WiFi, DLNA & Multiroom
The D802E now includes a Linkplay A3 module. The latter offers WiFi connectivity that has been specially developed for audio use with native DLNA & Multiroom support.
This Wi-Fi connection with DLNA offers features similar to a Network Drive to the D802E, which can receive the audio stream from a simple application running on a smartphone / tablet.
Broadband connectivity (802.11b / g / n with a bandwidth of 300Mbps) authorizes the transfer of dematerialized audio streams up to 192kHz / 24-bit.
Finally, this feature is not exclusive to a single device, since this use may extend to multiroom installation. That is to say, one can install multiple D802E, each connected to its pair of passive speakersand control each of them or alltogether from a single connected device.
In DLNA, the device does not allow volume control and performs downsampling at 48kHz.
