Now this looks interesting. Digital only input, 50w a side.

Like the minimalist look.
The distributor is a little sparse with detail. Some of these amplifiers are rated peak with large distortion. Perhaps this is not one of them.
Pretty ... and pretty proud of it
Only one input though, I don't get it, it's like building a sonos connect:amp from bits.
No signature worth mentioning...
I thought that too, but I guess it's better/cheaper than buying a Connect + AE if you want to go the Airplay way.
Well, you still need the Apple TV, so it's not going to work out that much cheaper and you're then left with a system that can ONLY play from Apple sources. Dunno, it just seems like a single input dac and amp, which isn't that interesting at all...
but you don't need to connect it to an Apple TV if you don't want to be restricted to play from only Apple sources. I'm pretty much sure some peoples favorite Sosos would be a good match too.
Giro, InTheGroove, Digit, ClassicOne, MG12
My thought was that it would fit nicely on my computer desk shelf. The one below my iMac, with its digital output...
I was giving it serious consideration for a small Squeezebox Touch system. Lets hope some independent reviews appear soon.

Stereo - PC/NAS (Synology DS212J), Squeezebox Touch via CAT6, MF A3.2 Amp, Monitor Audio Silver S8
Well I appreciate that but then where do I plug the turntable in?
obviously this product is targeted at the market who wee on analog sources, don't you think?
Or any other source then? Just seems stupidly limited, at least stick a USB input on there or something.
limited it is indeed.
as for the lack of a USB input; you can always get yourself a USB/spdif converter (like hiface from M2Tech) if you're really in dire need of plugging your computer into this thing and your onboard soundcard doesn't include a spdif out.
Hang on JD, what...you're not saying you'd, put, I mean...ohh....!

Or I could just buy something else a bit more flexible, see what I mean?
"this is Pure Digital Amplification"
Ok. How does that work?
AVA Media's statement is unequivocal on this point. (But they fail to explain it) so I don't want to hear about how the digital signal is converted to analogue at any stage
Hopefully Clare can explain the 'technicals' as their PR person.
(Ok I know this is a wee bit unreasonable, but why do companies make these claims when it's a technical impossibility? It's as likely to be sending amplified 0s and 1s to speakers as amplified sparrows or cheese flans!)
