The AudioLab 7000N Play network audio streamer is built on DTS Play-Fi technology and has a wide range of streaming functions. The device is manufactured in a standard form factor for Hi-Fi devices and will look great in a system consisting of both components from this series and equipment from other brands. The streamer has a laconicly designed front panel with a minimal set of buttons, and all its functions can be controlled via a mobile application.
To connect the AudioLab 7000N Play to your home network, you can use Ethernet or Wi-Fi connections. Once connected, the streamer gains access to music content stored on network devices. The entire music library is presented in the application in a user-friendly form. Here you can play a song, an entire album, or create your own playlists. DTS-Play Fi technology allows you to stream music from portable devices (smartphones, tablets) with higher quality than a Bluetooth connection provides.
In addition to playing local content, AudioLab 7000N Play allows you to play music from online services. The device supports all popular streaming platforms: Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, Qobuz and others. Added support for Apple Airplay 2. Of course, it is also possible to listen to Internet radio. Using six buttons on the front panel, you can launch Internet stations, online services or playlists pre-installed through the application. Audio playback is supported in High resolution formats with parameters up to 24 bit / 192 kHz.
AudioLab 7000N Play is built around a 32-bit ESS Saber ES9038Q2M DAC, which works in conjunction with proprietary signal processing circuitry to reduce distortion and expand dynamic range. The network player is equipped with analog, digital coaxial and optical outputs. The analog output of AudioLab 6000N Play can operate in fixed or variable signal level mode. In the second case, the player can be directly connected to power amplifiers or active speakers. Among the interesting additional features of the model is the presence of a USB interface, through which you can control the volume level on the connected Audiolab 7000A amplifier.
