And unlike many music players, the HDX back-up system also gives you the peace of mind of knowing that your previously stored tracks are safe and secure.
London (PRWEB) April 24, 2008
Modern music lovers face a dilemma: digital music players are easy and fun but, usually the music files are compressed, so they lack the sound quality of CDs.
Digital music players are great on the move but when it comes to home audio, most docking stations simply can't get the best out of your music.
Now Salisbury-based audio supremo Naim has solved the dilemma by launching HDX - the world's first performance-upgradeable Hard Disk Player for the home.
With unrivalled audiophile sound quality, this standalone Hard Disk Player can rip and store 600 albums in full CD quality - nothing is compressed or lost. For those with more extensive music collections, the HDX can access up to 20,000 additional CDs stored on your home network.
The HDX gives you fast and easy access to your favourite songs through a sophisticated music library that searches not only according to artist and track but also includes an extended music database.
Naim Audio managing director Paul Stephenson said: "Wanting instant access to your favourite music no longer has to mean compromising on quality.
"The HDX was designed to solve problems. It provides the immediacy of a digital music player with the sound quality of a CD and all available through your home audio system.
"And unlike many music players, the HDX back-up system also gives you the peace of mind of knowing that your previously stored tracks are safe and secure."
As well as the touchscreen on the front, the system can also be managed through your laptop or accessed via a remote control or even your TV which means you don't have to put down your glass of wine to change tracks. And as the HDX can be connected to your home network, it can provide the beginnings of a multi room system.
The HDX is available from £4500. To find out how to get your hands on the latest advancement in Hi-Fi, contact your nearest Naim dealer or visit http://www.naimaudio.com.
Naim's HDX Hard Disk Music Player: High-end performance with style
Notes for Editors
Integrating Naim's HDX into your existing music system
The HDX is a standalone Hard Disk /CD player. It can sit in a hi-fi system connected to an amplifier which in turn will be connected to loudspeakers. An ideal combination would be Naim's award-winning SuperNait amplifier and N series loudspeakers. Two discreet loudspeakers and a stylish subwoofer can deliver the sort of accuracy of performance that has to be heard to be believed. This system takes up little space, is visually attractive in an understated way but can deliver excitement and emotion in a way that only a great music system can.
