The Birth of a New Reference
Audionet’s new DNP (Digital Network Preamplifier) offers a new standard in combining world class tone, dynamics and reference class sound staging with access to a multitude of digital formats, turning digital music data into a captivating listening experiences. The Audionet DNP is a high potential preamplifier that competes favorably with the world’s best, including our own, all analog Audionet PRE G2. The Audionet DNP is capable of handling both coarse and fine dynamic with outstanding musical exactness and finesse while paying special attention to imaging as well as room correction. In combination with Audionet’s new reference external power supply, the EPX, the DNP reaches new levels of performance, featuring the usual Audionet qualities of presenting music as realistic as possible and free from grain, distortion or coloration, while offering also rarely found level of convenience and customization in integrating signals from computers, servers, HDD, USB sticks and streaming from the internet.
The Audionet DNP is the first preamplifier which can be fully integrated into a network and controlled completely by Windows, Linux or Mac computers. Users worldwide noticed the outstanding ease of use, making programming the DNP a breeze. Our in-house developed software RCP (Audionet RCP – Audionet Remote Control Point) allows the user to organize complex functions and settings effortlessly through a GUI (graphic user interface).
Additionally intuitive and powerful apps are available, which 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 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 System Remote Control.
The Audionet DNP is the very first stereo preamplifier that is equipped with an ultra precise delay, bass, and equalization management, allowing for very nuanced balance adjustment while preserving the coherence of the music. The Audionet DNP allows near unlimited options to adjust the music reproduction, setting a new standard in high quality customizable music reproduction systems. To accomplish this, we have further enhanced our proven and acclaimed digital filter technology and integrated it into the DNP. A pair of subwoofers may be integrated, which are separately adjustable in all parameters. Room influences and tonal challenges and problems can be efficiently corrected. Speaker arrangements can be optimized for every possible listening situation. Joined with Audionet’s room analysis software, CARMA, which captures and analyzes the acoustical behavior and properties of the room, the Audionet DNP is now able to perform professional grade room compensation and correction for the passionate amateur and expert.
The Audionet DNP offers a wealth of features. It receives internet and FM radio as well as podcasts, streams music from TIDAL, Qobuz and Deezer, has a USB audio and a digital USB-A interface, can be upgraded with a high-class phono preamp, may be integrated into any home cinema due to its bypass mode and has an excellent onboard A/D converter which can be used for the high-class digitalisation of all analogue sound sources. The inputs can be named freely and different input levels matched. Connected via Audionet Link, other Audionet devices can also benefit from a remote turn-on. A trigger output can be used to control active speakers. And it has even an automatic mains phase recognition.
Maximal connectivity is provided by thirteen (13!) digital inputs, and five analogue inputs; digital ports include WLAN, LAN, USB Audio, and S/PDIF, electrical and optical. In analogue, the DNP features five stereo inputs, four coaxial, and one balanced. In total, the Audionet DNP is capable of powering up to two subwoofers and six power amplifiers.
Optionally, the DNP can be extended with our high-quality phono preamplifier board. Audionets DNP is compatible with the external precision mains adaptor EPX. Please note: the external precision mains adaptor EPS G2 is not suitable for the DNP, please use the EPX instead!
