ELITE S is a multi-source high-end digital music player that produces amazing sound quality and is full of feature-set. Its audio signal path is optimized to be a perfect source suitable for paring with any audio systems from an ultra high-end to a small and space-saving system. With a built-in 256 steps solid-state volume control, ELITE S can directly connect to a power amplifier without an intermediated preamplifier stage for the cleanest and shortest signal path setup. We provide iOS and Android App for the ease of access to all of your favorite digital music sources from your smartphone or tablet.

• Ultra-low noise solid-state attenuator: high precision 0.5 dB per step of attenuation, delicately designed for very low noise performance which suites for pairing with the power amplifier without the need of an intermediate preamplifier stage.

• High quality AKM digital to analog converter which is fed by bit-perfect digital data and clocked by two crystal oscillators that feature only femtosecond range of jitter noise.

• Feature rich network players: support popular music streaming services such as TIDAL, Qobuz and Spotify. Local Disk, NAS, DLNA/UPnP are also supported.

• MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) is fully supported on all inputs including the network input. MQA full decoder is implemented on a dedicated hardware chip.

• Analog outputs: balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA.

• Headphone output: with our attenuator technology, ELTIE S support various type of headphone, with different sensitivities and impedances, while always having a noiseless background.

• S/PDIF outputs: Coaxial RCA and Optical TOSLink to function as a network streamer.

• S/PDIF inputs: 2 x Coaxial RCAs and 1 x Optical TOSLink.

• USB Audio 2.0 in asynchronous mode.

• LAN and Dual band WiFi support.

• Digital Media Server (DMS) function. ELITE S can be a DLNA server when an USB storage is attached.
