Naim’s flagship all-in-one system is now here.
There’s a convention in high-end audio that says only separates can reach genuine high-end performance. Well, not any more. The NaimUniti showed just how much audio performance and versatility could be housed within one stylish casing. Now the SuperUniti takes the concept still further to tear-up the rule book and play with the big boys.
"All-in-one" means not just an integrated amplifier and a couple of integrated sources. SuperUniti genuinely can do it all. Take a deep breath because listing its talents takes a while. SuperUniti is an integrated wireless UPnP™ network stream player, USB audio player, iPod and iPhone dock, internet radio, DAB radio, FM radio, ten input digital and analogue preamplifier, digital to analogue converter, and stereo 80 Watt power amplifier. And just so that you don't lose track of time while listening - easily done - it has an alarm clock too. Out of breath?
SuperUniti might well contain all the audio versatility you'll ever need, but audio versatility is nothing without musical ability, and that's where four decades of Naim audio expertise comes in. Not only does SuperUniti do everything, it does it all with brilliant clarity and heart-stopping emotion. Every musical source, from internet radio via analogue inputs through to digital streams, is played with genuine musical quality. Every drop of music is squeezed from every stream of data - whatever its provenance.

Arcam’s D33 now in stock
With the audio market now full of new-generation digital audio devices and sources, Arcam introduce its latest and highest performing DAC to date, the D33 SuperDAC. Using state of the art dual Burr Brown PCM1792, 24bit / 192kHz converters (one per channel), twin toroidal transformers in the power supply and state-of-the-art 4-layer printed circuit boards, the D33 offers music lovers a level of performance that involves, enthrals and engages from the first note to the last encore. Arcam’s thirty-five years of audio engineering experience is all wrapped up in the D33, which benefits from critically damped, low resonance casework, massive power regulation plus extensive low-noise sub-regulation. The Arcam team’s attention to detail has even delivered an incredibly low 0.5w standby power consumption and duplex RS232 control interface for custom installation. We believe the performance of the D33 SuperDAC will set a new benchmark for it’s cost.

The use of high quality lossless files such as WAV, FLAC and ALAC offer performance through the DAC equal to and in some cases better than red book CD. This also makes a fantastic upgrade to many CD players including Rega’s own Apollo.
Five user selectable digital filters. Two isolated Co-axial inputs, two Toslink SPDIF inputs & Isolated USB input. Input stage comprising of a Wolfson digital receiver with a high stability low jitter clock. Jitter minimised by synchronously clocking the digital data with Rega’s own receiver PLL. A pair of parallel-connected Wolfson WM8742 DAC's, which are driven via a buffer stage. Housed in a brand new custom steel & aluminium case.
