The Weiss MAN301 Music Archive Network Player wraps everything you need, minus DAC, music storage and the mandatory iPad and associated app, into one very smart, clean, and simple box.
The MAN301, which is an Intel ITX based computer with 4GB of RAM, a 40GB SSD for the Ubuntu Linux OS, functions as a digital-only preamp, music server, network player, and CD player/ripper. The MAN301 can handle most popular file formats including WAV, FLAC, AIFF, ALAC, WMA, etc. and with a recent firmware update it also supports single and double rate DSD. The MAN301 also supports gapless playback.
Control of the MAN301 is strictly done through the MAN iPad app and the MAN301 comes with a very thorough 100+ page iBook user manual available for free from the Weiss website (WeissMAN.ibooks)
