The X-Stream 9 is a network drive, a DAC, a CD player, a PC / MAC reader via its USB-B X-MOS asynchronous input and a digital DAB / DAB + and FM tuner.
Whatever the medium of your favorite music – computer PC or MAC, smartphone, tablet, network hard disk, NAS or CD disc, you could benefit from a quality of sound of very high level.
“Without limit” was our philosophy regarding the design of our universal source. Our engineers have integrated the best technologies with the unique condition that the results obtained result in a soothing listening without aggressiveness of total purity.
The audio output stage as well as the decoding part have been particularly cured. Signal conversion is supported by the AK44 AKM converter.
The AK4490 is part of a new generation of high-end 32-bit DACs based on AKM’s VELVET SOUND architecture, which has been widely adopted by established high-end audio companies. This technology delivers high quality sound detail with its low-distortion architecture, in addition to 32-bit resolution digital filter processing.
The AK4490 supports up to 768kHz PCM and 11.2MHz DSD (Direct Stream Digital), suitable for playing high-resolution audio sources. Five digital filters are integrated in the DAC thus optimizing the sound reproduction.
The AK4490EQ is suitable for converting high-resolution sound sources that the X-Stream 9 masters perfectly.
Combined with our audio stage, this low-distortion DAC (-112dB based on a signal-to-noise ratio of more than 120dB) will increase your listening pleasure!
The network player part of the X-Stream 9 allows you to manage streaming services (Spotify, Qobuz …), several thousand local, national and global radio, playing your disco stored locally on your computer or network drive. Compatible with Airplay and DLNA.
Control of your network drive can be done through the ADVANCE PLAYSTREAM app that can be downloaded from the AppStore and Google Play.
The X-Stream 9 has a CD player incorporating the latest generation of servo Tamul ensuring a stable and qualitative playback of your CDs. The solution used combines a 16-bit processor and a 24-bit DSP. It supports CD, CD-R / RW, CD-DA (MP3 / WMA) playback.
Our universal source is also equipped with a USB-B X-MOS input for direct connection of your PC or MAC computer. This 32-bit / 8-core asynchronous high-speed input enables playback of all types of files up to DSD.
In addition to its fixed line output for use with an integrated amplifier or preamplifier, the X’Stream 9 can be parameterized as a variable output for connection to a power amplifier or powered speakers. It will then be used as a preamplifier / universal reader. The volume will be controlled from the remote control or via the device itself.
The X-Stream 9 acts as DAC, it is equipped with 3 optical inputs and 2 optical inputs.
In addition, our player has both balanced (XLR) and unbalanced analog stereo (RCA) stereo outputs as well as two optical and coaxial digital outputs.
The X-Stream 9 features a Bluetooth Direct Digital (BDD) port for connecting our X-FTB 01 Digital Bluetooth Receiver. This receiver incorporates the APTX which ensures CD quality across all your sources.
