flexibility, the smart remote control bi-directionally syncs with the volume control on your all-in-one player. This makes the Uniti Nova comfortable to use in any position.

Rip and store your entire music collection in pristine, high-resolution quality and play back sound after sound with the highest fidelity. You can also play music from any source in absolute sync on up to six Uniti players or other Naim streaming products. Or choose a separate program for each room.
Uniti comes to life
Our engineers and designers in Salisbury, England, have completely redesigned the Uniti series based on our fundamental principles. From the finned heat sinks (inspired by the Statement Series reference power amplifiers) to the black brushed aluminum Gehäuse to the signature volume control and elegantly illuminated acrylic base, every detail contributes to the products’ delightful aesthetic. Added to this are comprehensive functionality and state-of-the-art technology, making the series a masterpiece of product design.
Conscious choice of materials
The products of the Uniti series are made of high quality materials, the selection of which is always subject to sound criteria. The extruded aluminum heat sinks on both sides of the Gehäuseensure thermal stability for durability and the highest sound quality. The brushed aluminum top plates are CNC machined with the highest precision and form a perfect Gehäuse for the delicate components inside.
Precise volume control
A key component of Uniti’s all-in-one players is the high-quality analog volume control, which is driven by a precise digital actuation system. The technology behind the control comes from the NAC-N 272 streaming preamp, while the extremely smooth rotary element was inspired by our statement reference preamp. We also placed the Bluetooth antenna in the volume control – a simple and elegant solution.
Add more color to your music
With the Uniti series, we want to bring you closer to your music in every way, such as the classy LCD color display. It comes to life as soon as your hand approaches the device, and then displays covers, available sources, and other information. The front also features buttons like favorites selection and play/pause.
