Fidelia is a high-definition audio player for sophisticated music lovers. With support for all contemporary audio file formats and an elegant interface that focuses exclusively on music, it gives users the power and the freedom to organize, customize and savor their digital music collection at the highest possible fidelity in any circumstance. If you've invested in premium audio hardware, you should have the best audio software.
Just as an HD television enables viewers to enjoy high-definition video, Fidelia provides a gateway to high-definition audio by supporting a wide range of high-quality formats — including FLAC, which iTunes does not support. As artists in every genre increasingly turn to high-quality formats, Fidelia gives discerning listeners a way to hear their music as it was meant to be heard.
Fidelia's stylish interface reflects users' pure passion for music, paying tribute to the iconic stereo systems of decades past while offering sleek, intuitive controls that Mac owners demand. A classically styled volume dial is augmented by Mute and Dim functions. A crisp, eye-pleasing display shows individual track details, stereo levels and audio waveforms. Fidelia also provides seamless access to your existing iTunes music library.
With Fidelia, savvy music lovers have the ability to further personalize audio playback by installing third-party Audio Unit plug-ins. For example, Fidelia reaches beyond the narrow parameters of typical built-in equalization controls, allowing users to install higher-quality EQ and other Audio Units plug-ins to suit any taste or listening environment.
Audiofile's Fidelia Audio System optimizes the modern listening experience by realizing the full potential of quality audio hardware. No matter what type of sounds are in play, it incorporates Goodhertz's sample rate conversion, a new standard, to achieve optimum sonic fidelity. Dedicated audiophiles can also select real-time audio dithering via Goodhertz' Good Dither™ technology.
Fidelia features CanOpener™ Headphone Processing by Goodhertz, enabling you to create a more spacious, natural soundstage when listening with headphones. With user controls that are simple and effective, the algorithm can be fine tuned to your personal music library, listening preferences, and hardware.
CanOpener utilizes a unique, dynamic-range optimized equalization section to maintain the highest possible digital resolution at any setting. So you’ll never need to worry about digital clipping, distortion, or loss of headroom when using CanOpener. The CanOpener monitoring section offers several key monitoring facilities that are typically reserved for high-end monitor controllers or mastering consoles.
