Stream, play, record, rip and tune in - the Nova Fidelity X30 2TB is the all-encompassing hi-fi for the modern age.

Reclaim your shelves!

Using a built-in 2TB hard drive the X30 can rip your CDs in a choice or formats. Mix sound quality with storage space by choosing between MP3, OGG or WAV encoding options. MP3 will give you the most storage capacity but is the lowest quality. Select MP3 128K and you'll be able to record an incredible 30,000 CDs! Yet, even when using the highest quality WAV option you can still store 2600 CDs.

Record from old media or stream via LAN
Thanks to an RCA phono line input you can copy almost any audio source and store them on the hard drive. The X30 comes with a LAN connection for connecting to your home network hub. As an option, you can get USB Wi-Fi dongle. Once connected you've access to thousands of internet radio stations and streaming services such as Simfy. For more conventional radio, an RDS FM tuner radio is also included.

Stream from other sources
You can also access stored music on your laptop, home PC or other device connected to your home network. Where the X30 really excels is in its ability to record internet radio - an option not available on most music streamers.

24 bit/192kHz playback for ultimate sound quality
Equipped with a powerful 700MHz CPU processor, the NovaFidelity X30 has the power to support a massive range of formats. These include WAV, FLAC, ALAC, PCM, MP3, WMA, M4A, AAC, AIFF, AIF, OGG VORBIS and playlist (PLS, M3U), including high resolution (24bit/192kHz) FLAC and WAV files. The 24 bit/192kHz ADC chip also allows for high resolution recording for highly detailed sound quality.

Amplifier built in
Making the X30 a complete system is the built-in amplifier. The digital amplifier offers 50W per channel; enough to drive most speakers to high levels in all but the largest of rooms.

5" colour screen
Controlling the X30 is easy. You can either use a conventional remote control or the facia-mounted controls. Alternatively, both Android and Apple applications are available, allowing you to control the X30 by smartphone or tablet.

HDMI output
An unusual but handy feature with the X30 is the HDMI connection. This lets you connect up to an HDMI-equipped TV or monitor and view album art and graphical information on a large screen.

Rugged construction
With a rigid metal chassis the X30 is built to a high standard. The 8mm thick aluminium front panel doesn't just look good but helps shield against electrical interference, too. The high rigidity casing also resists against mechanical vibration.

If you love music then you'll love the Nova Fidelity X30 2TB. For the highest quality and most flexible solutions, nothing comes close at its price.

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

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Novafidelity X30 2TB - Great features if only they worked. First machines was seconds, no calls/remote/ anything! Second machine appears to have been damaged/dropped in transit. Both speaker channels drop out regularly. Getting internet registered for streaming & network proved impossible after a certain point. Unit freezes & go's no further. Sound is decent through Monitor Audio Bronze 2's, but Equilizer just gibes modes of sound - IE Pop, Opera Etc. No fine tuning, no balance controls, or speaker panning. Would love for this to have worked but no to be. Now going to try a Onkyo Rn855 linked to hard drive..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A brilliant all-rounder Having spent several years grappling with a temperamental Squeezebox Touch, I wanted to find a solution that would enable me to play my 5,000-odd albums through my hifi, while keeping the involvement of my laptop to an absolute minimum. There are still surprisingly few contenders, especially if you want a machine that will rip (and play) CDs and you want a decent amount of storage, plus an amplifier with some clout. It took over a day to load up my collection of FLACs and mp3s, but once I got to grips with the X30's interface it soon became a pleasure to use. The sound is a vast improvement over my ancient Kenwood K3030, and there is no detectable difference between the quality of CDs and ripped files. There are a few quirks, particularly with regard to the internet radio section - why does BBC Radio 3 AAC fail to connect as soon as it's added to Favourites, for instance - but overall, so far the X30 is proving to be a very sound investment indeed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all in one Mainly bought the Cocktail Audio X30 to rip all of my CD collection - its does this really well allowing you to store at different formats and bit rates - I'm using FLAC. One thing to be aware of it is that it will rip CDs in WAV and then convert to your chosen format eg FLAC - but if you power off unit whilst conversion process running it just picks up from where it left when powering back up - really useful and clever. Network either wired or wireless with optional dongle is excellent. The timer record function only works with internet radio but as most major stations have on line presence its not an issue. Great for making recordings from other devices either via coax or optical or analogue connection - again you can choose format and bit rate. I am using mine connected to Marantz amp and sound is excellent and with my Marantz streamer / DAB connected got everything covered. Many other features too long to list, recommend this product - and from Richersounds great price

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has all the features that I need Bought this to hold all my CDs and although not done so yet I am sure there will be more than enough room to do so. It's a bit larger than I thought, but features and sound are good. To replace old Arcam Alpha 8 Amp / Alpha 7 CD player it's fine for my use. And paired with Dali Zensor 1 speakers has plenty of clarity. I might experiment with larger speakers though. Overall a lot of performance for less that I paid years ago for just the two Arcam units and good enough for me. I've not yet tried the web / tablet interface which I suspect will be great - I agree with others who have said the remote is overly complicated (and per my feedback, the system desperately needs to have a touch screen!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I had read a few mixed reviews on this where the sound was criticised, the user interface was criticised,even the remote control. All I can say is that I could not be more pleased that I made this purchase. The initial setup was done in a matter of minutes and as soon as it was plugged in it offered me the latest software upgrade automatically which took a matter of minutes. The Internet Radio is excellent as is the FM Radio. I have copied almost half of my CD collection in WAV format. Each disc is copied in 3-4 times the speed it would normally take. As for the sound.... it is excellent. It is clear and crisp and I seriously cannot fault it. I thought that my Cambridge Azur music server was good but this is much better. I have run this through my existing Cambridge amp and the bass and treble is so much better than before. The remote is very good and makes copying the cd's very easy and that includes getting the covers for the cd's off the net.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A clever and intuitive box So far having had a weekend to play with this machine, I am delighted with it. I am surprised that a machine of this quality (for it feels and looks very classy) doesn't have integrated wi-fi and the extra £30 for a dongle seems like another way of making some money. Also I had trouble setting this up - using the 2 USB ports at the back, failed to connect but at the front USB port (which makes it less attractive!) it does. The back USB ports work fine when I plug in my Intenso box so it must have something to do with interference with the signal. It is a minor irritation although I spent an hour trying make it work. Now that it does, it effortlessly streams radio and finds artwork for the cds I am ripping in FLAC. The Spotify enabled programme is also welcome although again depends on a flawless signal from my Mac to the antennae. It dropped it a few times whilst listening.
