-LDMS NANO – Network audio adapter NAA (very compact endpoint equipped with USB, RJ45, HDMI )

 

Playback file format: no limitation to format, size or sampling rate, it will play virtually anything.

-Dedicated bespoke audio NAS (20 – 60TB, Soundproofed, SSD buffer and Quad LAN)

Depending on your requirements, LDMS can be configured with native format playback or on the fly up sampling from PCM up to DSD 512, including multichannel. The system is also ready to go beyond DSD512 if desired once adequate DAC chips become available; DSD 1024 and 2048.

Additionally available is a dedicated, audio-optimised NAS (Network Addressed Storage) server, which provides network-fed streaming playback that is at least as good as playback from files stored on locally-attached media, such as internal or USB-attached SSD/hard drives. Storage capacities range from 8TB to 60TB and even beyond. This allows you to get as close to the ultimate dual-server configuration experience as possible (split roles; DAC/Player and library manager), at a fraction of the usual cost. The necessity of a NAS really depends on the library size itself, however, research has shown me that an audio-optimised external NAS server for storage proposes, regardless of the number of drives within the music server itself, is the optimal configuration for the ultimate sonic reproduction. This configuration ensures that it is easier to extend storage space and grow your library without compromising sonic performance, since playback occurs from local LDMS system memory. Communication between the NAS server and the LDMS music playback server is audio-optimised to ensure optimized communication between the two. Naturally, my solution is modular and extensible – in the case of a smaller music library initially, storage can be on an internal/locally-attached device, with the option to migrate to NAS-based library storage in the future, if required, as the music library grows.

 
Lucas Audio Lab can also supply and install solutions to optimize your existing network infrastructure. We are happy to undertake installations of dedicated audio networks and power lines with grounding schemes for audio/video needs.
 
LDMS is designed for reliability and long-life, but most importantly, for peace of mind. As part of our service, you will also receive expert technical support since 95% of issues or product updates can be addressed and resolved via a simple remote connection session.
