The Luna


As we prepared to launch the Alpha 3, we saw a need for a smaller form-factor machine that had full-blown Alpha DNA and options for expansion. The server needed to be able to share a rack with DACs like the Chord Dave or Ayre Codex but retain the full functionality of our larger machines, including a Blu-Ray Drive, remote control and room for an add-on audio output card.

SKU: A3-2 Categories: ,

Sound, power and simplicity. While the Cub is a great system, its size made implementation of some of our newest techniques difficult. We decided that it was time to move on from the Cub form factor to a larger chassis, taking the advances and experience we’d aquired from the Alpha 3 and adapting them. The Luna is fast, more capable and even better sounding than the Cub, letting you take full advantage of your entire digital media collection, all available from one device with room on the rack for other components. From MP3 to DSD, CD to Blu-Ray, the Alpha 3 is a state of the art ticket to an outstanding performance.

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.

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 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


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.
