Back in May, media server provider Qsonix announced a working relationship with Wadia Digital that would help the distribution and the performance of its products.
Six weeks later the company has introduced its Q2 series of products. These new products are said to utilize a new design and they feature digital output designs from Wadia, which in recent years gained acclaim for its iTransport dock.
Some of the improvements made to the Q2 line include a new enclosure that’s highlighted by a machined aluminum front panel. The company has also addressed its user interface and added options like Apple iPad control capabilities.
Improvements made to its audio circuits include the ability to support 24-bit/192kHz uncompressed audio files and a custom designed digital output section from Wadia. The servers offer AES/EBU balanced digital audio, S/PDIF, Toslink and USB digital outputs, as well as four discrete analog output options, hard-wired IR connections and the ability to support third-party control systems from companies like Crestron and AMX.
Qsonix also offers the servers with a choice of 1TB or 2TB hard drives, 15-inch or 17-inch touchscreens, built-in support for PC and Apple computers and iPods, iPhones and iPads.
No word on pricing, so check with Qsonix or your local custom electronics pro for more info.
