Unleash the audiophile inside you with NERO STREAM-XD, a unique integrated amplifier with digital wired and wireless options that bridge the gap between high fidelity sound and wireless streaming in a compact, stand-alone and easy to use network. With a built-in 16 to 24 bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC) and inputs to cover all entertainment sources, NERO-STREAM-XD gives you unlimited access to all your digital audio sources, such as Spotify, iHeartRadio, TuneIn with smart speakers, and jump drives, and allows you to play those sources through new or existing audio components and speakers.

A stand-alone integrated amplifier, NERO-STREAM-XD includes line-level inputs (2 RCA) that connect to old-school audio sources but also includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to stream audio through your phone or tablet. Our NERO-STREAM-XD even has an upgraded version of Bluetooth (APXT) that plays at a higher bit rate than similar devices, so you'll hear tones, drum beats, and musical nuances you never heard before on other wireless streaming devices. Our NERO also includes both a digital USB connection and a digital fiber-optic interface for devices like Chromecast audio and here's the kicker. The internal DAC of the Chromecast sends its native digital signal to be processed by the much higher quality DAC on the NERO. The result is true high-fidelity sound in a wireless world.

By-passing Poor Quality DACs
Digital-to-Analog Converters or DACs transform digital audio signals into analog signals so we can hear the sound. Most devices, even smartphones, have some form of DAC to convert digital data into audible analog signals. Recording engineers convert analog signals to digital (ones and zeros) but to listen to it, the signals must be converted back to analog so it can be amplified and sent to your speakers. The problem is there's not much room for a decent converter so the quality is sub-par. NERO STREAM-XD by-passes the DAC in devices like Google Chromecast Audio and smartphones, so you'll hear quality that will impress old-school audiophiles or people who can hear the sound of fish swimming 10 leagues under the sea.

Add NERO Link for Whole House Audio
Pair the NERO STREAM-XD with NERO-Link Wireless Receiver to take streaming capability to other areas of your home. Sold separately, the NERO LINK connects to multi-channel amps or additional NERO STREAM-XDs and can be controlled through the free OSD Audio Player App to stream music to other audio zones directly through your phone or tablet. Use Plex Media Server to access high resolution FLAC and DSD.

Pairs with New or Existing Speakers
One of the best features of our NERO STREAM-XD streaming amplifier is that it connects with new or existing speakers. Still holding on to those towers you spent good money on in the early nineties? Bring them back to life and the 21st century with a streaming amp worthy of the craftmanship in which those towers were built. Want to go all new? Pair NERO STREAM-XD with your Bluetooth speakers or what our geeky audio crew calls the perfect match with our Nero Studio5 Monitor Speakers that offer true monitor-grade performance at a budget-pleasing price

Why Go Wireless?
The beauty of a wireless amplifier is that it uses Wi-Fi to transmit sound so it can be placed anywhere in your home. Having a wireless amp with a high-quality DAC means you can experience the same kind of gut-wrenching audiophile quality that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up without having to wire the amp to your audio source. Unlike other stand-alone streaming amps, our NERO-XD covers all digital and audio bases with Bluetooth®, headphone jack, Wi-Fi, line-in RCA and USB for devices such as Google Chromecast or Amazon Alexa devices so you can stream music with true high-end fidelity.

