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 more reliable multi-room 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.
Model-One features a Digital Optical Input, into which Songbird can be plugged. You may connect Songbird to Model-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.
