The FIDELIO Streamer plays music streamed from a file server or the Internet stream, acting as a UPnP /DLNA Media Renderer device. Common PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) audio formats are supported, including lossless FLAC up to 384kHz. One-bit DSD (Direct Stream Digital) is also supported via uncompressed DSF and DFF files.
Ethernet streaming is based on an asynchronous protocol, clocked by ultra-low jitter on-board oscillators. Using this concept, the design benefits from a local high-quality master clock to achieve the highest quality, jitterfree digital audio playback.
The electronic components have been carefully selected to achieve the best performance. The oscillators have been developed in collaboration with a S w i s s clocking devices manufacturer.
Special care has been taken with the clock distribution circuit . All local voltage regulators have very low noise characteristics. AES/EBU and S/PDIF transformers are best in class.
The FIDELIO Streamer is our proprietary solution for network audio playback and takes care of the asynchronous mode, clock management, formats decoding and UPnP/DLNA support to provide an unprecedented listening experience. Latest high-resolution files, be they DSD or PCM, can be streamed from local or remote servers with perfect clocking and data integrity (bubbleUpnp).
This state-of-the-art concept is the solution for network connectivity and is technically the best interface for digital music reproduction.
The FIDELIO Streamer offers a top class solution for network audio playback systems, based on our Ethernet Audio Renderer Module eRED-MOD.
Developed exclusively for High-End systems, it achieves jitter-free, bit-perfect playback with no compromise on sound quality.
Thanks to its compatibility with the UPnP AV 2.0 standards, integration into a home network is easy.
