Thanks Richard…will look out for the patch and meantime the work-around is working fine :+1:

WOW, thanks so much for the workaround. So easier to go via Tidal and add to collection than the search engine from Naim. I had the same problem, can’t search via Tidal now fixed by the nice trick. Thanks so much!!!

Yes it’s a good work around but it sounds like a bit of a c*ck-up was done somewhere between the Naim and Tidal code writers. It’s pretty poor to suddenly cut off functionality from (probably) thousands of legacy customers. Was no testing done over the whole range of products??? If a software upgrade on our MR scanners (Siemens…the best) suddenly removed some function (even with a work around) the prevebal poo would well and truly hit the fan and a fix would happen asap.
As it happens the Tidal search function probably is easier to use in some ways but pretty soon I’m gonna be scrolling down an almighty long list of favourites to find the tune I want. :joy::pray:
Having said all that I’m in a bit of audio heaven listening to my Superuniti playing through a lovely pair of AE1 classics at the mo…top Tidal jazz… I still love my Naim kit :heartpulse:

An update for Android (2.19.1) is now available in the Play Store that has a fix for Tidal searching on Legacy products. Apologies for any nuisance caused.


Thx for the update. Works well with the superuniti. However there seems to be a limit on the maximum shown albums. Not all Tidal available albums are shown at the Naim app even after expansion.

Fantastic thank you

Thanks for the fix. It works fine.
As mentionned, the only remaining limitation is the apparently limited number of albums the app can show.
As an exemple, the album Randori by Nik Bärtsch’s Ronin is not shown when looking at the artist, although accessible and playing fine from my favorites.

It’s not only about limitation of albums that app can show, the same limitation is for top tracks. Currently app can’t show more than 10 results for both top tracks and albums.

Ah that explains why I couldn’t find an album under an artist’s profile that I did find by searching for the album title.

@tomvamos here is one example:

Under Bruce Cockburn’s albums, The Charity of Night does not show:

But search for The Charity of Night and there it is:

@tomvamos do you plan to fix problem with album/top tracks display limits?

Hi @adamwwa, we do indeed, its in the backlog.

It seems fixed, I can see now all available albums.Thx for that !

So now the missing point is the error message on some albums as described in this thread also.

Hi @TomGroove, this should be fixed in the next release.

Thx for the quick answer ! Looking forward to it.

Any info on when tidal connect will be available?

It’s in the backlog and will be worked on soon.

I have another/same search issue with Tidal on my NAC272

  • search does not return results sometimes. Then I go to the Tidal ios app, do the same search, and it works. Then I tag the result as favorite and find it when I return back to Naim app. Working, but boring.
    Did this bug will be fixed in the next update? And do you know when?
    By the way, Thank you for making great products. I am an happy user of the standards series for years and it is a real pleasure.

Another issue.
It seems that with the Naim app’ you can’t search the whole catalog.
So, if I am looking for an artist that plays country as well as rock, or if I don’t know what genre he plays, then I have to select one genre, search, select another genre, search, and so on.
You can do a global search in the iOS Tidal app.
Could you add the same functionality on Naim app?
