The SOtM sMS-200 mini network player is in effect a renderer much like a music server but without the auto-rip facility and the music does not sit on board as is the case with most music servers. This is the most cost effective way to achieve high-end music playback with the facility of browsing your music library on a iPad or Tablet, or smart phone.
sMS-200 is a new generation of mini network player with built in ‘Media Player Board’ developed by our own technology.
