We've teamed up with Goodwin's High End to create this beautiful music server featuring computer audiophile. Goodwin's High End is considered to be the top US high-end audio specialist. For over 30 years, their attention to detail and knowledge of music reproduction and room acoustics have been brought to bear on systems for their discerning clientele all across the US.
Combine the Goodwin's High End audio expertise with our extensive knowledge of the perfect quiet PC, and together you get a powerful yet quiet music server, that produces flawless, high-definition audio playback. This music server is a must for any audiophile looking for the best sound quality available, without the distraction of computer noise.
Our Goodwin's High End Digital Music Server is compatible with the ASUS ThunderboltEX II Expansion Card, to add Thunderbolt II functionality for extreme throughput connectivity at 10Gb/s (as a custom option).
Exclusive Audiophile Music Server
In addition to the fanless server itself, more components need to be added in order to make this into a true music server. Goodwin's High End has defaulted this music server with the best in USB and SATA noise filtration ensuring the best possible sound.
The SOtM tX-USB is an audiophile USB audio card like no other. The computer audiophile audio card has a unique design incorporating a power line noise filter. It then has individual ultra low noise regulators to power the usb devices attached, the on board ultra low jitter clock, and the on broad PCI host controller. You can also use the audio card's power connector (4 pin Molex) to supply it with your own linear or battery power supply for an additional boot in performance. The audiophile audio card also has a convenient switch to turn off the power on the USB cable all together. It simply does not get any better than this!
The SOtM In-Line SATA Power Noise Filter is a must have computer audiophile product. This device has a unique design incorporating individual 12V, 5V, and 3,3V RF noise filters along with ripple noise filters. The sata data transmission is not altered. We recommend these for use on spinning drives and on solid state drives.
We recommend having Goodwin's High End configure your music server. Their testing will make sure that everything is properly set up in terms of software configuration so the music server will output the best quality digital signal possible. You can also pick up a lot of great audio products for your audio system from them. Aside from a high end outboard DAC (digital to analog converter), which will interface well with the output of the music server, they also have a wide variety of products including speakers, room treatments, turntables, and more!
