Autonomic Controls Mirage Media Server MMS-5A
The Mirage MMS-5A provides users with cloud-based access to their entire music collections and supports audiophile-quality 24-bit/192kHz digital output. This means that the MMS-5A can be used as both an audiophile playback device and a whole-house audio distribution system simultaneously. Local music syncs to the MMS-5A from a Mac, PC or NAS, then uploads to a secure Internet data locker for synchronization with an MMS at a second home or remote access on a portable device from anywhere in the world. The MMS-5A streams Pandora, Rhapsody, SiriusXM, Last.fm, Spotify and TuneIn alongside all popular audio formats at native quality. The MMS-5A is engineered exclusively for custom integrators and includes pre-programmed modules for popular control systems. On-screen navigation displays HD browsing, metadata, cover art and slideshows. Additional control options include a redesigned web-based user interface and mobile apps for iOS devices. The MMS-5A supports six independent audio streams with digital outputs and four stereo pair of RCA jacks (analog outputs) for distribution to any number of zones. Compatible with standard A/V racks (1RU), the new chassis includes rack ears and optional feet.

The MMS-5A is an ultra high quality digital music playback solution that resolves fragmented libraries, sparing users from manual synchronization by leveraging cloud-based storage to aggregate content from multiple locations into a single collection. Lesser products often have degraded audio quality, unreliable connectivity, fewer streaming options, visible wires and the need to purchase units for every connected room, making the Mirage Media Server the most sophisticated media distribution solution. The MMS-5A is designed for custom integrators, with advanced modules engineered specifically for the most popular control systems included with each system. This streamlines the installation process and gives end users an intuitive entertainment solution that interacts seamlessly with their existing home control platform.
