Headphone Paradise Attained: The Naim Uniti Atom Headphone Edition Headphone Amplifier Is a 'Next-Level Performer' Offering Versatility and Easy Control
The Naim Uniti Atom Headphone Edition can transform any space into your own stellar-sounding audio cocoon. With this robust headphone amplifier, you can reach a pristine headphone paradise, with no distractions, and no complications. Typical headphone amplifiers require tethering to a computer, but the Uniti Atom Headphone Edition contains all the brainpower needed for endless hours of transformative listening sessions. This powerful, elegant box is a headphone amplifier, DAC, and streamer combined. Plus, it's easy to use, thanks to Naim's exclusive streaming platform.
This headphone-optimized version of the multi-award-wining Uniti Atom features balanced 4-pin XLR and 4.4mm (Pentaconn) outputs and a 6.3mm output. Plus, it is compatible with an array of headphones and can soar with many different premium bands. You can keep up to three headphones plugged in and switch from pair to pair — depending on what you're listening to and when.
The all-in-one Naim Uniti Atom Headphone Edition also makes it easy to access your own digital music library, stream tracks from Qobuz, TIDAL, Apple Music, and Spotify, or dial in your favorite radio stations and podcasts. You can wirelessly stream directly from all your devices via Apple AirPlay 2 and Chromecast built-in. Plus, it's easy to connect other sources, including turntables and USB drives. And, of course, you can curate all these choices via the convenient Naim app.
For added flexibility, when you want to listen out loud, the Uniti Atom HE also excels as a compact streaming preamplifier: Just add active speakers, or a power amplifier and speakers, and you've got a sleek system.
The Naim app (available for Apple and Android devices) makes it simple to control your Uniti Atom Headphone Edition, and even link up other music systems around your home into a stunning multiroom setup.
Like all Music Direct products, the Naim Uniti Atom Headphone Edition headphone amplifier comes with the 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee.
"[It] combines wide-ranging network and streaming audio capability with both balanced and single-ended headphone outputs, and it can also be used as a streaming preamp into a power amplifier or active speakers."

"[The] Naim Uniti Atom Headphone Edition excels at every function it offers. It is a superb headphone amplifier, to be sure, [and] ... its performance as a line-stage preamplifier, and digital hub, needs to be heard to be believed.... [This] has to be the best compact yet high-performance digital hub going.... Brilliant."
—TONEAudio, Product of the Year award
"[We] can't help getting up from our listening position to roll the large on-unit volume rotary dial, the centerpiece of a design that is lovely to use.... The Atom HE is a clear descendent of the Atom, the strong gene pool characterized by impressive insight, dynamism and musicality. But thanks to the developments Naim has made to justify the existence of a headphone edition, the new model is a next-level performer in more ways than one.... [For] anyone looking to unleash the potential of a premium pair of headphones with a multifaceted streaming system, either to use purely as a desktop centerpiece or to also slip into an existing hi-fi system, it's bound to hit the spot."
—What Hi-Fi?, five-star review
"The Atom HE sounds magnificent across a range of musical styles and partnering headphones, combining fine detail, power and control. It's even a respectable streaming preamp, too."
