Naim’s Uniti Atom, Nova and Star was pegged to get AirPlay 2, and now it has landed. The firmware update also makes way for Naim’s new radio module.

Apple’s tech enables you to play music directly from an Apple source either individually or in a multi-room stylee with other AirPlay 2-compatible kit. Also, with AirPlay 2, you get improved audio buffering, integration with Siri voice control and multiple control access across iOS devices.

Additionally, Naim has introduced an optional DAB/FM module for the Uniti Star and Nova systems that further bolsters the unit’s internet radio, UPnP network streaming, and Bluetooth chops. All of that is on top of the Nova and Star’s built-in Spotify, Tidal and Chromecast support along with their healthy range of analogue and digital inputs.

As of right now, existing Uniti Star and Nova owners can get the new radio module fitted through a retailer for just £149 (€179/$199).

However, if you are about to pull the trigger on a shiny new Uniti, you’ll get the opportunity to tick the DAB/FM radio option for an extra £149.

Owners of the new Uniti streamers can enable AirPlay 2 functionality by updating its firmware and ensuring their Apple device is on iOS 11.4 or later, or using a MAC or PC with iTunes 12.8 or later.
