About the Naim Uniti Atom

Ralph Graves

Just add speakers

If you're serious about your music but want to keep your system simple, consider the Naim Uniti Atom. It's really three components in one. Its built-in amplifier, conservatively rated at 40 watts, will make all but the most power-hungry speakers sing. Its precision DAC circuitry will extract more musical clarity and presence from digital sources such as a disc player or TV. And with built-in Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth®, you can stream music from your phone or the web with the touch of a button.

Its precision DAC circuitry will extract more musical clarity and presence from digital sources such as a disc player or TV. And with built-in Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth®, you can stream music from your phone or the web with the touch of a button.

Quality construction for amazing sound

Naim's engineers are fanatics when it comes to construction and parts quality. One tipoff is the Uniti Atom's massive power transformer (see photo). It ensures that the power supply is always smooth, stable, and noise-free. Premium Burr-Brown DACs (digital-to-analog converters) and hand-wired analog and digital circuitry contribute to Uniti's extremely accurate sound reproduction.

The front panel's 5” full-color display has a proximity sensor that wakes up on approach, and the big top-mounted volume control is a pleasure to use.

Digital convenience and analog soul

The Uniti Atom is a great way to enjoy some of the higher-quality digital music sources, such as high-res downloads from HDtracks, or TIDAL's lossless streaming service. The Atom can store up to five minutes of data, ensuring high-resolution streaming audio isn't interrupted by buffering. And the system can instantly access up to 20,000 songs from an attached USB drive to keep the music flowing.

Stream music wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet to the Uniti Atom via Bluetooth. The system includes aptX audio coding, an advanced type of Bluetooth wireless streaming that retains virtually all the detail of the audio signal it carries.

Physical inputs include an HDMI ARC port for connecting your TV as an audio source, one coaxial and two Toslink optical digital connections, a pair of USB inputs for plugging in compatible thumb drives, and a stereo analog RCA input.

The Uniti Atom is also AirPlay-compatible for convenient wireless playback from your iPhone®, iPod touch®, iPad®, or computer running iTunes®. And with the Naim app on your Apple portable, you can use Rovi to discover new music and artists based on those you already like.

Multi-room audio with the Naim app

With Naim's free control app downloaded to your smartphone or tablet, you can make your Uniti Atom part of a Naim wireless multi-room audio system. The system uses Google Chromecast built-in transmitting through your home's Wi-Fi®. Chromecast built-in gives you access to all your favorite music services right in the Naim app, such as TIDAL, Spotify, Deezer, Qobuz and more.

Remotely control your Naim components through the app. Group your connected speakers so that the same song plays throughout the house, or only on certain systems. Or have every Naim component accessing a different source and playing a different song. You can also build playlists with the app, and browse thousands of internet radio stations.

Quality Construction: The Naim Uniti Atom has been impeccably crafted with materials chosen to complement its reference-level sound performance. The extruded aluminum heat sinks that run down the length of the product extract heat to maximize thermal stability for increased longevity and sonic performance. The beautifully brushed aluminum top plates are CNC-fabricated for absolute precision and provide a perfect enclosure for the delicate components inside. As well as preventing radio frequency interruption, the casework also houses built-in antennas for WiFi and Bluetooth to provide a more aesthetic pleasing look.

Class A/B Amplification: The Uniti Atom uses a powerful 40 watt x 2 channel A/B class amplifier with technology taken from Naim's iconic integrated amplifiers. From the substantial transformer, which ensures that the power supply is always smooth and stable, to the sophisticated, hand-wired analogue and digital circuitry, every element of the design in Uniti Atom has been considered for its effect on sound quality. 

40-Bit SHARC DSP: The Uniti Atom features a incredibly powerful and extremely accurate fourth generation 40-bit SHARC DSP. It performs a staggering 2.7 billion calculations per second, giving it enough power to resolve the most complex music signals with ease

Isolated Analog & Digital Circuitry: Extreme care has been taken to protect sensitive components in the audio signal path from digital circuitry-isolated circuit boards for both analog and digital signals, optical isolators to transfer information between the two sides of the products, and careful testing and analysis by Naim audio experts to catch any stray interference.

