It's a 160GB music server that use proprietary Yahama "MusicCast," wireless technology to stream music to different Yamaha units.
As music servers go it's actually pretty good. The SQ is above average and the system is extremely intuitive. The problem for me is the price point of $2000 puts you in the category of looking at alternatives.
The alternatives like Control4's media server have more functions (like in the Control4's case lighting control to name 1).
