Ballston Spa, New York -January 6, 2005 -ReQuest Inc, the acknowledged leader in digital music systems for high -end home media integration, has announced the release of a Special Edition of its category -leading design -the AudioReQuest Fusion. For a limited time, the highest -capacity Fusion model, the F400P, will be available 'to order' in a stunning red, high -gloss finish.
The Special Edition model, a/k/a the "Little Red ReQuest," allows music lovers to store, organize, and access their music by song title, artist, album, genre, and personal playlists. Advanced integration and networking features make AudioReQuest a superior choice for multi -room, multi -source, and multi -location AV systems.
Music formats supported include industry -standard MP3 compressed audio at all bit rates and variants, as well as the uncompressed WAV and FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) formats. This gives Fusion the unique ability to deliver all the power and convenience of storing complete collections of music at the very best quality with uncompromised, truly audiophile -standard sound.
The 400GB drive available with the F400P model delivers the capacity to store nearly 700 CDs' worth of bit -perfect music via the full -fidelity, uncompressed WAV format at a bit rate of 1411 kbs, or up to 3000 CDs worth of music at MP3's top -quality 320kbs rate -or nearly a full year of no -repeat, 24/7 music at more typical MP3 rates.
Seamless integration with Apple's iPod/iTunes systems makes portable and Web -accessed music an integral part of a high -performance whole -house system. ReQuest's patented NetSync™ technology lets the AudioReQuest Fusion share its vast music library and top -quality sound with any Ethernet -connected personal computer or compatible device -whether in the next room or around the world, using ReQuest's fully secure ARQLink™ log -in connection. ReQuest's MyARQ™ and Java -based software remote let any Web -browser -equipped PC or Mac manage playlists and act as a secure access point; there's even ARQPocket™, which enables full two -way control of the Fusion via any handheld PocketPC. What's more, like other Fusion models, the Little Red ReQuest Special Edition can be easily expanded into a multi zone system by adding one or more F400Z multi -source expanders for fail -safe backup.
