Colorado vNet, an award-winning home automation and multi-room digital audio system manufacturer, announced today the addition of a new member of their Vibe Audio System. Designed for limited-space and budget-constrained applications, the AS2-400/3 Audio Server is ideal for multi-dwelling units and provides a lower cost, entry-level option for all homeowners. It stores up to 400 uncompressed CDs on a 250GB hard drive and delivers up to three independent audio streams simultaneously on a Vibe system. The new Audio Server offers the unique ability to be mounted vertically on a wall, for example in an equipment closet. Audio files are loaded from a networked PC with vNet Director, the Colorado vNet PC-based software that allows users to easily upload and manage their music and playlists on the server.
“MDU developers and builders have asked for technology packages that will entice new buyers,” said Kasey Kumaran of Absolute Custom, a Colorado vNet integrator in Reston, VA. “This new Audio Server gives us a competitive edge in the MDU market–we can now easily meet builder requests with a lower-cost multi-room audio system without sacrificing the style and functionality Vibe offers.”
The AS2-400/3 is the third Vibe Audio Server available from Colorado vNet to store and organize hundreds of CDs in their original, uncompressed digital format for instant retrieval using the Vibe Touchscreen. The AS2-800/3 Audio Server stores up to 800 CDs on its 500 GB hard drive and delivers three unique, simultaneous audio streams onto a Vibe system, whereas the AS2-1200/6 Audio Server stores up to 1,200 uncompressed CDs on 750 GB of memory and broadcasts up to six independently-controlled streams of audio with full metadata.
Using the Vibe Color Touchscreen Amplifier, customers access their music from any Vibe Server, browsing by artist, album, song title, genre or custom playlist, and streaming full range, lossless CD-quality digital audio over IP to anywhere in the house. The same Touchscreens used for multi-zone audio also support integration to lighting, security, climate, CCTV cameras, and more.
