The Tiki is a dedicated network audio player. DLNA compatibility ensures that you can connect the Tiki into your existing Ethernet network and be confident that it will communicate with your other DLNA compatible components.
Ethernet communication is used both for transmission of the music files and to control signal communication because of its clear advantages over other communication protocols such as USB and S/PDIF.
With distinctive styling, benchmark build quality and stunning sound the Tiki is a great addition to the other traditional components in your music system.
The different file types and codecs that can be handled are either the best quality or the most popular, so while the types of files supported is inevitably limited to some extent there are few types in common use not handled by the system. Popular files types such as FLAC, LPCM, AIFF, ALAC and MP3 are all catered for. Gapless Playback is also supported.
