Naim Audio network players get AirPlay 2 update
Naim Audio has announced that Apple AirPlay 2 support will be added via a free over-the-air firmware update to its dedicated network players – the ND5 XS2, NDX 2 and ND 555.
Following similar updates to the Mu-so and Uniti ranges last month, Apple AirPlay 2 now enables advanced multiroom functionality and Siri voice control across a vast range of its music-streaming products, from the entry-level Mu-so Qb wireless speaker to Naim’s flagship source.
Apple AirPlay 2 allows music to be streamed from Apple devices to a compatible Naim speaker. Audio can then be controlled via Apple’s Home app, Control Centre, or Siri voice commands.
As well as supporting multiroom playback, AirPlay 2 also features enhanced buffering to improve audio streaming performance across the network.
The Naim app will prompt customers to perform an over-the-air update.
