Meridian has begun shipping a next-generation Sooloos networked music server system that combines two components — touchscreen controller and hard-drive storage — into one chassis and reduces the entry price of a Sooloos system to $7,500.
The company also unveiled a next-generation component to connect the server system to multi-room-audio systems and offer a greater variety of audio connections to single-room hi-fi systems.
Like its predecessor, the new Control 15 server system features a built-in CD ripper, but the system also uses a home PC network to transfer and download songs from networked PCs and Macs. Networked PCs and Macs can also stream music from the server system. To read more about the Control 15, click here.
