      Rainbow DSP 1.8 with Wi-Fi Audio Streaming - Revolutionizing how DSPs will be made here on.

      Rainbow has been working on a revolutionary DSP silently for a few years now. The initial launch was supposed to be early 2014, but they wanted to perfect the iOS app and fix a few minor bugs, so they delayed the launch by almost a year and now finally, the DSP has been launched.

      What makes this DSP different to others in the market?

      For starters, it's the....

      Yes, you heard it right. Uncompressed audio streaming via WiFi iOS and Android devices, or via USB port of Windows devices.

      For those of you who are interested in the technical specs.

      For some pics of the UI for the iOS devices.

      The I-Phone can be used only as Remote Control (RC) device that is to switch between Source & Presets apart from being able to Wi-Fi Stream songs.

      The I-Pad however will do the same functions as the I-Phone for a normal user.

      However, for the experienced users, there is also a Pro Version for the I-Pad where you can get almost all the tuning options as the PC Software itself.

      Now for some pics of the UI from the PC software, which in looks is quite similar to the iOS UI.

      I don't think Rainbow has declared it's MSRP in EU/USA yet as the official launch for the apps were done just a couple of days ago. Expect the prices to come out shortly, though I wouldn't be surprised if they priced it a bit more than the Bit One and H800.

      That is around the figure we've been communicated so far. But final pricing will be known very soon.
