Thought you might like to know about a fairly new network audio server by Japanese firm fidata. It is expensive (£5900) but the performance compares or exceeds the performance of other state of the art
servers that cost more.
I have been using the fidata for the last six months and the performance has been exceptional. A friend has compared it to a number of other top ends servers and thinks that it is the best out there.
Fidata review here: http://www.the-ear.net/review-hardware/fidata-hfas1-s10u-network-server
If you are considering a top flight server than definitely put the fidata on your list. We have a demo unit available.
USB output to a DAC. Ethernet input from router and out to network audio player. Overall plan dimensions exactly the same as Lumin A1/U1/S1 streamers. On off button on the front panel with white led. Brushed silver. Case made from thick plates of aluminium. It looks classy and sounds amazing.
