Naim Uniti Atom & KEF LS50 Meta (Carbon Black)
Good things come in small packages
It might be small, but that doesn’t prevent the Naim Uniti Atom from packing in a top quality 40 watt amp, class-leading music streamer and a whole host of connectivity. Perfect as a high-end system in its own right or as part of Naim’s impressive multi-room audio, just add speakers for a breath-taking audio experience.
Award-winning Naim sound quality
Unlike most small systems, the Uniti Atom is built to the same standards as high-end hi-fi. This means hand-wired digital and analogue circuitry for low distortion, aluminium casing and heatsinks for rigidity and vibration resistance and an oversize, toroidal power transformer for ample power. With 40 watts per channel, the Uniti Atom is happy partnering most speakers and fills all but the largest of rooms with Naim’s typically upbeat and involving sound.
Ultimate music streamer
With Naim’s award-winning music-streaming platform at its heart, the Uniti Atom delivers the finest audio. Developed by 25 engineers, over three years and featured in their flagship, £20,000 ND555 streamer, nothing competes for ease of use and quality. Simply download the Naim app and take control of all your music-streaming needs.
Stream music your way
Whichever way you stream your music, the Uniti delivers. With direct access to Spotify Connect (Premium Spotify account required), Tidal and thousands of Internet radio stations, you can enjoy near limitless music. Chromecast is built-in, seamlessly linking to hundreds of supporting apps, such as Deezer, Qobuz and SoundCloud. If you prefer to stream within your own network, UPnP (Universal Plug n’ Play) is also supported – right up to High Resolution 32 bit/384 kHz files.
AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth
Stream music from your Apple device or iTunes with AirPlay 2 and you’ll not only hear your music library or favourite music service but also take advantage of Apple’s multiroom system. Alternatively, for a quick and easy link for anyone in the room, link a smartphone by Bluetooth and share the music instantly.
As well as Apple’s AirPlay 2, the Uniti Atom offers two other ways to go multiroom. Either go Google or, better still, use the Naim app to link up all your compatible Naim products. The slick Naim app then lets you listen to the same music all around your home or different music in different rooms. The latest Uniti range is also Roon Ready for enhanced music searching.
Transform your TV’s sound
Amongst its many features, the Uniti Atom also comes with an HDMI ARC socket. This is the ideal connection for a TV, giving your TV the potential for a huge boost in sound. Now you can get a massive upgrade to your TV’s sound as well as music playback, without the need for separate soundbar or sound base.
The centre of your system
As well as HDMI, the Unit Atom also comes with a wide range of inputs. Twin USB sockets (front and rear) are ideal for connecting temporary and permanent media devices. You can store up to 20,000 tracks to a local USB connected device, making this the ideal way to access your digital music library. Three digital inputs are perfect for sources such as a CD/DVD/Blu-ray player, games console and TV set-top box, while the analogue RCA input is ideal for a turntable (with pre-amp built-in).
As well as a handy headphone output, the Uniti Atom also features a preamp RCA output. This can be used for a wide choice of options, including connecting your choice of active subwoofer, connecting an upgrade power amp or simply using the Uniti Atom as a stand-alone music streamer in your existing hi-fi.
Unlike most music systems, the Uniti Atom is a delight to use, even without the control app. The precision volume control is based on the mega-bucks Statement amp and is a joy to use. Offering ultra-smooth rotation and clear visual segment lighting, it’s probably the volume control you’ll be using the most. Typical of Naim’s attention to detail, the volume control also incorporates the Bluetooth antenna for a seamless style.
Full colour display
Featuring a full-colour display, the Uniti Atom provides rich images of artwork and content. The comprehensive display also shows input information, music metadata and more. Fitted with proximity sensors, the screen ‘wakes’ as you approach.
Don’t compromise on sound or style – with the Naim Uniti Atom you get it all.

Improving an icon
Launched in 2011, the original KEF LS50 was a smash-hit from day one. The new KEF LS50 Meta takes all the award-winning ingredients of the original and introduces new technology for sensational sound quality.
Hear the sound, just as it should be, with MAT
Developed in conjunction with Acoustic Metamaterials Group, the LS50 Meta makes use of an exciting new technology called MAT (Metamaterial Absorption Technology). The revolutionary material absorbs 99% of unwanted sound from the rear of the tweeter, for lower distortion and a much purer, more natural sound.
Legendary Uni-Q drive units deliver studio quality sound
KEF’s history includes making some of the most precise-sounding monitor speakers. Used in recording studios around the world, KEF-branded speakers and other brands using KEF drive units are behind so many classic mixes. Now in its 12th generation, the Uni-Q driver array places the revised tweeter within the middle of the woofer, creating a more cohesive sound. The magnesium/ aluminium woofer is light and rigid – making it fast to respond and entirely faithful to the music playing.
Although some monitor speakers can sound clinical to listen to, this is not the case with the KEF LS50 Meta. The super-rigid cabinet features a curved compound front baffle. Combined with the tweeter’s ‘tangerine’ wave-guide, this helps spread the sound far out into your room – making listening to these speakers an enveloping experience, wherever you’re sitting in the room.
Punchy, lifelike bass
For such small speakers, the LS50 Metas hit hard. Thanks to Z-Flex surrounds, the woofers move across an extended range, giving deep, powerful bass. More important than just being ‘deep’, the bass is extremely well controlled and lifelike. The computer-aided design of the rear port promotes flow and reduces turbulence – meaning the bass sounds fast and accurate.
A design classic
Just as enduring as the sound, the LS50 Meta’s design has similar long-lasting appeal. The smooth, clean design is striking yet still easy on the eye. Choose between Carbon Black, Mineral White, Titanium Grey or Royal Blue, for the style that best suits you.
