The (silent) Morpheus Server was launched to marry with the Morpheus music centre. Before SSDs became affordable, Sonneteer used reverse back to back hard drive mounting to achieve near silent operational performance. Our CD players also got an upgrade and another award.
Here’s an extract from the Press release
Named the Morpheus Music Server, joins the Morpheus Music Centre and hand made in the UK by Sonneteer, the British luxury music systems brand. Showing at Las Vegas CES (Consumer Electronics Show) this January the Sonneteer Morpheus Music Server comes hot on the heels of Sonneteer announcing that their entire range will be available to order in a range of colours. This will apply to all Sonneteer products too. Sonneteer’s Haider Bahrani also said that,” if a customer has a particular request then we are happy to spend some time with them to fully meet their needs.”
The Morpheus Music Server rips, stores and sits quietly in the corner whilst all the Morpheus Music centres in the home pull the music to play in the particular room which they reside. So in plane terms, the user can slip their CD through the slot on the front and go make a cup of tea. The Morpheus Server, in the mean time, will be copying the contents of the CD to its hard drive storage (all three terra bites of it), cataloguing it with Album name, Artist, song titles etc. and making it ready for the Morpheus Music Centres to see. All one needs to do, while still sipping the cup of tea, is to select the music on the Music Centre and press play, as one would with any other hi-fi. If you have more than one Morpheus in the house then they too can feed off the server for music.
Sonneteer, in developing the new Server have adopted all techniques known and developed a few of their own to make sure the unit is as quiet as can be and as easy to use, in tandem with the Morpheus Music Centre, as is possible. The Morpheus Server also has a number of neat tricks under its sleeve. To make up its three terra bites , for example, it employs two drives and they are set up, out of the box, the mirror each other. So should one of them fail at any time, the other will have the users music stored safe and sound.
And to explain a bit about the design here is an extract from the other founder and our Technical Director Remo Casadei:
