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.
Uniti Star offers bit-perfect CD ripping to create files that you can either play back or serve to any UPnP-capable streamer on your home network and then can store them locally on a USB-connected device or SD card, either in WAV, or FLAC lossless format. The Uniti Star uses a unique ripping engine to ensure that the ripped data represents a faultless replica of the CD, even with badly damaged discs.
70 Watt Class A/B amplifier technology from the NAIT integrated amplifiers. Coupled with an oversized power supply, “the finest quality SMD circuitry and premium Burr Brown DACs to deliver the unique Naim pace, rhythm and timing.”
State of the art WiFi technology capable of supporting both 2.4 and 5GHz frequencies. Naim’s new patent-pending WiFi solution using antennas on either side of the product to optimise the use.
The Uniti Star utilises ”an incredible powerful, phenomenally accurate fourth-generation 40-bit SHARC DSP processor.” Along with Naim’s own software model to combat jitter (timing errors) and up-samples incoming data to ensure the best quality sound.
At the heart of Uniti is an audiophile volume control which adjusts level in the analogue domain to a premium digital resolution. The design is taken from our NAC-N 272 streaming preamplifier and its buttery-smooth rotation is inspired by our reference amplification system, Statement. We’ve also hidden the Bluetooth antenna here for a seamless aesthetic.
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.
