Naim UnitiServe
1.5TB music server in UnitiQute-sized box due on sale this summer

We've already reported on Naim's forthcoming UnitiQute wireless streaming system – due on sale mid-April – but tucked away in the Naim room here at Bristol was this clever little box of tricks.

Called the UnitiServe, it's a prototype music server in a UnitiQute-sized box. Inside the box is a 1.5TB hard drive to which you can rip CDs in full resolution, as well as store and play 24-bit/96kHz .wav files. A single CD takes about 6-7 minutes to copy.

It uses similar software to Naim's £4500 HDX system, and can be controlled from any web browser, via a laptop or an iPhone app.

You can browse music stored on the UnitiServe by album, artist, playlist or genre and content can also be transferred to a network attached storage device (NAS).

There's no price for the UnitiServe yet, but Naim expects it to be on sale by June/July this year.

More after the break

And if you want to hear the UnitiQute in action, it's being demonstrated in the Naim rooms here at the show (502, 506, 509).
