OSD Upgrades Wireless DAC, and Monitor Speakers
FEBRUARY 1ST, 2019 JEREMY GLOWACKI
OSD Audio, an Audio Gear Group brand, is launching two new products to enhance the streaming digital entertainment experience: the Nero STREAM XD Wireless DAC/Streaming Amplifier and the Nero Studio5 Hi-Fi Monitor Speaker System
The Nero STREAM XD Wireless DAC/Streaming Amplifier ($299.95 MSRP) offers updated technology and more convenience over its predecessor, the Nero-XD. Based on Class D amplifier technology (50 watts x 2-channels of solid power; 200 watts peak power), it gives users a compact but dynamic 2.1-channel wired and wireless streaming music solution. The amp’s wireless streaming solutions include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 with aptX.
The Nero STREAM XD also features a Cirrus Logic CS8416 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog converter (DAC), a companion app interface that can be downloaded from either the iOS App Store or Google Play to your favorite mobile device, and a hard-button remote control for simple pushbutton operation.
Connectivity solutions include a stereo RCA analog line-in input, a TOSLINK digital optical input, a USB input, as well as a subwoofer output, gold-plated speaker wire binding posts, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
A full roster of front-panel LED status indicators gives you at-a-glance confirmation of wired input selection or wireless system selection
Nero STREAM XD Wireless DAC and Streaming Amplifier allows users to more simply connect to a digital source via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and stream their favorite music services, podcasts, or internet radio stations all via a simple-to-connect and control, app-driven solution.
Nero Studio5 Monitor Speakers
OSD Audio’s Nero Studio5 speakers were designed for a true monitor-grade performance at a budget-pleasing price.
With a 5¼-inch woofer, 1-inch silk-dome tweeter, and a bass reflex design with tuned port on rear of cabinet, the Studio5 Monitor Speakers ($199.95/pair) is intended as a desktop near-field monitor for music, podcast, or video production (or listening), or a shelf-positioned speaker for room-filling music listening.
Both products are available now at www.osdaudio.com.
