'Nova' is taken from the name of the cutting-edge Korean manufacturer of these products, Novatron, and 'Fidelity' signifies the brand's commitment to sound quality. NOVAFiDELITY's X-Series of network streamers/music servers/CD rippers are true all-rounders, and offer superb value for money.
Based in the UK, the NOVAFiDELITY brand continues to grow in 2018 with the release of the X14, X35, X45, X45(Pro), X50(D) and N15(D).
A note on the NovaFidelity and Cocktail Audio brands: Korean manufacturer Novatron's X-series is branded as NovaFidelity in the UK and as Cocktail Audio in the rest of the world.
Cocktail Audio UK is a separate company and has developed a separate product line over the past several years.
