New Music Server from Wadia

by The Audio Beat | February 12, 2014

adia's new m330 ($6000) is an integrated music server with onboard DAC and both balanced and single-ended analog outputs, so it can be connected directly to an existing audio system. It provides access to locally stored and Internet-based digital music at up to 24-bit/192kHz resolution via its 1TB internal hard drive and integrated interfaces to services such as Pandora, SiriusXM, Spotify, Rhapsody, TIDAL and TuneIn. USB and eSata ports allow for connection of additional external drives, and cloud access is available for file backup and synchronization for multiple units. The M330's operating system and music player run from an internal solid-state hard drive ensuring fast response, no noise and durability.

The m330 can be controlled via iPhone, iPad or Android apps, a web browser, or a remote control, and it is also compatible with many home automation systems. Of course, Wadia stresses the m330's inherent compatibility with the company's own 321 decoding computer and a315 or a340 amplifiers, "for a complete system solution."
