Heavyweight sound

Don’t be fooled by the size of the UnitiLite. Behind its slimline fascia it incorporates several technologies and techniques used in high-end Naim electronics that allow it to deliver music with real energy and clarity. Its DAC chip is a close relative of the device employed in the high-end NDX streamer and its power amplifier design is informed by the classic techniques fundamental to the Naim sound. With 50W of power per channel, UnitiLite is more than capable of filling most rooms with the signature toe-tapping, spine tingling sound on which we’ve built our reputation.
