Olive OPUS no4 server

Olive Media on Wednesday announced the release of its newest digital music server, the OPUS N4, which is capable of storing music from up to nearly 3,000 CDs without degrading their quality thanks to FLAC lossless compression. Stored music is sorted by genre, album or artist, and is accessed via a new software accessed through a fresh 4.3-inch color touch-screen.
