X45 is a high-resolution audio player and digital audio converter featuring Dual Sabre Reference DAC chips. The X45 features functionality for CD ripping, music and network streaming, vinyl recording and much more!

The Novafidelity X45 is a fantastic High Resolution Hi-Fi Music Server, CD Ripper and Network Streamer all in one box.  It is easy to use and simple to understand what is happening using the full colour screen on the front panel or via your TV using the HDMI output. If you prefer then you can use the custom App designed for use on a tablet.

The unit features both wireless or wired connectivity for instant access to lossless and HD audio formats and Internet Radio. Online music services like TIDAL, Deezer, Napster, Spotify and Qobuz plus Airplay and Spotify Connect are catered for. Equipped with world class components like ESS SABRE³² Reference DAC ES9018K2M, TCXO oscillator and high quality toroidal transformer including isolated power source circuit design technology and in-house R&D know-how for circuit designing ensures that the X45 will deliver a truly great sound experience to you.

The X45 has a killer function that many rippers/servers lack and that is a recording function for internet radio, DAB+/FM Radio, Analog In, Phono In, AUX In and Digital In. You can make your own digital music collection with high quality sound from your analogue sources at 192kHz sample rate.
