Naim launches AirPlay 2-enabled Unity Atom Headphone Edition streaming device

British audio purveyor Naim has debuted its new Uniti Atom streaming system designed for use with headphones for the best overall sound — and it supports AirPlay 2.

This new Headphone Edition of the Uniti Atom aims to be the ultimate listening source. It differs from most DACs and headphone amps by handling all the streaming itself.

“We have designed this special edition of the mighty Uniti Atom to be the premium music streaming system for solo listening,” said Paul Neville, Naim Research & Development Director. “Just add headphones to escape into your own world of high-quality sound.”
