Enquire about this product

The UnitiQute includes a preamplifier with two analogue inputs, five 32bit/192kHz-capable digital inputs and all the traditional Naim musical clarity and transparency. Next, UnitiQute includes a muscular power amplifier that provides all the rhythmic punch and definition you would expect from Naim.

You want conventional radio? Well, UnitiQute includes FM and DAB+  tuners that get the best possible performance from either format. UnitiQute is happy also to play music from an iPod or MP3 player via its front panel-mounted USB socket. The USB audio connection is digital so iPod sound quality is optimised, and Apple authenticated too so compatibility is seamless. And the same USB socket can be used to play music files in almost any format at up to 32bit/192kHz resolution straight from a memory stick. And it doesn't end there.

A network Ethernet socket and integrated Wi-Fi means that, along with everything else, UnitiQute can easily tap into Internet radio or UPnP servers, a Naim HDX for example, to drop almost unlimited music choices right into your lap. Talk about cute. This model doesn’t include a CD player, while the Uniti2 does.

Plus the Naim Audio app for iOS and Android integrated with TIDAL, lossless audio streaming service makes the package even more appealing.

Technology and Craft
UnitiQute 2 may be compact but it packs some serious audio technology within its elegant extruded and die-cast aluminium enclosure. Its digital audio performance profits immeasurably from literally decades of high-end digital audio and amplification knowhow.

The integrated amplifier section of the UnitiQute 2 has been influenced heavily by the iconic NAIT range while it also benefits from Naim Audio advancements in digital streaming technology that won a Queen’s Award for Innovation in 2014. Its digital connectivity also means that as well as offering all-in-one functionality operating as a digital hub for external digital sources, games consoles or digital TV audio for example, it can also output its internal sources or external digital signals to an external DAC for even higher audio quality.

Analogue audio connectivity is not forgotten either. Two analogue inputs can accommodate CD players or portable music players via rear panel phono sockets and a front-panel mini-jack. And a preamplifier output means that with the addition of an external power amplifier, or even a sub-woofer, UnitiQute 2 can become the heart of a very wide bandwidth audio system. And when you want to listen privately, a front panel headphone socket makes such selfishness all too easy.
