Innuos has debuted at AXPONA in the US a Next-Gen Power Supply Upgrade for their flagship Statement Music Server and Streamer.
This Upgrade is the result of lnnuos ongoing Research and Development efforts in close collaboration with their long-term partner Dr. Sean Jacobs. The impressive improvement in sound quality is achieved by an innovative Power Supply design as well as significant component upgrades:
The Power section uses two custom-designed ARC6 AC/DC modules. Each module contains a new high-precision Active Rectifier board as well as a massive 70mH DC Choke. Additionally, there’s almost 4 times more capacitance provided by six Mundorf caps. The ARC6 modules are mounted on the new Adaptive Vibration Control (AVC) platform. It uses a combination of Panzerholz wood with a specific density gel layer. This combination is highly effective at dampening high-frequency vibration coming from the chassis.
In the Server section, the Regulator modules include a dedicated CPU Booster module, providing up to 75A of current to the CPU for faster transients. New Audio Note KAISEI capacitors smooth all rail further, benefitting all the main components: Motherboard, USB Reclocker, Ethernet Clock module and SSD.
The results are crystal clear: lncreased realism with even more detailed textures, expansive soundstage and improved dynamics.
Following lnnuos’ philosophy of supporting existing customers in taking their systems to the next level through upgrades, when possible, the Innuos Statement Next-Gen Power Supply Upgrade will be available as an option for both new or existing units. The recommended prices for a new unit with the Next-Gen Power Supply Upgrade will be as follows:
- 17,300 Eur/16,500 GBP/21,700 USD/28,200CAD for the 1TB version
- 17,600 Eur/16750 GBP/22,100 USD/28,700CAD for the 2TB version
- 18,200 Eur/17300 GBP/22,900 USD/29,700CAD for the 4TB version
- 19,400 Eur/18400 GBP/24,500 USD/31,700CAD for the 8TB version
Usability and audiophile performance. These two principles have been at odds with one another in the Music Server and Digital Audio world for a lang time, but Innuos, founded in 2009, set out to change this. They maintain their vision that high-quality audio does not mean compromising in ease-of-use. Through precise matching of their bespoke hardware and in-house developed software, Innuos music servers and Streamers continue to prove that its still possible to push the digital source to new levels.
