Naim Qobuz update

Naim is delighted to announce the imminent availability of native Qobuz support to its award-winning music streaming family. Enabled via a free over-the-air firmware upgrade, the update will enable Naim owners to enjoy seamless access to Qobuz streaming services - including true high-resolution streaming up to 24-bit/192kHz quality - from within the Naim control app.

Qobuz offers the most comprehensive CD-quality music catalogue currently available and the largest selection of albums in true high-resolution studio quality. Its streaming services are currently available in 12 countries, including theUS, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland and Luxembourg.

The Naim Qobuz update is scheduled to be released next week for owners of Uniti Atom, Star and Nova systems, plus ND5 XS2, NDX 2 and ND 555 network players. An update for Naim Mu-so 2nd Generation and Naim Mu-so Qb2nd Generation wireless speakers will follow in Spring 2020 (in the meantime, owners of the speakers can enjoy Qobuz in up to 24bit/96kHz quality via Chromecast). To enjoy Qobuz streaming services, users will need a Qobuz subscription: 30-day free trials will be available via a link in the Naim app.


A quick update for those of you excitedly waiting for our upcoming native streaming support for Qobuz. In final pre-release testing, we found a couple of firmware bugs we need to fix before we go live. Of course, this is exactly why we conduct extensive testing before we release software updates.

Progress on a fix is going well, and the firmware update will be ready during the week commencing 10th February. In preparation, we will release the necessary app update (for iOS and Android) this week.

Thank you for your patience – we can assure you it is a firmware update worth waiting for!
