Unlike typical headphone amplifiers and DACs, there’s no need to hook-up a laptop or separate streaming source, this Uniti Atmos has everything onboard.

Naim’s own music-streaming platform has Qobuz, Apple Music, TIDAL and Spotify on-board, and it also receives Internet radio with a specially curated collection of HD-quality music stations. The system is also Roon Ready.

This handsome music system doesn’t have a large footprint

Wireless connectivity on the Uniti Atom Headphone Edition includes Bluetooth, Chromecast built-in and AirPlay 2. 

Not that you have to stay wireless. The compact (95 mm x 245 mm x 265 mm) unit also provides local hook-up for digital (with two digital optical audio inputs or a coaxial) and analogue music components, yes, that includes a turntable, as well as USB port for music playback. File support is broad, with resolutions up to 32bit/384kHz.

Beneath the hood, we’re told, there’s technology taken from Naim’s Statement amplifier, as well as a discrete transistor circuit design that offers balanced headphone outputs, on both 4 pin XLR and Pentaconn, in addition to a standard 6.3mm output.
