Digital Sound from Your iPod into Any Analog System
A Digital iPod Dock and a DAC in a Simple, Easy-to-Connect Package
The iStreamer is a high performance audio interface that allows an Apple iPad, iPhone or iPod and a home entertainment system to become perfect partners. With an iStreamer connected, enjoy true CD quality sound with the convenience of having all your music on one device.
"This box sounds focused and preserves the spatial cues that
create out-of-the-speaker images from good recordings. You’ll amaze your
friends when you show them the quality of sound emanating from a humble
iPhone or iPod. If you do want to play music from an ‘iDevice’ through
your HiFi system, how else are you going to do it? Using a regular
analog iPod dock? The iStreamer delivers way better sound than that, and
at a price that won’t break the bank!"
– John Bamford, HiFi News
Simply plug your iPad, iPhone or iPod into the iStreamer; plug the iStreamer into its included power supply and your home entertainment system. From the iPod 'App' on iPad or iPhone or directly on iPod simply push 'play' and enjoy unmatched sound quality and convenience. Using ultra high performance circuitry and host mode of operation (eliminating interface jitter), the iStreamer renders the CD player and CD library obsolete. For the first time, enjoy a level of sound quality never before possible from a portable audio device.
The iStreamer provides full support for applications designed to run on an iPad,iPhone or iPod. The iStreamer allows
you to connect to a home entertainment, television or stereo system to
listen in high quality to Internet radio, streaming music and movies
from providers such as Rhapsody, Napster, Pandora, Netflix and other
12VDC or 115VAC Power supply
iPods, iPads and iPhones simply don't have enough battery power to supply both the iStreamer and play music, so HRT includes an outboard power supply that plugs into the Mini-USB connector. The iStreamer is available with two different power supplies, one plugs directly into 115VAC US wall sockets, the other is a cigarette lighter adapter for use in cars, boats and RVs. Either power supply can be used with any iStreamer, as both power supplies deliver 5VDC @ 2.1Amps. Unless the iStreamer will be dedicated exclusively for vehicle use, we recommend purchasing the version with the 115VAC power supply and adding the HRT 12VDC adapter.
Do not use other DC adapters with the iStreamer; the HRT 12VDC adapter is unique in that it delivers a full 2.1Amps of current, 2x - 4x more current than the generic DC adapters used for cell phones etc. This allows charging of all iDevices, including the iPad even while they are being used to play music through the iStreamer!
