Neet Cables iEast Soundstream Wifi Music Receiver by Neet – Wireless Multi-Room Sync Sound Streamer – High-end ESS Sabre HiFi DAC – Good value for money

Excellent good in particular listening to spotify through ieast.

Seem to be perfectly built and durable, connects as a spotify unit pretty easily. Set the spotify little bit price to ‘extreme quality’ for ideal effects. I have not connected to a hifi nevertheless, but connect to a aux input on a great top quality moveable stereo, sounds markedly greater than connecting audio from telephone. Just one factor to notice, i had to cut down router setting from 5g to 2. It does say this is only required for initual connect. Have not elevated it again up all over again nonetheless.

Wonderful item – using it with the optical output into a dac amp. Easy to use with the two dlna and airplay. But you can also use it with any windows sound resource by downloading tuneblade (free. I use it for prime music, but it captures any windows audio stream and sends it through airplay.Here are the specifications for the Neet Cables iEast Soundstream Wifi Music Receiver by Neet – Wireless Multi-Room Sync Sound Streamer – High-end ESS Sabre HiFi DAC:

I acquired this to be ready to stream net media (spotify) to a new leading conclude amplifier that experienced digital inputs, exceptional sound, but does not nevertheless have the streaming functionality i essential beyond world-wide-web radio. Connecting the ieast to world wide web by ethernet and to the amplifier by optical toslink it has finished particularly what i wished and sounds fantastic. Location up spotify was a breeze, and the premium sound high quality much greater than i experienced envisioned. I won’t be able to remark on the wifi and so on or analog output as i have not utilized it in that way.

At dwelling we have experienced a extended argument if spotify coding was inferior to apple music, in the in the meantime this box was bought in purchase to update an old hello fi to the streaming modern-day instances. We even set up a routine with alexa to start out the hello fi without having will need of distant management. Expensive, what a variation, i am informed that shouldn’t be achievable but i cannot listen to the difference concerning cd and spotify, it is obvious that spotify connect is getting the 320kbp and that the dac is leading good quality, apple music demo was not renewed as it couldn’t match the high quality and convenience of this set up. From time to time the ieast battle switching concerning spotify connect hubs forcing me to restart the unit but i think it is a spotify fault for the relaxation i really advocate you to get this device.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Superb value for money, excellent unit all round.
  • Very impressed with iStream Soundstream playing DLNA from my NAS
  • Does NOT support gap-less playback

All very good, i have that streamer for couple great months now and i am joyful sufficient with the efficiency and sound high quality. I applied manly as a streamer, not using the dac within, so cannot comment on the high quality of the dac, but i guess would not be negative anyway. Tidal and spotify get the job done with no hassle, a whole lot of radio possibilities, is just so easy and useful to use by cell app. For the average ‘audiophile’ will do the position beautifully.

Functions alright set up not far too tough, would have provided good critique if it performed spotify free of charge version which is most important cause for my shopping for it.

Connect it to your wifi with the wps system. If you stick to the guidance it does not operate (at the very least it failed to operate for me on two individual models). Favourites on the radio isn’t going to operate effectively. Has crashed my tablet when interacting with spotify. Other than that will work extremely nicely. Appears very good by way of my hifi.

Musically it does it really is job nicely, streaming music from my nas and performed via a class-d amp into wharfdale floorstanders. It isn’t going to come shut to reaching the heights of my linn streamer, but then it only value two% of the cost and i only want it for track record music in the again home. Possessing questioned the makers if it supported gap-considerably less playback prior to purchasing it, and remaining explained to that it did, i subsequently identified this info to be incorrect. I was told that the individual who gave me this information had produced a slip-up, but were being otherwise extremely unapologetic, and didn’t provide a option as nicely as not responding to e-mail until i was persistent. In the conclude i made the decision not to return it, obtaining by now struggled to locate one thing that suited my needs, but i’m now hoping that i by no means call for any customer aid. If hole-significantly less playback is not critical to you, then this is an excellent product.

Some challenges connecting to media player on computer system.

Easy setup and terrific audio top quality .

Purchased this to substitute a logitech squeezebox contact which no for a longer period supports napster. Sad to say it seems that a comprehensive napster membership is necessary for this machine, while it wasn’t for the logitech. I returned it and went with alexa (echo dot) which can also use a bluetooth speaker. I did have to enhance my amazon music subscription but this was more affordable than upgrading my napster.

Awesome truly what a small box like this is able of right after you’ve got it established up effectively and devote in a couple of accessories to maximise its abilities. Basically, i preferred to stream my itunes library locally from my pc and regulate all the things via an app on my (android) phone. I preferred to do this as my faithful aged ipod vintage is about to give up the ghost, and of study course, i want the usefulness of navigating my music immediate from the couch. Streaming products and services and the like, for the second, i’m not so interested in, but i dare say that there is even a perform around to make these work in the potential, even nevertheless is machine is wifi only and not bluetooth. Anyway, when i received it i connected it to my hifi using rca connection, downloaded the app for my cellular phone and my pc observed it easily. I could not, having said that, manage it by the app but could only play music to it through itunes from my pc. Then a handy male on an audio forum recommended downloading a 3rd get together itunes remote app from google play. Sound good quality was not poor albeit a little soft and unpunchy but i study that it could be improved with the optical out and a toslink cable. Hassle is my amp only has just one optical in taken up by the connection to the television so i wondered if these a matter as an optical splitter was available.

