One owner, barely used Cambridge Audio NP30. Cambridge list price $649, selling for $500 or best offer. Great product, but I went in a different direction in my system.
Cambridge Audio’s NP30 network music player supports all the most popular formats including studio quality 24-bit FLAC and WAV files (Ethernet connection required for 24-bit files).
So, however you’ve downloaded your music or ripped your CDs, the NP30 will enhance your digital music with greater detail, more accurate recreation of live recordings and significantly increased dynamic range.
But music stored on computers and other hard drives inherently suffers from jitter and the NP30 implements a host of advances such as bit-perfect signal path and jitter suppression to vastly improve the quality of digital music playback.
Its ingenious abilities are easy for all the family to enjoy and the NP30 will access music content stored on any PC, Mac or Network Attached Storage (NAS) drive. Using a simple file sharing system called UPnP (Universal Plug and Play), set-up requires no software and can be completed in minutes†.
Audio performance is at the heart of everything Cambridge Audio does and bit perfect signal path and jitter suppression guarantee the best sound quality this side of a live studio session!
The NP30 supports a huge array of audio formats including MP3, AAC, WMA and OGG Vorbis plus you can now experience “Better than CD” 24-bit/96kHz playback quality as the NP30 also supports lossless WAV, PCM and FLAC CODECs.
The best streaming music without a PC!
Music streaming services like Rhapsody and Pandora have never been better and one of the NP30’s key strengths is its ability to directly connect to the leading services without the need for a PC.
Internet radio comes alive...
Harnessing the power of UuVol, the NP30 vastly simplifies the world of Internet radio with a 20,000 tried-and-tested roster of stations from around the planet searchable by title, genre and region. Before inclusion on UuVol Radio, all stations are thoroughly tested for reliability and quality.
Favourite stations, preferences etc. can be managed via UuVol and you can also suggest new stations too.
It’s a breeze to use!
Simple sharing of centrally stored music collections is child’s play; either wirelessly (IEEE 802.11 b, g or n bands) or using the convenient Ethernet dataport connection on the rear panel – ideal for connecting your NP30 to your router.
