Micromega's Airstream Wireless DAC: More Than An Apple Airport Express
5/27/2010 5:22 AM
his June 2010 Residential Systems print edition review of Micromega’s
WM-10 AirStream wireless DAC, Dennis Burger says there are more
differences between the AirStream and AirPort Express than merely the
former’s brushed metal chassis. For one, he says, Micromega has
equipped the AirStream with a much beefier power supply and a fancy new
clock to reduce jitter, and has removed the 8P8C Ethernet and USB ports
(or, more accurately, hidden them inside) to completely eliminate the
possibility of any physical contact between the device and a
potentially noise-ridden computer source.
But Dennis isn't the
only one making the these differences understood. The R&D team
behind the WM-10 also wants to make it abundantly clear that its
Wireless DAC much more than just an Apple AirPort Express. Click her
