Streaming from Internet with MAN301

STREAMING FROM THE INTERNET WITH THE MAN301 Oc­ca­sion­ally, we get in­quiries from MAN301 users about how to play those stream­ing web­sites (like Tidal, Spo­tify, QoBuz etc.) via the MAN301.This can be eas­ily done via the Air­play fea­ture of the MAN301. With the icon in the lower right cor­ner on the iPad the menu for se­lect­ing the Air­play mode is shown. Af­ter se­lect­ing the Air­play mode, tell the iPad to play au­dio to the MAN301. This is done by swip­ing from the lower edge of the iPad up­wards, which opens a menu where the MAN301 de­vice can be se­lected for Airplay. Now open the ap­pli­ca­tion of the stream­ing ser­vice you like to play and start play­ing tracks. The tracks now play via the MAN301. The vol­ume can be con­trolled via the but­tons at the iPad. The Air­play streams in 44.1 kHz /16 Bit for­mat, which is per­fect for the stream­ing sites. The user in­ter­faces of the var­i­ous stream­ing sites are main­tained with this scheme, which is a very nice fea­ture, con­sid­ered that the stream­ing sites keep up­dat­ing their user in­ter­faces. In ad­di­tion all stream­ing sites are sup­ported automatically. In that man­ner all au­dio played on the iPad can be redi­rected to the MAN301. E.g. you can also play from Youtube or from your lo­cal mu­sic col­lec­tion on the iPad. Of course all Air­play ca­pa­ble de­vices can use the MAN301 for play­back in that manner.

Audio over Ethernet

  The tech­ni­cal de­tails of the Eth­er­net interface: - UPnP AV 2.0 / DLNA - plays and de­codes com­mon au­dio for­mats from HTTP streams - res­o­lu­tion up to 32-bit, sam­pling rate up to 192kHz (DSD64 is also supported) - sup­port for gap­less playback - bit-per­fect data transmission - 2-chan­nel asyn­chro­nous end­point with ex­ter­nal clock­ing for jit­ter-free playback - Sup­ports these for­mats: WAV, AIFF, FLAC, ALAC, MP3, AAC The Eth­er­net in­ter­face can be built into the Weiss D/A Con­vert­ers, namely: DAC202, Medea, Medus, DAC1, DAC2, Minerva. For DAC202, DAC2, Minerva, the internal space is not large enough to fit in both DSD/USB + LAN option. Customer owns the above models can only choose either DSD/USB or LAN option. We are happy to an­nounce an­other in­ter­face for up­grad­ing our D/A Con­verter mod­els: An au­dio over Eth­er­net card which sup­ports all stan­dard rates up to 192kHz and all the pop­u­lar au­dio file formats. This in­ter­face makes your D/A Con­verter an UPnP / DLNA Ren­derer unit, which is con­nected to your LAN via an Eth­er­net ca­ble. A typ­i­cal use case looks like this: - To your net­work you have con­nected a NAS (Net­work At­tached Stor­age) or a com­puter with au­dio files shared on the network. - On the same net­work there is the D/A Con­verter with the Eth­er­net interface. - An ap­pli­ca­tion on your phone or tablet con­trols the play­back of files to the D/A Converter. The nice thing of such a setup is that it can be con­trolled from any de­vice and the au­dio files can re­side on any other (or the same) device. It is also pos­si­ble to stream the files on the phone or tablet di­rectly to the D/A Con­verter. This makes [...]
