Technology, precision and quality
The original format of the digital Hi-Res music tracks provided by streaming services must be maintained.
With this in mind, we perform no alterations or conversions in order to fully respect data integrity. The streamed music is fully "bit-perfect" all the way through.
We have added extremely precise clocks which ensure perfect timing of data flow, "jitter-free" from the network playback through to the output signals.
