Luxman Introduces First-Ever Network Transport

The NT-07 supports streaming services, USB, and network file playback via connection to outboard D/A converters.

With the NT-07 network transport, Luxman introduces a specialized component enabling playback of a comprehensive range of digital file-based and streaming audio sources for integration into quality component audio systems.

Luxman NT-07 network transport

“The NT-07 accepts sound files from local storage and music streaming services via Ethernet, USB, and HDMI, provides comprehensive playback control, then outputs audio to any external digital-to-analog converter,” says Jeff Sigmund, president of Luxman America. “As Luxman begins celebrating our 100th anniversary heading into 2025, we’re offering the Luxman NT-07 solution to all audio enthusiasts as a component, allowing musical enjoyment with more depth and variety than ever before.”

As befits a Luxman component, the circuitry, power supply and chassis layout are carefully considered. Luxman engineers identified and reduced all sources of noise. The core stages feature Luxman’s latest generation of high-speed application processor modules. The power supply section is especially robust, fitted with a custom high-capacity transformer and a pair of special 10,000 µF filter capacitors. This highly regulated design maximizes stability while minimizing noise.

Music from multiple sources

Central to the NT-07 is its ability to bring together and control many of today’s premium audio sources.

  • Network Attached Storage (NAS): The RJ-45 Ethernet port receives audio data stored on network hard drives via the industry standard Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) protocol, as well as the OpenHome platform. The NT-07 is particularly well suited for use with audiophile-grade storage devices, thanks to advanced power supply circuitry and noise suppression.
  • USB storage: Front or rear USB 2.0 ports accept files directly from thumb drives and larger USB drives.
  • Subscription streaming services: The NT-07 offers access to 100 million music tracks via popular streaming services (extra-cost subscription required). These include Qobuz, TIDAL, and Spotify, with its recommendation algorithm. In addition, the NT-07 works with TuneIn, a free service that delivers radio and podcasts from around the globe.
  • Planned Roon certification:. The Roon platform plays back music files from iOS, MacOS, and Windows OS devices and supports network streaming with metadata, playlists, personalization, and the ability to display album, track, cover art, and lyrics on a television. The NT-07 is now undergoing certification as a Roon-ready output device.
  • HDMI inputs and outputs with ARC: To support integrated audio/video systems, the NT-07 also provides HDMI in/out terminals. These handle audio signals from televisions, Blu-ray Disc players, game consoles, and other video sources. The NT-07 also supports Audio Return Channel (ARC) and two-channel HDMI audio output with PCM encoding up to 192 kHz sampling and 24-bit quantization.

Supported file formats include WAV, AIFF, FLAC, ALAC, MQA, MP3, AAC, and DSD (in both DSF and DFF versions).

App and Remote Control

The uncluttered front fascia has just one control, the power switch. Users operate the NT-07 by smartphone or tablet with the free Luxman Stream app for iOS and Android devices. The app enables listeners to configure, select sources, select songs, and control playback. A sleek aluminum IR remote control, the supplied RC-30, enables listeners to operate the NT-07 without launching the app. The RC-30 can also control basic playback functions of Luxman disc players and up/down volume of Luxman integrated amplifiers or control amplifiers. To support unified system remote control, the NT-07 features rear-panel 12-volt control input/output terminals.

Luxman NT-07 network transport - internal

The NT-07 requires connection to either any outboard digital-to-analog converter or a disc player featuring internal D/A converter access via its digital inputs, such as the Luxman D-07X, D-10X, D-03X and D-N150. The NT-07 provides digital output via USB, optical, or coaxial terminals. The USB subsystem supports PCM sampling up to 768 kHz/32 bits and DSD sampling up to 22.5 MHz/1 bit. The optical and coaxial outputs achieve up to 192 kHz/24-bit sampling. To accommodate the widest range of D/A converters, the NT-07 provides MQA decoding with three selectable modes, Off, Core Decoding and Pass-Through.

For best results, the intelligent resampling function matches the sampling frequency and bit depth supported by the connected D/A converter and supports PCM at sampling rates from 44.1k to 384 kHz. Luxman provides individual up/down sampling settings.

A large, amber Organic LED display offers track and artist names, elapsed time and details on the audio format type, sampling rate, and bit depth. A clever circle graphic depicts track elapsed time in relation to total time, starting as empty at the beginning and approaching the full circle as the track ends.

The NT-07 network transport is available immediately at a suggested retail price of $7495.
