ADOT (Audiophile Digital Optical Technology) has announced new suite of audiophile-grade optical fibre kits, said to deliver better sound quality from audio streaming.

The company, connected to Melco Syncrets in Japan, specialises in optical fibre upgrade kits for better sound quality when streaming music over networks.

The company’s plug ‘n’ play optical fibre upgrade kits introduce high-quality fibre in place of the noisy copper found in Ethernet connections, effectively isolating hi-fi systems from interference.

Based around ADOT’s MC01 media convertor, which converts the (copper) RJ45 Ethernet cable from the router, to a higher-quality SFP fibre connection, the kits are placed between residential routers and hi-fi systems, and allow the technology to isolate audio networks from residential networks.

Streaming devices already equipped with an SFP input, such as the Melco Audio S100 data switch, can readily accept the fibre connection. Other devices can also benefit by adding a second MC01 media convertor linked via optical fibre cable.

The ADOT project is led by Melco Audio’s Surrey-based UK and European distributor, ADMM, to optimise the functionality of audio over fibre. ADMM, along with a team of Melco users and technology partners worked to establish the best performance from the technology.

Three ADOT kit options are available: MC01 Kit 1, 2 and 3. Each comprises a MC01 media convertor, a 1.5 m Duplex fibre cable, plus a matched pair of Duplex SFP fibre adapters. The MC02 kit adds a linear power supply and the MC03 kit adds a custom-built PLiXiR low-noise power supply with three-stage noise reduction.

The MC01 Kit 1, Kit 2 and Kit 3 sell for £349, £399 and £750 respectively. The additional MCO1 convertor (which allows the use of a device that does not have SFP port) is £179.

ADOT fibre is available in 5m, 10m, 15m and custom lengths of up to 200 m from £20 All ADOT kits are available now via ADMM (Audiophile Digital Music Masters), the Melco distributor
