HOW DOES THE HAP-S1 WORK?
Does The HAP-S1 Stream The Music?
•No, the HAP-S1 doesn't stream the music across the network. Instead it copies all the music from the users PC across the network, onto the internal HDD of the system.
•Each time music is ripped/downloaded/transfered into the computer's music folder it will automatically be backed up onto the HAP-S1 hard drive.
What Are The Benefits of Using The HDD?
•Unlike with DLNA, playback is instantaneous. No need to wait for the network to stream the tracks.
•No stability issues with the network as music is all localised.
•Fast responsive app control, no lag waiting for your music server to catch up.
•No loss in sound quality.
•PC can remain switched off while user accesses music collection.
Music Copied Directly Onto The HAP-S1 Hard Drive
After connecting the HAP-S1 to the same network as the PC and installing the HAP Music Transfer software, users can set up the computer to back up their music to the system. They can transfer all their music or select specific tracks, albums or folders.
The HAP-S1 will playback a huge range of files including native Hi-Res files, such as DSD and FLAC, but will also enhance the quality of standard music files (MP3, AAC, WMA, etc) using the Sony unique technology DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine).
The HAP-S1 includes an integrated Amplifier, so Speakers can be plugged directly into the product, without the need to out put into an additional Amplifier.
