Either connecting via USB for 32bit/384KHz and DSD256 high resolution audio, via optical SPDIF to your AV amplifier or Hi-Fi, the Wave will provide you with the best sound quality for your money.

 

The Wave plays Internet Radio and Online Services such as Spotify, Qobuz or Deezer. All controlled via smartphone/tablet so no computer needed. Connected to your Hi-Fi, they’ve never sounded so good.

 

The Wave can connect automatically  to an Innuos Server, to a NAS or to external USB drives easily through its web interface. You can even use Wave as a server for other Wave players around the house.

 

The Wave is based on the Logitech Media Server platform and Linux. Innuos has done all the configuration, built a simple interface and provides an update mechanism so that your Wave works out of the box and just keeps working.

The SWISS ARMY TOOL of NETWORK MUSIC STREAMERS

The Innuos Wave. Such a small player for so many different applications. Have an Innuos Server and need music in a second room? Want to listen to Internet Radio or Spotify/Qobuz without needing a computer on and controlled by your smartphone, tablet or computer? Have a NAS and want a high-resolution music player to connect to your USB DAC? Have an older AV Amplifier or tired of all the limitations they have? Have a headphone amplifier and would like a small yet high-quality player with (optional) battery power?

The simple solution is the Wave, a new small and inexpensive music player leveraging the power of the new generation of hardware and open source software. Nothing small about its sound quality though - bit-perfect digital output will sound fantastic, particularly when coupled with our battery-power supply. Fitting in the palm of your hand, the Wave can be easily tucked away behind your TV or Hi-Fi. It may be invisible to your guests but they will certainly notice the sound quality coming from your system.

Features

High-Resolution Audio

With features such as support for 32bit/384KHz and DSD256 audio, gapless playback, bit-perfect output via asynchronous USB and optional battery power supply, the Wave will amaze you with its sound quality.

All the music in the world

Discover new music with the best sound quality. The Wave connects to Internet radios stations from around the world and online services such as Spotify, Qobuz and Deezer. With the Wave’s audio quality, they’ve never sounded so good.

Multiple Digital OUTPUTS

With 2 different digital outputs - USB and Optical SPDIF - you can connect the Wave to a multitude of devices for playing your music. Fom using a small USB DAC to turn a speaker dock into a network speaker to network enable a AV Amplifier or connecting a high-end USB DAC to your Hi-Fi, the Wave is remarkably flexible.

Leverage your digital music

The Wave can automatically connect to an Innuos server so you can instantly get all your music in a second room. Don't have a server? No problem, the Wave includes it's own music server software so you connect easily to a NAS or USB drive using our easy to use web interface.

Multi-room support

The Wave uses the same Logitech Media Server system as our music and media servers so they all connect into a single multi-room system. Sync your Wave players with our servers and either play the same music on all rooms or different tracks on each room (or any combination you want).
 

EASY Configuration

The Wave is provided with our very own web user interface for configuration. You can access the web interface from any web browser, including your smartphone and tablet as it's designed with touch in mind. A few clicks and your Wave is ready to play your music.

Silent operation

With the Wave there isn't even an hint of mechanical movement - all is absolutely quiet. No fans, no hard drives, no vibration, nothing. Just you and your music in perfect harmony.

LOW POwer

Amazingly, the Wave consumes only 3W of power when idle and 5W in peak usage. This means we can provide an affordable battery power solution, allowing you to further upgrade the sound quality of the Wave. You can also have it on all the time so it's ready to play as soon as you arrive home or wake up in the morning without compromising your green credentials.

Unparalleled Service

The Wave comes with our “love it or return it” guarantee – if not completely satisfied, you can return the Wave for a full refund (terms and conditions apply). Your new Wave is also protected by our dedicated support team who will help you resolve any issues you may have.

SqueezePad is a remote for Logitech Media Server (which the Wave is based on) with a very clean and simple interface. If you have an iPad, this is our recommended app.

iPeng

iPeng 8 (iPhone/iPad)

iPeng is another remote for the Logitech Media Server. Its main advantage is being compatible with both iPhone and iPad so if you plan to use both, this is the way to go. iPeng 8 has a beautiful interface specifically designed for iOS though we find it a bit more confusing to use than SqueezePad.
