About our Network Audio Streamer
In the good old days, audiophiles used CD's to play digital music. Now, many are ditching the disc in favor of streaming music from a local computer or directly from the internet. In order to do this, you will need to add a music streamer to your system. Network audio streamers are available with varying options, but all perform the same basic purpose: fetch a music file (e.g. song) from a music server or internet and hand it off to your Digital/Analog Converter (DAC) where it is converted into "music". In essence, a network streamer is a small specialized computer with a customer audio interface. The difficulty with network streamers is that on paper they all seem to offer very similar functionality. But when using them, the quality of the music playback will be very different from brand to brand. This seems strange as the device doesn't generate music itself, it is just transfering a computer file from one point to another. There are many technical reasons for this but it can be safely said that there is a reason one streamer is $500 and one is $15,000. Which one is right for you? It depends on your expectations. We have evaluated many streaming devices and offer brands serving from entry level to the absolute higest fidelity. To understand the why a streamer can make such a huge difference in listening enjoyment, please contact us and allow us to share what we have learned.
