New British-made streamer from Leema Acoustics
Leema Acoustics has launched the Elements Streamer, a high-quality space-saving network music player with a high-performance DAC, Spotify Connect and Tidal integration, plus USB drive playback. Hand-made in the Welshpool factory in Powys, this compact music streamer, which was first unveiled in prototype form at Sound and Vision in February this year, is now available worldwide, following an extensive development and testing programme throughout 2018.
The player is based on the same high-performance streaming module in Leema’s Quasar amplifier. The addition of a (very) high-performance ESS 9018 Sabre DAC, with ESS-patented 32-bit Hyperstreamä DAC architecture and proprietary Time Domain Jitter Eliminator technology, eliminates input-clock jitter for unmatched clarity when streaming.
The Elements Streamer has built-in support for a number of music streaming services including Tidal, Deezer, Qobuz and vTuner radio; Spotify connect is also supported, along with file playback from Dropbox and Microsoft OneDrive, plus local playback from USB drives, enabling entire legacy music collections to be accessed with Leema Acoustics’ ‘analogue from digital’ sound quality.
The unit is available now. Price: £1,295.
