The Hermstedt HiFiDelio Pro is a feature-packed marvel, combining a high quality CD recorder, a 160GB hard disk recorder and wifi or wired network connectivity, with the software to enable streaming and playback of media from any available computer on the connected network, Internet radio or custom compilations of your own composing. It acts as a network hub, pulling together the resources of up to four CAT5 networked sources, WiFi networked devices and its own internal & connected storage.
Such features are implemented with attention to detail and the HiFiDelio Pro's audiophile ambitions are met thanks to high-grade components (including a toroidal transformer and superior DACs - Digital to Analogue Converters - and ultra-quiet Samsung hard drive).
At last, a truly useful convergence product, bringing together the best in computer-convenience and connectivity, with hifi-audio CD and hard disk replay - and all in a sleekly understated, German-engineered, metal case.
