Naim Uniti 2 with Bluetooth - Audio T Recommends

  • Independent review by Audio T
Everything audio in one place: integrated amplifier, CD player, DAB/FM tuner, internet radio, iPod, iPhone and iPad dock, digital-to-analogue converter and high-resolution 24bit/192kHZ capable network stream player. Now updated to include Bluetooth (aptX) and Spotify Connect Music Streaming service.

Naim Uniti was revitalised and relaunched as Naim Uniti 2 in 2012 and now in 2014 they have updated it to include Bluetooth connection to enable simple streaming from just about any mobile device and included the Spotify Connect online Music Streaming service.

The 70W integrated amplifier (Original Uniti 50W) remains enabling the Naim Uniti 2 to accommodate a wide range of loudspeakers and fill even larger rooms with world class sound. It also retains the new CD player section, with improved tray, clamping mechanism and the new Burr Brown PCM1793 DAC.

Several small improvements to the design and signal path, developed through intensive listening tests, combine to raise the overall performance levels of Naim Uniti 2 still further. It also has the larger front panel display window of its big brother the SuperUniti.

When I first listened to the upgraded Uniti 2 in 2012 I was amazed how it had moved on from original Uniti. On many an occasion when I was working in a branch we remarked how musical it sounds to the degree that we could not think of a better combination of CD/Tuner/Streamer and amplifier for the same budget. Bluetooth (aptX) connectivity and access to Spotify simply reinforce that view in 2014.

A fine example of a product that exceeds the sum of all its a mile!
