The Stream X Signature brings refinement to streamed audio. Capable of playing high-definition files from your own archive, or lossless quality from services such as TIDAL, a virtually endless library of glorious music.
Streaming services such as Tidal and Qobuz provide a convenient way of accessing vast catalogues of superb quality recordings. Far from being just for listening on the go through your mobile phone, these streaming services are more than good enough to be considered audiophile sources. They are now leading the way in delivering the next generation of audio experiences.
Our approach in designing the Stream X Signature is to provide a product which is simply, but brilliantly dedicated to the task of retrieving audio data from on-line music streaming services, internet radio channels, USB drives or your own digital library of music files. The Stream X Signature ‘cleans’ the data to perfection, then produces a re-clocked digital signal (PCM) to output into one of our (or a similar hi-fi brand) digital amplifier products (the 6DAC, 82DAC, Pre2DAC or DACXP).
High-end digital audio products such as the Stream X Signature cannot be described in terms of specifications or statistics. Instead, they demand to be ‘experienced’. Only then can the listener full appreciate the difference that the combination of components, software, re-clocking and resampling can make to the output signal.

Our listeners were initially impressed by the Cyrus combo’s fulsome bass reproduction: the deep synthesizer bass notes underpinning Boz Scaggs’ ‘Thanks To You’ were positively seismic via the Stream X Signature player and partnering DAC XP.
