Our MXN10 network player can bring the world of Hi-Res music to much-loved hi-fi set-ups and other audio systems. Its half-width compact footprint offers flexibility of placement. MXN10 can access free music, including internet radio, as well as subscription services – many of which offer free trials, so you’ll soon find your perfect streaming partner. MXN10 can play Hi-Res music from USB and NAS drives too. That’s digital music from limitless sources routed through one compact unit – all conveniently controlled with our StreamMagic app from your mobile.
MXN10 is nominated for What Hi-Fi? Readers' Award
Our latest StreamMagic Gen 4 module and software powers MXN10. It’s a system we developed in London ourselves for no-compromise hi-fi sound and rock-solid streaming performance. It’s intuitive to use and can playback music with up to an incredible 768KHz 32bit PCM or DSD512 resolution – to keep the most demanding listener happy.
Streamed music once traded-off hi-fi sound quality with convenience. Thankfully, things have changed – thanks to faster broadband speeds, newer audio CODECs, many more services to choose from and now, because MXN10 takes our celebrated StreamMagic platform and makes it available to even more people.
MXN10 can access both subscription and free Hi-Res streaming services, including internet radio, Spotify Connect, Tidal, Deezer and Qobuz – all integrated for best possible sound quality. With Apple Airplay2 and Chromecast built-in as well, you can access Apple Music and more, including BBC Sounds. And because MXN10 is Roon Ready, you can collate your digital music listening, regardless of origin, into a single magazine-style service.
Just like traditional radio, only it arrives via the internet rather than the airwaves. You can listen to your favourite broadcast stations, specialist internet only channels (including Soho Radio and NTS), plus many more from around the globe – all for free. Who knows what discoveries you’ll make on that specialist station from Tasmania? Plus, many stations are at a quality much higher than DAB.
If a friend visits, who doesn’t use the StreamMagic app (yet), they can play their favourite tracks wirelessly from their mobile with Bluetooth. Also, if they’ve any Hi-Res FLAC files on a USB drive, you can both listen in full hi-fi quality, just by inserting the drive into MXN10’s USB port.
There comes a time for us music fans when storage space becomes a problem. Then there’s the price you’ve got to pay to hear a handful of ‘previously unreleased’ tracks exclusive to bulky limited-edition box-sets. The compact MXN10 gives you the best of both worlds: hear the songs in incredible hi-res quality, without the worry of the impact on your shelves, or wallet.
Using MXN10 couldn’t be easier. Our StreamMagic app gives intuitive control of connected sources – to set presets, browse albums or curate playlists, all conveniently from your mobile device. Alternatively, there’s a row of neat buttons on MXN10’s sleek fascia that you can program for direct access to internet radio stations and favourite playlists.
Turn MXN10 around to see a pair of analogue RCA phono outs, digital coax and optical out, USB in, a pair of wi-fi antenna sockets for wireless network connection – or a LAN cable input if you prefer.
The analogue and digital outs also work simultaneously, meaning your hi-fi can also play nicely as a source in a multiroom set-up.
MXN10 gets its sleek timeless looks from our signature Lunar Grey aluminium fascia and black ‘floating’ base. The 215mm half-width steel cabinet matches our DacMagic200M and Alva Duo, it offers flexibility of placement and breathes new life into any hi-fi set-up – including that old amp in storage. Thanks to over-the-air updates, MXN10 will be a crowd-pleaser for many years to come.
