Naim Uniti Nova Review

Introduction

Naim has a position in the high-end market and looking at the Naim Uniti Nova it is quite obvious it is. In my previous reviews of the Atom and the Atom HE I’ve also become acquainted with the Naim Uniti lineup. The Nova is just a bit different, how different?

Unboxing

Time to unbox the Nova.
Naim has not only supplied me with the Nova but also a multitude of Naim cables. I’ve put these next to the AudioQuest Type 9.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

NAIM UNITI NOVA

We’re accustomed to Naim’s ability of wrapping the amps tight and neatly. Besides the amp, manuals/booklets, remote control including 4 batteries, a dust cloth has also been provided.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

In a previous review of the Atom I got familiar with this remote. And to this day, I find this one of the coolest remotes to use for an audio system. The remote fits like a glove in your hand, but it also has lighting on it. It also shows audio levels on the remote itself by lighting up the round ring in the middle (Now for 3 quarters of the way) to show the loudness. Lifting the remote shows a mirroring effect of the current volume on the Uniti.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

The Nova just like how the Atom has done it is supplied with a EU and UK plug.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

And there is the amp, not only a big boy weighing 13 kilograms, it also looks stunning.

On the bottom left you can see Naim’s logo, which illuminates during use. USB port and headphone jacks. On the right side we can see 4 buttons that are able to start the Atom, play/pause music etc. The bottom two are designed for inputs and favorites. For example, you can look for certain radio stations on the Naim app and put these in your favorites. By pressing the button a few times, you can easily go back to listening to your favorite tunes or radio dj’s.

Higher up we can see one huge dial for the volume levels. Whilst turning the dial, it lights up, and even when you’re close with your hand it will illuminate.

And the cherry on top is the color display showing off everything. I’ll get back to you on that later on!

NAIM UNITI NOVA

Even the sides of the Atom are equipped with grills. These grills will ensure that the heat flows away from this class AB amplifier. And that seems to be working just fine. The amp does become warm during use, but not hot. If it was a class A amplifier, we would be seeing higher temperatures.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

NAIM UNITI NOVA

On the left side there is a connector for power and a connector for speakers. In order to actually connect them you’ll need banana plugs.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

The right side has the following connectors:
Audio Inputs
2 x Optical TOSLink (up to 24bit/96kHz )
2 x Coaxial RCA (up to 24bit/192kHz, DoP 64Fs)
1 x BNC (up to 192kHz, DoP 64Fs)
1 x HDMI ARC
2 x RCA
2 x 5-pin DIN
2 x USB Type A socket (front and rear)
1 x SD card

Audio Outputs
1 x Stereo power amplifier
1 x RCA sub/pre output

And don’t forget the internal Bluetooth and WiFi capabilities.
This Nova does not have the ability to utilize DAB/FM, but you can buy it separately.

The brushed steel has a very classic look.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

Time to get the Naim cables.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

NAIM UNITI NOVA

Just like the Atom & Atom HE, the Nova has a 5” color display that has a sensor detecting if you are nearby. Being close impacts how the screen reacts to you. Normally an image of the album shows with the artist/track information shown below.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

Getting closer to the Atom, more information is shown in the image below. Going further away it reverts again.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

Time to boot up the Nova. The first thing that you’re required to do is to put the remote near the Nova and press the home button.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

Now it’s time to open the app. In the chapter software I’ll walk through all the different kinds of screens that I had to click through.

Naim Uniti Atom vs Uniti Nova

In this review of the Nova, I have also been able to use the Atom to draw a nice comparison of both. And it is not only vital to listen to the differences, but also look at the different amount of connections/connectors available that both of them have.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

When it comes to depth and height, both don’t really differ from each other.

Focal & Naim

Just like my previous review of the Naim Uniti Atom I summoned back the Focal Chora 826.
Focal & Naim have been working together for quite a while, and that makes for a good dynamic duo. The amplifiers and speakers work in unison together, enabling you to get the maximum out of the both of them. The Nova has been used for a while with the Focal Sopra 2’s. And just like it was Christmas, I was able to play around with the Atom as well combined with the same said Sopra’s.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

NAIM UNITI NOVA

NAIM UNITI NOVA

NAIM UNITI NOVA

The difference between the Naim Uniti Atom & Nova can be heard clearly – on these kinds of speakers. The Atom is compact and has a lot of power, perfect for smaller end speakers like the Focal Kanta 1 or Bowers & Wilkins 704 S2 or 705 S2. The Sopra’s are a bit too much for the Atom, and you can hear that. Playing music, it sounds a bit more flat on parts of a track where you normally expect more power/tone differentials. The Nova truly draws out the best in the Sopra’s. The sound is fuller, and I can hear you think, what do you mean by fuller? Well, in short, the tone differentials aren’t as flat, the frequencies of any track you play get reached like they should. And even with speakers like this, you can always choose to have an end amplifier.
I will get back to this in a later chapter called music.

