The introduction of the Leema Stream IV heralds a new type of source component. Many people have extensive CD collections and for audiophiles, the humble CD will remain the media of choice, but there are now many other ways to access high quality music, such as streaming, Bluetooth and home network drives.
The Leema Stream IV includes a high quality TEAC “Red Book” CD transport for conventional CD replay.
This transport has a solid reputation for digging every bit of information from the humble silver disc.
The DAC section builds on Leema's renowned Quattro infinity topology, enabling faithful conversion from digital data to audio signal.
Cabled digital connectivity includes three co-axial spdif inputs, three optical inputs and Leema's M1 asynchronous USB interface for the very best reproduction of music files directly from a computer.
In addition, a Bluetooth interface is included that allows high quality audio streaming directly from compatible mobile devices. Advanced audio codecs such as aptX are of course supported.
An optional streaming board really expands the capabilities of the Leema Stream IV. Capable of handling most formats at up to 24bit/192kHz, playing music from a NAS drive, home network or other DLNA/UPNP device could not be easier. Dedicated control apps for both Android and Apple devices are available. If using a rooted Android device with Bubble UPNP and open framework installed, it is possible to access online services such as Spotify and Napster by re-streaming the audio via wifi from the Android device.
As with the Leema Pulse IV, the Leema Stream IV has a large graphics display mounted centrally in the front panel. This shows information relevant to the selected source. For instance, when playing a CD, the normal track data/time information is displayed. When streaming, the digital data parameters are shown and when in USB mode, a visual indicator for the feedback data is added.
The Leema Stream IV is truly, a source for the 21st century
