With the housing market still struggling to grow, the custom installation industry is still searching for ways to reach consumers and one of the most popular ways has been to market to existing homeowners.

Naim‘s UnitiSystem is a product solution that CE Pros can present to existing home owning clients that want multiroom audio, but don’t want to go through the expense and mess of retrofitting hardware and cabling in their home. The product line includes the Naim Uniti main component, which houses a CD player, a radio tuner, an integrated amplifier, Internet radio and the UPnP-enabled device includes streaming wireless connectivity to stream up to six streams of music, analog and digital inputs and iPod connectivity provisions.

The line also includes the UnitiQute, which is similar to the Uniti except that it doesn’t incorporate a CD player and it can be used as a local device. Rounding out the system is the UnitiServe, which is a music server that’s also UPnP enabled and it’s designed for ripping, streaming and local connectivity with digital outputs.

Recently the British company bolstered the functionality of the system by releasing an iPhone control app. Naim says the app provides iPhone and iPod Touch users with a wireless control option for the system.
