Network player: Stream at hi-fi level

Music streaming services are becoming increasingly popular. They give you access to your digital music library from anywhere and let you listen to your favorite albums or playlists whenever and wherever you want. This makes your commute to work, for example, much more enjoyable. But a digital collection isn't just extremely handy when you're on the go. It also has a number of advantages in your own home. Use a network player to stream your music in the best quality.

How a network player works

A network player is the link between your digital library and your hi-fi system. Instead of pulling a CD from your collection and playing it through the system, everything here goes digital. If you want to play music via a streaming service, however, in most cases you can't simply pair your smartphone or TV with the system.

The sticking point here is the different signals. The digital files send digital signals accordingly, which must first be converted into analog variants so that the speakers can process them. The integrated D/A converter is responsible for this.

The network player connects through the home network, hence the name. For better transmission, connect it via Ethernet cable or alternatively wirelessly via your WLAN. Once connected, you select it with your PC or smartphone. Besides the well-known MP3 format, network players support other audio formats like WAV, FLAC and ALAC, which have significantly less losses during transmission.

Requirements for the use of a network player

The bitrate of your Internet connection and the sampling rate of the files you want to play are important when choosing the appropriate audio formats. Unlike conventional CDs, digital files usually have a higher rate, around 96 kHz. To ensure that the transmission is as stable and powerful as possible, you should use a cable connection.

You connect your amplifier to the network player, which in turn passes the signal to your sound system. The properties of these devices are secondary for the conversion, since the process takes place in the network player itself. Thus, you don't need new hardware if you want to add it to your existing set.
