NAIM FIRMWARE UPDATE FOR LEGACY PRODUCTS

LEGACY UPDATE.jpgNaim is preparing to launch key firmware updates for its legacy streaming products, including original Uniti systems, streamers and first-generation Mu-so wireless speakers.

The 1st Generation Mu-so release - Firmware 2.0.0 – is on Tuesday 28th September as an over-the-air update via the Naim App, while Firmware 4.8 for the other legacy streaming products will be available to download from the Naim website on Thursday 30th September.

These essential updates will ensure the products can continue to stream TIDAL, which has implemented a new login authorisation process that affects older generations of products from many brands, not just Naim. Please note the new TIDAL implementation is also dependent on users running at least version 5.22 (iOS devices) or 2.22 (Android devices) of the Naim App, which itself gets a minor update to 5.22.1/2.22.1 this week.

The firmware updates also feature a range of other improvements and bug fixes, fully detailed below.

WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT UPDATING YOUR NAIM PRODUCT UNTIL YOU HAVE READ THIS GUIDE, OR IT MAY STOP WORKING

Affected legacy products: UnitiQute/Qute 2; UnitiLite; Uniti/Uniti 2; SuperUniti; NAC-N 172; NAC-N 272; ND5 XS; NDX; NDS

If you stream TIDAL via any of the above Naim products, you must now update to Firmware 4.8 or you will no longer to be able to access the service.

TIDAL has implemented a new login authorisation process that affects older generations of products from many brands – not just Naim. Without a software update, TIDAL will simply stop streaming.

Firmware 4.8 does NOT apply to products running versions of Naim software prior to 3.00, or to any product with an n-Link connection. These will continue to function as they do currently – please DO NOT attempt the upgrade, which could stop your product from working at all.
