Billed as an audiophile-grade music server, the Cantata can handled wireless or wired USB connections, thanks to an add-on called Pont Neuf. Audio is output via XLR or RCA outputs. You can basically hook this box to your computer and it can play back your tunes in awesome quality up to 192kHz/24-bit – assuming they were encoded at such a high quality. The front side of the Cantata shows off an impressive dot-matrix LED display, which gives feedback as well.

The Cantata Music Center will cost you £5,995 (~$9,660 USD). Reserved for technological audiophiles with deep pockets, it’s been made to play music off computer libraries without losing any quality. And when you’re done spending $10k on the media player, why not pick up the matching amp, for another £3,995 (~$6,437 USD).
