Ex-BBC sound engineers Lee Taylor and Mallory Nicholls (LeeMa), the creative/engineering duo behind Leema Acoustics, will be revealing the new Quasar streaming amp/DAC (£2,995 est.) ahead of its official launch later in 2016 . leema_quasar

Quasar forms part of the new Stellar series and yet sports the classy machined-billet aluminium front panel styling of its Constellation series siblings. Based on Leema’s Elements series topology, Quasar’s dual mono output sections provide incredible power and drive from such a svelte design: nearly 200 watts RMS into 8 ohms. Its internal DAC builds onLeema’s Quattro-infinity topology as seen in the flagship Libra DAC and enables faithful conversion from digital data to audio signal, with three co-axial inputs and three optical inputs, plus Leema’s M1 asynchronous USB interface. Bluetooth is also included, supporting high-quality audio streaming directly from compatible mobile devices, plus an advanced streaming board really expands the capabilities of the Quasar.

Quasar will handle most formats at up to 24bit/192kHz resolution, with full DLNA/UPNP compatibility, plus dedicated control apps for both Android and Apple devices. vTuner radio is supported, together with Deezer and other music services are scheduled to be added.

In addition to the Quasar, Leema will also be showing the recently launched flagship Libra DAC, the company’s flagship power amp, the Hydra II, plus the Xone and Xen 2 speakers.
