I may have miss it but does the Uniti Core has DLNA 1.5 on it? Can Bubble upnp see it as a renderer?

The Core is a UPnP / DLNA server but not a renderer.

my understanding is that the Core does include a renderer as it can output the digital stream direct to a DAC.

Sorry but I disagree with your (and @Innocent Bystander above) comment / assessment.

The question asked was "Can BubbleUPnP see it as a renderer". So the question being asked is specifically if it has a UPnP compatible renderer.  Which is (afaik) does not.  

The Core does have a player, but that needs controlling by the Naim application NOT by a UPnP control point.

I wasn't answering the question about Bubble, but correcting the statement that the Core is not a renerer, because I understand that it is. (Even if it might not show to Bubble as a renderer) - it can, i believe, render the contents stored on it, to feed direct to a DAC.

Perhaps Phil Harris could confirm?

The term "Renderer" is usually used in the context of a device which takes in a file and plays it so I guess that you could say that the Core is a renderer but I think it's best to categorize it as a ripper / storage device / server / player rather than renderer.

So ... I think it's best to refer to the Core as a "hard disc player" and the streamers as "renderers".

Is the Core going to be a better "hard disk player" than the Serve, HDD or SSD for that matter, or just a more functional player?  :siffle:

Chag -

Functionality should be the same. It may break down less....I hope.

And we don't know yet whether it will have higher sound quality or not. I think we can rely on it not being worse.

Despite all the goodies, the CORE loses, compared to the unitiserve: Internet Radio, control via naim server remote handset, and VGA output.

S.

VGA? As in Video Graphics Adapter? It's a music player, and possibly one that might be competitive with, amongst other things, Melco, MacMini/AUdirvana, innuos Zenith, NAS+ND5XS or NDX as renderer.

 And do we actually know about remote control of it yet?

Better PS than the Userve, replaceable HD, very important since a disk will break down often before the rest of the hardware and HD sizes just keeps growing all the time,  and a trip to Naim HQ is costly.

But the lack of internet radio is bad if you only want one server in your system and not both a server and a streamer. Finally we lose the desktop client, and Naim is not going to develop a Win/Mac software for the servers, at least this has not been announced. I hope repair cost for my dead NS01 will be reasonable since the DTC and the remote is my primary way to control the player, and the smartphones app even though it is getting better, is a big step backwards!

I heard it in Salisbury last week. It sounds great and as it has neither a switched mode power supply nor a Microsoft OS, you can swap discs yourself if you want to, using HDD or SSD and/or a NAS and you control it with the same Naim app that you use for streamers, what's not to like?

It would be good if Naim gave us long suffering US owners a trade-in on the new Uniti Core.....

Mine has had 2 hdd failures in 3yrs!!

Superuniti and Muso have been perfect, but the US has been a joke especially for the price!

and still hopeful on the Core i guess

Willing to give it a second chance 

The biggest problems with the US are the power supply,non-removable hdd and the ancient XP operating system and the new Core has addressed these!!

The UC Quick Start Guide is now available on the website. It is a very quick guide indeed. At least a quick sign.  :]

Chag -

... as well as rather simple Core support topics. Has serving really become that straightforward, OR is the Core's architecture similar to that of the unitiServe and the subtleties are just hidden so far? There is only one way to find out...
