The Interface that Excels
The creation of the DNC (Digital Network Client) began with a single aim: to build the best sounding and most versatile network client and digital/analogue converter possible, capable of interacting with all current music reproduction sources. R&D was allowed to operate with uncompromising rigor and dedication at all phases, leading to the DNC’s astonishing, powerful performance, innovative analogue signal processing and circuit design. It is a truly universal interface for digital music. Reading from computers, servers, HDD, USB sticks and streaming from the internet – via cable or wireless – the Audionet DNC will turn any digital music data into a captivating musical experience.
Audionet’s DNC, considered a premium choice among elite network clients, allows an ease of use that is uncommon in the high-end audio world. With intuitive and powerful apps, it interfaces with all tablet PCs and smart phones, including all members of the Android and iOS operating systems (Audionet aMM – Audionet Music Manager for Android, Audionet iMM – Audionet Music Manager for iOS). The Audionet DNC is the first network client and Digital to Analog converter able to be fully integrated into a network and operated entirely by a PC or Mac. Our in-house developed software RCP (Audionet Remote Control Point) allows the user to organize complex functions and settings effortlessly through a GUI (graphic user interface).The RS-232 interface allows in addition for professional integration into home automation systems. At long last it can also be controlled in the classic way with the Audionet RC2 Remote Control.
The Audionet DNC’s unique functions provide for a cutting-edge music experience. Our engineering team has refined our digital filter technology and integrated it into the Audionet DNC. It is the first network client and Digital/Analogue converter with such powerful delay and EQ management. Such precision allows for first time syncronised balance setting and effective correction for room acoustics and tonal disturbances. Each speaker ensemble can be adapted to it’s listening environment. Joined with Audionet’s analysis and correction software, CARMA, the spatial data is captured, analyzed for perfect correction, and automatically transferred to the DNC. Professional room acoustics, all the time
The Audionet DNC is fully equipped. It can receive internet and FM radio as well as podcasts, streams music from TIDAL, Qobuz and Deezer, offers an USB 2.0 (USB Audio) and a digital USB-A interface. Each input is independently namable and can have input levels matched. The DNC features an optical Audionet input and output for remote switching between components, and utilizes a network phase monitor. The DNC is capable of using an external power supply (Audionet EPS G2 or EPX), for clean power.
The Audionet DNC offers universal digital connectivity. Nine digital inputs, including WLAN, LAN, USB, S/PDIF, electrical and optical make any network interface possible. A pair of gold-plated RCA and XLR outputs cover all analogue applications.
