The Novafidelity N25 is the most advanced affordable network audio streamer from Korean-based manufacturer Novafidelity.
The N25 has been meticulously designed to cater to the most cutting edge digital music playback trends as well as performing to a high standard.
Inside the N25 are a dual core ARM Cortex A9 processor and ESS Sabre32 Reference DAC chip that offer advanced processing and digital-to-analogue conversion. From using reliable hardware circuit designs to the custom software designed in-house for a slick and intuitive user interface, Novafidelity has ensured the N25 is as future-proofed as possible.
This is reflected in the impressive streaming and playback features available in the N25. No matter what your source, the N25 ensures you are well catered for thanks to on-board Ethernet and a plethora of connections.
You can play your digital music collection in a variety of ways: from NAS devices stored on your home network, media files via USB, using Roon, internet radio, Bluetooth or AirPlay. Regardless of where your music is stored or streamed from a laptop or smartphone, the N25 offers seamless operation and high-performing audio quality.
All major music streaming services are supported, including Amazon Music, Deezer, Napster, Qobuz, Spotify Connect and TIDAL.
Digital connections include coaxial, optical and USB (input and output), as well as two USB 3.0 ports for high transfer speeds. The N25 can be connected as part of your home cinema or TV set up thanks to its HDMI eARC input, and there’s a single HDMI output for connecting external screens.
Other features include a built-in DAB+/FM radio tuner and an on-board Bluetooth receiver with support for AAC, aptX, aptX HD, and aptX LL codecs. An optional Bluetooth expansion upgrade turns the N25 into a Bluetooth transmitter, so you can wirelessly listen to your music using compatible Bluetooth headphones and speakers.
The N25’s aluminium front panel features a full-colour display for album artwork, and there are five presets available for storing your favourite DAB+ or FM radio stations.
The N25 can be fully controlled using Novatron’s MusicX Neo App – available to download from Apple Store and Google Play Store.
The Novafidelity N25 network audio streamer is available now for £1,099 from Harrow Audio, AudioVisual Online and other independent UK retailers. Optional additions include a Bluetooth transmitter (£75) and Wi-Fi dongle (£30).
