  3. What Hi-Fi reviews Naim's new Uniti Atom Compact High-End All-in-One Player https://www.whathifi.com/naim/uniti-atom/review "Rarely does a product look and sound as good as the Uniti Atom, but here Naim has drawn big old capital S’s on Style and Substance" "In a way it would be easy to understate just how great a performer the Uniti Atom is, insofar as it’s kind-of what we have come to expect from Naim. But if you end up hearing one and fail to be excited at the prospect of ownership then, quite frankly, there’s little hope left for you." Naim's new Uniti Atom Compact High-End All-in-One Player is at Musicraft (Derby) Uniti Atom is a beautiful, compact multi-source music player that will seduce you with its amazing sound quality and outstanding feature-set. Its 40-watt integrated amplifier and high-resolution music streaming capabilities will fill your home with stunning high-fidelity sound. Atom is perfect as a high-end main system or even for use in the kitchen or study, where space is at a premium. Just add speakers. Our Naim App for iOS and Android combines all of your music sources in one place, making Uniti Atom even more appealing. Naim Uniti Atom RRP £1749 (without HDMI connection), £1849 (with HDMI connection) Naim's story begins with one man’s passion for music and weaves its way through four decades and a raft of iconic product launches to the present day. Naim Audio founder Julian Vereker MBE (1945-2000) was a racing car driver, entrepreneur and self-taught engineer with a deep passion for music. Spending his spare time listening to and recording his friends playing live in the 1960s, Julian found that playback on his system at home fell woefully short of the experience he craved. Not content with second best he decided to design his own amplifiers and loudspeakers, ignoring accepted wisdom and focusing on aspects of performance that made music burst to life. These first designs laid the foundations for a range of iconic and award-winning hi-fi products that would reach well into the next century. https://www.naimaudio.com/sites/default/files/products/downloads/files/Naim-DR_Whitepaper_May2012_FINAL.pdf A technical white paper on the Naim Audio Discrete Regulator technology You're a nobody without a Naim Under the Skin of Uniti Atom We’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to maximise the sound quality from such a compact all-in-one player. From the substantial transformer, which ensures that the power supply is always smooth and stable, to the sophisticated, hand-wired analogue and digital circuitry, every element of the design in Uniti Atom has been considered for its effect on sound quality. Naim's new Uniti Atom Compact High-End All-in-One Player is at Musicraft (Derby) Naim's new Uniti Atom Compact High-End All-in-One Player is at Musicraft (Derby) Control Your Way New and improved Naim app The new intuitive Naim App gives you effortless control over individual or multiple Uniti products. You can access all of your music, including your favourite radio stations, streaming services and playlists, or explore artist discographies and biographies. Furthermore, you can now update your system wirelessly with a single tap. The new app also allows you to control both Naim streaming products and hard-disk servers, so there’s no need for two separate apps. Glass display and intuitive remote control Uniti Atom features a full-colour 5” LCD glass display with a proximity sensor that wakes up on approach, accompanied by a bidirectional intelligent remote control that works in harmony with the unit’s volume control. Giving you complete freedom of movement, Uniti is a joy to use. Naim's new Uniti Atom Compact High-End All-in-One Player is at Musicraft (Derby) Bringing Uniti to Life Conceived and built from the ground up by our engineers and designers in Salisbury, England, Uniti remains true to our core design principles. From the finned aluminium heatsinks (inspired by our Statement flagship amplification system) to the brushed black aluminium 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. Naim's new Uniti Atom Compact High-End All-in-One Player is at Musicraft (Derby) Purposeful Materiality Uniti has been impeccably crafted with materials chosen to be in complete service of the sound. The extruded aluminium heat sinks that run down the length of the product extract heat to maximise thermal stability for increased longevity and sonic performance. The beautifully brushed aluminium top plates are CNC-fabricated for absolute precision and provide a perfect enclosure for the delicate components inside. Precision Volume Control At the heart of Uniti is an audiophile volume control which adjusts level in the analogue domain to a premium digital resolution. Its ultra-smooth rotation and illumination is inspired by our reference amplification system, Statement. The lit volume segments are reflected in the same fashion on Uniti Atom’s intuitive remote control and will adjust accordingly on the top surface ring if the volume is changed remotely. We’ve also hidden the Bluetooth antenna here for a seamless aesthetic. Naim's new Uniti Atom Compact High-End All-in-One Player is at Musicraft (Derby) Give Your Music Some Colour With the Uniti range we wanted to deliver total connection to the user’s music collection. A highly polished full-colour 5” LCD display provides rich images of album artwork and content. The screens have proximity sensors and will therefore wake up as someone approaches the machine to display music metadata, audio input information and more. There is also a selection of front-panel buttons including Favourites, Stop and Play. Naim's new Uniti Atom Compact High-End All-in-One Player is at Musicraft (Derby) Upgradeable Performance In true Naim style, the new Uniti Atom can be upgraded with one our external power amplifiers, such as the compact NAP 100. You can also add a subwoofer for deeper bass extension. And for those with extensive CD collections, you can add a Uniti Core music server to your system to store and stream thousands of albums to your Uniti player and back up all of your music in one place.