Operates jointly with stereoboomm mr200/300 (tested work in exact same app and in multu-space) and likely also august ws300, venz a501, and other wifi speakers (not examined). So you can make a soundsystem through the residence. Sound is fantastic (not listened incredibly carefully still while.Bad 5v adaptors can bring about hissing/track record sounds, so attempt a few. The app is excellent, but not ideal.

I use with an av receiver & android phone , works quite effectively radio/sotify but sign up necessary, can play downloaded music on system,.

This is a fantastic minimal box, i have no hesitation in recommending this minimal box of tips, i am pretty content with this item.

I experienced earlier been using a raidsonic mp 401 to stream music from my nas travel. It suffered simply because it was wifi only and the signal from my hub was weak. Any resolution increased than sixteen/forty four. I purchased the ieast since it available a direct cable connection as well as wifi. I set it up to begin with for wifi (an easy system since of the wps button) and then connected a cable. The performance was exceptional and i could play 24/192 files. Using the ieast play app i could also obtain world wide web radio for the very first time. However, apart from that, i located the play app to be inferior to the bubbleupnp i experienced been using earlier and, given that that is fully compatible with the ieast, i am continuing to use it.

Sound a little hard in the upper fields.

I was using an apple tv set to do my spotify streaming duties, but the automatic (and useless) upsampling was killing the sound quality stone lifeless. So i did a lot of exploration attempting to locate a device that. Is spotify connect compliantis airplay complianthas a spdif outputhas lan as properly as wi-fidoesn’t upsample / resample unnecessarilythere usually are not lots of models out there that have all individuals things to their make up enable me explain to you. Right on the edge of supplying up i stumbled on this unit deep in the wilderness of a google search. ‘i wonder if amazon offer them?’. In any case, my lifetime story aside, this device is a cracker. Sound good quality is excellent from the spdif output, truly very crisp indeed. I have mine running into an audiolab m-dac and it really is exceptionally very clear.

I was on the lookout for a gadget to connect to my hifi so that i could stream music from my nas (netgear readynas ultra4 moreover)and all i could find had been glorified bins costing hundreds of kilos that were being extremely complicated and did not give ample command. Following a quantity of times looking i stumbled across the ieast soundstream. I experimented with to go through up on it, but there was not a large amount of data so i took a gamble and purchased one particular as the price tag was very good and i could constantly return it if it didn’t operate. Very well, i is not going to be returning it, that is for guaranteed. The directions have been straightforward and it was up and working ahead of i realised. It is primarily customized to world wide web radio stations, so obtaining enabled dlna on the nas, i located it beneath my music and 10 seconds afterwards i was actively playing music from the nas straight out of my hifi. I was anxious that the ieast’s area was in a weak wifi spot where a past product unsuccessful to do the job well, but the music streamed with out a break and i discovered the details of the wifi connection, wherever i had 60% sign power. This is downstairs and through three partitions, 1 breeze block and 2 crimson brick. To say i was impressed would be an understatement. This product is everything i was right after and i hope that the producer goes from energy to strength as they actually have worked to make it easy to use, while even now supplying plenty of detailed information and facts about the status exactly where it is required.

    Bought this to replace a logitech squeezebox touch which no longer supports napster. Unfortunately it seems that a full napster subscription is required for this device, whereas it wasn’t for the logitech. I returned it and went with alexa (echo dot) which can also use a bluetooth speaker. I did have to upgrade my amazon music subscription but this was cheaper than upgrading my napster.

    1. All good, i have that streamer for few good months now and i’m happy enough with the performance and sound quality. I used manly as a streamer, not using the dac inside, so can’t comment on the quality of the dac, but i guess wouldn’t be bad anyway. Tidal and spotify work with no hassle, a lot of radio options, is just so easy and handy to use through mobile app. For the average ‘audiophile’ will do the job perfectly.

    1. At home we have had a long argument if spotify coding was inferior to apple music, in the meanwhile this box was bought in order to update an old hi fi to the streaming modern times. We even set up a routine with alexa to start the hi fi without need of remote control. Dear, what a difference, i’m aware that shouldn’t be possible but i cannot hear the difference between cd and spotify, it is obvious that spotify connect is getting the 320kbp and that the dac is top quality, apple music trial was not renewed as it couldn’t match the quality and convenience of this set up. Sometimes the ieast struggle switching between spotify connect hubs forcing me to restart the unit but i believe it is a spotify fault for the rest i highly recommend you to buy this unit.

