The AudioTron by Turtle Beach represents
a new generation of home entertainment devices--a "smart
stereo component" that takes full advantage of the power and
convenience of home networking, yet fits right in with the
rest of your home entertainment system.
AudioTron uses a PC network connection to play digital music
files stored on a PC's hard drive or streaming audio from
Internet radio broadcasts--you don't have to be in front of
your PC to enjoy the benefits of your digital music library.
Storing music on your PC makes it easy to manage your music
collection, create custom playlists, and select songs without
having to search through a pile of CDs, effectively
transforming your PC into a powerful jukebox with thousands of
songs. Best of all, by installing several AudioTron players
throughout your home, several users can simultaneously listen
to Internet radio broadcasts or play different songs from the
same song library, making the entire music collection
accessible to the whole family.
The Ethernet Digital Music player lets you enjoy the digital
audio you have stored on your computer in MP3, Windows Media (WMA)
and WAV formats through your conventional stereo system. The
player streams digital audio over an Ethernet or HPNA network
and supports music libraries of more than 30,000 songs. This
lets you consolidate your CD and MP3 collection into a single
digital music library on your networked PCs. Since it works
through your stereo, the player is also equipped to optimize
the digital sound via analog and digital optical S/PDIF audio
outputs, for potential audiophile music quality. And it fits
right in to the rest of your rack, with familiar controls
including random play, repeat play and song grouping.
The device also comes with an integrated Web server,
controlled by your PC control via its Web browser. You can
also play Internet radio streaming audio in MP3 and Windows
Media formats. The included remote control lets you assign up
to 20 preset buttons for instantly accessing your favorite
songs and Internet radio stations.
