NAIM UNITILITE REVIEWS

This is a player capable of giving a big, dramatic and exciting account of discs, while still showing excellent refinement in the way it keeps basslines good’n’tight while getting just the right mix of sting and sweetness in the treble. 

The UnitiLite will deliver a lot of what a Naim Uniti 2 will, and do so while still leaving enough change from the Uniti2’s price-tag to buy a very decent pair of speakers indeed. 

with Simon Keenlyside and Malcolm Martineau’s War Songs set, a 2012 Gramophone Award-winner, the Naim does a fine job of presenting both Keenlyside’s rich voice and pianist Martineau’s sympathetic accompaniment, placing both in an entirely realistic accoustic while at the same time having more than enough power in reserve to deliver the dynamics of both voice and instrument.

The Naim is just as capable at unravelling large scale musical pieces, as is clear when playing, for example, the Allegretto second movement of Beethoven’s 7th from the excellent set of symphonies by Daniel Barenboim and his young West-Eastern Divan Orchestra: the sound has superb detail in the hushed opening of the movement, and holds its composure beautifully as it builds to its climax.

WHAT HI FI?

.

This is one of the best all-in-one system I have encountered under £2000 – and over the last two years, I have tried a great many of them. As a combination of performance, features and user experience, it is absolutely and unequivocally the best device of its type that you can buy today.

The combination of features, functionality and performance this British built unit offers is exceptional and has to be seen as impressive value.

The Naim’s presentation is exceptionally engaging 

The more time I spent with the Naim, the clearer it became that this isn’t simply a great all in one system, but a fantastic piece of hi-fi full stop.

What is equally impressive is the experience of using the Naim day to day. Historically, when you chose British hi-fi, you tacitly accepted that you did without some bells and whistles in the pursuit of sound quality. In the case of the UnitiLite, when used with n-Stream, I can safely say that the experience is as slick and cohesive as any product I have encountered.

NAIM UNITILITE

UnitiLite takes the feature set of the award-winning NaimUniti, including high-resolution music streaming (up to 32bit/192kHz), CD playback, internet radio and iPod/iPhone/MP3 playback and distils it into an elegant, sleek enclosure. All you need to add is a pair of speakers to create an accessible all-in-one system that can put music at the centre of your life.

Heavyweight sound

Don’t be fooled by the size of the UnitiLite. Behind its slimline fascia it incorporates several technologies and techniques used in high-end Naim electronics that allow it to deliver music with real energy and clarity. Its DAC chip is a close relative of the device employed in the high-end NDX streamer and its power amplifier design is informed by the classic techniques fundamental to the Naim sound. With 50W of power per channel, UnitiLite is more than capable of filling most rooms with the signature toe-tapping, spine tingling sound on which we’ve built our reputation.

Rediscover your music

Along with the conventional remote handset and front panel control, the Naim n-Stream app can provide comprehensive hand-held control of the UnitiLite from your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. As well as providing intuitive control functions like playlist creation, album browsing and input selection, n-Stream lets you fully explore your music with expanded music information powered by Rovi’s vast online music database.
