TEAC announced the NS-X1 Network Music System with wireless Airplay and DLNA connectivity, FM and Internet radio as well as a dock for iPhone or iPod.
Regardless of which room of the house the user may be in, wireless access of digital music libraries stored on a NAS Drive, PC / MAC, iPod, iPhone or iPad is simple and easy. As the NS-X1 uses DNLA technology to integrate into a home network, inclusion of Apple AirPlay allows users to select and stream music directly from their iOS devices without the need to leave their seats.
Featuring 10W+10W power output driving two 2.5-inch speakers with Bass-reflex technology, the NS-X1 delivers a significantly deeper bass than expected from a unit of this size. A six preset digital EQ allows for further refinement where necessary.
All significant digital audio formats are supported (MP3, WMA, WAV, AAC, OGG Flac, Mpeg1-Layer 1/2/3 and LPCM) as well as a 30 pre-set FM tuner and access to internet radio via Vtuner – pre-installed software allowing users to easily navigate the world wide web to set up and personalise their favourites list from almost eighteen thousand internet radio stations.
Standard operation and functions of the NS-X1 can be addressed using the supplied intuitive IR- remote control including iPhone/iPod basic controls when docked (docked devices will also be charged). Playback of the Apple music libraries are controlled directly via the iPhone/iPad while utilising AirPlay.
The NS-X1 is only 5.5 cm deep and can be either sat on a desktop or hung on a wall.