Software

If you don’t want to use the app at all, you can. Just the remote will suffice, however Naim has quite a good app that can also be used with other Naim products. In this chapter I will go through the software, since there are a lot of options grab something to drink..;)

NAIM UNITI NOVA NAIM UNITI NOVA

The app requests you to use the remote and link it. After that you can select the machine through the app, which needs a bit of configuration.

NAIM UNITI NOVA NAIM UNITI NOVA

A personal favorite of mine is me being able to use my iPhone 12 easily, within seconds i was able to configure the AirPlay-speaker settings, connecting it to my WiFi network as well.
Swiftly I configured the amp, following it up with selecting what room I’m in and I’m good to go!

NAIM UNITI NOVA NAIM UNITI NOVA

Opening the app the rooms are shown. You can set it up with multiroom for example, it syncs multiple speakers and amps together. This enables you to play music throughout the entire house at the same time. During the installation the app also checks the current firmware. You can also install this through the app which will take a while.

NAIM UNITI NOVA NAIM UNITI NOVA

You can also individually name your presets if you so wish to do so, or leave them to the standard presets.

NAIM UNITI NOVA NAIM UNITI NOVA

The Nova has a plethora of options, besides AirPlay(2) you can also make the amp a Chromecast player. This enables you to stream the audio to the Nova, which will in turn play it out of the speakers. Which is also integrated with Google apps, for example: ‘Hey Google, play my favorite radio station’. And that will be played through TuneIn.

The Nova can also function as a UPnP server. It’s possible to play music from a hard disk that is attached to the Nova, and play this through the network.

NAIM UNITI NOVA NAIM UNITI NOVA

After installing everything you’ll end up in the ‘homescreen’. After selecting the amp, of course.
The standard presets are as follows:
– Favorites
– Servers (Provided you have multiple UPnP-servers in your network.
– Internetradio
– USB
– Tidal
– Qobuz
– Spotify
– Analog 1
– Analog 2
– Analog 3
– Analog 4
– Digital 1
– Digital 2
– Digital 3
– Digital 4
– Digital 5
– HDMI

In the middle you can switch between;
– Presets
– Radio

All the way at the bottom under presets/favorites you can find your saved radio stations. These can be edited, added and configured in the way you want it to be.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

In the menu in the top left, the library, you can select the attached hard disk.
Within this menu, you can play and show the artists/albums.

The available formats are as follows:
WAV – up to 32bits/384kHz
FLAC and AIFF – up to 24bit/384kHz
ALAC (Apple Lossless) – up to 24bit/384kHz
MP3 – up to 48kHz, 320kbit (16 bit)
AAC – up to 48kHz, 320kbit (16 bit)
OGG and WMA – up to 48kHz (16 bit)
DSD – 64 and 128Fs
Notes: Gapless playback supported on all formats. All formats to 384kHz maximum over wireless network.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

And obviously you can configure the amp to your heart’s content. The following settings are able to be edited by the app:
– Stand-by
– Order of inputs (Good to have if you frequently use a certain input, like digital 1 or analog 1, put them first in the order for ease of access.)

NAIM UNITI NOVA

When it comes to streaming there’s a lot that the Naim Uniti series (Like the Atom) supports;
Chromecast Built-In, Qobuz, Apple Airplay, TIDAL, Spotify® Connect, Bluetooth (AptX HD), Internet Radio™, UPnP™ (hi-res streaming). And besides, the device is Roon Ready.

With Spotify, Tidal or anything else, you can look for a song, then select the Naim Uniti Atom – as speaker/output device – through the app.

The Naim app for mobile phones is stable and works without any problem. I haven’t had a single crash nor a single problem playing it through ‘external speakers’ on Spotify.

