The Arcam FMJ MS250 Music Server is a world class music replay and storage device. An audiophile quality stereo CD player, with a built-in 400GB hard drive, it can store some 640 uncompressed CDs or up to 4800 CDs (about 80,000 tunes) in compressed audio formats. It is extremely powerful, supports 4 separate audio zones and lets you make compilations of your own music on to CD-R.
Your music collection will be at your fingertips and searchable via artist, genre, album or even track name. The Arcam FMJ MS 250 allows you to have your own collection combined with other music on your Network in a product delivering a level of sound quality that truly brings your music to life, as would be expected of any Arcam FMJ product.
The Arcam MS-250 server provides for either simple IR remote control of four zones or, for more complex installations, the zones can be computer controlled via RS232 or network connection. In addition to music stored on the MS250’s hard drive, the unit can play music from other sources connected to the same computer network. This means that tracks stored on PCs or Apple Macs around the house can be played as if they were on the MS250 itself, without copying them from one unit to another. In addition, a large number of internet radio stations can be received as well as the latest album information via the internet.
To achieve the level of sound quality to meet Arcam’s audiophile standards has meant designing a sophisticated audio board that would use state-of-the-art techniques as well as using the very best audiophile quality components throughout. Particular attention has been paid to the power supply for the digital and analogue circuits that feed the high precision digital-to analogue converters using similar design principles to those seen in Arcam’s high-end CD players. Arcam has designed a sophisticated digital-to-analogue converter system with four separate zone outputs and an analogue-to-digital converter for two analogue inputs.
