UPnP™ (UNIVERSAL PLUG ‘N’ PLAY)
Serve your music to as many as 12 Uniti all-in-one players or other Naim streamers with up to 32 bits/384 kHz. Uniti Core will scan the network for shared audio files, including your iTunes library.
Create bit-perfect copies of your CDs, store them internally or to a USB-connected storage device and play them back via Uniti Core (external DAC or digital-input amplifier required).
