What is streaming? Technology’s answer to the problem that has plagued mankind since the invention of the gramophone; how to access your music quickly and easily without requiring a lot of space. Nowadays, with high volume storage, a music collection that takes up many terabytes can be stored on a box not much larger than an alarm clock and accessed from anywhere in the home. The typical setup consists of a network storage device (a series of hard drives) that, when plugged into a router, can be distributed anywhere in the home either via Ethernet cable or wirelessly; a digital media player located near the receiver reads the files and sends them to any amplifier – it’s that simple. If you want to expand your setup, it is straightforward to add additional pieces. We have wireless amplifiers that can put your music anywhere within range of your wi-fi, or even self-contained speakers/amplifiers.
