Olive just announced the OPUS Nº5, as well as the end of the audio CD. Them’s fightin’ words!

This networked audio system doesn’t just store the music, it also allows you to browse, mix, or listen to your music library as well as web radio. And just in case you’ve got a few CDs still kicking around, you can rip and burn those too.

Unlike your portable player, this unit has the company’s Pure Audio System, a pair of TI’s 24-bit 192 kHz DAC modules, a 123dB signal/noise ratio, Mac and PC support, and more—all in a slick, solid chassis. You can find all of the geek speak on the Olive’s product page.

The OPUS Nº5 starts at 400GB for $2,999. You can buy it on Olive’s website or Amazon.
