    'Since I have never had an extremely high-quality music server in my chain, I was quite curious how such a complete solution with memory and streaming module - and in this case plus CD drive - in comparison with my combination of the Melco behaves as a pure NAS and the Auralic Aries Femto as a streaming bridge. The Rockna Wavedream DAC has to be patient for a while. Because the NET does not have a USB output like the Aries, I connected it for comparison via S / PDIF with the Chord Electronics DAVE. For a short functional test, I put a well-known CD in the NET, pressed start and was impressed lasting: Ravi Shankar's "West Eats Meet" had never heard so good before! What the NET gets out of the silver disc is phenomenal, especially in terms of spatial imaging - but this does not mean that he does not also act at an extremely high level in the other disciplines. As can be seen in the DAVE display, the FPGA responsible for signal processing in the NET does not change the sampling frequency of the data. The Rockna works exclusively as a memory player, but not as an upsampler or upscaler such asChords Blu MkII .'

    We have both NET and DAC here in Malvern on permanent demonstration, or give Steve a call at Ultimate Stream for NET demonstrations.
