The Luna R – Pure Digital Edition

$5,000.00$8,750.00

The next generation of our Luna server, the Luna R takes the breakthroughs (and architecture) of our Alpha 3 SX and brings it down to small form-factor size.  Sharing a rack with DACs like the Chord Dave and T+A’s HA200 or DAC8 DSD but retaining the full functionality of our larger machines, the Luna R Pure Digital Edition now comes standard with Stillpoints and eXemplar Audio technology, and our Flux Capacitor USB Clock Card. For the audiophile looking for a small form-factor server without compromising on performance or storage, the Luna R PDE is the choice.

The Luna’s second birthday is coming up, and we have decided to give it an upgrade. Sound, power and simplicity. Taking the advances and experience we’d acquired from the Alpha 3 SX, we’ve implemented them on a smaller scale for smaller systems. The Luna R is fast, it’s capable and it is our best sounding small form factor system yet. Stillpoints, eXemplar and Wolf technologies all in a single package make for a class-leading system you wont find anywhere else.

High Fidelity Audio Servers

Pick the system configuration that is right for you

HFAS – The Luna starts here. Designed for the two-channel enthusiast importing their CD collection and getting started with Hi-Res Audio, this server sits right at the  . The Luna power will become readily apparent to those upgrading from a standard streamer or headless device. Hold on tight. Be prepared to be blown away by the system speed, track switching and almost instantaneous responsiveness.

 

HFAS+ – If you are going to be playing High Bit-Rate DSD or MultiChannel audio and installing other 3rd party apps to use with Media Center, Roon or Audirvana, the Luna HFAS+ is a great place to start. Higher RAM and a bigger system drive improve the speed of the Wolf and can cache bigger files for playback. This is also the recommended configuration for users wanting to dabble with 4k video

 

HFAS+ Titan – This HFAS+ Titan server configuration is quite literally a pint-sized powerhouse. 12 Hyper-threaded CPU cores give you the power and bandwidth for high sample rate multi-channel audio for DSD512 and beyond. In five years, it will still be fast, and you’ll still be very happy with your purchase.  32GB RAM and 500GB of 3.5 Gigabytes per second system drive. Play DSD to multiple DACs at once while sending a movie to the living room and browsing the web with 100 open tabs. Or just sit back and listen to some FLAC files, knowing that you could do any of this when you need to.

Software

Media Center, Roon and Audirvana - the holy trinity of Audio Applications fro Wolf Audio Systems servers. Between these three apps, you are able to do whatever it is you'd like to do.
It sounds better than Roon and can handle 20TB libraries.

JRiver Media Center

Media Center is the application we love. In its 24th version, Media Center is the gold standard application that will allow you to do almost everything you could imagine. Our optimizations and customizations let you skip over a year of trial and error and listen to your music right out of the box.

Roon

Roon is a newer app that some people prefer over Media Center. Featuring a great interface and Tidal and MQA integration, this is the app that is convincing people that digital audio has arrived.  A rich metadata repository gives listeners much more than album art.

Roon Artists View

Audirvana+

A brand new application that has us very excited. It looks great, sounds amazing, and has Tidal, MQA and Qobuz integrated right in. It also has a tablet app, just like Media Center and Roon, so running the system headless is a possibility. We are going to be taking a very hard look at customizing the application for our own purposes and to add some features specifically for Wolf customers.
