The Limetree NETWORK II is a high-class network player or audio renderer which can play back music from streaming providers and local storage media in studio master quality. Connection to the network is established via a LAN cable or WLAN. In addition it is equipped with a USB port for connecting harddisk drives and other USB storage media. Beside an analog line-level output, the network player also has an excellent sounding headphone output.
The LINDEMANN streaming platform offers a studio master grade reproduction. Either through a LAN connection or wireless via WLAN. Due to WPS, integrating the device into your existing system is just a breeze. Moreover, the ARM core high-performance processor and the web update feature make the platform absolutely future-proof.
The LINDEMANN app is available for Android and iOS, both for smartphones and tablets. It enables to play back content from all major streaming providers, music servers and USB storage media. The album-oriented programming excels by smooth browsing and an easy, intuitive operation.
Technologically the Limetree NETWORK II offers quite a few highlights: with the ES9038 Hypersteam2-DAC we use one of the currently best digital-analog converters, clocked by an ultimate precision MEMS femto clock. The result is a particularly transparent and at the same time ”analog“ sound quality.
The IR remote control, which is included in the delivery, allows not only to set the volume level, but also to navigate through playlists or on a CD.
As an extra feature the Limetree NETWORK II offers a volume control in the analog domain which has been realized using a resistor network. The otherwise usual digital volume control has been waived completely. Especially with medium and low volume levels, this solution delivers more details and body.
Via USB the Limetree NETWORK II supports the docking of external CD-ROM drives (e.g. Apple USB SuperDrive) and turns into a high-end CD player without much effort or cost! The drive is automatically recognized and the CD playback can be controlled by the LINDEMANN app or the IR remote. Thereby the CD data are cached in a memory and then streamed.
The Limetree NETWORK II has a built-in high-quality headphone amp which can drive headphones from 16 ohms up. Via the rear line output amplifiers or active speakers may be connected. The level can be set independently for both outputs.
The Limetree NETWORK II offers a Bluetooth function which enables a wireless music playback e.g. from smartphones or tablets. At the same time the A2DP Bluetooth audio transmission protocol ensures the very best sound quality.
A special highlight is our multi-room function which allows to run several streamers in different rooms separately or coupled. These are conveniently controlled via the LINDEMANN app.
