Despite the popularity of streaming and the resurgence of vinyl, CD still reigns king as the music source for many, thanks to durability, sound quality and size. CD players have evolved and many now feature streaming capabilities, pre amplifiers and/or DACs that can accept connections from other digital sources, although we also sell "purist" CD players that are designed to play CDs very well

If you enjoy listening to music from your computer or portable player and want the best sound quality, you need a dedicated DAC (digital to analogue converter). In many cases, the soundcard or "headphones" output on your device is designed for cost rather than sound quality. By using a dedicated DAC, you bypass these and take the digital signal from your device. Many DACs include USB, as well as coaxial (RCA) and/or optical (Toslink) inputs for connection to other digital sources e.g. disc player, soundbar, etc

A Hi-Fi Streamer (also called a "Digital Streamer", "Media Player", "Network Player" or "Network Client") connects to your home network and internet (via ethernet cable or wirelessly) to play music from online services like Spotify, Tidal, iTunes, Last FM, internet radio, YouTube, etc and to seamlessly access music stored on your NAS drive, PC, Mac, or other Apple/Android device connected to your home network. These are designed to be used with your existing hi-fi amplifier or music system, but if you're putting together a system from scratch we also sell complete complete streaming systems which are streamers like these but with a built in amplifier to directly connect speakers
