Network Player


The DNP-SR is the perfect network streaming companion for our DSD-MR MK2 and DSD-SR MK2 D/A converters.
It offers rich analogue-like sound quality from computer-based playback mostly because it runs on 100% low-noise linear power supplies and uses femto-clocks.
The XMOS USB controller, LAN network controller, Wi-Fi network module and even the quad-core processor and its memory are running on linear power regulators.
Being based on AURALiC Aries platform, the DNP-SR is feature-rich and can be used with Roon, Spotify, TIDAL, Qobuz and DropBox, if you have such accounts.
Note about why DNP-SR is based on AURALiC Aries audio streaming platform
While based on the AURAliC Aries, an already outstanding product, we have obtained far better performance from this platform.
Aside from many design features which we can’t reveal, it should be mentioned that the 11 (eleven) switching mode power supplies in the original Aries have been replaced with all-linear, low-noise power supplies, including an oversized hand-made power transformer. These are expensive but contribute to an increase in the natural sound quality the DNP-SR produces.
This is also the only computer audio streaming device offering such powerful streaming capabilities we know of to feature truly 100% linear power. Even the quad-core processor and its memory are linear-powered, unlike any other computer audio available at any price.
