Network music enhancement
At the heart of Stream Magic 6’s repertoire, is its ability to find and play music across your home network, enabling music stored on UPnP-equipped computers and drives to be transformed through your hi-fi system. This is the most elegant way of sharing digital music content with Steam Magic 6. Setting up your home network and Stream Magic 6 to work in harmony is really easy as nearly all current computers and network drives are designed to support the UPnP standard.
Stream Magic 6 simplifies the process of navigating the world of Internet radio with a 20,000 tried-and-tested roster of stations from around the planet which are searchable by title, genre and region.
All your favourite stations and preferences can be managed using our Stream Magic Home portal and from here, you can also suggest new stations which we’ll validate and then add for other Stream Magic 6 customers to enjoy.
Streaming services support
Stream Magic 6 ships with a range of the most popular services onboard including Aupeo!, BBC iPlayer Radio, Pandora, Rhapsody, Sirius/XM and MP3Tunes. Additional services will continue to be added and we’ll notify you when this happens so you can make even more of your Stream Magic 6.

Enhance any digital audio device:
A raft of connections means Stream Magic 6 can be used to enhance virtually any gadget with a digital audio output.
• USB connection: Stream Magic 6’s in-built USB connection means you can instantly upgrade audio performance from your PC or Mac. Whether music is stored on your computer or it’s being streamed from services like Spotify, Rhapsody or Napster, the upgrade potential to computer processed audio is enormous and Stream Magic will turn it into high-end hi-fi quality.
For the ultimate in digital audio reproduction, Stream Magic 6 can receive up to 24-bit/192kHz transfer over USB and supports both kernel streaming and ASIO. (Apple computers support up to 24-bit/192kHz USB transfer natively and a free driver makes this possible from Windows PCs).
• Optical TOSLINK and S/P DIF connections: Many of your favourite gadgets like Blu-ray players, TVs and media streamers can deliver audio to your hi-fi system, but because they’re primarily designed to perform other functions, their audio outputs lack quality. By simply connecting them to your Stream Magic 6, you can bypass their inbuilt digital to analogue converters transforming their humdrum performance into something much more spectacular!
Stream Bluetooth audio from your mobile:
By adding our optional plug-and-play BT100 wireless audio receiver to your Stream Magic 6, you can stream music wirelessly from your Android Smartphone, iPhone, iPad, tablet, laptop or any device that supports Bluetooth. Best of all, if your Smartphone, tablet or Apple Mac supports the high-end audio aptX CODEC, you can stream audiophile-quality music from your device direct to your Stream Magic 6.
