The Olive 4HD is a Hi Fi media server for the CD-collecting generation and music connoisseur. The 4HD plugs straight into a stereo amplifier for playback but also rips CDs and 24bit CDs to its 2TB hard drive via the state-of-the-art DAC and CD drive. It can store 6,000 CDs or 20,000 24bit tracks which should keep the party going for a while.
It’s not just highbrow music though, it’ll connect to your 802.11b/g/n or Gigabit network, talk to your Mac or PC and stream music from anything on the network. It even has album art. All this fun will cost you US$1,999 but hey, it looks great! [Via]
As part of your home entertainment system the Olive 4HD connects directly to a stereo receiver. Music libraries are easy to navigate through the integrated touchscreen, or, using the unit’s built-in HDMI interface, on a TV. Olive also offers a free iPhone/iPod Touch application that allows users to control the HD Hi-Fi Music Server from anywhere within the home network
