Description

Naim Audio's Uniti Nova represents the high-end, connected integrated amplifier in the British manufacturer's Uniti series.

NAIM AUDIO UNITI NOVA: CASE


The case immediately reminds one of the flagship model from the Salisbury-based manufacturer, the "Statement". The craftsmanship is remarkable, both in terms of design and the choice of materials used.

The large 5’’ color LCD screen and proximity-sensor volume control contribute significantly to the high-end feel of this product.

NAIM AUDIO UNITI NOVA: REAR PANEL

The connections at the back of the device are simple, but all the essentials are there! There are 5 digital inputs (2 coaxial + 2 optical + one BNC). These allow connection to an HD TV, a Blu-ray player, or a CD player.

The Uniti Nova also offers 4 stereo analog inputs (2 RCA + 2 DIN) for connecting a turntable (via a phono preamplifier) or any other analog source. Additionally, there is a Pre-Out (RCA and DIN) for connecting a power amplifier or an active subwoofer.

Two USB type-A connectors allow you to connect a flash drive or an external hard drive, capable of storing and playing up to 20,000 tracks!

The speaker connections, as always with Naim Audio, only accept banana plugs.

NAIM AUDIO UNITI NOVA: FEATURES


It integrates an 80-watt Class AB amplifier capable of driving most Hi-Fi speakers, even those that are a bit challenging. The technology used is similar to that of the Nait amplifiers from the British manufacturer, particularly the NAP 200.

The Research & Development section has shown ingenuity in optimizing the quality of this all-in-one Uniti Nova. Inside, there is a generous toroidal transformer that ensures the power supply is always smooth and stable. A complex, hand-wired circuit houses the analog and digital circuits. It features a 4th generation 40-bit Sharp DSP. This DSP is not only powerful but also very precise.

It is paired with Naim's proprietary software, which minimizes jitter inherent to streaming.

The Nova lacks an internal hard drive and CD player, but it can be paired with a USB CD-Audio player to "rip" to a USB flash drive or hard drive.

NAIM AUDIO UNITI NOVA: CONNECTIONS


Its network connection allows it to access the Internet and download data (cover images, track titles, and numbers) for the copied disc. These details will be viewable on the LCD display and in the Naim app.

It is also possible to connect four network players for a multi-channel system. Wireless connectivity is provided by a WiFi controller and an apt-X compatible Bluetooth receiver. There are numerous streaming protocols: AirPlay, DLNA, Google Cast Audio, and Spotify Connect! And the compatible file formats are equally extensive: WAV, FLAC, DSD, ALAC, AIFF, AAC, WMA, OGG, MP3!

NAIM AUDIO UNITI NOVA: USAGE


The Naim Audio Uniti Nova comes with an intelligent bidirectional remote control that works perfectly with the device.

However, it can also be controlled via a tablet or smartphone using the new intuitive Naim Net app. This app allows easy control of one or more Uniti products. You can access all your music, including your favorite radio stations, playlists, and streaming services, and explore artists' biographies and discographies.

It is also possible to update your system wirelessly. The app allows you to control both hard disk servers and Naim streaming products, eliminating the need to manage two separate apps.

NAIM AUDIO UNITI NOVA: TEST AND LISTENING


The sound reproduction is very dynamic and physical! It retains all the "Foot Tapping" beloved by Naim Audio and its enthusiasts! The sound is muscular, detailed, and very realistic.

There is also a lot of precision and a balance that does not favor any particular frequency range. Even in large orchestral works, everything remains in its place, and loud passages are perfectly controlled without any sense of compression or distortion.

Moreover, after several hours, it becomes evident that the reproduction is particularly natural and also focused on nuance and subtlety.

Of course, the all-in-one Naim Audio Uniti Nova is not cheap, and it will require a pair of high-end Hi-Fi speakers to fully enjoy its remarkable capabilities. But if you are looking for a connected product without compromise and with outstanding audiophile performance, it is certainly the best choice!
