Can we have a Nova progress thread please?

This was posted by Naim on 21st July:

"The Production Department continues at maximum output, building and testing Uniti Nova ready for an imminent release, alongside Uniti Atom and Uniti Core to fulfil your order allocations."

I may have had a senior moment yesterday when I couldn't find the Uniti progress thread but I now see it,  albeit not updated in a week. I believe we should have this thread maintained as promised until both Nova and Star are released. People have made commitments and plans on the basis of  promises of much earlier release dates and its not unreasonable to want to be kept informed. Some of us have paid deposits or will need to sell kit to afford the new Unitis - it's not just idle curiosity.

I agree, been a week since last update and I too would like to understand progress made in the weekend testing.  I keep looking at the Naim product website to see if the Naim Nova product page has been updated with the interactive support manual but seen nothing yet.  The Naim Atom page was updated a day before the actual release announcement so assuming we will see a similar move as an indication its very close.    Come on Naim and don't tell me to ask the dealer as I did this when I saw the words "imminent.  Dealer called and you could not tell him anything new.

Phil any news please??

We know it's launched after Atom and Nova, hence no news likely until Nova is launched. Star is also more complex combining the attributes of the uniti core and atom/ Nova. And there are issues with core and atom for some forum members, core was launched in january.

Considering that Star pretty much incorporates the Atom and the Core in one box and in view of the fact that quite a few issues with the smaller two counterparts have been addressed I would have thought (at least I hope) that the Star should not present many issues. It would be nice if the Star is releassed before Christmas.

Well the post from Trevor 2 weeks ago said Nova was imminent, though my dealer laughed at this and put my demo back to September at the earliest. I know what you are saying, but this whole launch has been beset by problems, who knows, hence we have requested the weekly updates.

Naim,  whats the latest on the Nova please??  As per Gazza's comments you said it was imminent subject to final testing/ certification about ten days ago with some heavy testing over a weekend.  Unfortunately all we got was a minor update on Core/ Atoms last week and no further Nova news.  Did all go to plan with your Nova certification??

Phil from Naim had originally told me via another thread that code to the Atom was similar and only real delay was that production was initially to be based on getting Atoms out first. 

Please let us know more as think its almost 4 weeks since the Atom came out and psychologically to miss another month and get my unit in September when I placed my order in November last year means I have now reached double digits (10 months) on my wait

Thanks John

Hi, I received a call from my local dealer today, who himself had been phoned by Naim. Apparently Naim Nova passed its final certification. I also noticed an update to the Naim Nova web product page. It has been updated with a few new high resolution photos. Although no support manual like the Atom yet. All tangible signs we getting very close now for the Nova production release!!  

Disappointingly, this is still a live issue! Although dealers now have demo Novas, with possibly one or two exceptions they still haven't shipped any for those of us who have had them on order for months.

The Uniti progress thread has not been updated this week in spite of promises of weekly updates - surely a post once a week is not too much to ask? There are still many issues outstanding - my dealer hopes to have Novas soon but has no firm delivery date and the Star is still in orbit somewhere unknown. The least Naim can do is keep us informed as they said they would, they shouldn't need nagging.

Sorry but this week's "update" is less than earth shattering - a fix for an obscure minor problem with the app. 

The August 25th update spoke of building but not shipping Novas and Stars. My dealer has no firm delivery date for his order placed months ago. I would be interested to know how many have been shipped for customers as opposed to dem units, or if that's confidential then what proportion of pre orders have been satisfied. Also how some people seem to be able to get one immediately - is this a one off or are Naim's delivery processes chaotic or subject to favouritism? What is needed is some indication of the proportion of pre orders fulfilled so far and a date by which they all will be delivered. That would count as a progress update.

Good luck to you Obsydian but I am royally pissed off!

Are you in the UK? I can't see why you don't go and pick one up this afternoon if you are, they're readily available.

Having already placed a firm order with a dealer I will stand by my word, but I would be interested to know how readily they really are available (I am in the UK) as that's not what my dealer is telling me. That would count as a progress update.

For what it's worth (I'm in the UK) I ordered in February from my dealer, was fortunate to get a "pre-price increase" pre-order and will have my Nova tomorrow. I sympathise with those of you having to wait longer but no doubt now things are moving the supply chain will slowly ease. Yes, it's been a long wait but early reports from those lucky enough to have the Nova appear to indicate that it will be well worth the wait.
