Budget Component of the Year (2020) -TONEAudio
Your favorite sources and streams in one place
You’ll be amazed at the variety of supported music streams, starting with Spotify, Qobuz, Tidal, Amazon Prime, and Napster. That’s not to mention thousands of Internet radio stations via iHeartRadio, vTuner, and TuneIn. (Streaming service fees may apply.) But wait, there’s more. You can also enjoy music stored on your personal devices via Windows® DLNA, Apple® AirPlay® 1 or Bluetooth 4.2. And the Songbird streamer connects to your network via Ethernet or 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi.
The resolution of 24 bits and 192 kHz
You can stream High Resolution audio from Qobuz, Amazon, and Tidal. (Streaming service fees may apply.) This goes way beyond CD-quality sound. The Compact Disc represented the range from dead silence to the loudest possible sounds with 16-bit quantizing. CD was also limited to a sampling rate of 44 kHz. But technology has moved far forward. Spectacular 24-bit/192-kHz digital audio delivers an altogether higher level of fidelity from the Songbird streamer’s analog output. (Digital output is 16 bits/44.1kHz)
This performance is now yours to savor with the Songbird streamer.
Connect to any audio system
If your audio system has an analog or an optical digital input – and almost every system does – you’re ready to connect the Songbird streamer. The streamer also includes its own analog and digital inputs, so you don’t lose an input you may already be using. You can even use Songbird’s optical input to add a digital input to a vintage system that doesn’t have one!

Songbird provides lossless decoding of music files from High-Resolution services up to 24-bit/192 kHz. In order to provide compatibility with legacy audio equipment, and to facilitate reliable multi-room streaming capability, its digital output is resampled to CD quality resolution of 16 bit/ 44.1kHz.
Songbird plugs into your “Line / Ceramic Cartridge” RCA Input. This works automatically alongside your turntable, which is plugged into the “Magnetic Phono” input.
Andover-One features a Digital Optical Input, into which Songbird can be plugged. You may connect Songbird to Andover-One via its Analog Aux Input.
(Updated Dec 7, 2020) Gapless is only supported with the native apps from the providers, using airplay or DLNA connections to transmit from another device to SongBird. Gapless requires internal storage, which this current chip version does not support.
Updates are distributed to all product owners via the Songbird Control app. The option will appear in the app when it's available to download.
Songbird can act as a Personal Hotspot, to which your iPhone can connect directly. This requires Songbird to have a hardwired ethernet connection to the internet.
Songbird favors Ethernet connection over WiFi.
