Bladelius Design Group is offering a totally new replay system. The Embla offers a silent playback system without any moving mechanical parts when playing from the built-in flash memory. The Embla is built from the ground up as a high performance audio playback system.
Unlike computer based playback products the Embla is based on our proprietary audio DSP design, allowing complete control over the timing and reading of the discs. The Embla is designed as a true audiophile unit from the ground up and it's not a modified computer that can copy discs. Not only is the Embla a playback system but it also includes an analog preamplifier, a world class DA-converter based on our reference CD-player, the Gondul M. The DA-converter also carries a switchable digital filter with analog behavior. Insert a CD and you have the option to play directly from the disc like a standard CD-player or you can store the disc on the internal flash memory. You're not even limited to just internal storage. External units can directly connect via USB to the Embla, as well as you may access files on a network drive or music streaming from a PC.
The Embla comes preloaded with a database with album and track names and will display album art if connected to the internet via its Ethernet port.
Embla uses a built in database for album and track information. If Embla is connected to the internet it will retrieve the latest information for album and track names as well as album cover art.
Bit perfect copies
Embla makes bit perfect copies of CD's to memory using our advanced proprietary data reading error analysis algorithms enabled by a high performance Teac drive. The bit perfect copies will be stored in strict wav pcm format.
The internal memory for music storage is flash based, which gives you a completely noiseless system. The internal flash memory is upgradeable to larger size. Available from 64 GB to 2 TB.
Embla has an USB port for USB memory sticks or external harddrives, which can be used for external storage of music. Embla has a second USB port for streaming music from a computer.
Embla has an Ethernet adapter for connection to your local network. This allows you to play music from media servers such as a computer or a NAS . If your local network is connected to the internet, Embla will retrieve album art and update its database with the most recent data.
Music file types
Playback of PCM, WAV, HRx, FLAC, MP3, OGG with tag information. Audio Data files are supported up to 32bit, 192 kHz.
Built in analog preamplifier with analog volume control in 0.5db steps.
Digital to analog converters and filters
Ability to choose from two separate balanced DAC configurations (2 DACs/channel); ability to select a special filter with analogue behavior; ability to select up to 192kHz sampling rate
Large linear power supply with toroidial transformer and multi-stage regulation for the lowest possible noise levels.
DA-converter provides the master clock for the transport and reading of the flash memory for the ultimate jitter performance. A highly efficient memory based jitter remover can be set for external sources.
A machined aluminum remote control comes with the unit as a standard accessory. Support for upcoming large touch screen remotes.
Leggendo le Caratteristiche Tecniche, non mi sembra comunque malaccio...e poi può essere assemblato in diverse Configurazioni e ciò è molto importante.
Spero di provarlo presto così darò anche il mio personale e modesto giudizio.
