Hush Digifitm The Perfect Partner For Linn Digital Stream Players
New HUSH DigiFi integrate LINN DS players into CEDIA multi-room control systems
(PresseBox) (Leonberg, ).
- HUSH DigiFi delivers a one-stop storage & control solution for integrating LINN DS players into custom installations.
- LINN and HUSH DigiFi combine to offer installers a full IP-based solution, with storage and control infrastructure in a centralised rackmount location, and digital distribution over CAT5 to LINN DS Players.
- LINN and HUSH DigiFi offer installers easy user interface customisation for DS players with supplied control modules for leading control systems and devices, including Crestron and AMX.
First launched in 2007 and hailed as the future of music, Linn DS players deliver breakthrough specialist HiFi performance completely in tune with the way forward-thinking people live. Operating on a standard home network, Linn DS players let you access and enjoy the highest quality music formats, and enable customers to manage their music collection the way they want.
The new HUSH DigiFi, launching this autumn, will make it easier than ever to integrate Linn DS players into custom installations. Pre-configured to support LINN DS players, the HUSH DigiFi offers custom installers a robust, reliable and repeatable install with no need to deploy any other third party software. It is also flexible enough to support the customer's listening needs in every room of the home, for example, Klimax DS in the main listening room and Sneaky Music DS in local rooms.
Encased in a stunning, precision engineered aerospace-grade aluminium chassis, and using HUSH's patented and award winning silent cooling technology, two DigiFi models will be available:
- DF200, with a terabyte of internal storage
- DF100, for installations that use entirely external NAS drives
Both models rip and encode to WAV, MP3, and WMA, and are able to store content to NAS drives (the DF100 rips directly to NAS) to support and back up the most extensive music collections.
The combination of LINN DS and HUSH DigiFi offers maximum audio performance from all digital music; whether ripped from CD or downloaded from the internet, including Studio Master downloads from www.LinnRecords.com. Able to provide ripping and local storage of music as well as ripping directly to NAS drives, the HUSH DigiFi is also able to 'harvest' content stored on any drives shared on the home network, as well as connected MP3 players and USB drives. All the music catalogued is displayed as one music library for control either by the HUSH DigiFi's own interfaces but also by Crestron and AMX.
"We are delighted to work with HUSH to help them integrate our DS product range with their DigiFi products," enthused Gilad Tiefenbrun, Director of Engineering at LINN, "what this actually means is that, for the first time ever, customers can now specify the unrivalled performance of the LINN DS players in their multiroom system, and have them controlled transparently by equipment from traditional CEDIA brands like Crestron or AMX." He added, "a LINN DS simply appears as another 'room' within one of these brands' control surfaces - HUSH has revolutionised the CEDIA market and we look forward to developing this exciting market opportunity with them.
"Linn recognise that custom installers want a simple, customisable solution for our DS players, and we are delighted that the HUSH DigiFi delivers that, and more. "
