Marantz Debuts NA7004 Network Audio Player

Love it or hate it but sooner or later our entire universe is going to be networked. Our music will cease to live on shiny silver discs and our vinyl collections -well, let's just say the future doesn't look bright. While our Orwellian future may be a little ways off that isn't stopping AV giants like Marantz from getting a head start with their NA7004 network audio player.

Marantz America, a provider of home entertainment solutions, has introduced its NA7004 Network Audio Player (SRP: $799). An all-in-one music source component, the NA7004 serves as a digital-to-analog converter for people with large collections of downloaded high-resolution music on their computers or other external storage devices who want to listen through their home audio systems. The company claims that the NA7004's music reproduction capabilities outperform that of conventional CD players, revealing sound that is often lost in file transfer from downloaded music collections, ripped CDs and more.
