DIGITAL MEDIA SERVERS

Sonos Digital Music System

A digital media server is like a Media Center PC that doesn't have all that PC stuff in it. The functionality is essentially the same; you use the server to store and access digital audio files, and then to play those files over your home audio/video system—or, in some cases, to multiple systems in multiple rooms.


My favorite digital media server is an odd little bird from Sonos. It's odd in that it's more like a digital media hub (which I'll talk about in a few pages); it doesn't store any media files but instead streams audio files from your desktop PC. But then it feeds music to multiple rooms, just like a good little whole-house audio system. As I said, a tad unusual, but unusually effective.
