New server candidate


#1

Interesting appliance from LH Labs (Geek Source):

It is confirmed that its HDMI port supports the PS Audio I2s protocol.

It has a huge internal storage opposed to the Auralic Aries bridge.

The price point is in the region of a Mac mini.

Proprietary OS.

It is not launched yet.

Very interesting, specially considering the I2S output. I could easily have missed it but I did not seen an estimated shipping date.

It seems like a Kickstarter campaign.

Probably not released before Q2 2015 if I understood correctly.

I have been reading ‘everything’ about it for the last couple of days.

It is still not absolutely clear to me whether it is a closed system or if it contains an uPnP server (I have seen hints about it, but no positive confirmation) which in my case is an absolute must if I am using the internal storage.

Post note:

It seems to support DLNA and NAS.

It is a bit unclear when the launch to market is planned.
