Uniti Core

Industry-Reference Hard-Disk Server

Uniti Core represents the essence of digital music. It is a seriously powerful machine that will allow you to rip your entire CD collection, store up to 100,000 tracks, serve files to Uniti all-in-one players or other Naim streamers and create a back-up for all of your music. You can also use Uniti Core as a standalone digital source – simply connect it to a digital-to-analogue converter or an amplifier with digital inputs and control playback via the Naim app. Uniti Core is a fuss-free, no-compromise solution to ripping, storing, cataloguing and playing your entire music collection.

Uniti Core will be available from our network of specialist retailers in November. Sign up to be the first to discover more.

Your Music Collection Reimagined

Uniti Core offers infinite possibilities, however you want to listen to your music.

  • UPnP (Universal Plug ‘n’ Play)

    Serve your music to as many as 12 Uniti all-in-one players or other Naim streamers with up to 32 bits/384 kHz. Uniti Core will scan the network for shared audio files, including your iTunes library.

  • CD Ripping

    Create bit-perfect copies of your CDs, store them internally or to a USB-connected storage device and play them back via Uniti Core (external DAC or digital-input amplifier required).

  • Digital Output

    Connect your external DAC or digital-input amplifier to the precisely timed, re-clocked transformer-isolated S/PDIF output on the rear panel.

  • Storage and Back up

    You can choose to fit an HDD (Hard-Disk Drive) or SSD (Solid-State Drive) with a capacity of up to 8 TB – enough space for 100,000 tracks. Alternatively, you can connect an external NAS (Network-Attached Storage) or a USB-connected storage device. NAS and USB storage can also be used as back-up locations.

  • File Formats

    Supports a broad range of music formats including WAV, FLAC, DSD, Apple Lossless, AIFF, AAC, Windows Media-formatted files, Ogg Vorbis and MP3.

  • Wireless Updates

    Update your system at the touch of a button via the Naim app.

Uniti System

Whatever the source, our revolutionary new Uniti players combine seamless digital technology with analogue soul for a sound that’s unmistakably Naim. Play, stream, rip and store entire music collections in flawless high-resolution. Then use our custom-designed software to bring out every note of your music with true high-fidelity sound. New Uniti also gives you the option to sync up to six Uniti systems or other Naim streamers and play music from any source in multiple rooms simultaneously. Or play different music in every room.

Under the Skin of Uniti Core

The compact, yet powerful Uniti Core is the perfect hub for your digital music collection. Every element of this dedicated music server – from the customised operating system, the enhanced ripping engine and the linear power supply to the low-vibration aluminium casework – has been engineered to deliver consistent, reliable performance and highest sound quality. Advanced Ethernet technology means that Uniti Core simply will not buckle under stress, enabling UPnP™ players on the network or a connected DAC to perform at their best.

Uniti Core Engineering
  • CD Ripping

    Uniti Core uses a unique ripping engine to ensure that the extracted data represents a flawless, bit-perfect copy of the CD. Simply insert your CD and wait a minute or two. Uniti Core will then automatically catalogue your ripped music using Rovi’s vast online database, allowing you to search by title, artist, genre, track or composer via the Naim app. You’ll never lose a CD again.

  • Music Storage and Back up

    Uniti Core gives complete flexibility, however you wish to store and play your music. Choose to fit an HDD (Hard-Disk Drive) or SSD (Solid-State Drive) with a capacity of up to 8 TB – enough space for 100,000 tracks. While Uniti Core is ideal for ripping CDs, it also features a folder for downloads and rips made to other devices, giving you a single store for your entire music collection. Plus, Uniti Core will remind you to back up your collection, so you’ll never have to worry about losing your precious tracks.

  • Music Serving

    Uniti Core allows you to serve as many as 12 independent music streams to Uniti all-in-one players or other UPnPTM-capable streamers with up to 32 bits/384 kHz.

  • Power Supply

    The compact Uniti Core houses a sophisticated power supply with a custom-made toroidal transformer. This new linear power supply is designed to minimise noise and provide you with a much higher sound quality.

Control Your Way

The new intuitive Naim app gives you effortless control over individual or multiple Uniti products. You can access all of your music, including ripped CDs and playlists, or explore artist discographies and biographies. Furthermore, you can now update your system with a single tap. The new app also allows you to control both hard-disk servers and Naim streaming products, so there’s no need for two separate apps.

Bringing Uniti to Life

Conceived and built from the ground up by our engineers and designers in Salisbury, England, Uniti remains true to our core design principles. From the finned aluminum heatsinks (inspired by our Statement flagship amplification system) to the brushed black aluminum casing, the new illuminated signature volume control and the beautifully lit base – every minute detail has been considered to deliver a beautiful aesthetic packed with features and technology whilst achieving reference-level sound quality. Uniti is a true masterpiece of industrial design.
