Description

THE BEST MUSIC SERVER IN THE WORLD?

Paul Pang was the first pionier in high-end computer audio.

He has done it again.

This Paul Pang audiophile music server is currently the best that can be realized with computer audio.

 

UNIQUE IN THE WORLD

Currently there is no other high-end audio manufacturer in the world that uses such design in an audiophile music server.

The best possible signal is sent to your external DAC.

Music has no form of harshness or digital sound. Everything sounds pure & analog. Even when using streaming services such as Tidal or Qobuz.

 

INCL. LATEST V5 USB OUTPUT

For this streamer & music server Paul Pang designed a new high-end USB card, the V5 version:

In combination with his shielded high-end interal power cables this results in the best possible power supply currently possible with a computer.

This is also something no other manufacturer implements. Not even high-end audio brands in the upper segment.

INCL. STREAMING IN THE HIGHEST QUALITY

The audiophile OCXO-clock module is also attached to the LAN-chip of the motherboard. This assures lowest possible jitter values of signal via internet or your network.

This is an ideal upgrade for your sound via streaming services such as Tidal or Qobuz, or for feeding files via a NAS.
