The Discovery Music Server solves one of the biggest hurdles in computer audio: the computer. And it offers the power of a full music server without the need for a laptop or desktop computer. Enjoy local and streaming music, rich multi-dimensional metadata and multi-room audio—with support for multiple synchronized zones—all with the Roon® Essentials interface that anyone can master in a few minutes.
One component, infinite sound.
Adding the Discovery Series DS-S101-G Music Server to an existing system is simple. Connect the Discovery to the internet and one of the outputs to the upcoming ELAC Integrated Amplifier or your existing system.
Adding your personal music collection is a snap. Connect either a hard drive to the rear mounted USB port or point the Discovery to your NAS (Networked Attached Storage) device and the Discovery will take care of the rest, organizing and gathering feature rich meta-data for your entire music collection.
Expanding your Discovery system to other rooms is easy. Whether you want the full functionality of an integrated amplifier or a simple wireless speaker in the kids’ room, the Discovery eco-system is ready to grow when you are.
* iOS (64-bit Devices), Android, Windows (7, 8, and 10) and Apple OSX
It’s really very simple
The Discovery Music Server lets users open their personal music vault from another computer, Apple iPad** or Android tablet. Whether your choice is a full ELAC system, powered by an ELAC integrated amplifier and running an ELAC loudspeaker system, or a pair of ear buds, you can listen in one room or around the house with other Discovery-compatible products.
A wave of music
Discovery delivers music based on relationships between performers and composers, starting from the tracks you choose. TIDAL* delivers no-compromise music streaming, with millions of tracks in lossless, audiophile quality—a bigger music landscape than ever before.
* Separate Tidal Subscription required
Your music, as you like it
Between users and across devices, you can select from downloads, ripped CDs and streaming services. Your collection is supported by a rich library of images and information—an archive of material that adds depth, knowledge and excitement to your listening.
The artists and engineers who recorded your music took great care creating it. It’s no secret that Discovery takes the same care playing it back.
