Uniti Atom - headphone connection

Hi all - first post.

I’m currently smoking an Oppo Ha-1 headphone amp. Superb. Class A toroidal. Every connection you could ask for. Great sound.

One problem - no streaming element so I’ve been using a little modified raspberry PI called an Innous Wave mated to Squeezebox on my computer.

The Naim Uniti Atom looks amazing, because it incorporates streamer, DAC, amplifier, speaker connections etc.

BUT - then they go an put a silly little 3.5mm headphone connection on the front of it!

I’m finding it almost impossible to source a single unit streamer with a really good headphone section in it too.

Obvious choice is this Cambridge Audio NQ…except…£3,500!

What are your thoughts / suggestions please?



The Atom is Naim’s entry level all-in-one system, and squeezing all of those components into such a small box isn’t going to be easy. There are always compromises, and putting a large socket in a device which many might want to use with the far more common 3.5mm heaphone plugs might not have been such a popular move.
