Aimed at businesses, hospitals and schools, the cart is compatible with the Apple iPad 2, 3, 4, Mini, Mini 2 and Air. It comes in white, beige and black and holds up to 30 tablets at once through multiple built-in charge ports and pullout trays. The cart, equipped with an acrylic frosted window to view the devices, fully charges all tab- lets in up four to six hours.

When closed, the door includes a lock to prevent theft. In addition, an ultraviolet light inside the cart sanitizes both the devices and the cases while charging. "This function is particularly important in environments where germs are prevalent, such as schools or hospitals," the company noted. All charging ports are compatible with Trident Case products, so there is no need to remove the cases be- fore charging.

Auralic Bridge Adds DSD 256 Wi-Fi VENETIAN TOWER SUITE 29-323 Auralic is adding Wi-Fi streaming of DSD 256 (quad-DSD) music f les from a PC or NAS drive to its $999 Aries streaming bridge, which already streams 2.8MHz DSD (64), 5.6MHz double-rate DSD (128), and Digital eXtreme Def nition (DXD) over 802.11 ac Wi-Fi networks. The company claims it's the f rst to offer DSD 256 streaming over Wi-Fi. The addition of DSD256 streaming follows Auralic's recent addition of the CD-quality Tidal streaming service to the Aries. USB playback was also re- cently added. Via the Lightning app, users browse their music library, select songs, and choose hardware settings. The app, which also features built-in cloud-based music services such as Spotify, is available for Apple iOS and Android mobile devices, Win- dows PCs, Mac OS X and Linux OS. Aries uses a USB Host output to output 2.8MHz DSD (64), 5.6MHz double-rate DSD (128), and DXD in a bit-perfect way to a USB-equipped DAC. To a DAC, the Aries' USB out- put also sends PCM in sampling rates from 44.1kHz to 384kHz at 16-, 24- and 32-bit resolutions. Also via USB, the bridge outputs such audio formats as AAC, AIFF, ALAC, APE, DIFF, DSF, FLAC, MP3, OGG, WAV, WV and WMA.
