Uniti playing up.

Geoff W ·
A couple of days ago, my 2012 Series 1 Uniti began switching itself on and off, every 15 seconds or so - a bit disconcerting, I thought. I tried switching it off and on, which seemed to sort it, but then it continued. So then, last night I tried a factory reset, which seems to have worked - so far. So my question is, is the unit paused on the cusp of failing, or do these things happen occasionally? Presumably, iif it starts doing it again it will need sending back, via my dealer?

I suspect you're right - a trip home will have it sorted, and hopefully it's something simple.

I'd be happier to return it home, if it weren't for all the rumours about long delays, but, que sera, sera. Hopefully that won't be necessary for some time.

I can't really give you advice, sorry. But I am in a very similar situation as you. I had the Qute/NAP100 combo, and a Audiolab CD player which I use as a transport. Even though most of my discs have been ripped to a NAS drive, I still find it enjoyable to take the CD out of the case, and put it into the player. Then take the case back to the sofa and enjoy the album, while looking at the artwork, bit of nostalgia I guess. This December I ordered the Atom to replace my Qute/NAP. But am now...

Thanks for the comment. It still seems a whole lot easier putting on a CD rather than digging through an alphabetical list on the iPad to find inspiration, but with the streaming I can get it to a Muso in my study without shifting my arse from the chair! I did think of a 2nd hand UnitiServe as a CD transport - I don't really need the ripper and hard drive, but it would at least match the Qute/100 (but not your Atom!) Did you try the Atom with the NAP100? Again doesn't match, but should have...

Hey Paul. No, the Atom is not available yet, so I don't think anyone has tried/heard it with an external power amp. I've sold my NAP100 in hopes that the Atom will have enough power on it's own. You are also correct, the two would not look quite right together. Although NAIM does state the NAP100 being an upgrade for the Atom. The NAP100 was meant to be a partner to the DAC V1, but many used it with the Qute as it matched very well. But I doubt that NAIM will make a new version of the NAP100...

Uniti Atom Remote does not pair

I am up amNd runnng with Uniti Atom througjh iOS app. But not able to pair the Remote. Every timeI power it on it takes me to the home screen.

Thanks Richard. Aprreciate it. BTW, the remote does spin in its display while I hold the home button and keep it close to atom. But even after that the remote does not function - like if I press the power button on remote it does not make atom go to standby mode. Regards, sourav

Re: Uniti Atom Remote does not pair

Phil Harris ·
Hi Sourav, When you press and hold the home button on the remote do you get the LEDs that make up the volume ring on the remote "circling"? If you don't then the remote isn't going into pairing mode. To pair the remote press and hold the home button on the remote until the volume ring "circles" and then hold the remote against the front panel of the Uniti (it's the same for Atom / Star / Nova). If that doesn't work for you then can you let me know which part doesn't work for you. Best Phil ...

Hi Phil, Thanks for the response. For me, the remote starts pairing almost immediately I press and hold the home button as I see the volime ring starts circling.. Next I hold the remote against the front panel. It continues circling for few more seconds and then the light disappears.

Hi All, If you have already had your unit working and the remote is no longer pairing with your unit then the following sequence is the one that I have had confirmed as being correct... Ensure that the Atom / Nova proximity sensor isn’t being triggered (volume indication LED ring on volume control is not illuminated). Holding the remote away from the unit press and hold the “Home” button until the volume ring on the remote “circles”. Once the volume indicator is circling release the home...

Uniti Atom, Star and Nova ... ADC?

Eloise ·
Okay ... its widely known that the new Unit Atom, Star and Nova incorporate an ADC. Do we know / have any confirmation from Naim as to the purpose of this ADC? Is everything you listen to locally going through a analogue to digital then back to analogue conversion; or is it simply to provide to the multi-room functionality? We know its not for volume control as Naim explicitly state (on the website) "At the heart of Uniti is an audiophile volume control which adjusts level in the analogue...

Re: Naim Uniti (1st gen) & Nap 100 - Is this partnership possible?

Hungryhalibut ·
Welcome back, Lewis. If you want to add CD, I'd just get a Rega Apollo, or whatever their latest is. I certainly don't see any point is swapping the Qute to the Uniti. Anyway, it wouldn't give extra oomph, as you would have to use the amp in either the Uniti or the 100. You need to think carefully what you are trying to achieve, to avoid lots of boxes and potential redundancy. Do you really need a CD player if everything is on a hard drive. Probably not.

Lewis ·
Thanks guys. Well ideally I don't want another box, hence the concept of swapping out the Qute for the Uniti you see. So even on the Qute, is it just using the power from the Nap 100 rather than the Qute too? I have the Nap next to my Sondek and don't want to change the appearance you see, it's noce and neat. Also re the connecting cable, the Qute uses a Din to phono, assume i'd need to get a din to din for the Uniti? Hmm it's never easy is it!

