Naim Unveils Tidal Lossless Streaming Support

Tuesday, 29 September 2015  |  Gary


unvieling NAIM'S NEW FIRMWARE UPDATE TO SUPPORT TIDAL Lossless STREAMING On thEIr streaming products

"We’re delighted to be able to share our plans for two major updates which enable native support for TIDAL lossless streaming on all Naim streaming products and include a host of other new features and improvements."

           

The TIDAL streaming service will now be available natively from Naim streaming products. Using the Naim App for iOS and Android devices, users will now be able to select TIDAL as an input from the home screen. This will offer full access to TIDAL and its library of millions of songs in lossless CD quality. The interface is integrated into the Naim app, making for a seamless playback experience.

Naim are able to offer a free 90 day trial to existing and new owners of compatible Naim streaming products. Customers will be prompted to claim their free trial via the Naim App when selecting the new TIDAL input. 

What’s New?

Streamer Firmware Version 4.4 will enable native support for TIDAL on Naim's two-channel all-in-one players, network players and streaming preamplifiers.

Mu-so Firmware Version 1.3 will enable native support for TIDAL on Naim's Mu-so® wireless music system alongside four new features already offered by their core range. This includes support for gapless playback, Seek2Time via the Naim App, a new alarm clock feature and multiroom master capability. 

Mu-so Multiroom

Following the new firmware update Mu-so will be able to act as a master in a Naim multiroom system where previously it could only be a client player. Now you can play music between up to five Mu-so wireless music systems in perfect sync via the Naim app without other two-channel Naim streaming products.

Mu-so will also benefit from further features already available from two-channel Naim products. Gapless playback, a new alarm clock feature that can be set via the ‘Set- tings’ menu on the Naim App and Seek2Time have all been introduced alongside support for the new HLS format used by higher-resolution BBC iRadio stations.

The Naim App Update

An update to the Naim App will be available at the same time as the two new firmware updates go live. It has been updated to accomodate for the new features and includes the option of a volume slider on the bottom bar which can be activated via the ‘Settings’ menu.

Compatibility of Older Products*

Original NaimUniti and UnitiQute models and early NDX models are compatible with this new update but will only gain the new features (HLS BBC Radio support, TIDAL, Alarm Clock) if they are 24bit/192kHz capable.

You can check if your product is 24/192 capable by entering the Setup menu using the front panel or remote control. Then go to Factory Settings > System Status and scroll to > BC SW. If the version number displayed starts ‘3D’ you have the latest hardware. If it displays anything else then you will need to up- grade your hardware to benefit from new features.
