Listen to all your music through one system with this package, which combines the flexible Cocktail Audio X10 media server with the powerful Q Acoustics Q2020i speakers.1 x COCKTAIL AUDIO X10 MEDIA PLAYER AND SERVER
The Cocktail Audio X10 has the same compact size as an ordinary mini system, but offers so much more. It can give you instant access to your entire CD collection and thousands of Internet radio stations, plus access your network to playback music stored on devices such as your computer.
You can choose to have it with no hard drive for use as a media client, or with hard drive options of up to an incredible 2 terabytes, it can easily store your entire CD collection (the X10 can store up to an amazing 30,000 CDs*)
Just load a CD via the high speed, front loading CD drive, and rip it to the hard drive. Simple as that. You can then easily search by artist, album or genre via the 3.5" colour LCD display. The X-10 can record in a variety of formats, too (such as WAV, MP3, WMA and FLAC).
Connect the Cocktail Audio X-10 to the internet and you will have access to a ready CD database for easy labelling when ripping your CDs. You can also access thousands of internet radio stations, and even record your favourite internet radio programme to the hard drive.
Not only that, but connect it to your network and the Cocktail Audio X10 acts as a music server for easy, instant streaming of your music stored on other devices such as PC, laptop or network attached storage (NAS) device. And it works with Sonos systems, too. You can do all this wirelessly, with the optional wireless adaptor
(see the accessories tab above). Or you can connect a turntable, cassette player or minidisc to the X10's line-in socket and record your old media to the hard drive - an easy, convenient solution to archiving your vinyl and cassettes.
Thanks to it's integral 2 x 30 watt amplifier, you can hook it straight into your choice of speakers. Alternatively, you can connect it into your exisiting hifi system via the stereo line out, or into a DAC and amp via the optical output.
For a compact, convenient media player and server with huge flexibility to fit into any system, it's hard to beat the Cocktail Audio X10.
*Number of CDs depends on the size of the hard drive and the ripping format - see the "Extra" section of the Specifications tab above for more information.1 x Q ACOUSTICS 2020i SPEAKERS (PAIR)
Based on the award winning 2020 speakers, the Q-Acoustics 2020is (the i stands for improved) are medium sized bookshelf/standmount speakers which deliver a full bass and clean top end making them a very attractive choice. The flexible 2020is are comfortable with any music genre and suitable for use with most amplifiers, in both hifi and home cinema set-ups.
Their two way, bass-reflex configuration allows the 2020is to deliver a sound which is both impressively detailed and weighty. This is largely due to the advanced driver technology. Improvements over the 2020 speakers include a new multi-layer cone tweeter with 'super-decoupling' from the speaker's baffle. There's also a new carbon fibre and ceramic-coated paper woofer, resulting in incredibly low levels of distortion for a smooth, open sound. The revised crossover ensures a spacious, detailed soundstage, with a clean top-end and impressive bass performance.
They also feature an innovative connection system. Instead of terminals protruding from the rear of the speaker in the conventional manner, the 2020is' terminals are located in a recessed panel on the bottom of the speaker. This means the speakers can be mounted flat up to a wall using the separately available wall bracket
which also gives tilt and turn movement (see accessories tab above).
Available in a choice of striking finishes, the Q-Acoustics 2020i speakers will look and sound exceptional as part of your home cinema or hifi system.Back to Top
