Olive OPUS no4 server

Olive Media on Wednesday announced the release of its newest digital music server, the OPUS N4, which is capable of storing music from up to nearly 3,000 CDs without degrading their quality thanks to FLAC lossless compression. Stored music is sorted by genre, album or artist, and is accessed via a new software accessed through a fresh 4.3-inch color touch-screen. While the OPUS will play stored music and regular CDs, Olive's equally new MELODY N2 is required to play audio stored in the N4 in up to 10 rooms simultaneously, and is capable of doing so wirelessly.

Olive claims the server can be set up easily, and even offers to ship the units with up to 100 CDs already contained on its ultra quiet hard drives. To keep noise to a minimum, the drives are wrapped in 8 layers of noise-cancelling padding. The servers are also designed to accommodate 94kHz / 24bit HD music.

The servers feature aluminum skin covered in either silver or black.

Pricing of the OPUS N4 server starts at $1,500 for the 320GB version, and 500GB, 750GB and 1TB versions are also offered.
