Soolos Music System

Serious music listeners regularly invest thousands of dollars into their speaker systems, but those with particularly large collections may also want to invest in organizing their collections. The Soolos Music System is designed for just these users. At its core is a 17-inch touchscreen control system that lets users choose music by its album art and create playlists without having to use traditional computer controls. The main system, in turn, broadcasts its music wirelessly to as many as 32 different control zones which are accessed by separate 7-inch touchscreen remotes.

While this could be considered impressive by itself, Soolos also intends the Music System as a replacement for the faithful audio reproduction of luxury CD players: the minimum available storage is 1TB with drive mirroring, allowing every album to be transferred to the hard drive in a lossless format and backed up in case of a failure. The company will even volunteer to transfer albums to the system in advance and personalize it with song picks and reviews. As the features suggest, the Music System is far from a trivial expense at $12,000 for a one-zone, 1TB system, but with storage for at least 2,000 albums it will clearly satisfy the most dedicated music collectors.
