Beautiful Sound

The Network Player uses twin premium Analog Devices DACS in 'dual differential' mode. Each stereo channel processes information separately for greater accuracy, while 2nd generation AFT upsamples everything to 24-bit/384kHz, dramatically reducing jitter. a toroidal transformer and rigid metal case further contribute to the network player's beautiful sound.

Ultra Connectivity

The network player connects with as many digital sources as possible. So whether the music is on an MP3 player, a hard drive, NAS drive, your PC or the web, there's a suitable input. Spotify and Airplay compatibility are built in, add a BT100 Bluetooth dongle to pair a device and let your tablet or iPhone become bona fide hi-fi devices

Digital Pre-Amp

With the option of being configured in digital pre-amp mode, the network player can be connected directly to dedicated power amplifiers as well as traditional integrated amps. Keeping the signal digital to the last moment makes it less susceptible to analogue deterioration, while a 32-bit SHARC DSP controls the volume output; by keeping the entire signal digital the best possible sound is achieved, even at very low volume levels.
