The Uniti Nova Power Edition is a one-box music-streaming system powerful enough to drive the most demanding loudspeakers to fill large spaces, thanks to Naim’s incorporation of the finest class D amplification technology. Designed and engineered in Britain, this new Power Edition (PE) is a feat of 50 years of engineering innovation and excellence in sound.

The new Uniti Nova PE condenses 150 watts (into 8Ω and 250W into 4Ω) of power into an exquisitely crafted, brushed aluminium box that delivers room-filling sound. The design of the Uniti Nova PE is an evolution of the original Uniti Nova, and the product remains as simple to control via the ZigBee bi-directional remote (no line of sight required) and/or the Focal & Naim application on your smartphone or tablet.

The Nova Power Edition offers all the features and sophistication that have won the Uniti series global acclaim. Indeed, Uniti Nova PE uses Naim’s latest NP800 low-noise streaming card to masterfully handle internet radio stations and music streaming services – including Spotify Connect, Apple Music, Tidal and Qobuz – plus offers easy connection to your devices via Bluetooth aptX HD, Apple Airplay 2, and Chromecast. It also supports UPnP technologies and Roon Ready solutions in high-resolution files up to 32bit/384kHz.

It’s easy to connect to your TV via HDMI ARC to enhance your audio-visual experience and allow you to control the volume via your TV’s remote control. If you’re using a network of Naim streaming products at home, the multiroom feature in the Focal & Naim application allows ease of control over multiple music and streaming services via a single interface. For sharing the same music throughout your home network (up to six devices), use the Party Mode function in the app to easily control the playlist, independent device volume and more.

When it comes to the incorporation of technology used in the Uniti Nova PE, Naim is again at the forefront with its use of class D amplification; having taken up the challenge and pushed the technology to its limits. Over the last 70 years class D has significantly improved, due to refined modulation techniques and faster power devices. Today, class D can be found in many amplifiers and in the majority of pro-touring, battery-powered and car amplifiers.

Naim has previously used class D amplifiers where appropriate, such as in the Mu-so, QB, and Bentley Motors products. The Nova PE now offers a Uniti option, capable of driving powerful loudspeakers (tuned with Sopra speakers from Focal, and up to Scala Utopia) in large rooms to high sound pressure levels without compromising on the characteristic Naim sound. With the Nova PE, Naim has continued with its tradition of pushing technological boundaries to find a fine balance between the power of the amp, and the high-fidelity audio quality so closely associated with Naim electronics. Naim has worked to fully integrate industry-leading class D amplification directly onto their impressive Nova circuit boards, culminating in their most efficient, powerful, and ecological streaming all-in-one product to date.

The Naim Uniti Nova PE will be available in February 2024 at £8,600 / €10.000 / $10,000 (US).
