Olive’s New Flagship Music Server

San Francisco–based music-server expert Olive Media has just begun delivering its new flagship, the 06HD. While Olive has been a respected name in the industry since its founding in 2005, this remarkable server moves the brand toward the top of the heap. It supports studio-quality playback of audio tracks (250 times that of CDs) with dual Burr-Brown 24-bit/192-kHz DACs, one for each the right and left channels. The 06HD also features a dedicated DAC and amp for the headphone output, in addition to digital and analog audio outputs mounted in the back plate. A massive 2-terabyte internal hard drive allows storage of up to 20,000 high-definition tracks or about 6,000 CD-quality albums, which users can upload directly through the disc port, or by way of an Ethernet network or USB import. The 10.1-inch touchscreen display offers extremely intuitive library navigation and, with an HDMI output, the 06HD allows users to view the server’s interface on their TV screen. $5,000 seems like a small price to pay for this level of functionality and performance.
