Naim UnitQute Volume Control

Rate this question

Question

I'm considering purchasing a used Naim UnitQute. I will have this as a desktop unit connected to my iMac USB to SPDIF connector the back of the unit listening to Tidal.

I'm curious if I adjust the volume on my computer will it adjust the volume through the Naim? There is no front volume control on the Naim and I know they have an app for this but I don't want to open the app each time to adjust or mute the volume.

Also, can I run a subwoofer through the pre amp output?

 

Thank you, John.

Depending on the program you can control the UQ, though you are actually just controlling the volume of whatever software on your MAC is sending music to the UQ, not the UQ itself. For example Roon will allow me to send fixed volume or use the software to control the volume (I prefer fixed). Be sure it comes with the Naim remote control, as it is a very good one and then you don't need the app at all.
