Novafidelity’s X35 all-in-one music player features CD ripping, music streaming, network streaming, and digital recording capabilities.
The NovaFidelity X35 is a high quality hub at the centre of all your music. Choose between streaming music by Ethernet or optional wi-fi. Listen to DAB, FM, Internet radio, or your favourite music services, such as Deezer. Stream your digital music library via DLNA/UPnP or just slot in a CD – Novafidelity’s X35 copes with it all. The X35 also lets you connect a huge range of other sources via USB, digital or analogue inputs. With a powerful 100-watt amp on board, all you need to do is add your choice of speakers. At the heart of Nova’s X35 is a super-powerful, Dual Core ARM Cortex A9 processor. This ensures that you get smooth functionality and the ability to playback Hi-Res music files.
Equipped with an ultra-high performance ESS Sabre DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor), the X35 has the power to support a huge range of file types. With support for DSD (256), DXD (24 Bit/352.8kHz), PCM (32 Bit/384kHz) and WAV/FLAC files, Nova’s X35 supports the highest quality music playback.
Thanks to built-in Internet radio by Airable, you can access thousands of radio stations from around the world. Access Tidal, Tidal MQA, Deezer, Qobuz and Napster for near unlimited music (subscriptions may apply). You can also access stored music on your laptop, home PC or other device connected to your home network. With UPnP/DLNA compatibility, linking up Nova’s X35 to the rest of your network is easy.
Featuring a high-speed optical drive, Nova’s X35 is ready to play your CDs. Combined with the X35’s powerful processing, it’s easy to then rip the discs to a USB connected device or optional HDD hard drive.
Covering all options, the X35 also features a built-in DAB/FM tuner radio. This gives access to national and local stations on DAB and FM. (Note; DAB+ is also included but currently unavailable in the UK).
Fitted with a built-in MM phono stage, the X35 accepts a turntable without any further amplification. Plug in almost any deck (with Moving Magnet cartridge fitted) and enjoy your records all over again – or for the first time!
With no fewer than three USB input hosts, it’s easy to connect up your digital media devices. With one of the USBs at the front, it’s ideal for plugging in memory sticks that you might also use in the car. A USB output is ideal for ripping recordings on to your own USB memory sticks.
An unusual but handy feature with Nova’s X35 is the HDMI connection. This lets you connect up to an HDMI-equipped TV or monitor and view album art and graphical information, on a large screen.
A wide range of digital and analogue inputs let you connect all your other sources – even your TV and games console. With a 3.5mm analogue input at the front plus RCA phonos at the back, all analogue sources are sorted. Digital inputs are handled by optical, coaxial and XLR professional inputs.
Boosting its credentials as a serious piece of Hi-Fi, Nova’s X35 features a dual mono, 100-watt, digital amplifier. This gives ample power to run almost any pair of speakers and run them effortlessly in larger rooms. Should you prefer to use your existing Hi-Fi, then simply plug the X35 in via the digital (coaxial and optical) or analogue outputs.
Impressive 7-inch full colour screen with graphical user interface
Thanks to its large display, controlling Nova’s X35 is easy. Either you can use a conventional remote control or the facia mounted controls and navigate around a clear and logical 7-inch colour screen. Alternatively, both Android and Apple iOS apps are available, allowing you to control the X35 by smartphone or tablet.
Solid construction quality
With a rigid metal chassis, Nova’s X35 is built to a high standard. The 13mm thick, aluminium front panel doesn’t just look good but helps shield against electrical interference, too. The high rigidity casing also resists against mechanical vibration.
