StreamPlayer Gen II

The Story

Great Pedigree

For a few years now, we had been building the first generation of our StreamPlayer based on an embedded processor and a stripped down version of Linux. These were very stable units that performed admirably for the task at hand.

But with the advent of DSD and the proliferation of all manner of DACs, we figured it was about time to develop a higher power version of our StreamPlayer with improved USB support for the wide range of DACs coming on the market. Thus, the Generation II StreamPlayer was born.

Generation II is Born

This new version is based on a full-blown Intel computing platform with all the horsepower required both now and down the line. But we didn't stop with new hardware. We generated a custom build of the Linux operating system from the ground up. Only those functions required for the operations involved were included, so there is no extra software layer to bog things down. This is as stripped down as it gets.

What does this mean to you? It means that all the power is harnassed and directed only at the critical tasks at hand. So you will have all the power you need. And it also means the StreamPlayer's software simplicty will result in a unit that is extremely stable and unlikely to crash.

We also re-designed the StreamPlayer web interface to add new features and streamline operations.

The Result

The Generation II StreamPlayer puts the world of music at your fingertips. You can store and play your entire music collection and access it without leaving your listening position. And with AirPlay compatibility, you can stream Pandora, Spotify, Tidal, podcasts or any other audio from your device right to the StreamPlayer. DLNA compatibility also extends your library to any DLNA-compatible device in your home.

With the StreamPlayer Generation II, you have the world of music at your fingertips.
