The Cocktail Audio N15D is available on Hi-Fi Disposals for $799. I currently have a Primare NP5, which is a great player but the major streaming services (except for Spotify) are integrated. So I have to use UPnP for Tidal and this can be impacted by my Wi-Fi (I don't have a way to connect via ethernet in my lounge room).

 

This player looks like it may be better for me as I can connect my PC / tablet to the N15D using a USB connection and can also buy a Wi-Fi dongle and use the Cocktail Audio app to stream directly from Tidal without having to use UPnP.  My internet is fine when streaming on one device but struggles when streaming on a computer and connecting to my NP5 over UPnP. I can also have a HDD of music added to the device without having to buy a NAS.

 

Are there many people on here with the N15D? If so, how do you find the product? Is the app any good? The review on the Google Play store aren't that positive. Or do you use the web interface control on your computer? Is it easy to save music on the HDD when it is in the N15D, or do you have to remove and connect to a PC to do this? 

 

I'm not sure whether to get the N15D and sell my NP5 and Schiit Modi 3, or wait until I can get a good deal on a Matrix Audio streamer.

Hey Joe,

I speak very highly of the N15D as a streamer (and server) but ONLY if one was using Roon as the control software of choice - the (two) apps that are available for the CA, are quite frankly, absolute ****...

 

My advice would be to consider the Matrix Audio product when one comes along at the right price - excellent DACs/streamers with great apps as well as wifi and Roon certification.

Thanks Mark.

 

I really don't understand why companies develop poor apps to support their products. Did you try the web interface for the N15D too? 

 

I do like the look of the Matrix Audio products, so I may end up waiting until one of those come around at the right price. 

 

Joe

      This includes a RPi 3 B+, 16Gb micro SD card, 2 x Allo Shanti Ultra Low Noise Linear Power Supplies and Allo Digione S/PIDF transport. 
      I had been using Volumio Virtuoso and its native tidal support and BubbleUPnP to stream to the Allo Digione Signature Player
       
      The Digione signature RPi hat requires 2 5V power sources, one is supplied to the RPi (dirty) and the other is for the I2S conversion and S/PDIF reclocking on the Digione signature board. A standard 5V 3A adapter is included to power the RPi, the iFi iPower adaptor and battery pack are included to provide a cleaner power source to the Digione signature board.
