By the way, besides CD formats and internal storage the UnitiServe also plays audio from USB memory sticks 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.

Being still relatively new to—and still not entirely comfortable with—the world of computer/streaming audio, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this pairing, as, frankly, I found the SuperUniti pretty impressive on its own. But sure enough, apparently due to the greater timing accuracy that results in having the signal arrive via a quality network, the SuperUniti/UnitiServe was markedly superior.

On the excellent 192/24 download of Cat Stevens’ Tea for the Tillerman, the Naim pair brought forth a greater sense of air and resolution, dynamic, tonal, and textural complexity, as well an increased sense of “thereness,” while at the same time sounding more relaxed but also more musically in step (if that makes sense).

Another download I’ve become enamored of is pianist Peter Schaaf’s recording of Albéniz’s Iberia. Over the SuperUniti alone this was an eye-opener—a magnificent-sounding reproduction of a piano. Teamed with UnitiServe the sound took on a greater sense of percussive weight, harmonic richness, and dynamic naturalness across the spectrum. This was one of those experiences where one feels as if the instrument has been dropped into your room (as opposed to you being taken to it). Impressive.

And given the excellence of UnitiServe’s CD ripping, storage, and playback, except for special editions or box sets I now embrace the notion of ridding oneself of the unsightly clutter caused by shelves and/or piles of those ugly, and all too breakable “jewel” cases.

In short, if one is committed to the highest levels of digital audio playback in its many guises, Naim’s outstanding work in these realms must be on your short list of component choices.
