Network System Cocktail Audio X 10

The hi-fi system X 10 cocktail audio (300 Euro) is the classic example of a wool milk sow laying eggs: an audio box that has all current possibilities of music storage, conversion and playback on it.

No, dear stereoplay readers: with the test of Microanlagen we do not strain you in the future. But exceptions prove the rule, and we make such an exception for the System X 10 Cocktail audio. So we’re not so wrong. This shows the active participation of our last Prize puzzle to the X 10. There were three times as many entries as usual – sure due to the profit, because the Korean manufacturer has created a highly interesting device that combines a handful of great features.

The basis is an amplifier with 2 x 30 watt, which can be fed from different sources. A Network audio player, a comfortable Web radio and a/CD / DVD drive. A hard drive can be easily and directly from the CD drive, or USB direct recording of Internet radio or line in filling.

Also playing are possible from and recording to USB, as well as the dubbing of ribbed CDs on MP3 players or music phones (except Apple). The highlight: The whole thing inside a for this diversity is very small and compact enclosure, which measures just even 18 x 10 x 15 cm.

A color display with nine cm diagonal, which is still readable from several meters distance helps in the operation. Symbols are associated with the function groups which immediately indicate if as no internal hard disk or a network available. In addition to music and radio stations are – if available – also covers or station logos displayed.

The X uses 10 on PC or NAS hard drives with UPnP Server software over the network. As an update, a rendering of UPnP is planned to allow the operation via Smartphone. The network player works easily and quickly.

Similarly, the optical drive that is running as a slot-in and is hardly noticeable on the front panel. In addition to audio CDs are also data CD-Rs / – RWs and DVD – Rs /-RWs in all music formats supported by the system play. With built-in hard drive, CDs can be or rip tracks from and save them in WAV, FLAC, MP3, OGG.

For information about artists, et cetera, the X accesses 10 on the FreeDB database, either online or via an updatable version, which can be stored on the hard disk. Ripped is first to WAV, then the X makes a transformation into the desired formats 10 in the background. Transcode is also independent of the RIP function can be used – as for example for images from the Web radio or analog sources via the line input.

The specificity is ripped CDs into a database automatically creates the X 10 on the hard disk to be classified. This music is so not in directories and is thus not directly copied. For individual albums and titles, but there an export function that allows also the transfer to MP3 players via USB.

Regardless of the database a directory structure is possible on the hard drive, for his own recordings. USB slave, the X can be connected with 10 on the PC, then can the plate by drag & drop is quickly filled with music are. It can be subsequently maintained in the database a what must be but not necessarily because the X 10 on such music files can directly access.

For cooling, the device works with a fan that is virtually only audible when no music playing. As a hard disk, we recommend a quiet running 2.5-inch type with 3.5-inch adapter. The CD drive is silent, but audible when fast ripping in CD mode. The drive was through a low jitter.

The X offers 10 WAV, FLAC, MP3 and OGG formats. Possible playback is also highly resolved up to 192 kilohertz, is on 48 kHz downgesampelt. Since this is however done by integral parts, no sound degradation occurs – except for the circumcision of the frequency range at 20 kHz -.

In the listening test, the X was able to convince 10 in all its kinds of application. It was balanced and fresh. The sine wave output is 2 x 30 watts into eight ohms, there are only 2 x 17 Watts into 4 Ohms.

Boxes offer the manufacturer’s, we advise and recommend the Canton GLE 410.2 couple price from 320 euros. Who the X 10 right would like to exploit, should choose the active Nubert nuPro A 10 for 470 euros.
