HUSH DIGIFI now supports local USB DAC London - Jan 6th, 2010 - Digital Fidelity ltd, are delighted to announce that their range of DigiFi products now support USB DACs to enable local playback at true audiophile quality.
All DigiFi products from Digital Fidelity support local playback through generic USB audio digital interface (supports 24/96), M -Audio Transit (supports 24/192), and S/PDIF (supports 24/96).
The DigiFi platform was designed to marry the convenience of the world of the CEDIA installed -home with flexibility of the world of UPnP. Able to provide bit -perfect ripping and local storage of music as well as ripping directly to NAS drives, the HUSH DigiFi's are also able to 'harvest' content stored on any drives shared on the home network, as well as connected MP3 players and USB drives. All the music catalogued is displayed as one music library for control either by the HUSH DigiFi's own interfaces but also by Pronto, together with Crestron and AMX (for the HD -F200 and DF -R200 only).
Encased in a striking, beautifully engineered, robust aluminium chassis, and using HUSH's patented and award winning silent cooling technology, two Hush DigiFi models are shipping now and available from Digital Fidelity:
o HDF200, with 2 terabytes of internal storage (1000GB mirrored)
o HDF100M, with 1 terabyte of internal storage (500GB mirrored)
"With the HUSH DigiFi, the progressive custom installer is now able to open up fresh new opportunities in the Custom Install space by offering genuine audiophile solutions, either locally using a USB DAC, or by integrating and controlling the Linn DS range using Pronto or within a full Crestron or AMX install" commented Matthew Simmons, Commercial Director for Digital Fidelity.
Available now from Digital Fidelity the H -DF100m is priced at £2,299 and £3,499 for the HDF200. A custom install version in a 19" rack with integrated PSU is available at 2,699 (spec as H -DF200).
About the DigiFi Platform
The Hush/Streaming Player combination is a full IP -based solution, with storage and control infrastructure in a centralised (including rack -mount) location, and digital distribution over CAT5 to Linn DS and other supported players. All DigiFi models rip and encode to WAV, FLAC and MP3, and are able to store content to NAS drives to support the most extensive music collections.
The DigiFi is also able to 'harvest' content stored on any drives shared on the home network, as well as connected MP3 players and USB drives. Harvested formats supported are WAV, MP3, WMA (inc Lossless), FLAC, AAC, Apple Lossless but DigiFiTM intelligently transcodes all those, where necessary, to the formats supported by each player. All the music harvested, irrespective of source - local, NAS, PC, Mac - is catalogued and displayed as one music library for control either by Crestron and AMX control -surfaces or the DigiFi's own interfaces running on PC, PDA and TV.
