Meridian Audio has just announced their new Media Drive 600. The Media Drive 600 is a dedicated system storage product for use as a modular element in a new system or to increase storage capacity of an existing Meridian Sooloos Digital Media System.
The Media Drive 600 can accommodate hard disk drives configured as RAID 1 and can be connected to the Sooloos extranet for access to it remotely for support and diagnostics services.
The Media Drive 600 incorporates a switch-mode power supply and efficient, automatically regulated cooling system to help ensure increase reliability in rack-mount applications.
Through its DHCP-enabled network connection Media Drive 600 connects easily to a host network allowing easy integration with the rest of a Meridian Sooloos system, and integrated control from any of the Meridian Sooloos control devices or Apps.
The Media Drive 600 has a simple front panel interface with six LEDs offering feedback on system status. The front-loading drive bays also ensure that any necessary service can be carried out without the requirement to access the rear of the rack or to remove the Media Drive 600.
