The new streaming amp/DAC is the latest addition to the company’s Stellar series and will be on display at the Bristol Show 2016.

Leema has fitted the Quasar with dual mono output sections, delivering 200W into 8 ohms. The internal DAC is based on Leema’s own Quattro-infinity design found in its flagship Libra DAC, which offers “faithful conversion for digital data to analogue signal”.

Quasar features three coaxial and three optical digital inputs alongside Leema’s M1 asynchronous USB interface and Bluetooth is onboard too for wireless streaming.

The DAC will play back hi-res audio formats up to 24-bit/192kHz and supports DLNA/UPnP streaming, with a dedicated app available for Android and Apple devices. Music streaming service Deezer and vTuner Radio come preinstalled, with others due to be added in the future.

The Leema Acoustics Quasar will be launched later in 2016, priced £2995, but you’ll be able to have a sneak preview at the Bristol Show.

I don't know who 'Max

I don't know who 'Max Langridge' is but cut 'n paste jobs don't merit a byline.

How about an opinion now-and-then Max?  Or a little bit of background about Leema maybe? Who are they? Where are they? Do you know that they are built in the same factory that makes cutting edge automation electronics for milking parlours (Davlec Ltd) and that they are based in Wales? (Got to be something there.)

Why not actually try and get someone (anyone) motivated  to drag their miserable carcass to Bristol to see the frugging thing by using the power of the English language.

Get us excited about Leema!

Pretend it's a new phone or yet another pair of earbuds if that helps.

A touch harsh, Chebby

Max is barely out of short trousers and very much learning his trade. But you make a fair general point and I will make sure he takes your feedback on board.

Ok i'll admit i'd been re

Ok i'll admit i'd been re-reading a lot of old LJK Setright (Car) and P.J. O'Rourke (Car &Driver) articles before I got to Max's missive. Sorry Max.

In Max's defence...

This is a straight news story ie a simple report of the facts. It is not an opinion piece, feature or review. There is plenty of scope for that kind of thing elsewhere.

And to compare Max (who is, as Joe says, learning his trade) with LJK Setright who was one of the most talented and eloquent automotive journalists I have ever read (yes, I too was an avid fan of his Car columns) is a bit harsh.
