The future of home audio is here
You already have lots of music sources. In the future, you’ll probably have more.
Instead of having to access them separately, now you can network them all together.
The NP-S2000 Network Player links all your sources — iPod, Internet radio, NAS and much more — with easy access via a web browser or even your iPhone.
And the Network Pure Audio sound quality is even better than your present sources.
It’s the future of home audio — and it’s here right now.
No Motor, No Mechanism
The NP-S2000 receives inputs from all of your media sources and outputs them to your audio system.
It does not have its own hard drive, DVD/CD mechanism or motor.
This means no noise caused by hard drive motors and actuators, no mechanism noise and no jitter from data buffering.
The sound you hear has much greater clarity, detail and presence than anything you are used to.
Dual DACs, Full-Balanced Transmission
Two high-precision Burr-Brown D/A converters are used, dedicated to the left and right stereo channels.
The outputs are then sent through balanced transmission circuits.
When connected to an amplifier with balanced input (the Yamaha A-S2000 is the best choice), the result is dramatically higher sound purity than from conventional systems.
Two Independent Power Supplies
The NP-S2000 uses two high performance power supplies, a toroidal transformer for the analogue section and an IE core transformer for the digital section.
This ensures higher, more stable power, while allowing the two sections to be completely isolated to prevent any interference.
Easy Setup, Web Browser Interface
The NP-S2000 comes with a setup application that guides you through installation step by step, making it easy to create your own digital audio network.
After setup, you can get quick, easy access to all your media via a web browser interface, which you can use from your computer, smartphone, netbook or other devices.
from House of Fraser to Tesco,
no one is selling it, we're sorry to say,
not 420 retailers nor anyone on eBay,
but please don't worry even if it hurts,
you can look for alternatives or
