Want to get into the world of audiophile music servers but not a techie? Here's a chance to buy a 'low mileage, one careful owner' all-in-one unit that can easily be expanded with more storage or additional playback zones.
What Hifi? said "Other music servers can rival the Control 15's sound quality, but nothing, at any price, gets close to its extraordinary usability" in their 5star review.
Stereophile magazine's Jon Iverson said, "Four years after my first review of the Sooloos system, I still don't think there's a better overall music-server system for the music lover and audiophile who wants to do away with the clutter of CDs and iTunes. I've seen and heard some pretty good mashups of DIY and commercial software and hardware, many of which now use iPads for control. But I've yet to come across anything that, overall, beats a Control 15–based system—especially if you've got lots of music."
The Control 15 includes the obvious touchscreen interface, 1TB of storage and digital output via Coax SPDIF or Meridian Speakerlink. This unit has been tested and updated to current firmware so it's ready to load your CD's and hi-res audio files into. If you need more storage just add a QNAP network storage unit to your network, similarly if you want more playback zones just add one of Meridian players.