Re: Naim Uniti (1st gen) & Nap 100 - Is this partnership possible?

ChrisSU ·
I think your own suggestion of a Uniti makes total sense if you want a CD player. At 70W, a Uniti 2 has more power than either a Qute or a NAP100. (Maybe the Uniti 1 was only 60W?? Still more than a 100 though.) So everything you need in one box. Not sure if you're using a Stageline, but if so, it will power that too.

I'd get a Naim Uniti 2. I'm slightly biased having purchased one recently but it's a fair bit better than the 'original' better sounding CD player etc 24/192 there is Spotify if you must and Tidal too.. Oh and BBC Web Radio which is rather good.. If you look around you can get hold of an 'old' stock U2 for a good price.

thanks again guys. Really I only use Spotify and the harddrive on my Qute, so as long as the Uniti 1 has the Spotify connect function that's all i'd need. Thing is I can pick up a Uniti 1for under a grand, whereas a 2 is over 2K! Hmm you've definitely got me thinking. I didn't want to add boxes and I don't like things mismatching. The other option is a unitiserve but then it's another box (albeit a small one). What do we think to that?

Bad idea! Very bad idea indeed. Think about this - you have a great turntable and great speakers. Surely they deserve at least a uniti2? You could sell the Qute and the 100. But... If you just want a CD player, how about a used CD5x? But why...

The Uniti 1 needs to go back to Salisbury to get an upgrade to run Spotify and given the likely vintage of a Uniti 1 - I have a late one which I think was 2012 - and the cost of an upgrade (c £300) I would agree with Hungryhalibut add a CD player or swap to uniti2. jatr

I like my Unitiserve, but they cost over 2K, which is more than you're prepared to spend on a Uniti 2. So in the context of your system, rather expensive. Also, you mention that you have a hard drive of some sort already, so don't you have that one covered already?

You could simply add a cd player, either via analogue in or optical/coax into the uq. Are you biamping with the nap100 or using it "solo"?

Ok cheers gents. So are my old SBL's 4 or 8 ohms do we know?�� I assume the Uniti 1 would power them @ 50W per channel. So there's be no point at all keeping the nap 100 then? Perhaps I could use he finds towards a better phono stage for the LP12? Don't Naim do a fancy one above the stage line that looks pretty much like the Nap 100 (I'm sure they do but cannot remember what they're called).

There is potential to throw the baby out with the bath water here. The amp in the uniti is basically a Nait 5i, so it's got to ge doubtful whether a Uniti is better than the Qute/100. Why not just add a CD player, if indeed you really need one?

Another thing to be aware ... if you swap from the UnitiQute 2 to the original NaimUniti (non 24/192 upgraded) you are going to find some functionality missing. Not sure exactly but the Uniti v2 streaming hardware added functionality such as Spotify and lately Tidal. +1 to Hungryhalibut (IMO)

Good point about missing functionality on a Uniti 1. I believe it can have a hardware upgrade to give 24/192, multiroom and Tidal if you want it, but it would be at a cost. Regarding phono stages, depending on the spec. of your turntable, I would suggest that a Stageline would be nice, but that a Superfine, at over £2000 new, might be overkill.

Thanks for all the advice guys. I think you've convinced me (and rightly so) to abandon the Uniti 1st gen idea. With regard to buying a separate CDP or would need a digital output to rub via the Qute right? I don't have space for a full size box but something like the Cyrus could work? Black to match the Naim obviously. What do we think?

You can either connect to the Qute's analogue input or digital. Its down to which you prefer. The Rega Apollo-r is an alternative to the Cyrus which would match with the Qute. Alternatively Cyrus will sell you a CD transport to connect to the digital input.

I still think a Uniti would be a good solution, but maybe a Uniti 2 would be worth hunting out. Then you have a CD player, the Spotify compatibility you want, and a fair bit of extra power which I suspect will get much more performance from your speakers. Of course there's nothing wrong with just adding a CD player, and it's a cheaper, easier short term solution, but then you have 3 non-matching boxes instead of one higher performing one. If you're patient you might get a good used Uniti 2...

If you're using a phono stage then that will be connected to the (only) analogue input. Your NAP will be connected to the pre-amp (analogue) output. So yes the digital input makes the most sense - most CD players (including the Rega I mentioned) have a digital output. One (budget) option is to use something like a DVD player to spin your CDs connected to the digital input (but the Rega looks better IMO). Other half width options include Pro-ject's "Box" range and second hand older Cyrus...