The cool thing about it is that the Naim Uniti Nova, just like the Atom, displays an album cover on the screen immediately. Whether it’s a podcast or a Spotify song.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

Like I’ve mentioned, the Nova is a Roon Ready Player. You can select the Nova from the Roon app, and play music from the amp, in high quality! If you so wish, you could combine it with Tidal to never hear the same songs again. A really cool feature.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

NAIM UNITI NOVA

As i said previously, you don’t necessarily HAVE to use the app. With a beauty of a remote like that you should be able to breeze through the menus with ease. And of course you can! You can select as follows:
– Playing now
– Spotify
– Radio
– USB
– Input (You can choose analog/digital or HDMI)
– Favorites (Radio stations that are under favorites/presets that can be accessed quickly)
– Bluetooth
– Settings

Settings I will elaborate on in the chapter software, they are quickly as follows:
– Language
– Network settings
– Bluetooth
– Factory settings
– Info

Say what you will, but it becomes abundantly clear that the volume changes through the massive volume dial. If you’d prefer seeing a clock there, there is an option for that.

With the remote control you are able to look at radio stations worldwide using internet radio. The app also shows the bitrate of each and every radio station.

Music & Movies

Audio will remain to be one of my great passions and favorite things to review. Music moves you, and engages you emotionally. As you might be well aware of. The listening experience can be enhanced by the way you listen to a piece of music. And at the end of the day it’s still a personal preference. Whether you love to listen through cabled iPhone earbuds, or through an expensive surround system.

Being involved with music from a young age (Primarily listening to it) I attempt to extend this passion to my next generation, my little girl of 1 year and 5 months now.
Listening to Classic, Blues, Jazz, Rock & Pop or EDM, not to mention a whole bunch of other genres. And sharing music and preferences is something incredibly fun.
Having a system that does that perfectly, and can be used by my friends is something else.
The Naim Uniti Nova hits the spot exactly. Having music played through the network it gives people the opportunity to play and share music through Spotify, Tidal and others. And having HDMI through HDMI-ARC to play it on your TV etc. is another huge plus.

Naim has experience as a contender on the market. I’ve had the opportunity to review the Mu-so 2nd Gen, Mu-so Qb 2nd Gen and the Uniti Atom. The Nova is the biggest boy of the Uniti series. In between the Atom and the Nova is the Uniti Star. In this case, the Nova is a Class AB amplifier. And that is why the finish on the side is like it is. The steel fins make sure the heat flows away nicely, due to them getting warm during use. Not hot. If it were to be an A class amplifier that uses loads of power, then it would get hot. And still you can hear it through this AB amplifier that the sound is very ‘warm’.

In a previous review I’ve mentioned the Denon X6400h flagship surround amplifier going to a Rotel amplifier. The difference was very noticeable, even on the same speaker set. My advice would be that if you are a listener, not in need of surround, to look for a stereo amplifier. The Denon was also a surround receiver jack of all trades, but my wife and I had to continually wind a movie or episode from a series back just to hear what was being said. And that got pretty annoying. Especially considering having a decent audio system with all the other speakers/surround options disabled. When I was able to rent a stereo amplifier on the exact same speakers I was shown a whole new world. It was a Class A amplifier that skyrocketed my energy bill and flickered the nights like an episode of Supernatural but still…The difference was very noticeable.

Funnily enough, the difference isn’t just heard between a stereo and surround amplifier. Even the stereo amplifier has a lot of difference when it comes to power output. And looping back to it, you can hear the difference between the Atom and the Nova on larger speakers such as the Focal Sopra 2’s that I’ve used.
In my previous review of the Naim Uniti Atom I used them with the Focal Chora 826 speakers and the Atom knew how to handle them well. If you go ‘bigger’ you will certainly need to invest in a good amplifier. More power = more sound. Which inevitably leads to…More money…
But how big is the difference? I’m going to show you through YouTube clips.
I’ve used clips from Tidal on higher bitrates, and in some instances I’ve formatted it in .flac.

Talking about bitrates, the analog inputs can be used to hook up an old vinyl player. And wow…I’ve enjoyed so many golden oldies that I’ve got laying around. Of course I had to play Above & Beyond (acoustic) and old Frank Sinatra records dating from 76’. Even Pink Floyd – The Wall dating from 79’ sounds amazing.

With the Audio Technica AT-LPW40WN record player on Analog 1 we can listen to some tunes. Like Sirens of the Sea from Above & Beyond.

