The Silenzio has no flaws, quirks, or unnatural pauses - EVER. It just works exactly the way you wish a music server should work. Both my Silenzios operate off the one NAS which saves money on the second purchase.

Ivan may have a few lightly used music servers for sale if Emile can configure the NAS to feed ALL the systems that Ivan has in the Cape.:D

I wish I had a third system so I could buy another Silenzio. "E" is the BEST.:yes:

It is a great component. It's my source 75% of the time. Can access all my hi-res and red book music instantly with the JRiver app on my iPhone. The storage E sets up is scalable as your collection grows and is hot-swappable so your music is safe. I recommend it.

I just ordered mine.

Plus a few other things.

Thanks Ivan...

E, what is your recommendation for connectivity to a MCD500 (which does not have a USB port)?

Glad I got my training in before E starts building for this wave of demand. Congrats to all the new and future Silenzio owners!

Audio by E is proud to present the SilenZio AE-S2.5 high performance media server.

The SilenZio is the finest example of what a true media server can accomplish: ripping CDs, DVDs, and BDs (Blu-Ray Disc), playing back virtually any media in true bit perfection, and managing your entire database, all controlled from your iOS or Android device.

Completely passive, the SilenZio generates minimal heat and zero noise during normal use and playback. Zero fans. Zero spinning Hard Disk Drives (HDDs). The internal BD-R, which is your source for ripping, makes noise only during your ripping process.

SilenZio is the culmination of articulate planning, immaculate design, professional assembly, effective training, and utilization of the finest components available. From its 100% aluminum chassis to the specifically chosen, system-tuned low-latency RAM to the highest performing solid state drive in the world, the SilenZio AE-2 wants for nothing but to be used in the most resolving of HiFi and Home Theater systems.

Getting the most from your SilenZio is within your reach, even for users who consider themselves novices. Included with each SilenZio system is a comprehensive, in-depth, easy-to-understand and, most importantly, easy-to learn one-on-one remote training and configuration session (up to the first 2 hours) to learn how to utilize the system in generating the finest digital audio and video reproduction possible within your HiFi or Home Theater rig. In other words, Audio by E not only “talks the talk” but “walks the walk.” Where other so-called media/music server companies want to sell you a box and point you to an online forum – leaving you to fend for yourself, Audio by E takes it to the next level, going above and beyond for clients. We’re not successful unless you’re successful in using your SilenZio.

The time to upgrade your rig is now. The time to get off spinning media is yesterday! SilenZio users typically retire the physical spinning media once ripped because when they A/B the SilenZio versus their expensive transports: 1) the SilenZio sounds better, or 2) they are unable to tell the difference. This is the ultimate test of a media server, and the SilenZio does not disappoint!

Each SilenZio comes with:
- (1) Black or Silver media server (pictured)
- (1) Power Adapter/brick
- (1) Basic power cable
- (1) Windows 7 Professional DVD + Product Key
- Miscellaneous literature of components within the system
- (1) Remote training and configuration session, up to 2 hours

SilenZio Specs:
- 4th Generation Intel (Haswell) low-wattage CPU
- 16GB 1600MHz, low-latency RAM
- 128GB SSD
- A/G WiFi built-in (external antennae)
- Z97-based Motherboard
- 100% Aluminum chassis, passively cooled
- 150W PicoPSU
- BD-Recorder, slot-load

SilenZio Connectivity:
- 1x Gigabit Ethernet
- 1x WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band (2.4/5GHz)
- 2x USB 2.0
- 4x USB 3.0
- 1x DVI (up to 1920x1200 @ 60Hz)
- 1x HDMI (up to 4096x2304 @ 24hz, 1080p @ 60Hz)
- 1x DisplayPort (up to 4096x2304 @ 24hz, 1080p @ 60Hz)
- 2x USB 2.0 (front, right of chassis)

Software included and tuned specifically for optimal fidelity on the SilenZio:
- JRiver Media Center 20
- Exact Audio Copy

Dimensions of SilenZio:
- 435mm (W) x 325mm (D) x 60mm (H)
- 17.13" (W) x 12.8" (D) x 2.36" (H)

*Features and pricing subject to change as the market or client demands.

**AE-S2.5 is the current version of Silenzio. I will update this original post with any new information/features.
