The Novafidelity X50Pro is a reference-class digital source for audiophiles looking to manage any size of hi-res digital music collection, connecting conveniently to external DACs to reproduce flawless and faithful digital audio transmission. The X50Pro is a multi-purpose music server which functions as a media player, CD ripper, network streamer, music recorder and much more for music lovers.
As the Novafidelity X50Pro is equipped with an ultra-low phase noise oscillator (CCHD-575 from Crystek Corporation), an extensively shielded SMPS with aluminium cover and a highly specified PCB designed in-house, the X50Pro guarantees sublime sound quality with jitter and electrical noises minimised to negligible levels.
Utilising a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 processor and powerful XMOS microcontroller the Novafidelity X50Pro offers versatile software features, again developed in-house. This alongside a beautiful glass-sanded aluminium enclosure, crafted by precision CNC machining, presents the Novafidelity X50Pro as a world-class option for pure digital music playback and serving for the most demanding of audiophiles.
Custom designed software
Equipped with a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 processor running at 1.0GHz, 64Bit/1000MIPS microcontroller and custom-designed software, the Novafidelity X50Pro is a reference pure digital streaming platform, ready to deliver outstanding sound and versatile functions.
Vast experience, know-how and advance technology in digital circuit design with carefully selected components, such as the ultra-low phase noise oscillator, CCHD-575 from Crystek Corporation are applied perfectly in the Novafidelity X50Pro to produce class leading sound quality. To minimise electrical noise, the SMPS is perfectly shielded within a high-quality aluminium casing.
XMOS 8-core microcontroller
The Novafidelity X50Pro can support up to Native DSD256 via its I²S digital output (on RJ45 & HDMI x 2) for audiophiles who want to use a highly specified DAC with I²S digital input. To increase compatibility with other devices, the X50Pro offers two(2) I²S HDMI out.
2-bay RAID storage system
The Novafidelity X50Pro features two drive bays which accept 3.5″/2.5″ SATA HDDs and SSDs. According to user preference, these can be set to one of three RAID system modes – mirror, (back-up) stripe (increased access speed) and big (up to 16TB total storage)
The entire Novafidelity X50Pro enclosure is precisely assembled from beautiful glass-sanded aluminium, fabricated by precision CNC machining.3899
