Finally, a complete solution to fixing USB audio's shortcomings. LANRover cleans, isolates and regenerates USB audio for near-perfect sound from a computer or music server. It can also connect a computer in one part of the home to a DAC in any other.
There are two ways to take advantage of LANRover’s unique capabilities. First, as an isolation regenerator between the computer and DAC. This method will likely be the most common used. Existing computer/server applications employing USB cables connecting to computers are commonplace in high-end audio rooms and all benefit from rebuilding the critical interface with LANRover.
Supplied with LANRover’s matched pair of chassis are two cables: a one foot CAT5 and a one meter USB. The short CAT5 cable connects the regenerator/transmitter and the receiver together as shown in the pictures. Installation is simple. If you have a working DAC/computer setup now, simply insert the LANRover pair and resume your listening without interruption. LANRover’s regenerator/transmitter, which connects to the computer, is also powered by the computer. LANRover’s receiver is powered by an included +5V DC supply—since once regenerated, all connection to the computer are gone.
If you are currently using a longer USB cable, or would like to locate the computer away from the DAC, but in the same room, there are few restrictions. Simply run a CAT5 cable of any length (up to 300 feet) between the LANRover’s two devices. This allows an easy means of isolating noisy computers from sensitive DACs.
If the computer is in another room and you have a wired home network, it is easy enough to plug the regenerator/transmitter near your computer into the home’s network router. LANRover is one of a very few such devices capable of sending high-resolution audio over a home network without issue. LANRover is the only audio-specific USB network device on the market today—and it is capable of PCM up to 352kHz and double rate DSD.
LANRover has been worked on by both PS Engineering and our partner company, who developed its groundbreaking technology, for well over a year. And our CEO, Paul McGowan, has been hoarding his personal LANRover in Music Room One for even longer—unwilling to share with anyone. While our partners are experts in IT, they needed a lot of handholding when it came to audio and its delivery without compromise to a DAC. It was a fruitful partnership.
LANRover will forever change the way your computer/DAC interface works and sounds. Improvements must be heard to be fully understand. Whatever your preconceptions of add-on accessories designed to help isolate and improve USB audio, LANRover must be considered on its own and in a class all its own.
Once installed, LANRover is unlikely to ever leave.
