The black X50 Digital Music Server from cocktailaudio offers a USB Audio Class 2.0 output with shielded housing to provide transparent sound signal. Equipped with various digital outputs like two coaxial output, optical output, AES/EBU, I²S output (HDMI, RJ45) including word clock, the X50 targets audiophiles who want to stream their music across multiple devices. The versatile outputs also allow the X50 to be combined with a high-performance digital-to-analog converter. For high speed data transferring and networking, the X50 is equipped with two USB 3.0 ports and one Gigafast Ethernet.

The X50 has a 7" TFT LCD built on the front panel for intuitive GUI. The screen is big enough to use while remote controlling the X50. Using a CD metadata server to deliver metadata and cover art for 20 million CDs, the X50 can create a music database for you via its precise CD Ripping technology. The X50 has the function to merge multi-album into one album folder. For example, if you have a multi-album composed of CD1, CD2, CD3, and CD4, you can merge the four CDs into one folder (album).

You can connect the X50 to your network to stream music to and from other devices, listen to cloud-based music services, and control remotely using mobile devices. Simply connect the X50 to your TV to view bigger GUI or a slideshow of photos while listening to your tracks via HDMI connector. The X50 is based on whole CNC-cutting aluminum casing with 12mm front cover and 8mm chassis. And its die-cast aluminum feet, including full aluminum chassis, provide rigidity along with additional resistance from external vibrations.
