ReQuest AudioReQuest Media Server
AudioReQuest units rip CD's to the hard drive in around 3 minutes. The unit I saw could hold around 500 CDs in .wav format. The unit defaults to auto-ripping any inserted CD to MP3, though that can be changed by the user. Up to four zones can be controlled independently one of which can utilize the Crestron unit showcased. The others use wall-mounted displays.
