Densen have unveiled an upgrade to their B-250 Pre-amplifier in the form of the B-250CAST, a pre-amplifier which supports Google Cast streaming.

Following on from the successful release of the CAST AMP Streamer earlier this year, the B-250CAST joins Densen’s new range of components that support Google’s streaming software. 

Much like the CAST AMP, the B-250CAST has a dedicated Densen CAST power supply.

As well as now supporting Google Cast, the B-250 has seen upgrades based on the B-275 Super Leggera Pre-amp. The amplification has been developed based on advanced Class A designs, with a dual mono output stage that has a storage capacity of 100.000 uF. A built-in DAC converts the signal from digital to analogue.

The volume control has also been upgraded. Using Vishay metal film resistors, volume control is now more precise (0.5dB).

Of the new B-250CAST Pre-amplifier, Densen have said; “The B-250CAST offers a strong musical performance in line with the traditions of Densen.

“Using the B-250CAST will allow the user to delve into the music, and forget about the technology in the quest for audiophile nirvana.”

The B-250CAST will support NAS drives as storage, using BubbleUPnP and similar programs. The B-250CAST comes with a socket for the DP-07 MM RIAA stage and can also be upgraded externally with Densen’s power supply modules.

Densen’s B-250CAST Pre-amplifier will be available in the UK for £3,990.
