British company Naim Audio introduces the Uniti Headphone Edition, an – as the name naturally suggests – all-in-one music player optimized for headphones.
Naim Audio presents a headphone-optimized version of the successful and award-winning Uniti Atom all-in-one music player, specifically aimed at an individual music experience.
Importer Latham Audio:
Unlike traditional headphone amplifiers and dacs, these often require a PC/MAC or seperate streaming source, Uniti Atom Headphone Edition brings everything together into a single system: Plug in your headphones and enjoy. Uniti Atom Headphone Edition has been completely redesigned to bring the best personal listening experience to you. The discrete construction of the headphone amplifier can drive the most demanding headphones without any problems.
Naim’s unique music streaming platform brings you impressive sound quality and easy access to your own digital music collection via the streaming services of Qobuz, Tidal and Spotify. In addition, you always have access to Internet radio including HD radio stations and Podcasts’.
Latham Audio continues:
‘Support for Airplay 2, Chromecast built-in and Roon Ready certification ensure that you are always connected to your favorite source or service. Of course, you can connect any of your existing sources via the analog and digital input(s). Via the USB connection, you can play music from USB sticks with resolutions as high as 32bit/384kHz.
Naim also applies a new toroidal transformer in the Uniti Atom Headphone Edition, fully dedicated to providing – in the well-known Naim tradition – the best power supply for the headphone amplification circuit. The newly designed discrete audio circuit provides access to a balanced headphone output, both on 4-pin XLR and Pentaconn to give you the best sound experience with headphones that have these connections.
In addition, a standard 6.3mm output is also available. “We have developed this special version of the Uniti to make the most of a solo listening experience – plug in your favorite headphones and travel to your own world of high quality sound,” says Paul Neville, Naim Research & Development Director.
Particularly noteworthy, according to Latham, is further “that Uniti Atom Headphone Edition can also be used as a streaming preamplifier and can drive active speakers – or with a separate power amplifier – passive speakers with it. The recommended retail price of Uniti Atom Headphone Edition is €2925. It is now available to listen to at your local Naim specialist.
