Naim is a name that high-end audio lovers are very familiar with and the company just announced the Uniti Atom Headphone Edition amplifier. A gorgeous, no doubt heavy box of tricks, this thing isn't your typical headphone amplifier – as Naim is keen to point out.
Kicking things off is the fact this amplifier doesn't need a computer to work – it is a computer, complete with support for Apple's AirPlay 2.
On top of that, and because this is more than an amplifier, Naim says the Uniti Atom Headphone Edition will happily stream music from Apple Music and other streaming services.
Sounds sweet, right? It really does, and it should – the whole shebang is available now costing almost $3,300. Yikes. You can read more about its capabilities over on the Naim website right now.