NAIM UNITI NOVA

Besides the vinyl, I’ve used Roon and a USB-player on the Nova. And they all hit the spot. The Atom is perfect for less demanding speakers. The difference in audio with Boo Boo Davis – Undercover Blues or with Tony Bennett & Aretha Franklin – How Do You Keep The Music Playing is noticeable.

The Nova has more tunes, the sound is more complete and fuller. There’s more music to be heard in the moment it plays. And it adds a whole lot more color to the room you’re in.
Not just the Nova is able to do that, the Atom does as well. Like mentioned before, the Denon flagship containing all the surround options that I barely even use, making the change to a Rotel amp it was like walking into a room with all the lights on. Warm. And I’m embraced by that feeling again.

Being an avid fan of movies and tv shows, my wife binge more than we should. Like I said earlier in the first chapter, it would be required to at least hear what the actors are saying.
Luckily we don’t have that problem anymore due to it being crystal clear with this audio system. Which means we don’t have to blaze the audio up to levels the neighbors can enjoy too.

In my personal opinion, a TV’s sound is something important. In my current LG OLED the soundcard emits a decent amount for a TV, but it’s still not great. And that is something I really care about watching movies.
Seeing movies like Joker, John Wick 2 or 3 (For the umpteenth time) or any other movie that portrays loads of action, speech or drama, it is essential that the audio is able to enhance that feeling. It might sound weird, but I used to be an avid visitor of the cinema. And nowadays although costly, you’re able to bring the cinema to you. (Provided you know how to make popcorn!) And yes, it’s costly, but so are tickets and popcorn nowadays, so skip a movie a few times in the cinema, and you’ve got yourself an amp! (Maybe a bit more than a few, but you know where i’m going.. 🙂 )

Conclusion

Naim has provided us with the Uniti Nova ,a powerful all-in-one. Not only is it a treat to listen to, but it looks great as well. The Nova has a beautiful finish. A mantle piece, and it should be this good looking for its price as well. A feast for your eyes.

The Nova providing such a high amount of connections is a huge plus too. You can even draw out more power by hooking up an end amplifier through the pre-amp.
Like I’ve mentioned in this review, there’s also a FM/DAB+ variant available making it even easier for you to listen to radio. This variant of the Nova will set you back an extra 300 Euros. And looking at the internetradio accessibility on the Uniti series, that could be an option as well. And internetradio usually has a higher bitrate anyway, something you can definitely hear.

I couldn’t resist getting the Audio Technica vinyl player out of the closet and letting it rip. And that is something to truly enjoy as well. Pink Floyd – The Wall Dating 79’ or Frank Sinatra dating 76’ sound beautiful and warm. Putting the needle on newer records such as Above & Beyond – Sirens of the Sea or others, it becomes an experience. The speakers combined with the Nova orchestrate it excellently.

The app by Naim is easy to control and has everything except 1 option.
It can do internetradio, all the inputs, is incredibly stable and user-friendly, but I can’t fathom how it isn’t possible to set up an AirPlay password in the app. You’ll have to surf to the IP-address of the amp to set up a password, and that seems contradictory. I know I can do it, but having to explain it to my father is another thing. The second i tell him to surf to anything he’ll be at the beach, none the wiser and without any audio. [/sarcasm] There has got to be an easier way

The other cool thing is the fantastic remote that is being provided by Naim. Yes, you could do everything through the app, but the remote is insanely good. Illumination when you touch the remote, the integration of light on the Nova itself, not just a gimmick, it makes it user-friendly.

Music makes you move…Not a quote from myself, but i’ll keep rehashing it…And having said music played through a system like the Nova, it only enhances everything i want from audio.

And that’s the huge plus about an all-in-one. There’s a plethora of options that you can grow together with your device.
In my previous review of the Atom and Atom HE, you can see that there is a space for an end amplifier. With the Nova you are future proofed as well. And if the need arises that you need to upgrade your speakers, the Nova will provide. Until you’ve upgraded your speakers to a point that the Nova can’t do justice, but before that happens…We are talking about a very distant future…Financially as well!

The Naim Uniti Nova rightfully earns its 5 out of 5 stars. I admit, it’s not a cheap amplifier, but in my personal opinion having listened to it, seeing all the options and the device itself, it is worth it.
