In more detail
Cambridge Audio's NP30 network music player supports all the most popular formats including studio quality 24-bit FLAC and WAV files (Ethernet connection required for 24-bit files).
So, however you've downloaded your music or ripped your CDs, the NP30 will enhance your digital music with greater detail, more accurate recreation of live recordings and significantly increased dynamic range.
But music stored on computers and other hard drives inherently suffers from jitter and the NP30 implements a host of advances such as bit-perfect signal path and jitter suppression to vastly improve the quality of digital music playback.
Its ingenious abilities are easy for all the family to enjoy and the NP30 will access music content stored on any PC, Mac or Network Attached Storage (NAS) drive. Using a simple file sharing system called UPnP (Universal Plug and Play), set-up requires no software and can be completed in minutes .
The NP30 both simplifies and adds quality to the amazing world of internet radio allowing you to listen to all your favourite music, sports, chat shows and Podcasts anywhere around the world through your home entertainment system. And thanks to its premium audiophile components, including a Wolfson Digital to Analogue Converter, the NP30 adds weight and depth to all internet radio broadcasts and even low bitrate stations sound better than ever.
A breeze to use with its clear display, the NP30 can also be controlled using the amazing new free Stream Magic Remote App.
