"...through Naim's array of state-of-the-art systems, you can enjoy true high-fidelity sound and the choice and convenience that inspired the digital revolution."What Hi-Fi?
Embracing the world of music streaming has never been easier. Our new range of digital separates and all-in-one systems combine the convenience and power of the digital revolution with the foot-tapping, spine-tingling musical performance on which we’ve built our reputation.
We handle every step of the streaming journey with solutions to rip, catalogue, store, back up, control and play your music, so you can sit back and let listening take centre stage.
The convenience of having your entire CD collection available at the touch of a button is one of the key advantages of a streaming system. Your existing collection, as well as CDs you buy in the future, can easily be made available to stream by ripping' them to make digital copies. For maximum simplicity, you can choose a Naim device that can rip and store your CDs. The HDX and UnitiServe can both make bit-perfect copies of your music using Naim's custom-designed ripping engine, storing music either to their internal 2TB hard drives or to a networkattached storage (NAS) drive.
Having thousands of songs at your disposal requires organisation, and Naim's custom-designed Extended Music Database takes care of that for you. The Naim HDX or UnitiServe will categorise every track they rip by name, artist, composer and a host of other searchable criteria, and will even find album artwork to display. You can install Naim's Desktop Client on your computer to search, edit and manage stored music over your home network.
For those short on space, the Naim HDX and UnitiServe will store as well as rip your music, with 2TB of space allowing you to store up to 2400 albums in hi-resolution uncompressed audio. Prefer to keep your music on a NAS drive? Naim's HDX and UnitiServe hard disk players are also available in solid state variants, which rip straight to NAS. And if you wish to listen to your music elsewhere in the home, Naim's streaming players will stream direct from network devices, whether it's a Naim server or a NAS drive. Whether you store your music internally on a Naim machine with integrated storage, externally using a NAS drive, or even a combination of the two, your streaming experience will remain seamless.
It's always important to keep your music library backed up, and luckily Naim makes this potentially difficult and lengthy process easy and pain-free. Naim hard disk players like the UnitiServe and HDX offer the option to back up your tracks automatically, by creating duplicate versions of your ripped tracks and storing them on an allocated storage device, such as a connected NAS drive. This can also be used as overflow storage for audiophiles who fill up the HDX and UnitiServe's built-in 2TB hard drive, with the content streamable by any of Naim's network music players or all-in-ones.
Naim's free remote apps for iOS devices put the ability to browse and play your music in the palm of your hand. The Naim n-Stream app works with Naim's range of network players and all-in-one systems, allowing you to flick through album artwork, select music and build playlists. Alternatively, if you have a Naim hard disk player/server, the free n-Serve app will put you in charge of all your stored tunes.
Whether you prefer the audiophile performance of separates or the convenience of an all-in-one system, Naim has a streaming solution for you. Choose from Naim's NDS, NDX, or ND5 XS network players with matching Naim amplification or the new NAC-N 172 XS streaming preamplifier. Alternatively a SuperUniti, new NaimUniti 2, new UnitiLite or UnitiQute will provide all-in-one convenience alongside Naim quality sound. They all support a range of file formats too, including hi-res audio up to 32bit/192kHz.
