Mini Computer as an Audio Server?

Yes, definitely! Despite its small size, with the addition of special I2S DAC, the miniature computer module used in our servers performs the task of serving the perfect hi-fi sound without a glitch. The sound of the built-in 24/192 DAC is comparable to the external DACs several times its price. There are also versions of the server which support both the analog (RCA) and S/PDIF audio output. The standard version comes with RCA analog audio out, but since all our products are made to order, changing the specifications and specified audio output (analog or S/PDIF) isn't a problem.

Our servers are always customised according to the client's wishes, so there are always different configurations and enclosures to choose from, without the LCD, or with the LCD and IR remote control (which can be used in addition to "normal" control via a tablet or a smartphone). The enclosure can be built to order, e.g. with an additional module for internal hard disk and other customisations.

The server/network streamer comes with a high quality 24/192 DAC as standard, and can also be purchased together with one of our Class D amplifiers. Prices start from €350 (plus 25% VAT for EU residents) for the basic server/streamer (e.g. in a square aluminium and wood enclosure). The systems with round enclosures pictured below start from €440 (plus 25% VAT for EU residents), depending on the components chosen.

Audio server + amplifier kit

The kit consists of a mini fanless audio server/streamer with 24/192 DAC already built-in, plus TPA3116D2-based Hi-Fi amp which we offer as a complete high resolution audio solution. HD sound in a small package - just add speakers!

With front LCD and remote control

The server can be chosen with an additional IR remote control and the front-mounted LCD which displays information about the currently playing track and other information (e.g. Internet radio station and track title, resolution, bitrate, etc.).

Other possible additions

You can choose other additional options - this photo shows our kit with an additional enclosure for a 2.5" hard disk on the bottom.

Possible configurations and other enclosures

Here is the more "traditional" variant of the complete Hana-Lab kit: hi-resolution audio server (with 24/192 DAC) and a 2x50W Class D amplifier. Prices starting from €495

The sound of music

Besides the audio servers, network streamers and the Class D amps, we also make small full-range speakers, perfect for the desktop, or for smaller rooms or offices. These are made from real wood: several wood types and designs are available.

Perfect companions

Our hand-built Class D amps are perfect companions for our small audio servers. Different stereo amp versions are available (2x50W, 2x100W). A version with both the server and the amplifier in the same enclosure can also be built to order.

Class D Amplifiers with Superb Sound

Our Class D amplifiers can really be called "giant killers" - it is simply hard to imagine such rich sound coming from such small packages. Also, with efficiency exceeding 90%, these amps require almost no cooling, thus avoiding large and expensive heatsinks. They also run quite happily powered by simple switching-mode power supply (which also reduces the total cost and power consumption). The usual power consumption for the whole kit (our server plus our amplifier, with music files located on an attached USB dongle) averages from 3.5W to 4W, on moderate room listening levels - which also makes our components ideal for locations where the power consumption is an issue (camper vans or off-the-grid locations).

As for the sound quality, the majority of listeners usually compare it to the amplifiers costing at least 10 times more. And that should give you an idea of what these are capable of.

Pick one that suits you

We offer several configurations and enclosure sizes - from small to smaller. All the best things come in small packages.

The tube sound

We also make monoblock Class D amplifiers paired with tube (valve) preamplifiers. Pictured is one such kit: 2x50W monoblock amplifier with a small tube preamp.

Small amps with big sound

Our amplifiers draw out the best from every speaker you might connect them to: from 4 Ohm to 8 Ohm speakers, even those notoriously "difficult to drive".
