I plugged in the 'NEW' AVA Media RipnPlay (from 10,000 kr) today. The rest of the system consisted of AVA Maestro-50 (3495 kr) and a pair of LINN Unik speakers (4000 kr), 10 seconds later I opened my UpNp control software from LINN (Kinsky), selected RipnPlay as my player, chose a track and played Mumford & Sons (Babel 24 Bit). BAM!!
The sound stage is amazing, the clarity is amazing, even the timing ... amazing! What an amazing player and remember this is not just a digital streaming UpNp controlled source product but even an automatic ripping NAS with 2TB of on-board storage.
**it's amazingly simple ... anyone can rip their music collection automatically with it and stream to their HiFi after a 30 second demonstration**
The chassis is machine from a single nougat of aluminium and with an anodized finish looks and feels amazing, but this chassis protects from unwanted noise and acts as a heat sink so 'No FANS'.
The first five people to buy the new 2TB RipnPlay will receive a FREE Maestro-50. Just add speakers!!
