Naim Uniti Atom

Shipping the Atom!

25 July 2017

In a breakthrough arguably as monumental to some as that of Ernest Rutherford’s to science, Naim Audio have at last conquered all barriers and shipped the Uniti Atom.

The £1,750 Atom is the first of Naim’s new Uniti series to arrive, effectively replacing the UnitiQute. It’s a compact, multi-source, high resolution network music player with integrated amplification. Ready to rock with TIDAL, Spotify, AirPlay, AptX Bluetooth, Internet Radio and of course your own stored music.

Like all the new Uniti range, the central aspect of it’s design is a completely new streaming platform and redesigned circuitry with significantly greater on-board memory and improved wireless connectivity. Plus, you can play direct from USB and use Atom as a server for other Uniti products which is quite neat. Add the new intuitive Naim App and we have quite a proposition. Roll on Uniti Star and Nova.

Glued to our Turntable July

On our decks this month

24 July 2017

It’s been a busy month of gigs for Adventures in Hi-fi. Again.

Live music often influences what we listen to in the shop and this month some of our live highlights have been Radiohead at Old Trafford and James at Castlefield Bowl so The Bends and Laid have been glued to our turntable.

Plus, we just can’t get enough of The Beatles – Sgt. Pepper remaster and we’re still battering Whitney – Light Upon the Lake from last year, with a bit of The Charlatans – Different Days thrown in too.

It’s going to take something special to pry these from our turntable!

Here’s a little something we made earlier

18 July 2017

One of our favourite things to do at Adventures is build turntables. It’s not quite as much fun as listening to them, but it’s mighty close. And this Michell Orbe was certainly a challenge.

So we thought we would share a couple of pics of our latest creation. Painstakingly re-built from scratch, our customer provided the parts; we provided the genius.

Here’s just some of the features integral to the Orbe:

  • Double chassis, suspended pendulum subchassis
  • Damped subchassis
  • 60 mm thick massive high inerta acrylic/vinyl platter
  • Screw-down record clamp, compatible with standard and 180g audiophile pressings
  • Inverted oil-pumping bearing
  • Custom arm board
  • High-quality standalone DC motor with tacho feedback speed control
  • Orbe Controller NC motor power supply with Never-Connected circuit

Phew!

ProAc Response DT8

NEW ProAc Response DT8: matching material to music

17 July 2017

ProAc loudspeakers are well known for meticulous attention to detail in selecting diaphragm materials for their drive units; cone movement is of course what creates sound so arguably the most important feature of any speaker. The new Response DT8 goes one step further, matching cone material to frequency for each drive unit.
