        As the centerpiece for any home audio system, the Adagio Audio Server (AAS) provides an easy, powerful way to store and enjoy your complete music collection, with the ability to instantly access any album or track from touchpanels, keypads and computers throughout the home.

        Instant Access
        The AAS Audio Server is a hard disk based audio system which can store many hundreds of hours of music, all with the convenience of instant access from its front panel, from a computer, or from Crestron touchpanels and keypads. Whether you select a track by title, album, artist, or genre, the AAS locates it instantly and plays it at your command. With a 250GB internal hard drive, literally thousands of hour’s worth of music can be stored.

        On-Screen Menu
        Browsing through albums and tracks, ripping CDs, and organizing a complete music library is fun and easy using the onscreen menu (OSM). Displayed on a video or SVGA monitor, the OSM shows full album, track, and artist names as well as album cover art, letting you manage and play the entire music library using the front panel controls or IR remote. The same OSM can be viewed and navigated using any computer Web browser (Macromedia® Flash® required), or even a Crestron touchpanel as part of a complete control system.

        Easy Loading
        Loading an entire CD collection onto the AAS is easy. Just place a CD into the disk tray, and the AAS rips it to digital in less time than it would take to play it. Then, the AAS automatically connects to the Gracenote CDDB Music Recognition Service via an Internet connection, downloading all of the information and cover art graphics for that CD. This information can also be entered manually, building a complete database for the entire music library.

        Custom Playlists
        The AAS lets you organize and control your music collection the way you want it. Using playlists, the AAS can be customized to suit the individual tastes of each family member, with the ability to compile different playlists for different moods and occasions. At any time, just select a playlist and let the AAS be the DJ, serving up a perfect mix of music from the list of tracks that you specified.

        Multi-Zone Outputs
        With up to 4 stereo outputs, the AAS is a vital component of any multi-room audio distribution system. The discrete outputs allow up to four different tracks to play in four different rooms at once. Professional quality features ensure exceptional audio quality in every room.

        Plug-and-Play Integration
        The AAS affords easy plug-and-play setup as part of a complete Adagio system. Without any programming, Adagio delivers full access and control of the AAS from every room in the house. The AAS can also be integrated with other systems, with control provided via Ethernet or IR.

        Computer Access
        The AAS even lets you listen to your music directly on any computer and transfer tracks to portable devices using applications such as Windows Media® Player or Apple® iTunes®. Connected to your home LAN, the AAS simply behaves as a network drive allowing for easy file management.

        NAS Support*
        For those music fans with immense amounts of music, or audiophiles who accept nothing less than full lossless quality, the AAS allows for increased storage capacity using NAS (Network Attached Storage) solutions available from a variety of manufactures.

Underlying the browser is Gracenote MusicID™, the industry standard for digital music identification for both CDs and individual music files, providing the ability to navigate and organize any large music collection. The accurate and complete Gracenote MusicID™ information embedded in the music file provides many benefits, including this example of locating a duet with artist Tim McGraw (Country Genre) and artist Nelly (Pop Genre).


        Browser Screen: Within the selected album, individual tracks can be selected, played immediately, or added to a playlist.


        Full Player Screen: Displays all the information about the current selection, including elapsed time, time remaining, duration, track number, and playlist selection number. Advanced shuffle and repeat functions by songs and lists are featured.
