Smart Media Server 320 SMS3-320

The Russound Smart Media Server stores and manages your music, providing easy retrieval from virtually anywhere in your home. It supplies three different streams of music simultaneously, making it ideal for use in a multiroom audio system. When used with a Russound RNET® system, the artist, album, and song information is delivered directly to your UNO keypad or touchscreen display.

The Smart Media Server comes with a 320 GB hard drive. The SMS3-320 will store up to 5300 hours for nearly endless enjoyment of your favorite music.

You can load music from your CDs into the Media Server through a built-in CD-ROM reader or transfer music files from your computer. Using easy-to-navigate screens on your TV or computer, you can then organize the songs into themes by genre or artist for random playback or create playlists to play them back in any order you want. As you use the Media Server, its unique Personal Media Assistant learns your music preferences for each theme and applies those preferences to its automated song selection.

With the Media Server connected to the Internet, you can even enjoy Internet radio throughout your home. The SMS3 also stores and organizes digital photos, which you can show on your TV individually or as slide shows.
