Naim Audio Software Updates: Easier ways to enjoy your favourites

11 August 2020

Users of the latest generation Naim music-streaming products will receive software updates that will make it easier to find, manage and enjoy your favourite music, radio stations and playlists on your system.

Released today on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, the Naim App update combines a range of new functionalities for users of:

  • Mu-so 2nd Generation & Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation
  • Uniti Atom, Uniti Star, Uniti Nova
  • ND5 XS2, NDX 2 and ND 555

Here are the key enhancements:

NEW! Favourites Browser – available from todayFind your favourites via a new dedicated source in the Naim app.

The Favourites ‘Star’ icon now sits alongside all your other sources (Spotify, TIDAL, Qobuz and Bluetooth).

Selecting the Favourites icon directs you to a list of all your favourites, by category (favourite artists, albums, playlists etc). The first 8 items in each category are shown first; select ‘More’ to see the full list. You can then further sort and filter your favourites – for example, sorting by Date Added, or filter by Qobuz.


UPDATED: Home Screen Favourites – available from today

We have added more functionality to thee Home Screen Favourites view on the lower half of the App home screen – a popular shortcut to your listening enjoyment.

The most recently added Favourites are now displayed first. For Playlists, the most recently modified are displayed first; the dedicated Playlists view also now includes all your playlists, with icons to show their source.

Improved synchronisation keeps your Favourites list up to date; on Android devices you can also manually refresh your list with a quick screen pull down on that section. Finally, Home Screen Favourites will now include a Presets section – see more below.


UPDATED: Preset options – available after Firmware update in early August

Unlike Favourites, which are all App-based, Presets are also accessible via the illuminated dial of your Mu-so and Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation or the front-panel buttons of your Uniti Atom, Star or Nova streaming system, plus NDX 2 and ND 555 streaming players.

The Home Screen Favourites view has a Presets tab; now you can find them in the new Favourites Browser too. Simply drag and drop your Presets to arrange them in your desired order.

On Mu-so 2nd Generation products running software v4.2 or higher.

You can choose up to 5 Presets from your favourite Internet Radio stations or Spotify playlists. The App neatly mirrors your Mu-so 2nd Generation’s illuminated dial to map the position of each Preset.

On Uniti Atom, Star or Nova systems, plus ND 5 XS2, NDX 2 and ND 555 players running software version 3.5 or higher.

You can create unlimited numbers of Presets from your favourite Internet Radio Stations, or Qobuz, Spotify and Tidal playlists, albums and tracks. Scroll through your Presets arrange your Presets in the App.
