DigiBit WAMP and More

What's a WAMP? DigiBit introduced their unqiue WAMP mono power amplifier/wireless media streamer/DAC (€2,000/pair), which is designed to sit under your passive speakers (custom plinths are available for any speaker) turning them into active streamers that will accept up to 24-bit/192kHz data and pump out 150 Watts of Class D power (into 8 Ohms).

You can also directly attach and read from USB storage, and Airplay or Bluetooth your tunes in and out.

The DLNA-enabled Aria Piccolo Streamer/DAC/Ripper ($1,895) was also on display which houses a 2TB HDD and can handle PCM resolutions up to 32-bit/384kHz and DSD256 while also offering Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth, and Airplay access.

Digibit is the company behind the Sonata database which specializes in offering extended metadata for classical music. The company is also at work on MusiBit.com, a free service aiming to become "the Google of music."

DigiBit is also at work developing voice recognition capabilities for their iaria app. If Amazon's Echo sales are any indication (3M sold), along with Sonos' recent announcement of their new VR focus, telling your hi-fi what to do may be the next next big thing.
