Uniti Progress Update

We are over a week since the last update regarding progress on the Uniti Nova which was imminent a couple of weeks ago? And other members are interested in a Atom hdmi and of course the Star. Can we have another update please, would be appreciated.

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!!

John, if I click on support for Atom all I get is the drop down menu of questions, no means of changing to nova? Did your dealer give an idea of timing, mine is still saying some time in September. A s Richard said hopefully all we made clear in an update in the next day or so.

Hi, goto https://www.naimaudio.com/product/uniti-atom

then go to support in bottom left.

then under the device picture you will see "change device".  From here you can select Muso, Atom, Core or the new Nova.  Then manuals will change.

 No exact promise on dates,  but based on Atom going from certification to delivery it was a week to ten days.  So think your dealer is realistic to suggest September.    I placed a deposit in November'16 so hoping mine will near the top for early delivery in the month.  

Yes Gazza saw that about HDMI in the manual.  But when you look at web product page no mention it's an option like on the Atom.  Taken a screen shot just in case it becomes an issue! If mine does not come with it or they try and charge me extra will consider it a trades description issue!!  Naim you been warned, when I placed my deposit the only option was the DAB board.

Yes also paid deposit on this basis!

Big John posted:

Correct I paid deposit based on the website specification.  No expectation that things being suddenly left out.  Was also guaranteed the 2016 price as part of this early order with deposit.

Aren't you both going a bit over the top here?  If Naim decide to change the spec thats within their rights (pre-production material will usually state that all details are subject to change).  Your right is then to not purchase and have any deposit (which is between you and the dealer not between you and Naim) returned.  I can see there might be disappointment and you might have to look elsewhere for a product but no one is holding a gun to your head to buy the Uniti Nova especially if the final device doesn't come up to your expectations.

As it is its probably a error on the website due to someone cutting and pasting the details.

Just out of curiousity; I've ordered my Atom in May this year ... I've just had a call from my dealer that my Atom will be available not earlier than the first week of September :-( 

But: I've ordered an Atom without HDMI, so I wonder if it wille be possible to retr-fit the HDMI option. And if so, will it be a simple action which can be done by myself or my dealer, or will the Unit need to be returned to Salisbury?

Klout, probably a question that only your dealer and/or Naim can answer...

This is covered in the FAQs section of the Atom on-line support pages on Naim's website. It says that an upgrade kit will be made available by Naim and you should ask your dealer whether they will be offering it (which to me implies that it's a dealer fit, not a factory fit).

Phil Harris said in the original Uniti launch thread that the HDMI functionality wouldn't be a DIY fit though (I just re-read it).

If it were me, I would probably get my dealer to change the order.......

imminent
ˈ
adjective: imminent
  1. 1.
    about to happen.
    "they were in imminent danger of being swept away"
    synonyms:impending, at hand, closenear, approaching, fast approaching, comingforthcoming, on the way, about to happen, upon us, in store, in the offing, in the pipeline, on the horizon, in the air, in the wind, brewing, looming, looming large; ADDENDUM: except when it applies to Nova release!

"Available to buy" which no doubt means that you can place an order and pay. And it says "experience it on demonstration at your local retailer" but it doesn't say when.

But I would be surprised if we don't hear very soon that they are at last shipping Novas, especially with both apps updated in the last 24 hours..

It does actually say today.

I stand corrected. It is indeed in the title.

Anyway good for Naim getting it out at last. When I heard it at the factory last November I thought it was a lot more refined that the Atom (as it should be given the price differential) so it will be interesting to see what the early buyers on the forum think of it.
