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.

Q&A

1. Does this work with Apple Airplay?

Yes it does, but you need to set up the NERO Link using the OSD Player App first which you can find in the app store. Once the NERO Link syncs with your Wi-Fi network, you would reconnect your device to your home Wi-Fi network. Then you would open Apple Airplay, from there you would select the source you want to cast and the NERO Link should appear on that list. Please feel free to contact customer Service at OSD Audio to walk you through it. With this feature it increases the number of Sources available to the NERO Streaming Devices.

Dan • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Does the unit work with Apple airplay?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Dan: It currently does not work with Apple Airplay. But we have just introduced this Integrated Amp with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth among other features. Both the Nero Stream Integrated Power Amplifier and the NERO Link Wi-Fi Streamer share the same free Wi-Fi App. Which featured Spotify, In-Tune Radi, I Heart Radio and Napster. And we have already updated the app to include Alexa voice control. So stay tuned. TL/5494
Frank • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Two questions: 1) what is the max distance between mobile device and Nero-Stream to connect wireless 2) Is there a limitation to the stream app on services? Can you stream YouTube, Pandora, etc?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Frank: The distance for the NERO XD Streamer or the NERO Link depends on how strong your wireless Network is in and around your house. In the OSD Audio App, our current streaming options are Spotify, My Music, iHeartRadio, TuneIn Radio, Tidal, and Napster. We are adding the ability to add Alexa as well. If and when that happens you would have additional services available from Alexa like Pandora etc. Our app released in March 2019. It will continue expanding with free updates. TL/5520
Chris • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Will the Nero Stream adequately drive 2 pairs of your AP850 outdoor speakers?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Chris:Attempting to power two pair of the AP850 with a NERO Stream XD in the great outdoors is pushing the envelope. The only problem is a lack of output power, and the NERO will have increased current demand with the two pair of the AP850 wired in parallel, creating a 4-ohm load. This scenario would generate double the heat as well. A better match for the NERO Stream would be either a pair of AP650 or the AP525, but you are not going to match the potential output of the AP850 with a stronger Amplifier. A better match for the AP850 would be our AMP200, AMP300 or even our new XMP300 (class D Digital power amplifier with matching specs to the AMP300). You could easily add our NERO Link Preamplifier to any one of these three amps and match the streaming capability. There will also be a new Streaming Preamplifier which includes Bluetooth, USB Content, and Mini SD Card Content input coming in the next 30 days as well (the SRT1 Streamer). All three Streaming Links are controlled by our free OSD Player App.TL/5671
Ritesh • 11/24/2020, 4:58:14 PM Hello, Is the Nero-Stream-XD enough to drive 2 Bose 251 environmental outdoor speakers? Thanks in advance.
Customer Service • 12/04/2020, 3:51:46 PM
Hi Ritesh: A good match, the BOSE251 feature 5.25" driver with .5" Tweeter and are 6-ohm. The NERO Stream XD handles a 4-ohm load so you will get higher output from the NERO Stream XD with a pair of these BOSE (2 speakers). It would not be recommended to drive two pairs. Good luck TL 12/4/20
Scott • 11/30/2020, 10:49:44 AM Can you stream Pandora over wi-fi, from the Pandora app on your phone, using the NERO-STREAM-XD just as a audio output and control volume from the Pandora app? I read about the limitations of what your app can stream but was more interested in using the unit as just a audio output source for other apps on a smart phone. I have a customer that wants to use his Pandora app on his phone as a source.
Customer Service • 12/04/2020, 2:10:02 AM
Hi Scott: You can access other apps like Pandora (not supported by our app for wi-Fi) on Bluetooth or if your customer has an iPhone they can connect through AirPlay and access all the apps Apple supports.
