NP30

Network Music Player

However you experience digital music, the NP30 allows you to enjoy all of your computer-based music in the most amazing quality. With the ability to playback 24-bit studio master quality files through its built in Wolfson DAC, the NP30 not only offers every digital music convenience feature, but delivers a better-than-CD experience too.

Available Colours

Unleash the potential of your computer music!

Play the video to see how you can make the most of your digitally stored music and gain access to a new world of online music from Internet radio and streaming services such as Pandora and Rhapsody, to the files saved on your computer - all in stunning audio quality.

Support for all formats

The NP30 supports all the most popular formats including studio quality 24-bit FLAC, PCM and WAV files as well as stored MP3, AAC, WMA and OGG Vorbis . And the NP30 can access these files from any PC, Mac or Network Attached Storage (NAS) drive. So, however you've downloaded your music or ripped your CDs, the NP30 will enhance your digital music with greater detail, more accurate recreation of live recordings and significantly increased dynamic range.

Audio Clarity

Music stored on computers and other hard drives inherently suffers from jitter, and the NP30 implements a host of advances such as bit-perfect signal path and jitter suppression to vastly improve the quality of digital music playback. A Wolfson digital to analogue converter adds weight and depth to all Internet radio broadcasts and even low bitrate stations sound better than ever.

Streaming Services

The NP30 both simplifies and adds quality to a world of Internet radio stations, allowing you to listen to all your favourite music, sports, chat shows and podcasts through your home entertainment system. A breeze to use with its clear display, the NP30 can also be controlled using the amazing new free Stream Magic Remote App.

Stream Magic Remote App

The Stream Magic App is a platform which unites everything you need to enjoy your favourite music from multiple digital sources in the best possible quality:

  • Simplifies set-up and enjoyment of up to 20,000 Internet radio stations
  • Offers unparalleled armchair control of your network music player with a simple free iPhone or Android App
  • Seamlessly manages all your favourite streaming services for instant access without a PC such as Rhapsody and Pandora
  • The gateway to a world of studio master quality content!

Internet radio comes alive

Harnessing the power of Stream Magic, the NP30 vastly simplifies the world of Internet radio with a 20,000 tried-and-tested roster of stations from around the planet searchable by title, genre and region. Before inclusion on Internet Radio, all stations are thoroughly tested for reliability and quality.

Favourite stations, preferences etc. can be managed via the Stream Magic app and you can suggest new stations too.

Simple Set up

Using a simple file sharing system called UPnP (Universal Plug and Play), set-up requires no software and can be completed in minutes. Simple sharing of centrally stored music collections is effortless; either wirelessly (IEEE 802.11 b, g or n bands) or using the convenient Ethernet dataport connection on the rear panel - ideal for connecting your NP30 to your router.

Go Wireless

By linking our plug-and-play BT100 wireless audio receiver to the NP30 you can also stream music wirelessly from your smartphone, tablet, laptop or any gadget that supports Bluetooth*. Best of all, if your device supports the high-end audio aptX CODEC, you can stream audiophile quality music from your device to the NP30.
