FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Wolf Audio Systems Announces its Alpha 3 SX Pure Digital Edition
High-Resolution Music Server
JACKSONVILLE, FL, August 4, 2020 – Wolf Audio Systems, a company dedicated to providing the ultimate in digital music source components today announced the introduction of the Alpha 3 SX Pure Digital Edition music server, created to deliver the finest-available high-resolution and streaming audio playback. The Alpha 3 SX Pure Digital Edition features a modified-for-audio Windows 10 Pro or the new, proprietary Linux-based WolfOS operating system and offers 4TB storage capacity (expandable to 32TB), 24-bit and DSD playback capability, an upgraded Flux Capacitor 24 MHz master clock and additional improvements.
The Alpha 3 SX Pure Digital Edition has a sleek, one-chassis design that fits easily into any audio or home entertainment system. It can play back a wide variety of stereo and multichannel audio formats including FLAC, WAV, AIFF, ALAC, SACD, DSF, DFF and (PCM) from 16 – 32 bits, 44.1, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192 and 384 kHz audio and DSD Native up to DSD1024.
At the heart of the Alpha 3 SX Pure Digital Edition is the WolfOS Linux-based operating system, based on Ubuntu software. The WolfOS features a custom kernel that offers the lowest I/O latency possible, keeps the audio functions isolated from the rest of the server and works seamlessly with the Alpha 3 SX Pure Digital Edition’s output circuitry. Users can also opt to utilize Wolf’s Windows-based operating system.
The Alpha 3 SX Pure Digital Edition includes 4TB of SSD (solid state drive) storage capacity, twice the amount previously available, for ultra-fast access to all content. An optional 32TB of expansion capability can also be added.
The Wolf Alpha 3 SX Pure Digital Edition is engineered to deliver extraordinary audio performance. It now incorporates Wolf’s Flux Capacitor master clock, formerly an optional upgrade, as standard. By operating at a high 24 MHz clock rate, the Flux Capacitor ensures more accurate reconstruction and transmission of the digital audio signal with less jitter and better accuracy, for a more natural and more involving musical presentation.
The server incorporates a host of additional refinements to ensure ultimate audio performance, which are the result of a collaboration between Wolf Audio Systems, Stillpoints and eXemplar Audio. These refinements address the areas of micro-vibration control, electrical grounding and radio frequency interference (RFI) suppression. For example, the server incorporates Portals, a new patent-pending type of grounding-noise conditioning, to remove MHz- and GHz-frequency power contamination and deliver a new level of clarity and resolution. Stillpoints internal standoffs are used to attenuate internal micro-vibrations, and Audience OHNO high-purity oxygen-free copper internal wiring ensures maximum signal purity.
The Alpha 3 SX Pure Digital Edition offers easy access to its musical content via its web browser or Android and iOS applications. Its wireless connectivity also allows the user to control all functions using a wireless keyboard, mouse or tablet, or via a home automation system remote control.
Like all Wolf Audio servers, the Alpha 3 SX Pure Digital Edition is compatible with a wide range of audio applications and streaming audio formats including Roon, JRiver, Qobuz, Tidal, Deezer and others. The server can connect to a TV or monitor to display album cover art, artist, track and album information and more. It offers a full complement of USB, Ethernet, HDMI and IR inputs and outputs, and if desired, an external Blu-ray drive can be connected for disc playback.
The Wolf Alpha 3 SX Pure Digital Edition is currently available in black or silver finish at a retail price of $10,000 with 4TB of storage, and $16,000 with an optional 32TB of storage. The unit can be supplied with optional Stillpoints Ultra SS isolation feet at an additional $1,000.
