Data Sheet
SMS3, SMS3-250
The SMS3 or SMS3-250 Smart Media Server is an intelligent audio source that plays music stored on its hard
drive and Internet radio in three independent output
streams. Through a multiroom audio system, it can play
the same or different selections in different rooms at the
same time.
The Media Server also stores and organizes digital photographs for presentation on a video display. The photos
can be shown individually or as slide shows and can be
combined with music.
An easy-to-navigate graphical user interface is used to
create themes and organize the music and photos. The
interface can be viewed on a TV screen or within a web
browser on a networked computer. It displays album covers, artist and album information, and song names.

As an ideal music source for a Russound RNET® system,
the Media Server can be controlled from the system’s
UNO keypads or touchscreens, which display theme,
artist, and song title information. It can also be controlled
by IR remote control, from a computer, or through an RS232 serial port.
The listener loads music from CDs into the Media Server
through a built-in CD-ROM reader or transfers music files
from a connected computer. The listener can then organize the music into themes by genre or artist for random
playback or put songs in playlists for playing back in a
specific order. As the Media Server is used, its unique
Personal Media Assistant learns the listener’s music preferences for each theme and applies those preferences to
its automated song selection.
The Media Server has a schedule feature that can be set
to play themes at specified times. It can also pick up an
Internet radio feed at scheduled times of the day for news
or favorite programming.
With an Internet connection, the Media Server obtains CD
information from Gracenote® music recognition service
and album cover art from Muze® entertainment information service. This information, called metadata, includes
song title, artist and album name, and genre (rock, jazz,
etc.). When no Internet connection is present, the Media
Server checks the database loaded into its firmware for
CD information.
The Media Server is available with either a 160 GB or a
250 GB hard drive. To preserve catalogued music and
server configurations, Russound recommends making
periodic backups of the Media Server’s hard drive. An
external hard drive connects to the rear panel using a
USB 2.0/1.1 or FireWire IEEE 1394 interface.
