NaimUniti Updates to Hi-Res
Naim Audio has released a significant update for the award-winning NaimUniti.
The update will be obtainable only by taking your player(s) to your Naim Audio retailer. Owners should make an appointment to have the update applied, and the process should take less than half-an-hour. All the NaimUniti units shipped in February have included the latest code. This shows as Version 2.00.00 when checking the Uniti status screen.
The key upgrade is the support for 24-bit/96kHz (and 24/88.2) playback of WAV and FLAC files including fixed point 24- and 32-bit files as well as 32-bit floating point variants. Playback of files with a sampling rate above 48kHz is not suggested if using a wireless connection – it may work well but performance cannot be guaranteed.
An additional feature of the update is the enabling of the radio preset to work on any input, a feature requested by existing NaimUniti owners. The update also includes minor updates to improve performance and consistency of performance together with Unicode support giving greater support to Chinese and Cyrillic character sets. This can be a significant benefit when listening to Chinese, Russian, and other esoteric internet radio stations.
