The New Digital Music Manager from Vantage: Not Just another Digital Audio Server

Vantage's Digital Music Manager (DMM)aggregates all audio sources, formats and remotes into one easily operated solution. No longer does the homeowner need to worry about different music sources or formats-

Equipped with the ability to automatically seek out all of the digital music sources in a home's network, the Digital Music Manager can stream live from a laptop, USB/MP3 players, Internet Radio, or any shared music files; in addition to playing any of the CDs ripped and stored on the Digital Music Manager itself. No longer does the homeowner need to worry about different music sources or formats - - the Digital Music Manager aggregates all audio sources, formats and remotes into one easily operated solution.

Furthermore, the Digital Music Manager boasts support for four independent audio streams; meaning that a homeowner can enjoy their favorite Internet radio station in the kitchen, while their son streams live from his laptop upstairs, their spouse enjoys '80s music in the exercise room and a house guest listens to their iPod in the living room. What's more, the guest's iPod metadata will populate to the Digital Music Manager when plugged in, and stream live music from the iPod. When the iPod is removed, so too is the metadata content, restoring the system to its original state.

"The Digital Music Manager is the product of two years of research, collaboration, and attention to even the smallest detail. The result is the most powerful system on the market, dedicated to the highest quality entertainment and listening experience."

Unique to the Digital Music Manager is the CD ripping functionality; CDs are copied at seven times sampling to obtain the purest quality audio. A dealer can actually put a CD that is scratched beyond use into the Digital Music Manager, and when ripped it sounds brand new.

The Digital Music Manager comes equipped with the following:
• 500 Gigabytes of storage (approximately 800 -1000 CDs) with an option to upgrade to a Terabyte
• Free Internet Radio (V Tuner)
• USB/MP3 support
• Network Attached Storage Device (NAS) with ripping capability and back -up drive
• High Quality Ripping & Sampling

The Digital Music Manager seamlessly integrates with Vantage's InFusion Media Platform, Axium multi -room amplifier and touch screen interfaces. In fact, the intelligent interface is another key feature of the Digital Music Manager. The user -friendly interface displays album cover art, allows the homeowner to search by artist, album or genre, and creates and stores playlists.
