Naim Uniti Atom All-In-One Audio System | Review

By | January 20th, 2019|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , |

“All in one, and one for all!” Wait, what? Ha! You’ve just been introduced to my new tagline for Naim Audio’s nifty combined audio system, the Uniti Atom. It’s an all-in-one audio system, as in high-end meets lifestyle. As in “I want this thing, and so should everyone else.”

So let me explain…

I’ve dealt with combined audio systems before. I suppose I’m a bit biased against them, but for no good reason. Audiophile purist snobbery perhaps? Maybe my issues hearken back to my youth, when brick and mortar department stores like Montgomery Ward or J.… Read the full article

Command Performance AV; Focal, Naim, EAT – CAF 2018

By | November 20th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , , , |

Focal

This was by far my favourite budget system of Capital Audiofest 2018. If you consider it’s a complete system which includes Focal and Naim and clocks in at just a hair under $18K, if you don’t count in the component rack and audio cables.

When so much of the audio show can be a rattling cage full of systems with most individual components costing $20K alone, to see a more down to earth budgeted system at a show, is more than a breath of fresh air.Read the full article

Naim Mu-so Goes Gold

By | September 2nd, 2018|Categories: AV Hub|

Naim Audio’s award-winning Mu-so wireless speaker is now available in a ‘Special Edition’ champagne finish.

Naim Audio’s Group Design Director, Simon Matthews, said: ‘Champagne finishing has been selected as it ideally represents both a celebration of the continuing success of the Mu-so family but also because it delivers a unique appearance that oozes sophistication and exclusivity. It offers a highly desirable and unique aesthetic that will appeal to those music lovers who do not settle for second best when it comes to luxury in the home.’

The Naim Mu-so has six internal amplifiers that drive a speaker array comprised of two elliptical bass drivers, two circular midrange drivers and two soft-dome tweeters, all of which are front-firing.… Read the full article

Naim Uniti Nova

Naim Uniti Nova

Although Naim has been making audio gear since 1973, it is not your typical stodgy old-school hi-fi firm. Instead, it is one of those fleet-footed audio manufacturers whose products have continued to evolve over the years. Sure, it still makes separate preamps and power amplifiers as well as DACs (how quaint), but Naim’s latest components are one-box units far less demanding of room acreage. The Uniti Nova ($7495) is Naim’s highest-priced and most feature-laden single-box audio system. Add loudspeakers, and your stereo is almost complete.… Read the full article

Naim ND 555 Network Player has North American debut at invite-only event

By | July 19th, 2018|Categories: Audiostream|

While I’m unsure how many CD enthusiasts have lobbied Naim for the return of the CD 555, the company knows a great-looking design when they make one and have kept those iconic CD 555 lines for their latest 500-series product: the ND 555 Network Player, which was previewed back in April overseas along with the NDX 2 and ND5 XS 2 players.

Wheel love with the Naim Uniti Atom

By | July 13th, 2018|Categories: DAR|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

Naim review cliche #1: to headline the article with the pun-heavy “What’s in a Naim?”. It’s as tired as David Byrne features topped with “Still Making Sense”; a well-worn wink at the ex-Talking Head frontman’s most well-known eighties release (Stop Making Sense).

I’m as guilty as the next guy, headlining my coverage of the Naim Uniti Atom and Nova’s 2016 US debut with – you guessed it – “What’s in a Naim?”. Never again (is what I swore the time before).… Read the full article

Wheeling in the years with the Naim Mu-so

By | July 11th, 2018|Categories: DAR|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Mainstreamers visiting their local big Apple or high-end department store might see Naim’s Mu-so as a luxury (mains-powered) Bluetooth speaker. As one might expect at €1199, it stomps all over its smaller battery-powered brethren. The KEF Muo (US$350) is one of the best of the portable Bluetooth bunch but sat next to the Naim long box the Muo is outclassed in every respect. The Mu-so delivers oodles of dynamic slam to sound larger and more impactful than its diminutive rival.

The Mu-so also sounds larger than its letterbox profile might suggest.… Read the full article

Atomic power

UK-based Naim Audio has been famous for its amplification since its first products back in the early 1970s. Three decades later Naim was also quick to recognise the future of file-based and streaming music, and most recently it has enjoyed great success with its Mu-so and Mu-so Qb wireless speakers, acclaimed for both their sound and their styling.… Read the full article
