Product Description

The Naim UnitiServe (available on 0% finance) is a compact, slot-loading, CD ripping, hard disk music player and server based on the multi-award-winning Naim HDX.

It takes the fundamentals of the HDX; a massive internal hard disk drive, Naim bit-perfect ripping, Ethernet connection, UPnPTM server, StreamNet technology and local digital outputs, and combines them with a set of features perfectly suited to music in the home of today, and tomorrow.

Unrivalled Expertise

Decades of expertise is at the heart of the UnitiServe. It extracts data from CDs using unique, in-house developed techniques and algorithms to ensure that ripped data represents a faultless replica of the CD. The data is stored on a 2TB hard disk with space for up to 2400 CDs, or on an external Network Attached Storage (NAS) with potential for space that can easily outpace your music collection. UnitiServe stores artwork, track titles, artists, performers, composers for all ripped CDs, regardless of their storage location, automatically downloaded. The Naim Extended Music Database format means music can be found easily by searching for any stored parameter. You'll never lose track of a CD again.

There’s far more to UnitiServe than bit-perfect CD ripping and storage. Its external power supply minimises mains noise and incorporates a decoupled hard-disk assembly that minimises noise and any possibility of disturbance from external vibration. Digital signal management within the UnitiServe is based on techniques developed for the Naim HDX and the digital outputs on the CD5 XS and CDX2 CD players.

For All Music Lovers

A system can grow around UnitiServe. It can replay ripped CDs into a digital input-equipped amplifier, such as the SUPERNAIT or a digital to analogue converter like Naim's DAC, with all the engaging Naim musical insight, musical performance and clarity you would expect. Tthe UnitiServe can operate as a UPnPTM server to stream to any UPnPTM playback device over a network, such as NaimUniti or UnitiQute, to create a simple multi-room system. For those wanting sound quality at the centre of whole-home control, UnitiServe is StreamNet-enabled and can function as the heart of a sophisticated IP-based NaimNet* multi-room system. UnitiServe can be controlled by an iPhone or iPod touch device running a dedicated Naim app, a touch screen, or a computer anywhere on the home network either a web browser or the Naim Desktop Client.

CD Liberation

UnitiServe is not limited to CD or internal storage. It can play from USB and will scan the network for music stored on NAS drives or network shares in WAV, AIFF, FLAC, ALAC, OGG Vorbis, AAC, WMA and MP3 formats at up to 24bit/192kHz resolution. A variant of the UnitiServe - the UnitiServe-SSD is also available. The UnitiServe-SSD has no internal hard-disk storage and is intended for use in network systems where ripped data is stored exclusively on NAS drives. The UnitiServe lets you automatically create duplicates of your ripped music and save them to an allocated storage device. This makes backing up your music simple and pain-free.
