When a problem becomes an idea
Premium Hi-Fi systems are bought to be enjoyed for years. So a lot of people don't want to part with their devices, even if they are not really up to date in terms of high-resolution wireless audio streaming anymore.
That is why we developed the M1 Air streaming DAC. A universal module that can be easily connected to most HI-FI systems and supports 192kHz / 24-bit hi-res audio files.
The M1 Air is equipped with Chromecast built-in, AirPlay 2, Roon, Spotify Connect and Bluetooth 5.0. This allows you to easily stream music services such as Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Qobuz, airable internet radio or podcasts from a smartphone or other mobile device.
Play music in every room of your house
Wherever you have a good wireless WIFI network available, several M1 Air's can be linked together to form a hi-res multi-room audio system. Its small design footprint allows it to be easily placed anywhere in the house and offers a wide variety of streaming options.
However, you don't have to purchase a complete system right away. You can start by connecting an M1 Air to the existing HI-FI system and later expand with, for example, the P6 Air or P9 (equipped with an M1 Air).
Upgrade the P9 with the M1 Air module
Also the P9, the top model of the P series, can be expanded with the M1 AIR module. For this purpose a special compartment is provided under the keyboard that is already equipped with a separate audio input (AUX2) and a USB power supply connection.
A new firmware version (MCU 3.26) must be installed on the P9 to be compatible with the M1 Air. Download the file below and install it on an empty USB drive. Turn on the P9. Place the USB drive with the firmware update into the P9 USB input. The P9 will power off and power on again (all LEDs on the keyboard will turn back on). The unit has been updated.
