SCV Distribution has been appointed the UK and Ireland representatives for Novafidelity’s streaming and digital music storage products. This move accompanies the launch of several updated models. 

Part of the appeal of the Novafidelity range for SCV was reportedly the sheer number of features found in each model, the sound quality and the overall value this represents. Across the range, versatile abilities can be found such as CD-ripping; up to 8GB built in storage; support for all major streaming services; support for all major file formats including Native DSD and MQA; phono input for vinyl playback, plus recording up to 24bit/192khz from any analogue or digital source; HDMI external screen output.

All models utilise the bespoke MusicX control app for iOS and Android and MusicDB, Novafidelity’s system for music library management. Although each model is capable of managing all music sources through MusicX, MusicDB or webinterace (WebUI), the entire range is also Roon Ready.

Models include the entry level all-in-one X14 (£649), which features built-in Class D amplification, CD ripping, wired and wireless network and Bluetooth connectivity, and the pure digital streamer X50D (£1695) adds digital outputs to the earlier X50 model. The feature set include 16GB raid storage configuration, CD-ripping and digital recording at 24-bit 192khz, built-in DAB radio and much more. 

 Replacing the well regarded X40 is the X45 (£1,999). The X45 takes the existing streamer/DAC format feature set of the X40, and features a Dual Core ARM Cortex A9 processor, 16 core multi-controller and Dual ESS ES9018K2M Sabre DAC chips.

The most recent product release is the X45Pro (£4,999). Essentially the same as the X45, in terms of format and functionality, but with a high-performance Quad Core ARM Cortex A9 processor, 16 Core Microcontroller with Advanced RISC Architecture, OPA627BP Precision High-Speed Operational amplifier, alongside the SABRE PRO Flagship ES9038PRO DAC chip, offering supporting up to PCM 768Khz and native DSD512.
