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...

In all honesty, that's what I am thinking right now: 1. I prefer to be late but refined. That launch was a disaster 2.

I have an appointment to listen to the new Unitis on 23rd June, my dealer's promised to ring if he gets told the demo units will slip. I might ring him today just to check. I want a second system for the upstairs lounge to have good sound while having the better views over the valley, and a Nova (or Atom) would fit nicely with the NDX and the Qbs. But like everyone else, the wait is draining enthusiasm, although I still have the day off work, a 10am start, and a List of speakers to try with...

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. I tried this with 3 positions - holding the back of the remote against the front panel, holding front of the remote against the front panel and holding the head of the remote against the front panel.

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...

Firmware 2.3.1 - Uniti Range

Very boring plain Hdmi log. But am I imagining it or is anyone else's Nova, Atom and Star sounded different - sorry I'm breaking in some new speakers so maybe a speaker change, but this does seem Nova related.

So having listened to the Atom for a few hours last night there is no real change after the upgrade, I still have the same issues with the app and the display still acts up so it's a bit disappointing on that front, no feature changes or enhancements either. I dont have the HDMI option so it would be interesting to hear if that's actually been sorted.

Ahhh bummer... sorry for the wild goose chase. They definitely are on the Musos. Having updated my Atom the other night I too thought it sounded a bit different... hard to describe really... a bit more synthetic... better separation up high but more muddy down below. That said, I had already read this thread when I updated so it's possibly all in my head. I've also had a cold so my ears are probably misbehaving too.

I have had a 5 minute play with several inputs - Tidal, unusable, sounds good but runs for 5-6 seconds and stops, continually. Spotify - very slow to respond to the app but I can confirm others views regarding sound, I have a Bose Mini speaker that sounds significantly better than the Atom today..... The Atom sounds trash and quite frankly there are better sub £200 systems. Airplay... Atom will not respond to Airplay connectivity calls.... Another night of watching the TV then... Friday and...

Hi Mercky, network is all good and strong. I have no network issues at all other than with this £2k lump of junk. I have tried several wireless access points, routers, config, fixed IP, auto DNS, etc etc. Even tried IP over mains.... I have a lot on the network and nothing else misses a beat, ever. The Atom barely manages to hit one.... a streamer that doesn’t stream is of limited use. My £350 Marantz was a massive improvement over this and never had unresolvable network issues.

Re: Firmware 2.3.1 - Uniti Range

David Hendon ·
Nevertheless, it will be your network. The fact that other things work doesn't mean that your network properly responds to the standard protocols that Naim uses. You should try turning it all off, restarting your router and any switch, then restart your Atom. And try it with something local like a USB drive before you abandon it completely..... Good luck anyway. best David

I remember when I had my Muso I was playing Apple Music through it via airplay and accidentally I whacked the volume up full blast for a few seconds on my ipad, now if you’ve heard a muso full tilt its pretty loud! I turned it down immediately and was concerned I’d damaged the speakers, I checked everything and all seemed fine but I was convinced in my mind I’d damaged the unit and that it dident sound right compared to before, I never really got over it and it plagued me until I traded up.

Hi Mercky I didn't crank up the volume so doubt that's the issue. Maybe some kind of pre-bias as I'd read Obsydian's post, but I think I'm fairly objective. Before I updated I played several tracks, updated, then played them again and those particular ones went from being spine-tingly good to so-so and uninspiring and so has everything else since. Yes the music plays, just there's no soul or depth to it whatever I play.

I understand that an update for the app (Android but may apply equally to IOS) would be appearing close to the time of the firmware upgrade, in telephone conversation with Naim support. No sign of it yet but, for me, sorely needed.

Well, since last update, I have reconfigured all my network and half the devices on it, have done full factory resets on all devices (atom, muso, Qb 1 and Qb 2) and things seems better. Both actions seemed to deliver some improvements. I had a new Ubiquiti Unifi AP which was seemingly a root cause of some of the issues - I exchanged it for multiple wired and wireless TP 1300 AP devices and many of the direct connectivity issues are much better - (so thanks guys for pointing me in that...

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.

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

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.

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

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"?