    1. Amazing really what a little box like this is capable of after you’ve got it set up properly and invest in a couple of accessories to maximise its capabilities. Basically, i wanted to stream my itunes library locally from my pc and control everything through an app on my (android) phone. I wanted to do this as my faithful old ipod classic is about to give up the ghost, and of course, i want the convenience of navigating my music direct from the sofa. Streaming services and the like, for the moment, i’m not so interested in, but i dare say that there is even a work around to make these work in the future, even though is device is wifi only and not bluetooth. Anyway, when i got it i connected it to my hifi using rca connection, downloaded the app for my phone and my pc found it easily. I could not, however, control it by the app but could only play music to it via itunes from my pc. Then a helpful guy on an audio forum suggested downloading a third party itunes remote app from google play.

    Musically it does it’s job well, streaming music from my nas and played through a class-d amp into wharfdale floorstanders. It doesn’t come close to reaching the heights of my linn streamer, but then it only cost 2% of the price and i only want it for background music in the back room. Having asked the manufacturers if it supported gap-less playback prior to buying it, and being told that it did, i subsequently found this information to be incorrect. I was told that the person who gave me this information had made a mistake, but were otherwise very unapologetic, and didn’t offer a solution as well as not responding to emails unless i was persistent. In the end i decided not to return it, having already struggled to find something that suited my needs, but i’m now hoping that i never require any customer support. If gap-less playback is not important to you, then this is an excellent item.

    Appear to be well made and sturdy, connects as a spotify device very easily. Set the spotify bit rate to ‘extreme quality’ for best results. I have not connected to a hifi yet, but connect to a aux input on a good quality portable stereo, sounds markedly better than connecting audio from phone. One thing to note, i had to reduce router setting from 5g to 2. It does say this is only needed for initual connect. Have not raised it back up again yet.

    I had previously been using a raidsonic mp 401 to stream music from my nas drive. It suffered because it was wifi only and the signal from my hub was weak. Any resolution higher than 16/44.

The performance was excellent and i could play 24/192 files. Using the ieast play app i could also access internet radio for the first time. However, apart from that, i found the play app to be inferior to the bubbleupnp i had been using previously and, since that is completely compatible with the ieast, i am continuing to use it.

    I was using an apple tv to do my spotify streaming duties, but the automatic (and needless) upsampling was killing the sound quality stone dead. So i did a lot of research trying to find a unit that. Is spotify connect compliantis airplay complianthas a spdif outputhas lan as well as wi-fidoesn’t upsample / resample unnecessarilythere aren’t many units out there that have all those elements to their make up let me tell you. Right on the edge of giving up i stumbled upon this unit deep in the wilderness of a google search. “i wonder if amazon sell them?”. Anyway, my life story aside, this unit is a cracker. Sound quality is superb from the spdif output, really very crisp indeed. I have mine running into an audiolab m-dac and it’s exceptionally clear.

      1. I was looking for a device to connect to my hifi so that i could stream music from my nas (netgear readynas ultra4 plus)and all i could find were glorified boxes costing hundreds of pounds that were overly complicated and didn’t provide enough control. After a number of days searching i stumbled across the ieast soundstream. I tried to read up on it, but there wasn’t a lot of information so i took a gamble and ordered one as the price was good and i could always return it if it didn’t work. Well, i won’t be returning it, that’s for sure. The instructions were simple and it was up and running before i realised. It is primarily tailored to internet radio stations, so having enabled dlna on the nas, i found it under my music and 10 seconds later i was playing music from the nas straight out of my hifi. I was concerned that the ieast’s location was in a weak wifi spot where a previous device failed to work well, but the music streamed without a break and i found the details of the wifi connection, where i had 60% signal strength. This is downstairs and through 3 walls, 1 breeze block and 2 red brick. To say i was impressed would be an understatement. This device is everything i was after and i hope that the manufacturer goes from strength to strength as they really have worked to make it easy to use, whilst still providing enough detailed information about the status where it is needed.

    Nice product – using it with the optical output into a dac amp. Easy to use with both dlna and airplay. But you can also use it with any windows sound source by downloading tuneblade (free. I use it for prime music, but it captures any windows audio stream and sends it via airplay.

    Works together with stereoboomm mr200/300 (tested; work in same app and in multu-room) and probably also august ws300, venz a501, and other wifi speakers (not tested). So you can build a soundsystem throughout the house. Sound is good (not listened very closely yet though.Bad 5v adaptors can cause hissing/background noise, so try a few. The app is good, but not perfect.

    1. Connect it to your wifi with the wps method. If you follow the instructions it does not work (at least it didn’t work for me on two separate units). Favourites on the radio doesn’t work properly. Has crashed my tablet when interacting with spotify. Other than that works very nicely. Sounds good through my hifi.

  23. I bought this to be able to stream internet media (spotify) to a new top end amplifier that had digital inputs, excellent sound, but does not yet have the streaming capability i needed beyond internet radio. Connecting the ieast to internet by ethernet and to the amplifier by optical toslink it has done exactly what i wanted and sounds superb. Setting up spotify was a breeze, and the premium sound quality much better than i had expected. I can’t comment on the wifi etc or analog output as i haven’t used it in that way.
