Product of the year - Music streamers - What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision - 2011

"An ultra-competitive streaming debut from Cambridge Audio: a must-audition"


Thanks to a software update, the Cambridge Audio NP30 is now fully compatible with the BT100 Bluetooth receiver. Simply pair the receiver up with your smart phone, tablet or any other Bluetooth media device and then stream your stored music or music streaming services via top quality Bluetooth aptX (receiver available seperately).


With major awards from What Hi-Fi and CES to name but two, the Cambridge Audio NP30 is the hottest music streamer on the market today!


However you experience digital music, the idea behind the NP30 is to get the very best sound quality and ease of access from it. First off there's the streaming capability. By either using a wireless* or Ethernet home hub connection you can access your stored music on NAS (Network Attached Storage) drive, laptop or PC. What's more, the NP30 makes it easy to access. Using a simple file sharing system called UPnP (Universal Plug n' Play), set-up is simple and there's no further software required. Where the NP30 really scores over similar network streaming devices is in its ability to playback very high quality audio files, including 24-bit FLAC and WAV files. In practise this means that, provided you don't mind using up extra storage space on your hard drive, you can now stream music that's better quality than CD.


The Cambridge Audio NP30 will also let you access Internet radio and streaming music services without the need for your PC or Mac to be switched on. Again, it's the manner in which Cambridge Audio have refined the user interface that makes the NP30 special here. Using a new and specially developed site called Stream Magic, the NP30 accesses 20,000 Internet radio stations that have been assessed for their reliability and performance.


There's also a new free Apple/Android app that lets you have control over the radio stations with the comfort of your iPhone/iPod Touch. Stream Magic also seamlessly manages all your streaming content and is, in effect, a very user friendly way of bringing together and controlling all your digital sources. Finally, the NP30 has twin USB sockets. With one of these mounted at the front and one at the back, the NP30 lets you easily connect up digital storage devices such as memory sticks or smart phones and play stored music in true, hi-fi quality.


As you'd expect from a Cambridge Audio product, a great deal of attention has been lavished on the sound quality side of the NP30. In addition to being able to play 24-bit music files, this network music player features genuine audiophile componentry. A Wolfson DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor), premium grade power supply and electronic components ensure that, whatever the digital source, the NP30 will do its very best in producing the highest quality audio available at its price. Cambridge Audio has also paid great attention to reducing jitter. Implementing a host of jitter reduction techniques including a bit-perfect signal path, the NP30 gives a greatly superior sound quality to other, less focused, music streamers.

To sum up, whatever the source and whatever the file quality, the NP30 gives you a sound quality that's more detailed, dynamic and believable than other network players. It also has that long held Cambridge Audio quality of simply making music fun to listen to!
