Monday, December 3, 2018

Leema Acoustics has launched the Elements Streamer, a network music player with a “high-performance DAC”, Spotify Connect and Tidal integration, plus USB drive playback. Hand-made in the Welshpool factory in Powys, the Elements streamer is now available worldwide, following an extensive development and testing programme throughout 2018.

Priced at £1,295, the player is based on the streaming module found in Leema’s Quasar amplifier (£2,995). The addition of a ESS 9018 Sabre DAC, with 32-bit Hyperstreamä DAC architecture and proprietary jitter eliminator technology, is clained to deliver unmatched clarity when streaming. 

Highly flexible, the Elements Streamer can both ‘push’ and ‘pull’ music to and from suitable DLNA/UPnP devices on the same network, enabling unlimited music streaming across a wide range of networked devices around the home. Which includes smartphones and smart devices, tablets, laptops, computers, NAS drives and streaming music servers, such as Leema Acoustics’ recently launched Sirius (£3,995). Control is via the free mconnect Play app available for Android and iOS.

The Elements Streamer has built-in support for a number of music streaming services including Tidal, Deezer, Qobuz and  vTuner radio; Spotify connect is also supported, along with file playback from Dropbox and Microsoft OneDrive, plus local playback from USB drives. 

Elements’ connectivity suite includes both balanced and unbalanced outputs, optical and coaxial digital outputs, as well as a USB input and Ethernet port. Twin Wi-Fi antennas provide increased signal stability and an IEC inlet socket enables the use of high-performance power cables. In a further nod towards its audiophile credentials, the Elements Streamer benefits from a high-quality, low-noise analogue power supply.
