Default New Olive OPUS 307s Music Server

Olive introduces new OPUS 307S. Increases value of free CD Preload service.

-Increasing its product range around its award-winning OPUS pure audio systems, Olive Media Products today
announced a new OPUS NO3 featuring a 250GB hard drive with perpendicular
recording technology delivering lower power consumption, higher storage density,
improved long-term reliability and super quiet operation. This completes the
adjusting of product lines, focusing on the category defining OPUS system. Going
forward the Olive Symphony and Musica will be referred to as OPUS NO3, the
top-of-the-line OPUS as OPUS NO5.
The new hard drive holds more than 700 CDs in lossless quality, and is the
industry's largest capacity drive in a 2.5" form factor. Pushing the edge on long
term hard disk reliability, the OPUS 30
7S takes advantage of a special
technology that parks the recording heads off the disk surface during spin up,
spin down and when the drive is off. This ensures that the recording head never
touches the disk surface, resulting in less head wear and an improved non-
operational shock tolerance. Additionally, the new hard drive technology features
state-of-the-art seeking algorithms reducing operational noise to as low as 26
dBA. The noise emission is further improved by the OPUS' fanless design, making
it virtually inaudible within the home stereo environment.
Furthermore, Olive today announced new CD limits for its popular Preload CD
importing service. Olive Preload rips existing CDs and converges them into a
unified digital music library that is loaded "ready-to-enjoy" onto an Olive pure
audio system. Customers can now send Olive up to 300 CDs to be preloaded for
free onto their music center, a service valued at $250. Any size music library is
accommodated,
with extra CDs preloaded at competitive rates. The combination
of Olive's OPUS pure audio systems with its free Preload service has received wide
press recognition for providing customers with a convenient one-stop solution to
migrate their CD collections to high quality music library at their fingertips.
PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
Olive's OPUS 305S with 160GB sells for US$1,199, the new OPUS 307S 250GB
version for $1,699. All solutions are sold exclusively through Olive
(1.877.BY.OLIVE, www.olive.us).

From the Enjoy the Music website news

High-End Audiophile News - RMAF 2007, CEDIA Expo 2008, Trends UD-10.1, Naim Supernait, Audioengine 2, AVI ADM9, Harmonix RFA-7800 RFA-80i, B&W Zeppelin, Oppo DV-980H, Vincent SV-234, Dynaudio Sapphire, Droplet LP3.3, ATC SCM16A, PSB Synchrony

We have it on good word that Linn will be debuting their high performance Akurate Music Server, claimed by Linn to be the world's best sounding, highest performance music server offering 8 channels of stereo and full bandwidth CD quality playback at CEDIA. With music stored remotely on a standard networked hard drive array (NAS), music lovers can enjoy unlimited storage capacity and peace of mind from a secure, reliable, flexible and upgradeable solution. The Akurate Music Server allows concurrent access by up to 8 users, so is ideal for use in multi-room distributed audio systems. The compact, rack-mountable Akurate Music Server can be controlled by a third party device via RS232 or Ethernet (e.g. AMX or Creston). Linn will also be unveiling their new reference-standard source component the Klimax DS. The Klimax DS is the "first authentic hi-fi product to stream digital music over a standard home network" says Linn. In true Linn fashion with 'the source comes first', the Klimax DS sets an ultra-high performance standard by "retrieving more information from the network than any other Digital Music Player" claims Linn. These are indeed bold claims and if Linn's history is any indication, they may have a right to brag. Enjoy the Music.com has reviewed many Linn products including their Classic integrated amplifier (here), Kan monitors (here), Katan loudspeaker (here), Sizmik 10.25 subwoofer (here), Sizmik 12.45 subwoofer (here), and Adikt MM cartridge (here).

I am very worried about Linn after letting 90 employees go this year.

Linn is an ALL-TIME favorite for me but I am not sure of their direction right now.

I wish them all the best....
