With its larger display, improved controls, extra sockets and wider streaming services support, the NOVAFiDELITY X12 is an easy way to enjoy all your music from one hub.

Reclaim your shelves!

Using a built-in 1TB hard drive the NOVAFiDELITY (the new name for Cocktail Audio) X12 can rip your CDs in a choice or formats. Mix sound quality with storage space by choosing between FLAC, ALAC, MP3, OGG or WAV encoding options. MP3 will give you the most storage capacity but is the lowest quality, while for the highest quality recordings but reduced capacity choose between FLAC, ALAC or WAV files. Thanks to CD metadata transfer, the stored albums will display the cover art on the 4.3" display.

Store old recordings plus LAN connection
An RCA phono line input enables copying of audio sources and their storage on the hard drive. The X12 also comes with a LAN connection for connecting to your home network hub. Or you can get a USB Wi-Fi dongle as a cost option. Once connected to your home network you can take advantage of a wide range of music streaming services, such as Spotify Qobuz, Receiva, Simfy and Shareplay. Shareplay is NOVAFiDELITY's version of AirPlay and lets you stream content stored on your Apple iOS (iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad) device wirelessly!

Internet radio & laptop streaming
Thanks to built-in internet radio you can access thousands of radio stations from around the world. Where the X12 really excels is in its ability to record internet radio - an option not available on most music streamers. You can also access stored music on your laptop, home PC or other device connected to your home network. With UPnP/DLNA compatibility, linking up the X12 to the rest of your network is a straight forward job.

24bit 192kHz for ultimate quality
Equipped with a powerful processor, the NOVAFiDELITY X12 has the power to support a massive range of formats. These formats include WAV, FLAC, ALAC, PCM, MP3, WMA, M4A, AAC, AIFF, AIF, OGG and playlist (PLS, M3U), including high resolution (24bit/192khz) HD FLAC and HD WAV files. If it's the very highest sound quality possible you require, the X12 supports it.

Built-in amp
Making the X12 a complete system is its built-in amplifier. The powerful, digital amplifier has 30W per channel; enough to drive most speakers to high levels in all but the largest of rooms. New to the X12 model is fanless cooling, making it much quieter in use, and gold-plated 4mm speaker connections. Should you prefer to use your own hi-fi, then simply plug the X12 in via the digital (coaxial and optical) or analogue outputs.

4.3" colour screen
Controlling the X12 is easy. You can either use a conventional remote control or the new facia mounted controls. Alternatively, both Android and Apple applications are available, allowing you to control the X12 by smartphone or tablet.

Already a popular device in X10 form, the NOVAFiDELITY X12 simply makes what was already good, great - and then some!

Don't forget to add speakers, as they're not included with this system.

We'll happily come to you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good but Expensive The guys at Richer Southampton were happy to order one in on the strength of a phone call - thanks,guys! This is the most expensive piece of audio equipment I've bought in a long time but I haven't been disappointed. Don't use headphones with 4 band jacks as this will cause distortion unless you pull the jack out a little. I've now ripped 200 CDs and all have been recognised by the online database and I only had to scan a handful of CD sleeves for their artwork. Sound quality is outstanding. A bit pricey for what is essentially a 1TB hard drive (£80) attached to audio chips and a 60-watt amp - I'm not sure where the other £500 went. But as Mr Rolls, of Rolls-Royce, said, "The value remains once the price is long forgotten" or words to that effect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dreadful After a lot of research bought this, seemed to tick all boxes. When I got home and started to set up, realised wasn't that good. The interface app is awful, difficult to use and poor quality. The connection with the wifi and Ethernet was very flakey, everytime I turned on I had to re-enter password. Whilst CD was ok, the draw was like an old desktop computer draw. The dial on the front doesn't operate the volume! I had high hopes for the display, however didn't really work that well. After 2 months the hard disk failed and wouldn't boot, so had to return. The individual parts, on paper, seem to work, as packaged it doesn't. When I did play, the sound quality was good across variety of genre and volumes. I was just never sure it would work, and lost confidence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Does what it says on the tin" This bit of kit does everything it says on the tin and rips cds really quickly. Reproduction is excellent and navigating the system is a piece of cake highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This has to be the best birthday present I have given my boyfriend. Excellent quality, looks good and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have been looking at the X12 for a while. Finally I bought it at the best price I could find, at richer sounds with an extra £10 off for being in the VIP Club. The set up was easy and ripping CD's was quick and easy. I also like the Internet radio. There is a lot to learn but the basics are easy. I am using my floor standing System Audio 1130 speakers with the built in amp, the sound is amazing all from such a small size. I am gradually ripping my large number of CD's which will be stored elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from product is excellent, instructions and ease of use are deploreable product is fantastic but ease of use and instructions are awful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully functioned mini hub Packs a lot of features into a small footprint, streams from iOS devices, plays and rips CDs & plays a networked PC's music library. Easy to set up and discrete. It would be worth investing in a good set of speakers to get the best sound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cutting edge technology Cutting edge technology in a great design. A little difficult to set up at first. Overall a very neat package to store your music
