What Hi-Fi says...

What Hi-Fi says...

"eight years after the original Naim Uniti redefined what a one-box hi-fi system could do, Naim went back to the drawing board to completely reinvent the Uniti line-up. And in doing so, it’s made Uniti arguably the most future-proof – and most jaw-droppingly desirable – music platform money can buy"

Uniti Core Reference Hard-Disk Server

Uniti Core represents the essence of digital music. It is a seriously powerful machine that will allow you to rip your entire CD collection, store up to 100,000 tracks, serve files to Uniti all-in-one players or other Naim streamers and create a back-up for all of your music. You can also use Uniti Core as a standalone digital source – simply connect it to a digital-to-analogue converter or an amplifier with digital inputs and control playback via the Naim app. Uniti Core is a fuss-free, no-compromise solution to ripping, storing, cataloguing and playing your entire music collection.

 

Under the Skin of Uniti Core

The compact, yet powerful Uniti Core is the perfect hub for your digital music collection. Every element of this dedicated music server – from the customised operating system, the enhanced ripping engine and the linear power supply to the low-vibration aluminium casework – has been engineered to deliver consistent, reliable performance and highest sound quality. Advanced Ethernet technology means that Uniti Core simply will not buckle under stress, enabling UPnP™ players on the network or a connected DAC to perform at their best.

CD Ripping

CD Ripping

Uniti Core uses a unique ripping engine to ensure that the extracted data represents a flawless, bit-perfect copy of the CD. Simply insert your CD and wait a minute or two. Uniti Core will then automatically catalogue your ripped music using Rovi’s vast online database, allowing you to search by title, artist, genre, track or composer via the Naim app. You’ll never lose a CD again.

Music Storage & Back up

Music Storage & Back up

Uniti Core gives complete flexibility, however you wish to store and play your music. 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. While Uniti Core is ideal for ripping CDs, it also features a folder for downloads and rips made to other devices, giving you a single store for your entire music collection. Plus, Uniti Core will remind you to back up your collection, so you’ll never have to worry about losing your precious tracks.

Bringing Uniti to Life

Bringing Uniti to Life

Conceived and built from the ground up by their engineers and designers in Salisbury, England, Uniti remains true to their core design principles. From the finned aluminum heatsinks (inspired by their Statement flagship amplification system) to the brushed black aluminum casing, the new illuminated signature volume control and the beautifully lit base – every minute detail has been considered to deliver a beautiful aesthetic packed with features and technology whilst achieving reference-level sound quality. Uniti is a true masterpiece of industrial design.

Control Your Way

Control Your Way

The new intuitive Naim app gives you effortless control over individual or multiple Uniti products.

The new app also allows you to control Uniti Core and Naim streaming products.
