Class A/B Amplification
Uniti Star uses a powerful 70-watt Class A/B amplifier with technology taken from Naim's iconic NAIT integrated amps. They've also installed the largest power supply possible as well as the finest quality SMD circuitry to deliver the unique Naim pace rhythm and timing.
A Closer Look at Uniti's Digital Brain
The Uniti Nova features an incredibly powerful, phenomenally accurate fourth-generation 40-bit SHARC DSP processor. This DSP chip 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.
State of the Art Wi-Fi
New Uniti all-in-one players include the very latest Wi-Fi technology. The superior Wi-Fi processor supports 2.4 and 5GHz, alongside a much better internal buffer and memory - Uniti Nova will store up to five minutes' worth of data, 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 into the heat sink, a patent-pending system that provides robust connectivity without the need for an external aerial.
CD Ripping and Storage
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. Uniti Star uses a unique ripping engine to ensure that the ripped data represents a faultless replica of the CD, even with damaged discs.
Revolutionary New Streaming Platform
Uniti has been developed with a completely new, extremely powerful and versatile streaming board. This innovative new platform is much more powerful than its predecessor, has masses of memory, will adapt to new technology effortlessly and seamlessly integrates with other network-connected Naim systems, including the Mu-so wireless music system.