  4. What are you listening to right now?

    Rinaldo Alessandrini Le Quattro Stagioni Classical | 2003 2CD You will easily find this as the most pleasant Vivaldi's Four Seasons reproduction or performance. Amazing disc one. Disc two almost equal.

  9. What are you listening to right now?

    Well done Pete. An admirable marathon introduction to one of the ( IMO ) finest, original & important British rock bands eva. Although going by your harsh ratings for the early albums I think you may be suffering from a bit of Genesis overload. 😀 I would think they will increase once you've had a few more listens through the years...It's Gabriel & Hackett FFS ! Why no Trespass ? Would be a downer if it turned out that was your favourite 🤦‍♂️

    Bang on David.
  13. Just got my computer back so I can voice my thoughts on Sat's Bake off. (Btw, where is everyone..?) Brook, Robin and I spent most of our time in the Non Smoking Room, where we used the same 2 or 3 records in rotation to find out what we had in this ,Play Room'. Dave John spent most of their time in the main room with occasional visits to us. We had a contrasting sound to the Origin Live/Cambridge/Tag/Usher Room. Once Dave and I had persuaded John to move the Ushers in (D's idea) a bit and Dave had adjusted the TT's arm bias the Host's system was sounding tight and powerful - quite impressive. The Rock/Art Audio/SET/Triangle gave a different take - a more relaxing, emotive rendition majoring on timbre and bass definition. John commented on the 'warmth' of the sound. Basically we had my home set up and the Art Audio V1 pre/phono. It was a fraction improved by the V1 and the introduction of the Quintet (Audion) moved it up a notch from what I hear at home. Robin's vintage Rogers speakers and some modern SS Quad Elite amps were substituted later on in the pla y room and gave me an insight into the capabilities and characteristics of our SET amps and more modern drivers by comparison. Good day and thanks to John for arranging it. It was great to see everyone. Jack
  14. Washing machine- help!

    I'd go with that yeah, they cost around 3 times the price but last around 6 times longer, I'm on my second, brilliant machines.
  15. Guess the album cover

    I knew I recognised this, the bigger pic eventually nudged my memory enough, confirmed by your clue...
  16. Abrahamsen V 2.0up Vs Electro ECI3 Vs Lavardin IS

    Hi Shaun, I've had an Electro ECI5 and a Lavardin IS which were ok but a good one you should also consider is a Sugden a1al series 2, there's one here in the classifieds which I've heard and was impressed by.
  17. Phono stage advice please

    I got a battery powered one & I find it noisy even without the power supply being plugged in to the mains , does some things better than my x-lps (more expressive vocals etc) but maybe a bit thick at the bottom end in my system / room , unsurprisingly I reckon I'll have to shell out quite a bit more to improve on the MF's slightly "grey" tonality & find the sound I'm looking for 🤐
  18. Guess the album cover

    Maybe you'll get it tomorrow Chris.
