How it Works

The music extraction (ripping) operation is as simple as 123.

1. Insert your chosen Music CD into the slot loader, and the track information / album art is quickly retrieved from premium metadata providers (AMG, MusicBrainz and freedb).

2. The music data is then quickly stored in a lossless format: FLAC, Apple Lossless or WMA Lossless.

3. Additionally each CD is also converted to MP3 format, for portable devices.

Upon completion, typically 4 minutes, the Music CD is automatically ejected. The system is designed for headless operation, no keyboard, screen or mouse required.

Insert the CD and the AVA RS3 does the rest. Automatically. Silently.

The system provides music services to the following devices:

  • TwonkyMedia
  • SqueezeCenter (SlimServer)
  • iTunes players (PC and MAC)
  • Media Connect (PC Media Player)
  • DLNA devices (100's already in the market - ie PS3, Linn, Philips, and many more)
  • Sonos
  • Logitech / Slim Devices Squeezebox, Duet and Transporter
  • Windows File Shares (SMB / Samba)
  • Plus many more

Your music collection is extremely valuable, and extracting the music, can be costly in the first instance, or be done over many years as you add new content. The AVA RS3 automatically duplicates the music data across multiple physical storage devices, ensuring your music is always safe.

Although the AVA RS3 can store a huge music collections, in lossless and MP3 formats, there is no need to be worried about ever out growing the server - adding new, low cost, storage is extremely simple and takes only a moment to complete.
