The NP30 Network Player adapts any high quality music system for audiophile streaming, internet radio and gapless audio playback, through integration with UPnP devices such as PC/Mac/NAS iPod®, iPad®, iPhone® or USB thumb drive. It’s a genuine 24/192 DAC including 3x optical, 1x SP/DIF, USB-A, USB-B, WLAN, LAN inputs (incorporating an asynchronous master clock for low jitter), and XLR, RCA, Digital (192 kHz), IRout, TRIGout outputs. A high quality aptX Bluetooth upgrade is included for the NP30 (see NP30 Design Brief in Downloads or view the product in the 'Streamers' section).
The Bluetooth Upgrade takes the form of a small internal circuit board and external antenna (for improved reception), which installs easily, the threaded antenna input replacing the FM/DAB terminal on the MM30 fascia and using a vacant (pre-prepared) portal on the back panel of the PRE60 and NP30.
The receiver-only module supports high quality Bluetooth via aptX, AAC, MP3 but rather than use an integrated DAC (as employed by other BT upgrades) the output is fed to the product’s own Sample Rate Converter and up-sampled to 192kHz for optimum performance through the existing high resolution DACs. In this way Primare’s Bluetooth Upgrade is among the most audiophile available, adding excellent Bluetooth sound quality to the convenience of wireless Bluetooth connections
