With media streaming devices (Sonos & Slim Devices) making inroads into the home, it is time for Illustrate to make the transition from software to software & hardware. The first foray is RipNAS.

RipNAS combines and perfects Audio CD ripping, Network Attached Storage and Media Streaming in one easy to use small (high 'partner acceptance factor') box. Audio CDs are ripped and stored losslessly and securely through multi-drive mirroring [multi-HDD models only]. Audio files are shared for streaming through the network to a multitude of Network audio players available. Windows Home Server is the OS of choice, offering complete home network backup for all family Windows PCs.
