The Ultimate Music Streaming System

 |  |  October 9, 2006

While there are plenty of hard-disk based music streaming systems available these days, none is quite as schmancy as the Sooloos.

Sooloos Control One

The Sooloos is a complete home media management system in a very elegant package. There are three components to the system, the Store Series, The Control Series and the Source Series. The Sooloos Store series is configured as a mirrored pair of servers with 1 to 3 Terabytes of storage each. The Control Series provides LCD touch screen interfaces for the system. Multiple controllers can be placed throughout an installation in 17-inch, 7-inch and 7-inch wireless models. The 17-inch model features a slot loading CD player so you can rip new tracks directly into the system. The Source Series of components provides zone control and distribution for up to 32 discrete zones. All modules are fanless and feature noiseless cooling.

Sooloos even takes care of ripping all of your existing CDs for you and loading the box with your music, album artwork and liner notes. Subscriptions are available to keep up to date with new release data. All music encoding is lossless for optimal audio quality, and the distribution components offer audiophile quality output, based on designs used in professional recording studios.

Pricing starts at $12,000 for a single zone system and goes up from there. If money were no object, I’d love to have one of these puppies in my home.
