User ManualNaim "Uniti" Brochure


"Where I could, I compared the new rips with the vinyl version of the same album and although my preference is for the black (and indeed sometimes coloured) 12inch discs, I could happily live with the Uniti Core as my only source."



"Ripping from your CD collection is an easy matter – simply slot the CD in and the Core reads it, stores the music and also downloads album artwork."



"This isn’t simply some rebadged product from  the  last  generation.  This  is  a  true  revolution  in  performance  from  Naim,  and  both come with the highest recommendation possible."
