HD music server maker Olive has launched a new product with a price tag that will undoubtedly shock some potential buyers. Dubbed the O6HD, Olive calls device an audiophile’s dream and has placed on it a $4,999 price tag, twice as much as Olive’s previous top-level server, the O4HD.
The O6HD’s 2TB storage can hold music from 6,000 CDs uncompressed or up to 20,000 HD songs, with full album art and tags. You can navigate all those tunes with the built-in 10.1″ touch screen or on your iPad or iPhone via Olive’s iOS app. In addition, the server includes wireless-N networking and a Gigabit Ethernet port to pull music to the device over the network. It also has one HDMI port, one USB port, and an infrared receiver input.
The O6HD packs a state of the art DAC and dedicated power supply to keep your music sounding pristine, and it’s equipped to handle HD music, which reportedly has 250 times the resolution of a regular old CD. The unit comes preloaded with 12 HD tracks so you can hear just how lousy your CDs actually sound.
The Olive O6HD 2TB Command Center is available for preorder now.
