Anything you can do, I can do better... 

Also part of the NOVAFiDELITY X-series of high fidelity music streamers are the X30 and X40, which offer all the functionality of the X12 and more, and are built using higher spec components.

Unlike the X12 they have a built-in FM radio tuner that can be recorded in CD quality, and they have an HDMI out for connection to an external screen.

Both offer additional inputs and outputs as you can see if you click to enlarge the images below:

The X30 features the highly respected Burr-Brown HD PCM1792A DAC, a high performance TI Class D amplifier with dynamic 100W output, TCXO oscillator and an isolated power source. It can be used as a stand-alone unit or as part of your existing system.

The X40 is a source only unit having no built-in amp, and features the world class ES9018K2M Sabre³² Reference DAC with patented 32-bit Hyperstream and Toirodal transformer power supply. and a moving magnet phono preamplifier.

X40 Photos & Reviews


[The] NOVAFiDELITY X40 could be just the perfect front-end for your system. [It’s] one of the most fully-featured, thoroughly musical and satisfying components out there...
— Hi-Fi World

By any standards, what this fiendishly capable unit can do is remarkable: all that flexibility has been achieved without any compromise in sound quality, as soon becomes clear whether playing solo classical instruments or high-octane rock recordings. If the material you load onto the X40, and the rest of your system, are up to the task, this is a recorder/player fully able to deliver all that a recording has to give, and do so with no more than a twist and a push of the main control.
