Hard disc based music storage and distribution systems have been around for a few years now, but few seem to offer a solution quite as sleek and integrated as the Sooloos. Rather than just providing an empty box that you fill up yourself with rips from your existing CD library, Sooloos comes pre loaded with your music, including album artwork and liner notes. From there they can provide subscriptions to keep you up to date with the latest releases, and genre based packages to fill holes in your existing collection.
Storage is handled by noiseless convection cooled RAID type servers that come in 1, 2 and 3 TB versions, with the option to link storage units to provide additional capacity. The music is stored and distributed as lossless files, and the system can include as many as 32 individual zones. The main control panel which you use to import new files and control the storage system is a 17" touch screen, with smaller 7" panel and remote control options for each zone. It is also compatible with existing control systems such as Crestron. As you might expect, prices aren't exactly cheap, starting at about $12,000 for a single zone system, or you could use that money to buy about 800 CDs, and do it the old fashioned way.
