I currently have an NDX in my main system that’s reading from a NAS however I’m having some issues with it dropping the connection. I’m thinking the problem might be the NAS (it’s a WD and I read people have had all sorts of trouble) so considering upgrading the NAS. I also have a zone two in another part of my house that is already wired in with speakers so been considering getting a second amp to drive zone two with rca connection to the NDX. I can get a Unitiqute 2 for a reasonable price and wondering if it can solve both of my problems. Here’s what I’m suggesting:
- Connect the Unitiqute 2 to zone two and control it using the Naim app.
- All of my music is stored on an external SSD so connect that to the Unitiqute 2 via USB.
- Here’s where the question comes in…will the NDX recognize the external SSD connected to the Unitiqute 2 the same as it would from a NAS and operate it as if it’s streaming from a NAS vs USB? The reason I ask is when playing from USB the NDX doesn’t show integration with Tidal to display other albums by the artist but when streamed from the NAS it does which is a great feature that I want to keep. I called my local Naim rep and they said good question but didn’t know the answer so suggested I contact Naim. Before I try that I’m guessing someone here can answer my question.
