With better sound and more features than any product in its class, the Olive O4HD will turn your stereo into a high performance HD music system.
The Olive O4HD is the most reviewed and awarded music server today, and the first one to be engineered for true HD sound. To achieve its outstanding sonic performance every single detail has been optimised towards this one goal. Its audio circuitry is centred around the leading Burr-Brown DAC from Texas Instruments. Its power-efficient design allows an innovative fan-less cooling. And its fine aluminum enclosure eliminates resonances and operational noise. Your music has never sounded so good.
24-bit DAC with 192kHz up-sampling
The heart of the O4HD analogue output stage is TI's top-of-the-line PCM1792 DAC with 24K gold-plated connectors. It reproduces HD sound in full 24-bit/192 Khz quality, revealing all the nuances and subtleties of the orginal recording. It also automatically up-samples all your non-HD content to 192kHz, achieving an incredible purity in high frequencies and low-level detail.
HD music. Preloaded.
The O4HD comes preloaded with 10 HD tracks in 24-bit/176.4 kHz by Grammy award-winning Reference Recordings. With more than 250 times the resolution of regular audio CDs, you'll hear the HD difference immediately. It's like having a live performance in your home.
No heat. No fan. No problem
The Olive O4HD uses power efficient components and a sophisticated cooling concept to eliminate the noisy fan. So you will be the only one whistling along with your music.
Connects to everything. Even to power.
When it comes to flexibility the Olive O4HD knows no limits. The highend DAC features a full arsenal of analogue and digital outputs to your stereo system, as well as a digital input so you can use it's superior sonic performance for other sources. It connects to your TV via HDMI and integrates into your network via high-speed wireless or wired connection. An input for an external IR receiver allows you to use the Infrared remote control even if the O4HD is out of sight. Then again, why would you want to hide a design masterpiece like the O4HD?
