The Audiophile

The System That Does It All

Ultra High End Audio & Video System


Sound this rich has never been so affordable.

Quality and price point are two (of the many) reasons this is our fastest growing product line.

Ultra high-end Audio Server, 4K Video Player and massive media archive/centralized digital storage unit - all wrapped in to one neat package.

HDMI, SPDIF, Optical or Digital Coax

Superior Sound Quality - A Fraction of the Cost

With sound quality testing equal or exceeding others in its field, you don't need to spend tens of thousands of dollars to receive an ultra high end audio experience. 

Each component contains hand selected for high end audio components, from gold plated DAC-Up USB's (sound cards) to Onboard Operational Amplifiers and high end audio capacitors, separating PCB layers on the motherboard.

Assassin AR-1’s are the ONLY High End Audiophile System that doubles as a ultra high end Audio Server and a 4K HDR video system while even tripling (if you want it to) as a centralized media storage system for all your media content!

Totally Silent Operation

This baby hums, but doesn't make a sound. AR-1 is virtually silent with only minimal noise contributed to environment during CD ripping. In comparisons with totally passive systems, the AR-1 shows no difference in noise contribution, and actually is quieter due to not having to load CD/Media each time because it is able to store content electronically. This directly disproves the claim that an audiophile machine has to be fan-less, to be silent.

Assassin Proprietary Cooling System

Our Platinum power supplies paired with our case/processor cooling utilize on demand fans that are only used when it is under heavy load.  These fans will are able to spin at 1% of normal fan speed. When the fans start to spin, they produce virtually zero noise. 

The Assassin cooling system allows greater user flexibility and protects the hardware from burn-out, which is commonplace in most passive systems found in the audiophile market.



Sound Clarity & Hi-Def Audio, Second to None

We use the most powerful internal components, delivering the highest-quality audio from blu-ray and hi-def streaming websites. Couple that with amazing video capabilities, and you have yourself an unbeatable system.  

Our bit-streaming is partnered with JRiver, providing users error-free testing of alternative external DACs. Take advantage of JRiver's customizable software to create an audio experience that exceeds all expectations. 


Assassin Recommends audio over HDMI

If you have an older processor or receiver, we still have SPDIF options for you. HDMI is not only convenient, it also is the leader in performance. It has up to 18gbps bandwidth surpassing USB sound cards. Say goodbye to latency issues and hello to HDMI supporting Hi-Res Audio and UHD 4K HDR!
