Naim Uniti Core firmware update 2.5.3

21 August 2020

Naim Uniti Core firmware update with release 2.5.3 is now live and available. This release delivers the following:

  • Support for drives up to 8TB
  • Support for sorting of playlists by creation date
  • UPnP server now has folders containing content that the user has added as favourites via the Naim app (requires app .17 release)
  • Support for reading exFAT formatted file systems. This allows disks formatted with exFAT to be scanned and used as a source for music import.

It also improves:

  • Network share discovery
  • General stability

And, it delivers fixes to address:

  • Scheduled backups occasionally not running
  • Disk initialisation occasionally failing when re-initialising an already formatted hard drive
  • Slow initialisation of NTFS file systems on large hard drives
  • Network shares being intermittently discovered in some network setups
  • Core shared network folders not always being seen by macOS 10.15 Catalina
  • Some large hard drives initialised as an HFS Music Store occasionally not mounting on a Mac
  • Deleting an album that is comprised of tracks in the root of the downloads folder (i.e not in any folders), occasionally causing the /Downloads folder to become unavailable
  • The same artwork being shown for multiple albums
  • Restoration of backup to local store
  • Some NAS drives moving files to the recycle bin failing on the first attempt
