Leema has released the new upgraded 2018 Stream IV streaming CD player and the space-saving Elements Streamer
Let’s take a closer look at both of the new products:
The new compact-chassis Elements Streamer is based upon the streaming module used in the recently launched Quasar streaming amp/DAC (£2,995), with the addition of an ESS Sabre DAC, enabling the device to be used as a standalone unit in a wide range of audio systems.
The Elements Streamer has built-in support for a number of streaming services including Tidal, Deezer, Qobuz and vTuner radio. Spotify Connect is also supported, along with file playback from Dropbox and Microsoft Onedrive. Local playback from USB drives is also supported.
The device can ‘pull’ music and stream audio from any suitable DLNA/UPnP device on the same network, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, computers, NAS drives and music servers, including Leema’s forthcoming Sirius music server. Price is £1,095.
STREAM IV (STREAMING CD PLAYER)
The new full-width Stream IV streaming CD is the fourth incarnation of Leema’s source component. The player shares many of the internals with the Elements Streamer with the inclusion of a Stream Unlimited-sourced CD player.
Housed in a full-width chassis designed to complement the newly launched Pulse IV amp/DAC, the Stream IV can playback from virtually every source: CD, streaming, analogue and vinyl systems plus all manner of digital devices. Price is £2,095.
