Gracenote Provides Music Management For Russound's Smart Media Server Print E-mail
Friday, 10 September 2004
Gracenote announced that the new Russound SMS3 “Smart Media Server” will enable people to quickly identify any song, artist or album in their entire music collection or link to cover art and related content, using the Gracenote Music Management System. Russound’s SMS3 Smart Media Server stores and manages music and digital images providing easy retrieval from virtually anywhere in the home. The SMS3 can supply three different sources of music simultaneously, making it ideal for use in a high quality Multi-Source/Multi-Zone system. When used with a Russound CAV/UNO-S2 system, the artist, album, and song information is delivered directly to the user via the UNO display.

The SMS3 Media Server comes complete with a CD-ROM drive, internal 160GB hard drive and an Ethernet connection that allows the user access to their music and digital media throughout the home. Additionally, the on-board CD-ROM drive allows the server to be used as a CD player, offering the option of storing the selection on the hard drive. This is a quick, convenient way for the listener to create an extensive and easily sortable collection of their favorite music. The SMS3 also features a composite video output with an innovative and attractive graphical user interface.

Using Gracenote’s technology, the device provides quick identification and access to a person’s entire music collection, making it easy to find the exact song or type of music a person wants to listen to in seconds – for even the largest music collections.

The SMS3 is shipping currently and is priced at $2,899.
