This product has been discontinued and is no longer available to buy.
The Cocktail Audio X30 is a powerful hifi separate which can stream and rip audio, play CDs and tune to FM and internet radio. It can give you instant access to thousands of CDs and Internet radio stations, and can 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 multiple hard drive options, it can easily store your entire CD collection.

Just load a CD via the high speed, front loading CD drive, and rip it to the hard drive. Then you can easily search by artist, album or genre via the 5" colour LCD display. The X-30 can record in a variety of formats, too (such as WAV, MP3, WMA and FLAC). 

Connect the Cocktail Audio X-30 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. 

Not only that, but connect it to your network and the Cocktail Audio X30 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). Or you can connect a turntable, cassette player or minidisc to the X30'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 50 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 digital outputs. The X30 can be controlled with the included remote, via your computer or with apps available for Apple and Android devices.

For a powerful and convenient media player and server with huge flexibility to fit into any system, it's hard to beat the Cocktail Audio X30.

"Capacious storage options; flexibility; musically engaging" "There are few models to rival the Cocktail Audio X30 in terms of flexibility at the price. There are cheaper and less-capacious alternatives to be found [but none] as versatile as the X30."
