Housed in an aluminum enclosure precision-machined from solid billets, the durable and beautiful microStreamer is modern, sleek and compact. It is simple to use and provides a level of improvement in sound quality that must be heard to be believed. To improve your computers' sound quality, the microsStreamer takes over the job of processing the digital music stream from the computer - a task critical for producing great sound. Do not be fooled by its modest cost or small size: the microStreamer's ability to transform the sound of your computer, smart phone or tablet's music files or streaming audio into a state of the art musical experience will make a believer out of even the most critical listener.
As with other HRT products, the set up and operation of the microStreamer is super easy: simply use the included USB cable and hook the input of the microStreamer into any USB port on the host computer, smart phone or tablet and select it as the default outpost device. Now you are ready to experience your music with the best sound possible.
Operating jitter-free via the use of its high-performance asynchronous USB transceiver, the microStreamer, when plugged in, automatically performs an 'electronic handshake' with the computer or other host and tells it that the microStreamer is to get all audio signals sent to it instead of the Digital-to-Analog converter (DAC) that is built into the computer, and that's it! To enjoy the music in your home entertainment system optimally, connect the microStreamer's fixed output jack* to any available line-level analog input on your integrated amplifier, preamp, receiver, or powered loudspeakers. Alternatively, connect your favorite headphones to microstreamer's variable output port.
