Milan Top Audio Show September 13, 2012. Naim today announced the new UnitiLite all-in-one player. The UnitiLite is a slimline version of Naim’s original award-winning NaimUniti all-in-one player and is the latest addition to Naim’s Uniti range of all-in-one audio products. UnitiLite comprises a CD player, MP3/iPod and USB memory stick playback, a digital-to-analogue converter, high-resolution 32bit/192kHz network streaming and an integrated 50W amplifier in one sleek enclosure.
Like Naim’s other streaming devices, the UnitiLite can be ethernet or Wi-Fi network connected and is UPnP-enabled to stream audio stored on the home network and access internet radio (an optional FM/DAB module is also available).
UnitiLite will be available in mid-October at a suggested retail price of £1650 or £1895 including the optional FM/DAB radio.
UnitiLite is powerful enough to deliver music at realistic levels in most rooms and is capable of delivering superb sound quality whether the source is CD, radio, internet radio, iPod Touch or streamed music from a computer or network storage (NAS).
The system is easy to use and control using the supplied remote control, or the free to download n‑Stream app from the iTunes store. The latest improvements to the app have added full playlist control and wonderful graphical information and background information on the music streamed.
Information such as biographies, discographies, album reviews and much more are available at the touch of a button or a swipe of the finger.
