impressed me with their original Network Music Player (see review
) so I am a bit more than intrigued by their new S1 Player (S12,500). Pictured in silver, the S1 also comes in black for you steathy types, and supports up to 32/384 PCM and DSD128 using 4 ESS SABRE32
Reference DAC chips delivering a total of 16 DACs per channel. Inputs include Ethernet, USB storage, flash drive, USB hard disk (single-partition FAT32, NTFS and EXT2/3 only) while outputs consist of single-ended RCAs and balanced XLRs as well as digital outputs including BNC S/PDIF (supports up to 24/192 and DSD64), and HDMI (supports up to 24/192 and DSD64). The S1 also includes an upgraded external dual-toroidal power supply and a new clocking system.
