The Ophelia Little Gem
is our entry level music server, it is limited to PCM only because of itís smaller Ram power and CPU power. The Little Gem will play all PCM formats from 16bit to 24bit high-res using a Linux-based Operating System. Has an internal switch-mode power supply, and can output stereo sound via conventional single-ended (RCA) outputs, also has SPDIF outputs for connecting to an external DAC. This means you have the option of using the Little Gem as a fully fledged source with its own built-in DAC or if you have your own and fancier Digital To Analog converter, you may use the Little Gem as a transport. Our entry level Little Gem does not offer auto-rip. A great way to get you started!
* For auto-rip, please contact us and we can accommodate you!What the Little Gem gives you
