Product Description

Imagine everything you need from an audio system in one place: Congratulations! You've just come up with the Naim Uniti Star. With CD, Streaming and Amplification on board, this new Naim All-In-One system is well named and would prove to be the Star of any system. Just add speakers to complete your system.


The clue is in the name: this system is the star of the show. With plenty of features and the ability to play, rip, store and serve your treasured music collection, Uniti Star offers infinite possibilities. Stream your music in high-resolution, play or rip your CDs, tune in to your favourite radio stations, access a world of music with a host of streaming services and dramatically improve the audio quality of your TV or games console. Ready to go with practically any speaker set-up, Uniti Star will have you rediscovering your entire music collection with a deep, immersive sound.

Under the Skin of Uniti Star

This all-in-one player packs a heavy punch. Since Uniti Star includes a CD player alongside streaming and amplification technology, our engineers had to pay special attention to preserving thermal stability and decreasing interference between components. The custom-integrated CD drive also doubles as a ripper, making Uniti Star the most versatile all-in-one in the range.

New Uniti Range

New Uniti is the next incarnation of the Uniti family of all-in-one players. Inspired by Naim's unfaltering passion for music and enabled by 40 years of tireless innovation in engineering, they introduce the new Uniti range - the most advanced all-in-one streaming platform. Combining seamless digital technology with a rich analogue soul, you can play, stream, rip and store entire music collections in flawless high res. Ready to go with any speaker set up, Uniti gives you instant access to your music, total clarity and no compromise on quality, all within a beautiful one-box form.

The new Uniti family consists of three all-in-one players: the reference audiophile Uniti Nova, the multi-functional CD operating Uniti Star and the compact yet powerful Uniti Atom. The Uniti Core reference music server completes the range, allowing you to store and stream thousands of albums and back up all of your music in one place. With each player working independently (or together), simply add speakers to unleash your music in any room of the house. Designed to easily connect to a home Wi-Fi network, you can enjoy a world of music from virtually any source.

Internet Radio™: Access thousands of internet radio stations and save your favourite pre-sets for easy access.

UPnP™ (Universal Plug ‘n’ Play): Stream your stored music from a PC, Mac or network-attached storage in high-res ‘better than CD’ quality.

Advanced Engineering

Revolutionary New Streaming Platform: Everything about this new streaming board has been scrutinised to achieve the best possible sound quality. It’s much more powerful than its predecessor, has masses of memory, will adapt to new technology and seamlessly integrates across Naim’s existing product range, including the Mu-so wireless music system.

DSP and DAC: Uniti features an incredibly powerful 4th Generation 40-bit SHARC DSP processor. It’s so phenomenally accurate that it performs a staggering 2.7 billion 40-bit calculations per second, giving it enough power to resolve the most complex music signals with ease. The SHARC processor removes ‘jitter’ timing errors and using Naim’s RAM buffer (first used in the Naim DAC and NDS) oversamples the audio 16 times to feed the premium Burr Brown DACs, resulting in a smoother and more precise sonic performance.

A/B Amplification: Uniti uses Class A/B amplification, with technology derived from their iconic NAIT integrated amplifiers. Filter sections in Uniti Nova are made using the finest quality through hole film capacitors and discrete transistors with Uniti Atom and Uniti Star using a combination of through hole and Surface Mount Design (SMD). The power amplifier sections are now twice as fast, feature substantial transformers and run from linear power supplies.

Digitally Controlled Analogue Volume: At the heart of the Uniti all-in-one players is an audiophile volume control, adjusting level in the analogue domain to a premium digital resolution. The design is taken from the NAC-N 272 streaming preamplifier and its smooth structure is inspired by Naim's reference amplification system, Statement. Also the Bluetooth antenna has been hidden underneath the central dial for a seamless aesthetic.

State of the Art Wi-Fi: New Uniti all-in-one players feature the very latest Wi-Fi, much faster than the original Uniti range. The superior Wi-Fi processor supports 2.4 and 5GHz, alongside much better internal buffer and memory – Uniti Nova will store up to one track’s (5 minutes) worth of buffer, which results in far fewer dropouts. The Wi-Fi aerials (one on either side of the product for optimum range) are integrated behind a slot machined in the heatsink. Behind the aerials Naim have also installed a back reflector to prevent any harmful radiation from entering the unit, which further increases range, and of course, improves sound quality. This incredibly detailed patent-pending innovation provides robust connectivity without the need for an external aerial.

CD Ripping: New Uniti Star and Uniti Core deliver bit-perfect CD ripping to create accessible files that can be served to any UPnP streaming system on the network. The system uses a custom version of the EAC (Exact Audio Copy) software to extract the files which can be stored as WAV or FLAC lossless. The CD playback component on Uniti Star has been custom integrated and takes advantage of the faster-than-playback read rates, so more is buffered into RAM allowing excellent audio extraction (as accurate as possible to achieve great sound) from the CD.

Storage: Play, store and serve up to 20,000 tracks from an external USB drive (Uniti Atom, Uniti Star, Uniti Nova) or SD card (Uniti Star, Uniti Nova). Uniti Core allows you to store up to 100,000 tracks; either fit your own internal storage device or store and back up your music collection on an external Network Attached Storage or a USB-connected storage device and serve your music to any of the Uniti all-in-one players.

Revitalised Design

Conceived and built from the ground up by Naim's engineers and designers in Salisbury, England, Uniti remains true to their core design principles. The new signature illuminated volume dial, inspired by the reference Statement amplification system, is just one of the features in this beautifully engineered brushed aluminium chassis, which also boasts extruded heatsinks for thermal stability and a highly-polished full colour LCD glass display, providing you with rich imagery of your favourite album artwork. Impeccably crafted with materials chosen to be in complete service of sound, Uniti is alive with unique visual contrasts that make it a masterpiece of industrial design.

Command Your Music

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, explore artist discographies and biographies, and you can now update your system wirelessly with a single tap.

Intelligent Remote Control: All aspects of Uniti’s design were considered holistically, including the design of a new bi-directional remote control. Very early on Naim's R&D realised that passive IR remote technology was not going to deliver the targeted intimacy they wanted. A ground up solution, both from a technological and user point of view was sought and found with the bi-directional remote control. Beautiful white backlit buttons, a round volume display with segments that light up in harmony with the volume control on the player and easy pairing to any Uniti player, the remote is an intrinsic part of new Uniti.

Full Colour Display: With this range Naim wanted to deliver total connection to the user’s music collection. A highly-polished full colour 5” LCD display provides rich imagery of album artwork and content. The screens have proximity sensors and thus will wake up as someone approaches the machine to display music metadata, audio input information and more. There are also a selection of front panel buttons, including Favourites, Inputs and Play/Pause.
