Today Naim unveiled something that you should definitely be interested in if you like listening to music.
Called the Naim Until Atom, it is an all-in-one audio player that will provide you with access to audio from a variety of sources, be them hardware components or cloud-linked services.
It is basically a tiny digital and analog box that is sized at 10-inch square and 4-inch tall that allows you to plug in a set of wired speakers into the back of it, or wirelessly connect Naim’s Mu-So or Mu-So Qb speakers, which you can then use to play audio from streaming services like Google Cast, Spotify Connect, and Tidal, or over Bluetooth aptX or AirPlay.
You can also plug a portable or non-portable hard drive into one of the box’s two USB ports and play high-res formats like FLAC, WAV, AIFF, or ALAC. There are also RCA inputs around the pack, with optical TOSLink inputs and HDMI for ARC audio input.
And that’s still not all. The Uniti Atom can also stream music directly from supported services over Wi-Fi, or over a hardwired Ethernet connection.
You can control all of this via Naim’s app for iOS and Android or via the physical control buttons, which will light up when your hand reaches towards it, which is done with the in-built proximity sensor.
There’s also a volume dial with various playback controls on the top, with a 5-inch display on the front that will show album art and artist information during playback. There’s also a Bluetooth remote control that comes with the unit, which will wake the Atom up when you pick it up and offers a number of presets for quick access to your favorites.
All of this doesn’t come cheap, with prices set at $2,995 for when it releases in December. It will join Naim’s high-end Uniti lineup, so it might surprise you that the price tag for the Atom is actually quite cheap when compared to the rest of the items in the lineup.
