Ayon Audio NW-T Network Transport Streamer

AYON AUDIO NW-T Network Transport / DSD option

The Music NW-T is a new outstanding design which includes a Network-Transport with its “tube buffered digital output stage” and an Analog/Digital converter (ADC). The Network-Transport can be connected with any external DAC or CD-player with a digital input (DAC section). Furthermore its built-in ADC can be used to convert analog signals (e.g. of a phono-stage) into digital signals or into FLAC files respectively and to store them afterwards in an NAS. Special attention was paid to the tube-power supply and the digital output signal, because this digital interface is significantly involved to achieve “analog-magic” sound properties in the external DAC to a large extent. The NW-T was designed to maintain all advantages of a tube (in the power supply as well as in the digital output stage) in combination with streaming. The NW-T uniquely unifies both and offers a new dimension of sound far above its class.

The NW-T now is also available as DSD version.
Playback of DoP (DSD over PCM) and native DSD is supported by e.g. JRiver Media Center.
Existing NW-T’s can be upgraded to the DSD version too.
