Symphony: digital HiFi solution for classical music

updated 12:10 pm EDT, Thu July 28, 2005

Symphony HiFi solution

Olive Media today announced , a wireless digital music center designed for true audiophiles. Olive Symphony is based on the popular idea of a central device that stores, manages and wirelessly distributes digital music throughout the home, but is engineered as a true HiFi component. High fidelity sound is achieved through Olive's Digital Pure Audio (DPA). The proprietary technology combines a 32-bit IBM PowerPC for flawless processing of audio in lossless quality, a fan-less design and a digital output to the user's stereo system. Users can record CDs, vinyl and tape onto the noiseless 2.5" 80GB hard-drive, which holds up to 20,000 songs. The integrated CD database identifies, tags and archives the CD automatically.












Users can wirelessly stream audio to up to 5 rooms simultaneously, update their iPod via USB or use the built-in CD-RW drive to burn and duplicate CDs. The system supports wireless 802.11g, allowing it to stream music from and to a Mac or PC. Two additional features set Symphony apart: The bundled Playlist Mac OSX software allows users to accurately manage classical music, and the Preload service offers a free upload of the user's music onto the Symphony.

"The quality limitations of lossy audio formats and problematic integration of convergence technology have made most digital solutions unacceptable for music aficionados.", said Oliver Bergmann, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer and President of Olive Media Products, Inc. "Olive enters the market from the perspective of a true audiophile, eliminating the PC experience entirely."

The Symphony will be available in the middle of August for $900.
