It is a gadget for music lovers and audiophiles and it promises to be quite cool. This high-resolution music system comes with an integrated memory of 4TB to store music which is impressive (I don’t think that my music collection is larger than 100GB). Form the 11.6” touchscreen LCD you will be able to control all your music from the music stored on the device itself to the collection from your computer and smartphone and from places like Apple Music, Spotify, Youtube, Pandora and Tidal.

So all the user’s music will be accessible in one place on the Nativ Vita player. From here the user will be able to enjoy the music wired or wireless.

The Nativ Vita is designed for super connectivity. It features WiFi 802.11ac, Gigabit Ethernet and Bluetooth with aptX and in plus it can be connected using wires to non-Bluetooth devices like headsets and home theaters.

Whne it comes to control there are some options from the Nativ Vita player you will be able to control the music from multiple devices and also you will be able to control the speakers, but you will also be able to control the player itself from a smartphone or smartwatch.
