The DMS-500 Digital Music Streamer is a groundbreaking design that not only meets the Hi-Fidelity demands of today, but also the future.

Connecting the DMS-500 to your wired or wireless home network opens up a new world of musical enjoyment like never before. Easily stream any files from any MAC or PC computer(s), NAS drives, and Internet Music Services. To go one step further, directly connecting USB hard drives, thumb drives, or SD Cards allows for "computer-less" playback of digital music.
Whether network or computer-less, the DMS-500 will transform your digital files effortlessly into beautiful analog rich music at a level you've come to expect from Cary Audio's long history of renowned digital products.
