Cyrus Stream Xa Music Streamer / DAC
With 6 digital inputs, the Stream Xa is a versatile Digital to Analogue Converter as well as offering expertly engineered streaming capabilities. Compatible with most UPnP media servers.
Carrying the same high-tech streaming components as the Stream X₂, the Stream Xa boats an in-built DAC to provide a high-definition analogue output.
Engineered to get the most out of high resolution 24-bit/192 kHz files, it’s analogue output makes the Stream Xa the perfect streamer to slot into a traditional hi-fi system, without the need to invest in a separate DAC.
The onboard DAC can also be used as a stand-alone feature, by wiring your AV sound through the streamer for an improved sound.
Note: Only available with the stylish and intuitive n-remote. Like all of the Cyrus streamers, it can also be controlled via the custom made iOS app Cadence.
The n-remote is a special two way control unit that makes browsing your networked music library simple, whilst also giving you full control of your streamer at the touch of a button. It also has an infra-red learning capability, so that it can swiftly learn to control other products in your home, making this a truly flexible handset.
The direct RF (radio frequency) link from the n-remote provides a robust connection to your streamer, allowing fast and reliable control. Whether music is stored on your home network or iPod, the n-remote makes it possible for you to browse your music library by artist, album, genre or even access internet radio stations.
