AVA Media’s RIP-N-PLAY Music Server comes with many exciting features. The RIP-N-PLAY’s primary responsibility in the home is to extract the audio content from a CD, offering you the ability to effortlessly listen to your music collection anywhere throughout your home. As well as network streaming to a wide range of UPnP and DLNA devices, you can also locally playback the stored music from your RIP-N-PLAY, to do this simply use the integrated player and locally connect a device which supports an audio digital input like a DAC or digital amplifier. The RIP-N-PLAY also comes equipped with Squeezebox Server which means the RIP-N-PLAY is compatible with the wide range of Logitech Squeezebox products available on the market.
In addition, the RIP-N-PLAY has an application called Subsonic. Subsonic is an indexing application which allows playback and management of audio content stored on your RIP-N-PLAY. This means that Subsonic gives you access to the music stored on your RIP-N-PLAY, anywhere in the world. As long as you can get an internet connection, access to the iOS/Android app or access to a browser, then you can listen to your music limitlessly.
The playback components of the RIP-N-PLAY can support up to 3x simultaneous streams, two via USB (e.g – USB DACs) and one via digital COAX (e.g – a Maestro-50). These streams can be controlled by any UPnP control point. Thus meaning you can now enjoy your new music library wherever you want to hear it – throughout your digital home (via the player’s streams) or even on the move (via the Subsonic application).
The RIP-N-PLAY is simple to set up and can communicate with an abundance of recognised music systems on the market, offering an opportunity to utilise existing products owned or alternatively the opportunity to explore a world of exciting new DNLA and UPnP devices, which could be added to your home. Such devices range from the Apple iOS devices (iTunes) to the likes of SONOS, all which are well supported by the RIP-N-PLAY’s ability to extract to FLAC, ALAC (Apple Lossless) and MP3.
All these features can be found inside the RIP-N-PLAY’s precision-engineered aluminium casing, which is almost silent in operation and extremely ‘green’ resulting in very low power consumption.
Designed, built and fully supported in Britain by a company with 30 years of mechanical design expertise and world leading engineering credentials, the AVA Media RIP-N-PLAY is a media server like no other.
