The first product of its kind, Ripserver can store up to 2400 albums in MP3 format with a USB port for the option of additional storage. Not only does this small box with big storage capability store and protect your valuable music, the built in CD ripping engine lets you effortlessly rip CDs without having to use a PC.
Once plugged into your network, operation is simple. With a fan-less, noiseless design, Ripserver is designed for 24/7 operation - simply insert a CD into the drive and the CD is converted to MP3 or FLAC within a few minutes, added to your media library and available on a network share, then gently ejected.
Ripserver is compatible with many entertainment devices such as Linn DS, Sonos, Logitech, PS3 and Xbox 360 and is the ultimate companion to these systems - making access to your music simple and immediate.
Patrick McGrath - Ripfactory's Director of Technology and self-confessed digital music nut is delighted to be reaching the home user market with Ripserver:

We at Ripfactory are delighted to be offering such a unique product which lets home users enjoy and access their music simply and efficiently."
Ripserver runs on the Linux platform which offers supreme stability and CD ripping is provided in a secure way to negate any errors in both FLAC and MP3 formats and the entire system is fully configurable via a dedicated web interface. Ripserver is fully UPnP and DLNA compliant.