Precision Volume Control: A premium rotary volume control adjusts the volume level in the analog domain to a digital resolution. It features ultra-smooth rotation and backlit illumination. The lit volume segments are reflected in the same fashion on Uniti Atom's intuitive remote control and will adjust accordingly on the top surface ring if the volume is changed remotely.

Can I watch TV (football etc) and hear music (Amazon music or Spotify etc) at the same time with this as my AV system?
[ Gale  Dec 13, 2021 ]

This is not an A/V receiver and does not have any video inputs. However, it does have multiple types of audio inputs that allow you to connect, for example, the sound from your TV and separately the sound from your Blue Ray/DVD player so that, in this way, you can watch TV and have the TV sound come this or watch TV and have this play music at the same time.

Just use the preamp out. It doesn't have any crossover controls so you have to ensure your sub has those. Works fine with Bowers sub.

Don't know if the Uniti atom has internal storage, Most of the music comes from tidal and roon. Naim has a radio station. This unit has all the codecs you want So storage on the other platforms streaming to the unit is no problem. The sound is fantastic.
[ Anthony  Jul 08, 2021 ]
This is a streaming device and amplifier - no internal storage.
[ JONATHAN MITO  Jul 07, 2021 ]
I have had the Naim Uniti Atom for two years now and have not been disappointed. Outstanding sound a quality product. However, there is no internal memory on this unit to store music files. There are inputs in order to connect external sources. Hope that's not a deal breaker for you because this is a great piece of gear.
[ Gary  Jul 07, 2021 ]
It does not have internal storage but you can hook up an external drive, USB stick or connect a NAS via your network.
[ CHRISTOPHER  Jul 07, 2021 ]

Hello, could this be paired with a couple of ELAC Carina FS247.4 speakers ? How would that compare with the Focal Chora 826?

Hi again, anybody tried the Uniti Atom driving the Revel F36 ? Heard these recently and liked them even better than the Elac 247.4 ...
[ Riccardo  Dec 08, 2020 ]
I don't know about the Focals, but I have my Atom set up with Carinas in a mid sized room and it is an absolutely perfect pairing. So lively!! I stream through an Innuos Zen mini in front of the Atom, but use the Atom's DAC most of the time.

The Naim Atom accepts any standard 4mm speaker banana plug. I'm using the Sewell Silverback plugs and they work great. The Naim plugs that come with the unit require soldering the speaker wire.

Yes, I connect the outputs of my phono preamp to the RCA inputs.
[ EUGENE  Dec 13, 2021 ]
This unit does not have a phono input. However, if the turntable has a built in pre-amp you could connect it to the RCA input. You could also purchase a separate phono pre-amp to use a turntable that does not have the pre-amp built in.

[ Thomas  Sep 24, 2020 ]  Staff
I have had a squeezebox touch for quite some time, which seems to take care of my streaming needs. I understand that the Naim Uniti Atom can do much more, but already have an integrated Amp, so wondering if its worth considering this unit?
[ wolfgang  Sep 02, 2020 ]
3 answers
i have my Naim connected to my audio research integrated amp. So basically using it as a pre-amp. To me what is great about the Naim is the quality of the sound it produces. It dramatically increases the sound field across the spectrum from the highs to mids to lows. The clarity that the Naim produces is significant. I have been very pleased and would highly recommend the Naim Atom.
[ Gary  Sep 03, 2020 ]
Definitely worth considering but I think it depends on what integrated amp and speakers you already have. The amp in the Naim Atom is a very good one. If you have good speakers, they will probably sound better (reveal more detail in the music) with a quality unit like the Atom. Mine definitely did. On the other hand, if you already have a really good, high quality integrated amp, I would not bother to change it. Or if your speakers are not very efficient and require a really high powered amp, the Atom probably doesn't make sense. The Atom is actually more powerful than the specifications would lead you to believe, but some speakers are very inefficient and just require more power in order to sound good.

