Sonic Studio, LLC, in conjunction with their representative VRS Audio Solutions, provided the first public showing of their new ultra-fidelity music server, Amarra. Taking place at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in the mile high city of Denver, VRS staged demonstrations of the newest member of the growing media server class in their demo room.
Based on Sonic Studio's legendary line of professional linear PCM products, Amarra is an integrated software and hardware alloy that leverages Sonic Studio's storied history in pro audio with the industry's longest running digital audio workstation. Amarra's hardware is drawn from the exclusive FireWire-attached, Series 300 line of DSP I/O Processors while the software derives from soundBlade, Sonic Studio's high end production application.
Unlike prior audio server products, Amarra runs on the stable, secure and friendly Macintosh operating system. To ease user interaction, Amarra also coordinates with iTunes, the industry standard for asset acquisition, storage and playback. Able to play uncompressed audio files up to 192 kHz, Amarra is architected to accommodate future enhancements as technology and the server market advances.
Amarra is a whole new concept in music servers. The same technology that produces the master files used by record labels large and small for music distribution on Compact Disc, DVD-Audio and for download, is also used to create a music server that handily bests all others in fidelity, the foundation of any audiophile product. Amarra provides the highest quality playback, coupled with the convenience of iTunes, the world's most popular music delivery system. Soon to be available through select dealers, more information about Amarra is available at http://www.amarraaudio.com/
