Nativ™ has unveiled its new high-resolution music system. At its heart is Nativ Vita™, a music player with a 11.6” touch-screen and simple access to “all music of the world”. It features built-in support for popular streaming services such as Apple Music and Spotify and plays music from your smartphone, computer or NAS.
Nativ Vita™ integrates the latest wireless technologies to stream high fidelity music to virtually any wireless speaker or headphone, or delivers music in bit-perfect quality to your A/V receiver or DAC.
Connect Nativ Vita™ to your TV and enjoy the latest music videos, or conveniently navigate your library on the big screen. Nativ today also introduced Nativ Wave™, a Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) and headphone amplifier that converts the music on Nativ Vita™ or any other digital source. Nativ Wave™ supports all major formats, including DSD, DXD and Meridian’s MQA technology.
“Nativ is a great addition for anyone that loves music.” says Michael Li, CEO and Co-Founder of Nativ. “From audiophiles with high-performance audio and A/V systems to the casual music fan with wireless speaker solutions.
Nativ enhances your existing gear with great new features and allows you to experience music like never before.”
Network music libraries can also be navigated with the pre-installed music interface from Roon*. Large music libraries can be stored directly on the built-in hard disk or SSD drives with up to 4TB capacity.
All music is delivered in bit- perfect quality to your A/V receiver or DAC via the asynchronous USB interface or four outputs for SPDIF and AES/EBU. Nativ Vita™ is designed for High-Resolution Audio and supports playback of DSD up to 11.2896 MHz (Quad-DSD), DXD and PCM files up to 32-bit/384 kHz.
Nativ Vita™ is also the world’s first high-end music player to come with a built-in multidirectional microphone and innovative voice control. Simply tell it what to play, adjust the volume or skip to the next track.
Nativ Wave™’s fully balanced DAC design is based on two Burr-Brown 24-bit/192kHz DSD1792A. It features entirely separated left and right channels, each with its own dedicated linear power supply, analogue circuitry and master clock. The audio clock features two ultra-low phase noise oscillators by Crystek. Analogue processing is done through operational amplifier modules, with German- made WIMA® FP Polypropylene Capacitors delivering superior clarity and dynamic ability.
To address the growing popularity of headphones Nativ Wave™ incorporates a high-end headphone amplifier that is based on the same dual-mono DAC design. It features 100% solid- state topology and delivers high output power of up to 1.75W over various loads. The amp’s high-speed buffer with a slew rate above 2000 V/ms prevents odd order distortion anomalies. Volume control is performed purely in the analogue domain.
Clean power to the DAC is delivered by Nativ Pulse™, a linear power supply with dedicated supplies for the analogue and digital sections, 25 separate ultralow noise linear regulators and a multi-rail toroidal transformer to suppress power line disturbance and keep noise contamination to a minimum.
All Nativ products are hand-build in small production lots and crafted from premium-grade 7000 series aluminum, Japanese-made Asahi® glass and solid American Oak or Walnut. An optional wall-mount allows you to place Nativ Vita™ and Nativ Wave™.
Nativ is launching its products through a crowd-funding campaign at indiegogo. During the campaign Nativ Vita™ and Nativ Wave™ are available in limited quantities for as low as $699, saving 50% or more over the official retail price.
