Escient SE-500i Music Server - November 29th, 2008
Today’s multi room audio installations require multiple sources to be distributed throughout the home. The biggest challenge with audio distribution is to be able to digitally store all content, in order to allow easy access from every room. Escient music servers are the pinnacle of digital media management systems. There are two versions available providing 160Gb and 500Gb internal storages, respectively.
You can simply record all CD’s to the Escient’s internal hard drive and let the music server automatically connect to the Internet to identify each CD. The Escient music servers provide the user with the artist and album name, genre, song list and cover art. Multiple touch panels can retrieve all information throughout the home, creating an easy to use multi room audio system. Escient music servers can integrate with various home automation products like AMX and Elan.
The Fireball SE music servers can be of course used as a stand-alone audio source and replace an existing CD player. Philips touch panels now offer great integration with their TSU9600 and TSU9800 control touch panels, allowing for absolute control and ease of use. Multiple Escient music servers can be used together, if extra storage and multiple streams are required. IP based multi room audio systems like Netstreams can distribute up to five simultaneous audio streams from a single music server.
The free Escient Fireball PC software shares all music stored on a PC with an SE music server. Anyway you look at it, the Escient SE music servers are the easiest and most affordable way to enjoy your music now and in the future.
