Where do you store your CD collection?
On shelves? In a cupboard? Sometimes scattered, on the floor? With UnitiServe-SSD, every CD you own can be stored, catalogued and ready to play at the press of a key, the click of a mouse or the touch of an iPhone.
UnitiServe-SSD is a compact, slot-loading, CD ripping, hard disk music player and server based on the technology of the multi-award-winning Naim HDX. It takes the fundamentals of the HDX; a solid state drive, Naim bit-perfect ripping, Ethernet connection, UPnP server, StreamNet technology and local digital outputs, and combines them with a set of features perfectly suited to music in the home of today, and tomorrow.
A variant of the UnitiServe – the UnitiServe-SSD has no internal hard-disk storage and is intended for use in network systems where ripped data is stored exclusively on NAS drives.
All things to all music lovers
An audio system can grow around UnitiServe-SSD. It can replay ripped CDs into a digital input-equipped amplifier or a digital to analogue converter like Naim’s DAC, for example, with all the engaging Naim musical insight, musical performance and clarity you would expect. In addition the UnitiServe-SSD can operate as a UPnP server to stream audio to any UPnPTM playback device over a home network, such as NaimUniti or UnitiQute, to create a simple and fantastic sounding multi-room system. And for those wanting to put sound quality at the centre of whole-home control, UnitiServe-SSD is StreamNet-enabled and can also function as the heart of a sophisticated IP-based NaimNet* multi-room system. However you choose to use UnitiServe-SSD, it can be controlled by an iPhone or iPod touch device running the dedicated Naim n-Serve app, a touch screen, or a computer anywhere on the home network either via a web browser or the Naim Desktop Client application.
UnitiServe-SSD is not just limited to CD format audio or its internal storage. It can also play back audio from a USB memory stick and will scan the network for music stored on NAS drives or network shares in WAV, AIFF, FLAC, ALAC, OGG Vorbis, AAC, WMA and MP3 formats at up to 24bit/192kHz resolution.
Welcome to the future
UnitiServe-SSD brings very high performance hard disc music player and music server technology into the realms of affordable high end audio. It is one of the most versatile and liberating products ever to have worn the Naim logo.
