Panasonic music server

It may not make much sense to buy several complete speaker systems for your home, and to that end there's the Panasonic SC-PTX7, being demonstrated at CES. At the core is the control unit, which houses an 80GB hard drive, to which you rip music from a CD/DVD combo drive. Owners can of course play music discs without copying them, and XM radio is supported as well. Local is sound is produced by two satellites and a subwoofer, operating in Dolby Virtual Surround; users can also buy separate self-contained systems, however, which connect to the PTX7 wirelessly from elsewhere in your home. The remote units have their own amplifiers and can select which audio source to use, whether it be XM, CD, or the hard drive. The release date of the PTX7 has yet to be announced, but it should sell for $799. [Via SCI FI Tech]
