Cambridge Audio Azur 851N Network Player

A Roon Ready streaming DAC with digital inputs and outputs. Play music off UPnP and NAS drives, Tidal, Qobuz, Spotify Connect, Apple AirPlay, and DSD. 

Stream virtually any file to the Azur 851N and hear it being brought to liefe with its 2nd generation Adaptive Time Filtering that upsamples everything to 24bit/384kHz. The upsampled data then passes through Twin Analog Devices DACs which are implemented in a dual differential configuration meaning each channel has its own DAC. The result is lifelike stereo imaging where instruments can be heard in specific parts of your room with uncanny accuracy.

All of these audiophile internals are powered by a large toroidal transformer and wrapped in rigid metal casework for the best delivery of a high-quality and consistent signal with low noise and buzz levels.
