Ok till it broke

I’ve had my speaker for a few weeks now. I set it up pretty easily when I got it. The app has some UX issues, especially around joining networks where if you pick a different network than the default it will not give you the chance to name the speaker. If you accidentally swipe down during setup it will dismiss the setup screen and leave you in limbo. But the biggest issue is that today I changed my network password and reset the speaker to set it up again. It gets to the part where it asks you for your country and then the app crashes. This leaves the speaker not set up. I reset it and tried again, same result. This might be because of the new iOS update. Hopefully Naim will fix the app soon! The hardware itself is amazing, but it’s a paperweight until they fix the app. I can’t even stream to it.

Won’t Connect to the Internet

I ordered a Naim because of the brand’s reputation. Like other reviewers have stated, it simply will not connect to the internet. I have tried using the program to set it up on an iPhone 12 Max, a Samsung 20 Ultra, an iMac Pro and and a new MacBook Pro. The program will go so far, and finally says “Unexpected Error”. I even have 2 networks and have tried it with both. Same thing. I get so far on the app and then nothing. My WiFi is Google Fiber and is extremely fast, so pretty sure it’s not the WiFi. I have now spent almost a day on it. I am so frustrated that I am returning it for a refund. A simple WiFi connection has to be this convoluted? I have never in 30 years had this issue with any other program or product. How tough can this be? A lot of other companies have this down to a science.

The WiFi is fine. It worked flawlessly on the Devialet unit it was replacing and every thing else that is connected it it, except the Naim. I am on Goodge Fiber and Orbit WiFi 6, which is backwards compatible to 2.4. The same errors are received on a PC laptop and Apple laptop. You will find several examples of the same issues with a Google search.

Hi there, Since the launch of iOS 14 and all its follow-ups, there have been many connection issues specifically centered around Airplay. Please ensure you are using the latest iOS update and then uninstall and re-install the Naim app. As its happening on your Samsung (Android) device too then I believe some network investigation is required. Please get in touch on and let's see if we can help - including some remote network diagnostics. Thanks, Naim Support

Update to previous review

It has been about 9 months since my previous review. I’ve since realized the song option I talk about below either has been fixed, or it’s an option that has been added. Either way, thank you Naim for addressing me personally and answering my query. I’ve raised my review to three stars.
Also, I’ve had a lot less issues than before, I’m assuming glitches have been worked on and for that I also thank you.
I’ve noticed that just like a computer, most issues go away when you unplug it and plug it back in.

So why not more than three stars? Because it’s still not as smooth as using the Tidal app directly. Of course I don’t use the tidal app directly because I don’t want to lose sound quality through Bluetooth.

(Previous review)
It’s a constant struggle to get Tidal and Naim to work harmoniously. The latest issue is that it will say, “ready” except it will not play whatever you choose. Also. Naim, if I click on a song and nothing is playing, it means I want that song to play. Why does it open a drop down every time to see if I want to play it next or queue it. I have a $10,000 music room setup (and I know it’s low compared to other Naim equipment owners) and I can’t even stream one song without having issues. It’s embarrassing!
I currently use this app on my iPhone and I have a Naim Atom.
Issues not as bad with the Muso.
Please fix it!

Hi, you can use "Settings > Other settings > Tap for options" to control if you see the popup menu when you tap a track or if it plays immediately without showing the menu. If you are still having trouble playing TIDAL content then please contact and we can help trouble shoot it with you. We are back on 2nd Jan 2020.
