432 EVO High-End
The 432 EVO High-End is an excellent upgrade over standard computers, laptops, Mac Minis, Roon Nucleus, Blue Sound, and even considerably more expensive audiophile music servers from companies such as Lumin, Aurender, Melco, Small Green Computer, Baetis, and Innuos.
The 432 EVO High-End 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 High-End comes preinstalled with Roon, Logitech Media Server, Tidal, Qobuz, Spotify, and internet radio. And works with iPeng and Squeezebox controllers.
The High-End 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 High-End comes with an anti-resonance spring mounted 2TB SSD and there is an upgrade option for a 4TB or 8TB SSD.
The High-End comes with two SBooster BOtW MkII linear power supplies, one 12V for the computer section, and one 9V for the isolated SOtM USB output card. There are also outputs for USB and Ethernet through the ports on the main board. The better 432 EVO models come with additional power supplies or better power supplies, as well as the SOtM master clock. The High-End can be upgraded at any time with additional power supplies and/or a SOtM Master Clock.
The 432 EVO High-End out performs significantly higher priced audiophile music servers.
All models come with a 2-year factory warranty and a 2-week no-risk trial period.
