coincidentally from my home town,
this family-run business has huge experience
fanless PCs in a very compact form for industry under the TranquilPC
Typically, the casings
for the PCs are precisely machined in their Manchester UK factory
from a solid billet of "aerospace grade" aluminium, so heat is conducted away from the
without a noisy fan. Exactly what's needed in an audio amplifier!
AVA Media have
several products using carefully chosen components best suited to their
fitted to precise
casings, which share clean styling cues with Apple products.
super slim Zara Premium audiophile CD-ripper /
music server - also has audio out
versions with 2x1TB or 2x2TB onboard or diskless (which uses your NAS)
Zara can index and include music found on other NAS on the same LAN
Stop Press: all AVA rippers
withdrawn from market (April 2015) - why?!
Zara Premium is a very accurate ripper/server fully deserving of its audiophile position
software familar to
Naim users whose discerning client base has already fully
tested its efficacy.
It's also very compact and
totally quiet. I control music from my
Zara server like I do from my RipNAS/Asset: using Linn Kinsky via Android.
Maestro-50 amp next to AppleTV -
another version comes in the same footprint as Sonos Connect (for stacking)
Maestro-50 is a digital amp, connecting via SPDIF Toslink or coax
Avalon use AVA's Maestro-50 digital amplifier as an ideal Sonos amplifier upgrade, Apple
Express or TV companion, but also a fine
own right, representing great
value for money.
