The EMM Labs NS1 Streamer acts as a powerful and versatile bridge between the internet, your network and your music system. It enables you to access the vast libraries of music available via the many internet streaming services. It also provides playback of audio files attached via USB stick and network attached storage.

Streaming and Audio Playback

Using UPnP/DLNA media streaming standards, the NS1 Streamer is able to share media, and communicate between many different media devices. Using its app, it can easily be remote controlled by mobile and tablet devices. Along with UPnP/DLNA support, the NS1 is also ROON READY and is a ROON ENDPOINT.

The NS1 can connect to many high resolution streaming services like TIDAL and QOBUZ. It also supports popular streaming services like SPOTIFY, DEEZER, vTUNER and many more. The NS1 supports network and USB file playback including AAC, AIFF, ALAC, FLAC, MP3, WAV and WMA, along with MQA® and DSD (DFF, DSF) files.

EMM Optilink and Control

The NS1 is equipped with EMM’s proprietary EMM Optilink interface. The EMM Optilink interface allows the NS1 to be galvanically isolated from EMM D/A Converters. Along with EMM’s Optilink, EMM D/A Converters like the DA2 V2 and the DV2 can receive media and track information on their display via RS232 connection. The NS1 is controlled easily with the mConnect Control app for mobile (Android/IOS) and mConnect HD for tablets.

Sound Quality

This is where the vast experience of Ed Meitner and the EMM Labs engineering team come into play. Functionality and specifications only tell part of the story. The most important aspect of an audiophile streamer is that the sound quality is of the highest standard and this is where the NS1 is in a class of its own. Great care has been taken to ensure that the NS1 handles music files with great integrity, including various electronic isolation & shielding techniques, reference component choices, high quality power supplies and expertly designed topologies to ensure signal purity.

Many audiophiles have resisted introducing streamers into their systems because the sound quality simply wasn’t comparable to their audiophile standard transports or analog but now the NS1 allows the adaptation of modern streaming practices with great confidence. The NS1 is a game changer and is rapidly taking residence in reference systems around the world.
