We’ve long argued the case for simplicity. Simpler hi-fi sounds better, is easier to use and ultimately more rewarding to live with. The Naim Audio app, available on iOS devices (Android app available early 2017), provides simple yet comprehensive control over both your music and the network-connected Naim Audio components used to play it. You can adjust volume, skip, pause and play tracks, scroll through album art, create playlists and store favourite radio stations to be easily accessed later.

*Owners of other Naim hard disk servers will still need to use the n-serve app.
The Naim Audio app for iOS also goes one step further than simple control, allowing you to browse your music in new and innovative ways. Integration with Rovi’s vast online music database adds layers of rich detail including biographies, discographies, reviews, similar music recommendations and more. It’s all up to you, of course: you can choose to explore those unexpected links between composers, performers and recordings, or you can simply hit ‘Play’ and leave the hard work to your system.
