audio library stored on hard disk with six players and one
recorder in a compact rack mount cabinet... that is the Arrakis
Digilink hard disk audio jukebox.
is the ideal audio source for whole house audio systems.
It is a professional product using the most reliable components
available. As an example, to protect your audio library,
the DC6 uses only SCSI hard drives and not inexpensive consumer
quality IDE drives for audio storage. Even the CDROM drive
is a professional quality SCSI drive for long life.
reliable, feature laden, and built by the originator of hard
disk audio storage in the CEDIA market, the DC6 is the perfect
choice for whole house audio systems.
Each of the six players can play the same song, a different song, or the same
song at different points in the song, at the same time. Each player even has
BOTH an analog and digital output to support all types of installations.
Ways to Record...
The DC6 can record audio onto its hard drive in four different ways. The first
is to just drop a CD into the built-in CDROM drive. Close the drawer and the
recording is automatic. The second way to record is to connect the DC6 to a
PC with a USB cable. Simply send a song from the PC to the DC6 over the USB
connection. The third way is to record audio directly into the DC6 from the
rear audio record input. The fourth way is to let Arrakis supply the DC6 to
you with a prerecorded audio library preinstalled.
Leading Control Systems
The DC6 is not a stand alone audio jukebox. It is designed to be integrated
into a whole house control system.
control systems are Crestron, AMX, Xantech, Niles, Elan, Escient,
Windows PCs, and more.
DC6 has eight RS232 serial control ports on the back of the cabinet.
Each of the eight control ports can control any one or all of the
six players. Third party adapters can convert the serial control
port to an ethernet port for network control. An infrared (IR)
adapter can convert IR commands to serial commands.
The DC6 has a database of over 500,000 songs built right into it to recognize
a CD as it is being recorded. If the CD can't be found in the database, the
DC6 will dial out over a phone line to an internet database.
