Expanded Control Options
Meridian Sooloos can now be controlled from Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari on Macintosh, Windows, and Linux platforms, so that any computer - even new Linux-based Netbooks - can become a control point for Meridian Sooloos. The dedicated Control PC and Control Mac programs offer the same control benefits as web browsers, with the addition of full CD importing, file importing, file exporting, and manual backup from any Macintosh or Windows computer on the network.

Easy and Simple Integration of Portable Listening
Meridian Sooloos imports your music in full-quality, lossless form for listening at home. Then it also generates MP3s of the files for portable use, so you don't have to import and maintain two libraries. With the new Meridian Sooloos virtual file structure, any computer on the network will automatically access Meridian Sooloos as a shared library after installing Control PC or Control Mac. The result is seamless and simple transfer of music to iPhones, iPods, and other portable MP3 players, with no special setup requirements.

High Resolution Audio and New Format Support
Meridian Sooloos supports the import of FLAC, WAV, MP3, AAC, and Apple Lossless files, at any word length and sample rate up to 24-bit, 96 kHz. With Control PC and Control Mac, files located on your computer are easily imported and identified, acquiring the metadata with automated tools.

Improved Classical Music Management
Meridian Sooloos manages your library through a simple, elegant tool called Focus. Classical music presents unique issues to Focus - for example that four tracks out of twelve on a CD may represent the four movements of one composition. When you search, you want to search for any recording of this composition, not the individual tracks that make up the work. Meridian Sooloos now embraces this as well as other challenging aspects of browsing Classical Music.

Groundbreaking Interface Continues to Evolve
One of the most innovative aspects of the Meridian Sooloos interface is the ability to sort a wide array of options including but not limited to genre, title, artist, or producer - any of the metadata the system holds can be used to find exactly what you want. With the latest updates, this groundbreaking interface continues to grow. And after three years spent working closely with our customers, Sooloos 2.0 boasts an array of innovative improvements that make your digital music library even more accessible and enjoyable, further enhancing Sooloos' position as an industry leader.

The Meridian Sooloos media-management system brings convenience and control to your entire digital music library, providing easy access and reliable storage from a central location. Your music can be shared by everyone in the home and played in any room. You can even enjoy music from your home system when on holiday or a business trip with remote streaming.

The MSRP for the suggested hardware, Control 10 and Twinstore is $8,250. Existing customers receive the software update direct from Meridian at no charge.
