Zara Premium Music Ripping Server-ctnd
...be seen, not heard...
When you start using the Zara Premium it is all very simple; connect the unit to a power
source and then to your network. No computer is required: you can view and control the
Zara via any VGA-capable display (including most modern TVs). If you do have a
computer you can install the Zara Premium Desktop Client on any computer on the same
network.
When it comes to ripping it couldn’t be any easier, insert the audio disc into the slot loader
and the Zara Premium will handle the rest. Effortlessly the Zara will extract the audio
tracks, and obtain and assign metadata – all before converting and storing them, while
simultaneously providing you with live feedback of the process. At the end of the process
the disc will eject and the unit will wait for another disc or any other task you may wish to
give it.
Zara Premium also allows you to rip discs without an internet connection, as it has its own
internal FreeDB meta data – a more basic version of the online AMG database. Next time
the server is online, you can run its Bulk CD look-up tool – this will scan all your titles, and
update the meta data for all rips - fully populating all data and artwork!
You have multiple options for playback: you can connect to any uPNP device or to an external DAC / amplifier, which is controlled
via the intuitive interface present on the unit and the Desktop Client, or iPad / iPhone appns. Once the disc is ripped or music from
another source is indexed, then they are made available to the user at the click of a button.
Although the Zara Premium provides full uPNP / DLNA services, it also offers much more too. It not only can be 'seen' as a
source of music files - it can also control the playback of music files locally (via S/PDIF or USB DAC), or to remote devices found
on the network. If you are a Linn user, you can also benefit from the unique Linn control point service, whereby the Zara Premium
is controlled by Linn applications to push music to the Linn players.
Although the Zara Premium was developed to be an extremely user friendly device with simplicity as a key element of the
experience, it does boast impressive technology behind the product with a state of the art combination of hardware and software.
From a hardware perspective you have a low powered system (Eco-conscious) that takes advantage of the newest Intel chips
which are housed in an elegant aluminium chassis that ensures fan-less near silent operation whilst offering an incredibly robust
build with a timeless design.
From a software perspective the Zara Premium has been developed over the course of 9 years and represents the accumulation of
all the services an audiophile could possibly require from a modern day ‘Audio Server’.

factory to exacting standards.
The Zaram will fit perfectly with any high end audio / visual
system.
The Zaram processor unit incorporates a very powerful Intel CPU to ensure that video files can be rapidly trans-coded from
native DVD or BluRay formats to formats that can be enjoyed on many of today's DNLA TVs etc. Players that are capable to
render the original uncompressed formats are also supported.
The Zaram-X9 is a mass storage unit which is located below or to the side of the Zaram. The internal storage is protected
against disk failure and has a capacity of approx 9000GB (9TB). A single data cable connects the Zaram to the Zaram-X9.
Up to five Zaram-X9s can be connected to the Zaram processor.
The Zaram is simple to setup just plug in the power and network cables and once the Zaram is ready you can begin ripping.
AUDIO
Insert your chosen music CD* into the Zaram slot loader and all the track information / album art you could wish for is quickly
retrieved from our premium metadata providers
The digital uncompressed music files are copied in their highest quality format (FLAC)
The music files are then optionally copied and down converted to a high quality MP3 format ready for portable playback devices
(original FLAC files are still stored).

Simply insert your DVD* or BluRay* disc, and the Zaram will extract the data to it's storage unit, along with cover art, and film

meta data, ie actors / director etc.
Then the video files are available for playback (ISO), or can optionally be trans-coded to suitable file formats to suit your
playback device - ie MP4, for enjoyment on DLNA TVs, Apple TV etc.
The copy process takes approximately 5 minutes depending on the CD and once completed the disks automatically ejects. DVD
and BluRay discs vary from 30 minutes to 2 hours to archive.
If you want to optimize the server’s settings for example what formats it stores the music in and where then simply install the
supplied software on a Windows PC or Mac and using the supplied user name and password you can connect to the server and
optimize it for your needs.
To connect the server to playback devices vary from product to product but all follow the same guidelines, they will discover the
server and you need to point the playback device to the appropriate folder where the music / video files are that are in a playable
format for the particular player you are using.
All though the Zaram server is designed to be simple there is lots of technology behind its simply to use interface, below is some of
this information. The system provides media services to the following devices:
DLNA devices (100's already in the market - ie PS3, Linn, Philips, and many more)
Sonos
Roku
Logitech (ie Duet)
Media Connect (PC Media Player)
DLNA TV
Network Video players
You can store approximately 1650 CD’s per 1TB. With the 9x 1TB model this means that you could store over 30,000 CD albums
in 'Protected mode'. Video file storage greatly varies, we recommend you speak to AVA Media for additional information.
* Please note that the archiving of discs may not be legal in your region, and the decision to use the RIP-N-PLAY, Zara or Zaram
