The Cocktail Audio Pro X100 merges CD ripping, Network Attached Storage (NAS) and multimedia streaming within an open platform.
Evolving from the revolution
The current cocktail audio models have been good but lack that touch of satisfying the astute music lover in an all-round style. We have stripped ineffective elements to make room for the essential features based on the current trend.
The X100 stores thousands of CDs in lossless FLAC, retrieves the album art and metadata automatically without the need for background conversion. X100 supports 32 bit/384 KHz HD audio and DSD music player with flawless audio output through USB interface, streaming services, numerous internet radio services and much more.
The ripping mechanism reads each track several times (at least twice) compares and ensures accuracy. The algorithm checks the data before incorporating the latest cloud based technology with fingerprinting for optimal CD tagging and album cover art retrieval.
No background conversion
The X100 encodes (rips) and converts simultaneously. Thus the need for a prolonged background conversion is irrelevant. Unlike the other models or most rippers, background conversion can halt the performance of the device and even corrupt the entire database if a single file is erroneous.
The processor in the Cocktail Audio Pro X100 quickly converts the songs without any difficulty. An 80 minute classical CD would be done in less than 7 minutes - with auto cover art fetch and CD information embedded.
The database structure and directories on the Cocktail Audio Pro X100, can be edited, deleted, moved & tagged from any compatible program. This gives the user full control on how the media is ‘exhibited’.
The Cocktail Audio Pro X100 is able to abort ripping amidst session with a single torch or click and reload. The disc drive has an enhanced optical lens and rips faster. With the range of supported protocols, it is easier to configure the X100 with many devices.
The X100 can be networked in various locations at your home via protocols like UPnP / DLNA / Airplay. There are Apps on the Cocktail Audio Pro X100 to easily configure devices like Sonos, wireless solution devices and so forth.
The Cocktail Audio Pro X100 can be a ‘client’ or a ‘server’ on a network. The X100 connects through a Gigabit (10/100/1000 Mbps) via an Ethernet cable.
Power efficient fan less Design
Cocktail Audio Pro X100 is an exceptional and considerably more powerful all-rounded multimedia entertainment centre: for ripping, storing and great for playing back all your media from one device via a user-friendly web interface.
The usual level of noise that emanates from many media players is unwanted. We have built the X100 without the whirring fans and masked the crunching hard disks noises for users’ that intend to run the X100 around the clock as a server.
The X100 has integrated heat-sinks for passive cooling that minimises noises and heat. Power consumption is vital: the X100 incorporates ‘low’ power parts which generate less heat and thus require less cooling. The X100 remains quiet during operation and blends in with any living space.
Network Attached Storage
Building a centralised storage for your media on the X100 is more stable than any of the other Cocktail Audio models. The X100 allows you to share media files between several devices such as TV, computers, wireless speakers, high-end audio devices and much more.
The added benefit is that many servers can be setup to mirror media files and also stream other media types like photos and video. The X100 Server can be recognised from any platforms such as Windows, Apple , Linux or Android devices.
The Cocktail Audio Pro (X100) enables users' to stream video, audio & images. There is no limit to how many viewers can stream and the device is more stable & features many more preferences. The metadata service is privately supported, updated & catered for by our technical team. We also support Picard (program to submit cd metadata); therefore users can easily submit CD information / metadata. Picard’s service will update our metadata service too.
Having a private metadata service means less reliant of inaccurate CD metadata, as well as the need to tag or retag albums unnecessarily. Users' can contact us on metadata issues - unlike the FreeDB service used by the other Cocktail Audio models (X10-X40).
Customised web Interface
What makes our newest web interface better is the capability to multitask. The web interface doesn’t lock up during ripping or require verification between ripped folders (songs) or any simulated SQL file structure (Music DB).
The web interfaces allow users’ to control and interact with the Cocktail Audio Pro X100 through a web browser. The X100‘s web interface enables the users’ to add and remove features which makes it ideal for users' that might wish to customise in accordance with their controllers.
The web interface can be used as a remote control, library management, visual feedback, app & device manager and much more. The web interface is intuitive, light and quick to load. Any device with a web browser can access the web interface, such as a smart phone, tablet, notebook, computer etc.
The media on the Cocktail Audio Pro X100 can be safely backed up without any intricacies. Simply mount your external drive, format it & backup. The next backup will add the newer files as well as any added changes.
USB 2/3 Audio interface
The added interface of USB 3 provides realistic and a faster transfer rates of around 4.8 Gbits/s with a full duplex data rate. The support for USB audio interface over TOSLINK or Coax SPDIF DAC means: USB DACs maintains a two-way communication and sends supported resolutions to the Cocktail Audio Pro X100. Other audio interfaces do not report information about the driven devices. An asynchronous USB DAC can control the data flow from the driving device whilst other DACs might require complex circuitry to minimise jitters.
The Squeezebox Server is customisable and has a great community supported by Cocktail Audio too. Have control of your music with various music services, international radio services and much more. Squeeze network is an online service that makes it easy to access/configure the Internet radio stations and music services. There are over 50 thousand plus world internet radios, podcasts & multiple streaming services such as BBC iplayer/radio, Spotify, Deezer, Qobuz, TuneIn, Live365 etc
HDD/SSD: 500 – 8TB+
The Cocktail Audio Pro X100 supports up to 8TB - 3.5", 2.5" SATA HDDs (Hard Disk Drives) and also has a SSD (Solid State Drive) which is quicker, more reliable and generally safer for data storage so your music collection will be safer and faster to access.
