Naim Uniti 1 v Uniti Lite

Hello, The Naim Uniti Lite sounds very interesting. Excuse the pun.

I have spotted the Naim Uniti 1 24/192 for sale at a reduced price. So the question is how does the Uniti 1 24/192 compare to the Uniti Lite?

RE: Naim Uniti 1 v Uniti Lite

:roll: Hi, CraigDS, I've gone for a Uniti 1 at a reduced price, ex dem, low running hours, which was offered at lower price than the lowest priced  Lite, but it will be brought up to full spec by Naim. It also has FM/DAB/internet capability as standard, whereas the Lite offers it as an extra cost option. The review of the Lite sounds tempting, and compared to the Uniti 2 it is. Expect opinion will be divided as to whether the CD mechanism is better on the Uniti than the Lite, but guess it's a bit too early for any informed info on this matter.

If you can get the Uniti 1 for less than the Lite sans radio tuners, and have it brought up to the spec of the last Uniti 1, which cost £2400+, then go for it; asuming you want radio capability, of course.

 

Haven't got mine yet, unfortunately, it's still with Naim, so don't know how it'll sound in my system, but have high expectations. Laughing

I think the Uniti Lite comes with internet radio as standard, the FM/DAB an additional module.

The Uniti 1 has 24/192, DAC & 50w power. The UnitiLite has 24/192, DAC & 50w power. I just want to know what one has the better specified components? The CD drawer is only a convenience for me.

RE: Naim Uniti 1 v Uniti Lite

You're correct, DIB. The Lite is thinner than the Uniti, too. Presumably the drawer is to keep costs down, but can't comment on the amp/DAC/CDP component differences.

All this is a lot of money. Can we have an independent test institute rank the players? As I understand it from reviews, Uniti2 is required to get decent sound. SuperUniti will give analog resistor volume control also, but reviews tend to rank SuperUniti and Uniti2 on par.

Not out for another 3 to 4 weeks according to my retailler on Tuesday. Production seems to be a bit, er, light.
