Naim Audio Uniti Serve 2TB Cd Ripper with DAC-V1
Good condition. No box.
Like the HDX it offers bit-perfect ripping, the ability to serve music to a wide range of compatible devices, control via the n-Serve iOS app and, of course, all the performance for which our network-connected products are widely famed.
If you already own a large digitally stored music collection or plan to rip more than the 2,400-CD capacity of a regular UnitiServe, consider the UnitiServe-SSD version. It offers all the functionality of the UnitiServe but substitutes its standard 2TB internal hard disk for a 16GB solid-state drive, sufficient to ensure smooth and fast browsing of your content. Your music collection can then reside on an external network-attached- storage device, or NAS, allowing access to as much storage as your budget or needs could ever reasonably require.
Bit-perfect CD ripping to internal 2TB hard disk, sufficient for 2,400 CDs in uncompressed form
Supports a broad range of music formats: WAV, FLAC, Apple Lossless, AIFF, AAC, Windows Media-formatted files, Ogg Vorbis and MP3
Naim Audio Desktop Client, supporting browsing of music files, player set-up and more via PC
Naim Audio Extended Music Database delivers track-level resolution for music browsing and selection
Naim Audio Network Scanning discovers all playable music and accompanying data on networked PC and Mac computers
Naim Audio UPnP server streams audio to any compatible UPnP device, such as NaimUniti 2
24bit/192kHz playback and storage
Allows local playback when used with Naim Audio DAC or digitally-equipped amplifier
vTuner 5* full-service internet radio
iOS n-Serve app for intuitive control
The DAC-V1’s compact size makes it perfectly suited as a desktop companion to your Mac or PC, but its exceptional musicality means it will complement our standard-width hi-fi components just as well. Combine it with our UnitiServe hard disk music server and its matching NAP 100 power amplifier and you’ll create a stunning hi-fi system from just three compact boxes.
High-speed asynchronous USB input up to 24bit/384kHz
Five S/PDIF inputs for digital sources like games consoles, set top boxes and hard disk servers
Selectable fixed or variable analogue outputs (DIN or RCA)
Naim Audio digitally controlled analogue volume control for performance and precision 40bit SHARC DSP chip handling filtering and oversampling
Single-ended class-A headphone amplifier output
Digital audio isn’t just about the data – 0s and 1s – and ensuring that each sample value is accurately converted into a corresponding output voltage. Also vital to achieving the highest fidelity is ensuring that each successive sample is reproduced at a precise time interval from those around it. If that time interval varies – an effect known as jitter – then the output waveform will be distorted. To prevent this, the master clock that controls the process should, ideally, be placed right next to the digital to analogue converter circuitry, not remote from it. Asynchronous mode USB provides for this because it allows data to be ‘pulled’ from the source as required, whereas in other modes the data is ‘pushed’ down the interface under control of the far inferior and distant clock in the computer.
World class headphone amplifier
The single-ended Class-A headphone amplifier of the DAC-V1 cleverly uses the pre-amp output amplifier for headphone drive. The moment headphones are plugged in, the output current drive is automatically turned up five times to give dynamic drive for all headphone impedances. The amplifier runs from a high voltage power supply so has the ability to drive high impedance headphones with the voltage swing they require for open and dynamic sound. The result is the audio stages are kept as simple and pure as possible for both normal and headphone modes.
