The Novafidelity N15D Network Adaptor & USB DAC is a hybrid USB digital audio converter and Hi-Fi network audio player, fused in single compact tabletop audio device.
Armed with an ESS SABRE ES9018K2M reference DAC chip, the Novafidelity N15D is capable of high accurate and high quality sound, all from a computer source. Existing DACs and amplifiers are also catered for thanks to the N15D’s networking functionality via Ethernet, its internal 2.5” drive bay or via USB host ports. A separate USB adaptor is also available as an add-on accessory to enable Wi-Fi capabilities.
Novafidelity’s N15D is fully Roon Ready, enabling integration with other third party Roon devices and incredibly high-resolution streaming capabilities, all in the box. Also under the hood is a dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 processor, allowing support for DLNA and Samba network protocols.
The N15D features both digital coaxial and optical audio outputs, an analogue stereo RCA output and a 1/4″ headphone output.
For computer host connection, a USB Type-B input is built-in along with a Gigafast Ethernet port and three USB Type-A host ports.
The Novafidelity N15D is configurable via several different routes, either by iOS (App Store) or an Android device (Google Play), or alternatively on a standard desktop browser.
