Naim has announced that Apple AirPlay 2 will be added to its ND55, NDX 2 and ND5 XS 2 network streamers, via a over-the-air update. The move follows similar updates to Naim’s Mu-So and Uniti ranges, bringing the functionality to the company’s entire family of music-streaming products, including its £20k flagship reference network player.

Apple AirPlay 2 enables advanced multi-room functionality and Siri voice control.

A proprietary Apple technology, it allows music to be streamed from an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac computer and Apple TV device to any compatible Naim device. Audio can be sourced from Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, YouTube, internet radio and podcasts, and controlled via Apple’s Home app, Control Center or Siri voice commands.

Apple AirPlay 2 also supports multi-room playback to streaming products that support the Apple standard. Users can ask Siri to play a particular album, song or playlist in sync across all compatible products in every room or a single room, as well as different music in each room.

Naim’s range of streamers support Spotify Connect, Tidal, Bluetooth, Chromecast (built-in with support for other music streaming apps including Deezer, Qobuz), Internet radio, UPnP streaming (supports high-resolution WAV, FLAC and DSD files at resolutions up to 32bit/384kHz), and are also Roon Ready.
