Cary Intros IP Based MS-1 Music Server  Print E-mail
Home Theater News Music Servers/MP3 Players News

The MS-1 music server is a first for Cary.  The company is well known for its CD and DVD players, but the MS-1 marks Cary's entry into the digital age.  The MS-1 is an almost completely hands free unit.  To put music on it, all you need to do is put in a CD, which will automatically be ripped down to FLAC, and then ejected.  There's a full terabyte of space on the MS-1, which allows for around 2,800 CDs to be stored.

If you've got a fully digital collection, you can simply upload it to the MS-1 using FTP, or transfer it via a USB drive.  It'll play FLAC, MP3, OGG, AAV, WAV, M4A and WV files, so there's no need to wonder about compatibility. The one thing that's strange about the MS-1 is that it's specifically designed for use with the iPhone and iPod Touch.  There's no other option for remotes control so if you don't already own one of the two, you'll have to get one to use the MS-1.

You can order the MS-1 now for $2,500 direct from Cary.  Shipping is slated to start on May 10th.
