432 EVO Aeon
The 432 EVO Aeon is one of the finest audiophile music servers regardless of price. Consistently preferred over the Taiko Extreme or Innuos' best at a fraction the price.
The 432 EVO series, the Aeon comes complete with a high-quality CD ripper, CD player, music server, and streamer. It utilizes the identical low-latency, low-jitter, real-time kernel, optimized Linux OS as the $16K top-of-the-line 432 EVO Master as well as the same advanced upsampling and pitch conversion options.
The Aeon comes preinstalled with Roon, Logitech Media Server, Tidal, Qobuz, Spotify, and internet radio. And works with iPeng and Squeezebox controllers.
The Aeon has the same audio transformation options as the $16K 432 EVO Master for both PCM and DSD file formats. It can take 16-bit, 24-bit, or 32-bit files and upsample them to 88.2KHz, 96KHz, 176.4KHz, 192KHz, 352.8KHz, 384KHz, 706.6KHz, or 768KHz. It can also output the pitch to 415Hz, 426Hz, 430.5Hz, 440Hz, and 444Hz, in addition to the magical 432Hz Pythagorean tuning. Output can be bit-perfect or upsampling and pitch tuning can be done independently or simultaneously.
The Aeon comes with an anti-resonance spring mounted 2TB SSD and there is an upgrade option for a 4TB or 8TB SSD.
The Aeon comes with a three SBooster BOtW MkII linear power supplies, one 12V for the computer section, one 12V for the CPU, and one 9V for the isolated SOtM USB output card and Master Clock. There are also outputs for USB and Ethernet through the ports on the main board. The Aeon can be upgraded at any time to a Master.
The 432 EVO Aeon is among the best audiophile music servers regardless of price.