8 Questions asked on 200W Hi-Fi DAC Class D Amplifier, Bluetooth®, Wi-Fi, Optical, RCA, 3.5MM, & Remote - NERO-STREAM-XD

Aaron Bush • 05/02/2020, 5:06:54 AM Q Hi, I currently have a pair of OSD Bluetooth patio speakers at my pool. I’d like to add more sound. Will this Nero system work with them and if I add a subwoofer and two additional satellite speakers?
Customer Service • 05/03/2020, 1:32:43 AM
A Hi Aaron: Check out our BOM- 4.1 which is a 8.0" Subwoofer/Satellite system featuring a Bluetooth 4.0 Receiver and 4.1 multi-channel amplifiers with 100 Watts low pass sub amp for the internal 8.0" sub woofer. Plus two 60 watt stereo amplifiers and two wiring harnesses with four conductors to connect a pair of satellite speakers. It is recommended to add Patio or Rock speakers featuring a 5.25 inch driver for the best match to the 8.0" sub woofer. There are a couple of apps available for you to sync up with more than one Bluetooth Receiver at a time. If you would like to discuss additional options please contact me and provide me with a blueprint, Line drawing and Images pertaining to your layout. tim@osdaudio.com. Good luck TimL/5-2-2020
GUS • 06/01/2020, 8:43:28 AM Q I HAVE A PAIR OF BOSE 151 OUTDOOR SPEAKERS ARE THEY COMPATIBLE? CAN I ADD ANOTHER PAIR ? IS THE UNIT COMPATIBLE WITH ALL MUSIC APPS I.E SPOTIFY , PANDORA ETC.?
Customer Service • 06/03/2020, 12:27:31 PM
A Hi Gus: No problem driving the one pair of BOSE. As long as your second pair of speakers is 8-ohms there should be no problem. We are compatible with Spotify, Napster, Tidal , Tune-In and iHeart Internet Radio stations. I understand if you have Apple Play (1) you can access Pandora and others. But are OSD Player app supports the five I listed above. You can use Bluetooth to connect to Pandora as well as others. TimL/6-3-2020
Heath • 06/25/2020, 12:47:12 PM Q Any update on addition of AirPlay (2) support to the Nero Stream-XD? I’m looking at options for a new screened porch and this plus a pair of AP650s would be perfect with the option to add another pair (4 Ohm load) in the future.
Customer Service • 06/27/2020, 11:46:17 PM
A Hi Heath: Nothing ion Airplay 2, word is we are working on step up Wi-Fi which will add AMAZON ALEXA, Google Home Play and Air Play 2. No word when that might be. That would be a game changer. TimL/6-27-2020
Harry Bounds • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I get an error message when i try to download manuals for Nero-stream @ link, I have a AMP200 with speaker selector would the stream connect to the AMP200 and control all speakers or does the NERO-STREAM end up being the amp for bluetooth sound? It talks about multible units also how does that work @ why? Where can I get wiring diagrams?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Harry: The link for the OSD NERO Stream has been repaired and should work now. Regarding the question on the AMP200 and how it would interface with the NERO Streamer, I am sending you information on the NERO including the wiring diagram for connecting the NERO Streamer to the AMP200. The AMP200 features both Speaker (High) Level and Signal (Low) Level inputs. The NERO only has Speaker Level outputs. But it has Bluetooth, WiFi, Digital Optic, Line Level and USB inputs. When connected to the AMP200 through the speaker level connection the NERO Stream acts like a preamplifier where you control your Sources and Volume Levels. So the signal is converted at the AMP200 Input and channeled into the Audio Section then re-amplified. So the NERO provides the front end, and the AMP200 gives your more power. The diagram also shows a connection to a speaker selector and examples of different options for connecting speakers and potential volume controls. Please let me know if I can add anything else.

Bill • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q The link to the manual doesn't work. Also, is this a wifi receiver, or does it broadcast a wifi signal to remote speakers?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Bill: We fixed the link to the NERO Link Owner's Manual. The NERO Streamer is an Integrated Power Amplifier with a Built-in Bluetooth Receiver, Built-in WiFi (controlled by OSD Player App, w/free download), Line-in Stereo Right and Left RCA input, USB (Jump Drive) input, and Digital Optic input. It also features dedicated low pass Subwoofer output (single RCA), and Headphone 3.5mm output Jack. Plus, there is a sleek wireless IR remote control included. It also features an audiophile quality 16-24 bit 192 Hz DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) and 50 watts (8-ohms), 75 watts (4-ohm) rated power. The NERO Streamer and sync up with additional Nero Streamers throughout the house or connect with a single or multiple NERO Links connected with one of our unique multi-channel amps (4, 6 and 8 zone versions).
