With more music listening taking place in the home than ever before, Naim’s Uniti Atom Headphone Edition is designed to be the ultimate solo listening source.
This new headphone optimsed version of Naim’s successful Uniti Atom music streaming system is a fully formed music streaming system and eschews any requirement for additional DACs or streaming devices, requiring just your eager ears and a pair of headphones.
The Uniti Atom Headphone Edition is fully re-engineered using trickle-down technology from Naim’s flagship Statement amplifier, resulting in a new discrete headphone amplifier capable of powering most premium headphones – such as the Focal Clear MG – with ease. Moreover, a completely new transformer design helps deliver the best power supply to the headphone amplification circuitry and enables the device to feature balanced headphone outputs, on both 4 pin XLR and Pentaconn, alongside the traditional 6.35mm jack.
Utilising Naim’s unique music streaming platform allows access to a listener’s own digital music library plus music services such as Qobuz, TIDAL and Spotify, alongside Internet Radio offerings which includes a curated collection of HD stations, and podcasts.
In addition, AirPlay 2 support, Chromecast built-in and Roon Ready status add even more streaming options while the 2x optical S/PDIF, coaxial RCA, USB and stereo RCA pair add plenty of digital and analogue input options with a wide range of file formats supported up to 32bit/384kHz.
Control comes courtesy of the Naim app, included remote control or via the tactile volume dial and full-colour display (that can be switched off when you listen in the dark).
Paul Neville, Naim Research & Development Director, commented, “We have designed this special edition of the mighty Uniti Atom to be the premium music streaming system for solo listening – just add headphones to escape into your own world of high-quality sound.”
However, the focus on solo headphone listening is not to suggest that the Uniti Atom Headphone Edition shouldn't be used in any other way - simply adding a power amp and speakers, or active speakers will turn the device into a fully featured streaming pre-amplifier.
The Naim Uniti Atom Headphone Edition is available now, with a suggested retail price of £2399/$3290/€2899, matching the SRP of the standard Uniti Atom.
