To fulfill the demand for a computer-based music server that is easy to use and that sounds great, Genesis Advanced Technologies today announced the Genesis Muse Music Source (or the G-Source).
“I spent way too many years in the computer industry to market yet another complicated machine,” said Mr. Gary L. Koh, President and CEO of Genesis Advanced Technologies. “I wanted the G-Source to be a ‘black box’ that just sits there quietly and does everything you want. It is format-agnostic, and plays all resolutions of music from 16bit/44.1kHz to 32-bit/384kHz PCM to 11.2896MHz DSD. It will also play Internet radio, stream Pandora, and Rhapsody. If you are an audiophile and not content with the quality of the analog output, you can plug in the USB DAC of your choice. However, I believe that most customers will be satisfied with the quality of the analog output I have delivered.”
“The G-Source is probably the most exciting product I have seen from Genesis,” said Mr. Robb Niemann, CEO of Rutherford Audio, the exclusive Genesis distributor for North America. “When Gary gave me a prototype, he told me to down load an app, plug it in, and sit back and enjoy the music. It really turned out to be that simple, sounds great, and I can see one in the home of every music-lover.”
Price and Availability
The G-Source will be shown in prototype form at CES 2014, and first shipments are projected for March 2014 at an indicative price of $15,000 USD.
