Naim Uniti Atom Headphone Edition
British hi-fi specialist has launched Uniti Atom Headphone Edition - a headphone-optimized version of its multiple-award-winning Uniti Atom music streaming system, designed to be the ultimate solo listening source. Unlike traditional headphone amplifiers and DACs, which require a separate computer or streaming device, Uniti Atom Headphone Edition is a fully formed music-streaming system - just add headphones. Uniti Atom Headphone Edition features a completely new transformer design, dedicated to providing - in true Naim tradition - the very best power supply to the headphone amplification circuitry. The new discrete transistor circuit design enables Uniti Atom Headphone Edition to gain balanced headphone outputs, on both 4 pin XLR and Pentaconn, maximizing the performance of high-end headphones with those connections. The 6.3mm output is also there.
Uniti Atom Headphone Edition is fully re-engineered to offer the optimal personal listening performance. Using trickle-down technology from its flagship Statement amplifier, Naim has engineered a new discrete headphone amplifier, capable of powering even the most premium headphones - such as Focal Utopia - with ease. Naim's unique music-streaming platform serves up incredible sound quality, allowing users to escape into their own digital music collection, services such as Qobuz, TIDAL, and Spotify, and a world of Internet radio - including a curated collection of HD stations - and podcasts.
AirPlay 2 support, Chromecast built-in, and Roon Ready status add even more streaming options, while analog and digital inputs mean you can connect many other sources, too - including turntables - and a USB input supports playback from sticks/drives. Enjoy a huge range of music file formats, in resolutions up to 32bit/384kHz.
"We have designed this special edition of the mighty Uniti Atom to be the premium music streaming system for solo listening - just add headphones to escape into your own world of high-quality sound." - said Paul Neville, Naim Research & Development Director. Uniti Atom Headphone Edition can also double up as a streaming pre-amplifier, feeding active loudspeakers for an instant system, or a power amplifier driving passive speakers. Uniti Atom Headphone Edition is priced at $3,290, matching the price of the standard Uniti Atom. Info and photos by Naim Audio.
