Product Description


Designed by and for music lovers and audiophiles, aria is a no-compromise music server system sure to please both audiophiles in search of sonic excellence and music lovers with large collections of CDs and/or digital files for whom a powerful and easy-to-use music library management tool is key. aria is the only hardware music server on the market to supports an unlimited number of extended metadata fields for any music genre. This facility allows users to sort and view their music collection in multiple ways such as: albums from the romantic (Period) for piano (Instrument), played by Maurizio Pollini (Soloist). For users’ convenience aria has 18 predefined fields automatically matching the tagging structure of Aria's proprietary classical music database, SonataDB. However you can delete or add fields at will. For any other music genre, all fields can be manually tagged.


Aria’s slim fanless 6mm thick precision machined aluminum chassis has been designed by Ochoa & Diaz-Llanos, a leading European industrial design studio. All hardware components have been carefully selected to meet the highest quality standard, computing electronics used are all industrial grade and audio components are hi-end quality.

The extremely low-power consumption, (typically only 10W), assures a low operating temperature, resulting in long life and reliability for all components.