I also have a very fine integrated amp, but was so jazzed to get the Atom that I decided to set up a second system in a different listening room. I absolutely love the Atom for all that it delivers. Most of all is the super sweet sound. I have it integrated into my network, and I use it as a Roon endpoint which is so cool. It's alsovthe source for my TV. The quality remote is also a nice bonus. Did I mention the amazing sound?

I have two pair of wired bookshelf speakers (different rooms) which I would like to use. Speaker selector switch? Does that degrade the audio?

no HDMI - but the image of the back shows an HDMI port?
[ Andy  Jun 16, 2020 ]

The Naim Uniti Atom is/was available with or without an HDMI port, double-check before you order (the non-HDMI units usually cost less). It's main use is for connection to a TV with HDMI ARC (audio return channel) to send digital sound from the TV to the Atom. Works great for that.

How does multi room/zone work? What would that configuration look like?
[ Andy  Jun 16, 2020 ]
1 answer
Naim has features that allow one Naim unit to stream content to other Naim units over the network for multi-room music in an all-Naim configuration. However if you have an iPhone/iPad using Naim's AirPlay 2 support is easier and allows multi-room streaming to any/all Naim units as well as other non-Naim equipment and/or Apple TV devices connected to any audio system. You can also stream Tidal via AirPlay 2 for best sound quality. You do need a solid network connection between everything (either good WiFi or a wired Ethernet connection where possible).

Can the speakers be turned off so that the unit behaves like a preamp?
[ Rick  Mar 31, 2020 ]
2 answers
Yes, I currently use this as a streamer/preamp and use the preamp outputs with nothing connected to the speaker outputs.
[ EUGENE  Dec 13, 2021 ]
The unit does have pre-amp outputs for connecting to an external amplifier. You can't "disable" the speaker outputs, but you can just no use them.

Does this have enough power for my KEF LS50 speakers?
[ John  Mar 23, 2020 ]

I'm using the Atom with 8ohm 87db SVS Ultra bookshelf speakers and they sound great.
[ JONATHAN MITO  Nov 12, 2020 ]
I have the Atom and was looking into buying the LS50 (they sound great) but ending up getting something else. But I did a lot of research on them and how much power they needed and got mixed feedback. Some said the LS50 needs a lot of power to sound their best. A couple other people who actually have the LS50 powered by the Naim Atom said they sound great together. The Atom has a robust power supply and seems to have more power than its specifications indicate. So even though I don't have first hand experience with this combination I personally think the Atom would be powerful enough. Even more so if you have a powered sub-woofer. Hope that helps a little bit.

Does Uniti Atom have a 4 ohm rating? Sorry, I got cut off when waiting for Dougâ??s response. Thanks
[ Scott  Nov 30, 2019 ]

I've never found a 4 ohm power rating for this but it is a high current design and so I've driven 4 ohm loads with it and the power output is impressive. It also automatically mutes itself if/when you drive it too hard (i.e., too much current).
[ EUGENE  Dec 13, 2021 ]
40watts per channel into 8 ohms is basically 80 watts per channel into 4 ohms.

Hi... what would be a good bookshelf speaker for the Naim Atom?
[ Mark  May 04, 2019 ]

The best-sounding bookshelf speaker I've tried with this is the Wharfedale Diamond 12.2.

Mine drives a pair of B&W 600 speakers indoors and a pair of B&W AM-1 speakers outdoors. I'm very pleased with the sound.
[ Douglas  May 04, 2019 ]
If you want to keep it British and the room is not too huge then a pair of Harbeth P3 ESRs will do nicely. An other brand to consider is Focal. I find the Klipsch and Polk offerings very bright. Detailed at the cost of warmth.

? does this send Bluetooth to my Bluetooth speakers and the usb does it have drivers for windows 10 to use as a sound source to play music and sound from my games
[ ROCKY  Apr 10, 2018 ]
1 answer
It does NOT have a USB input. Also, the BlueTooth is only for input...It will not transmit BlueTooth signals to external speakers; however, you can connect passive speakers to this device.
