Stream your music in high resolution

Several factors are essential to enjoy your music in optimal quality.

To make things clearer, let’s break down the ideal audio transmission process step by step.

1. The audio source

First of all, it is necessary that the audio file you want to listen to is of good quality.

For this, there are Lossless offers from many streaming services (Qobuz, Deezer, Tidal and Apple Music in particular).

Having a Lossless file is the guarantee to have an uncompressed and good quality audio file.

MP3 audio file

This type of format, widespread in the 2000s for its low storage capacity, requires sound compression. This results in a loss of frequencies and dynamics.

CD quality

CD quality ensures sound without audible compression and a resolution 4x higher than MP3 quality. This is the kind of format available with Deezer HiFi.

16 bits / 44.1 kHz

Hi-Res Format

Popular with audiophiles for its dynamics and perfect resolution, it is now the most faithful format available on streaming services like Qobuz.

From 24 bits / 96 kHz

Original signal

This type of signal corresponds to the sound as it was recorded in the studio.

2. The broadcast technology

It is important to pay attention to how you play your audio file on your system.

Unlike Bluetooth, our Wi-Fi sound technology allows you to stream your audio without any additional compression, so you can fully enjoy the quality of your songs.

Wi-Fi also allows other usage improvements detailed right here:

Wi-Fi or Bluetooth: Comparison

Bluetooth

Although widely used, Bluetooth implies important sound losses when broadcasting your file (frequency and dynamic losses).

Wi-Fi

Broadcasting audio over Wi-Fi involves no audio loss and allows you to fully enjoy your audio file.

3. Audio processing

Once received on your audio system, your file needs to be converted.

Your file is in digital format and needs to be converted to analog format for playback through your speakers.

This conversion process is crucial in order to be able to enjoy a sound faithful to the original.

Internal DAC

This conversion is performed by a DAC (Digital to Analog Converter).

We have integrated into our products DACs known for their reliability, neutrality and precision. Using Octavio’s internal DAC is to ensure a precise and clear sound.

To use the internal DAC of an Octavio product, connect your device to your audio system with an analog RCA cable.

External DAC

If you want to deport this conversion to an external device, this is also possible.

To do this, get an external DAC that suits you best and connect your Octavio device to your DAC with an optical cable.

Some amplifiers are also equipped with an optical input, so it is also possible to use the DAC of your amplifier for this purpose.

4. Your audio system

Finally, all that’s left is to find your perfect audio system combo.

For this, we recommend that you contact our dealers, specialists in the field, who will be able to find an installation that suits you.
