Changing from Unitiqute 2 to Atom

Just changed from a Qute2/NAP100, noticeably better sound, more space, detail and control, was thinking of keeping the NAP but that has also now been replaced. The new remote and updates to the app mean you can power off remotely (no more fiddling around the back for the power switch.)  and the remote is brilliant. Love the cover art but it would be nice if Naim allowed this to be switched off. The only real minus IMHO is the so far total incompatibility with universal remotes (I use a Logitech Harmony) strange because both Naim and Logitech use iOS and android apps so there must be some way of the discrete codes being ported..so its back to 2 removed when I watch TV!

The new remote runs a new WiFi type connection known as Zigbee, which is completely different to the infra red that most conventional remotes use. I susoect universal remotes running Zigbee will appear sooner or later, but until then, they are entirely incompatible.

It's not even as simple as that.  There are different versions of Zigbee that are not compatible with each other.  I use Control4 which is Zigbee based and play video (SkyQ, bluray and Apple TV) through the Atom but have to use the Naim remote.  I'm also very reliably informed that Naim have no plans to develop compatible drivers although hopefully a third party will.

Returning to the OP the Atom is a big step up in every way, sound quality in particular.
