This new WHiFi© player is a new and the AirDream module has been completely re-engineered. All four main sections, power supply, master clock, digital to analog converter and analog output have been redesigned. First of all, the chassis is now build from non-magnetic aluminum.
The power supply is separated in 2 sections: The digital supply is based on a specifi c r-core transformer, the analog supply is an ACTS© type. The D/A converter is completely new and do not use the airport D/A converter anymore. The new D/A chip is a CS4351 Cirrus Logic followed by discrete pure classA Jfet buffers, all producing less than -100dB distortion from 20Hz – 20kHz.
Dynamic range is exceptional; transparency and realism are key words to describe the sonic quality of this new ARIA. The front panel is backlighted with white leds logos for the highest readability. ARIA is equipped with balanced and unbalanced audio analog outputs, both type using state of the art connectors. AES/EBU digital out is provided. The case work is available in two colors silver or black, is superb and the build quality is to the highest standards.
ARIA is certainly the best file player available today and is dedicated to all music lovers searching for the truth of the musical message.
