Hi Naim community members,
Recently after I checked the data of my internet router, I saw that the connection speed of my Uniti Atom through the Ethernet was estimated Low (100Mbit/s down and up) while it is excellent through WiFi (481 Mbit/s down and up). I changed the port on the router, and the Ethernet chord as well but the results are the same. Is the 100 Mbit/s connection speed normal while it is much higher through WiFi ? Is there any native technical limitation on the Uniti Atom Ethernet port ?
More generally speaking, does anyone know if there is a Uniti Atom user manual available, including technical specs, much more detailed than the Quick Start Guide provided by Naim ?
I think the Ethernet interface on the Atom - in common with all other Naim streamers - is designed to operate at 100Mbps. It’s more than adequate for audio streaming, and minimises the potential for electrical noise to mess things up.
Andy is correct, Naim, like many other brands, use 100Mb Ethernet on all their streamers because it’s more than enough for audio streaming, and uses less power than a Gb connection.
Sadly Naim abandoned the proper manuals in favour of a half-baked online support facility which you can find at the bottom of the product web page. It’s a poor substitute with errors and omissions that never seem to get corrected, but there is some useful information in there.
Without talking about user manuals: on the product page of the Atom the section on “Specifications” → “Show all specifications” has a good enough overview about HW specs.
(SW information may be outdated, when the devices have learned new features. E.g. Qobuz is missing on the Atom product page; we’re pretty sure larger USB sticks work, …)
Thank you all of you for your fast answers. Now I feel reassured given that I thought my Atom was damaged
PhilippVH You’re quite right. I found it in the specs. It clearly says that the Atom Ethernet operates on a 100 Mbps basis (see attached
Screenshot). The fact is that these specs are not available on the French version of this page.Lesson learned: Always check the original source
