QED Introduces ‘uPlayStream’, A ‘Breakthrough’ Ultra-Affordable, Hi-Fi, Network Music Streamer


QED, the UK’s leading hi-fi and home cinema ‘connectivity’ company, is pleased to introduce ‘uPlay Stream’ the latest addition to its highly successful range of wireless streaming accessories.



Talking about the new product, Jack Fox,QED’s Brand Manager stated: “We believe the new uPlayStream ‘moves the goal posts’. For the first time, users can experience genuine Hi-Fi sound quality from a product that is extremely easy to set up and use, and a fraction of the cost of its competitors.”


“It enables people to access all the high quality music they’ve stored electronically on their computer, tablet, smartphone or network storage, and enjoy it streamed wirelessly through their existing audio or home cinema system.”


Asked to expand on his claim that the uPlay Stream is a ‘break through’ product, Jack Fox said: “QED’s design team has literally ‘thought outside the box’. Conventional hi-fi network streamers are large and have beautifully finished casework, knobs, buttons and exotic displays – all of which are very expensive and, more importantly, completely unnecessary in today’s ‘Smartphone’age.”


“uPlay Stream on the other hand, is a small, neat box that plugs into your system but never needs to be seen. Why? Because controlling the uPlay Stream couldn't be more straight forward. You simply download the user friendly, dedicated uPlay ‘apps’that are available for both iOS and Android.”


The uPlay Stream connects your digitally stored music collection to your audio or home cinema system. Allowing you to browse and stream high resolution music files using Wi-Fi or Ethernet from mobile devices, server devices and even‘Cloud’ storage, such as ‘Drop BoxTM’ and ‘Sky DriveTM


The discreet, ultra-compact uPlay Stream boasts a high resolution ‘Wolfson’ DAC(compatible with files up to 24-bit/96kHz). It plugs into any available line level (auxiliary) input of a hi-fi, audio system, soundbar, television, speaker dock or home cinema system. The uPlay Stream delivers outstanding sound quality; is fully DLNA and UPnP compatible and supports MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV, FLAC and Apple Lossless audio formats.


Up to eight uPlay Streams can be used together to build a high quality, very cost effective multi-room system, in up to eight separate rooms.


The QED uPlay Stream has a UK recommended retail price of only £149.95 inc vat. It is available now from QEDauthorised dealers and at www.qed.co.uk
