yep i had a call from Audio Room, Hull sayin they have one in now for demo, so hopefuly next week!
Can you tell us a bit more about your demo? did you use CDs or were you streaming?
Is at as good as a Nait 5i/CD5?
I'm tempted..........only if it sounds better than my Rega Brio r/Apollo r/DAC
Synology DS212j > Rega DAC > Rega Brio R > Rega RS3
Rega RP6 / Exact / Groovetracer SubPlatter
Chord Chameleon Plus / Rumour 2
Panasonic TX-P50 GT50 > BDP110e > Yamaha RX-V 667 > Rega Vox > Rega RS1
obviously you tested it a few weeks ago - how do you think it compares to the Rega set up above??
and how it compares to uniti 1 ? I hope it's not better than Rega boxes
I Mac , V-Link 2, Rega Dac , Brio R , RS5 , Chord cables
Squeezebox touch , Rega P3-24 , Ipad 4
My hunch is that it wont be, however the streaming feature is very attractive!
I have just got a Squeezebox Touch and streaming lossless from an iMac to the SBT then optical into the Rega DAC and its pretty damn good!
I would use SBT with naim unit anyway because of Spotify , and additional cost of phono preamp
so Unitilite must soud 1,5 x better but it will not be all in one anymore
have you got a turntable then?
thats another thing i need a phono stage to so really the Brio R is going to be hard to topple!
How you would compare Lite with SU?
SONY Bravia 32 EX723, Denon DBP2012UD, Naim UnitiQute, B&W685, Nac A5, Chord Active HDMI 1.4, Chord Crimson Plus
PLEASE PLEASE we need some feedback on how the unitilite actaully sounds please????
Probably an unfair comparison to the Cambridge gear but that's all I can compare with the same speakers...
needless to say it blows the CA out of the water. Expansive soundstage, tuneful taught bass and effortlessly musical. Very very naim which is fine by me .
i listened to cd, streaming via upnp, I radio and files from both my ipad via USB and also some high res files from a USB drive. All sounded excellent.
Love the way the nstream app controls everything too. Very neat user friendly way to listen to a vast array of sources.
I didn't compare it to any other kit but regardless it sounds fantastic, sod what reviews say and have a listen yourself, I'm sure most will love what it does.

i have read that, was hoping for real user views!
Not sure how real I am, but I could give you an IMHO if you want...
Andrew purely on SQ how does the UnitiLite fare against a Rega Brio r/Apollo r/DAC?
it made me tap my feet just as much as my main system does which is the main factor for me
