Australian distributor for Olive, International Dynamics, announced that it will be bringing the new O6HD which comes with a 10.1-inch touchscreen to Australia later this month.
This music server has an aluminium enclosure eliminates operational noise and resonances. It also has an angled front includes a huge 10.1-inch glass-on-glass colour
touch-screen, both of which allow for easy navigation of the music
The O6HD comes with a balanced differential DAC, with a matched pair of TI’s top-of-the-line 24-bit/192 kHz DAC modules (Burr-Brown PCM1792) for the inverted and non-inverted signals on each of the right and left channels.
It also comes with a separate temperature-compensated crystal oscillator which claims to eliminate jitter. In addition, the 6HD uses the latest TI SRC4194 to up-sample any lower audio standard to 24-bit/ 384 kHz.
The Olive 6HD also features a separate 24-bit/192 kHz PCM1792 DAC and TPA6120A2 High Performance Audio Amplifier for headphone use.
The music library has capacity to store up to 6,000 CDs in original quality or up to 20,000 High Definition tracks on the 6HD’s internal 2TB hard disk drive, which is cushioned in 8 layers of noise-cancelling padding. Finally, it also comes with anti-vibration feet which protects it from outside vibrations and resonances.
CEO and co-founder of Olive, Dr. Oliver Bergmann said, “When approaching the O6HD design we sought the highest possible quality for each component, without compromise. Primary for us was creating the most faithful playback of high quality audio in digital format. Nothing has been spared. Supporting 24-bit playback enables a rich and emotional experience not found with other digital music solutions. MP3 files are infamous for compressing tracks to the point of destroying the depth and nuances of a performance, even CDs are incapable of reproducing the way music sounds as it is recorded live in the studio. The O6HD achieves this and is the Olive ideal.”
The Olive O6HD is available in Black or Silver later this month for $6,499
