Different Media Servers Pros & Cons

I just wanted to get some perspective on the different media servers that are available for Netlinx control, Available Features, Media Formats, Module Interfaces, Storage Upgrade options and Considerations, and hurdles overcome on the way to implementation, as we all know that demo files are not necessarily a finished product.


Over the past year I have successfully installed:

1 Escient Fireball - Single zone (5 TPS - 2xG3 3xG4 no DMS interface)
- no Storage upgrade
-MP3 dump and extract over network

1 Escient Fireball with Mp-100 2nd Zone Player (6 TPS - 2xG3, 4xG4 no DMS interface)
- no Storage upgrade
- MP3 dump and extract over network

1 Audio Request Fusion Pro- Single Zone(3 TPS - 3xG3 and 10 DMS)
- no Storage upgrade
- MP3 dump and extract over network

1 MAX-MMS04S with 1 AVM and 1 AOM(1TP - 1xG4 and 8 DMS)
- no Storage upgrade
- I had to make a DMS interface
- MP3 dump and extract over network

**Also 2 Arrakis DC6 players but they kept crashing and falling offline so it is a product we are not integrating anymore.**

pending installs over the next month:
1 MAX-MMS04S with 2 AVM and 1 AOM(2TP - 2xG4 and 11 DMS)
1 MAX-MMS01S with 1 AOM(2TP - 1xG3, 1xG4 and 11 DMS)

I would appreciate any information on axonix MediaMax, or other brands.

Cheers,
Paul

    For the money the Audio Request F series is the best!
    The Fireball doesn't have queing or display album artwork to name a few missing features and the MAX is tooo expensive.
