The gadget that sets your music free

Different tunes in different rooms with the new MBox from Evesham

Evesham, UK, 6th February 2006 - Does your PC have hundreds of downloaded music tracks, albums full of holiday pictures and the odd wedding video taking up storage space? What would you do if your HDD failed? All hard disks eventually fail!

Evesham is offering an innovative way to ensure all of your valued music, photo, video and data files are easily accessible and always backed up - introducing the smart Evesham MBox.

Not only a compact, stylish storage device, the MBox solution, incorporating the MBridge network music player is the ultimate in multi-room wireless audio streaming. You can browse your entire music library via the MBridge in any room remotely without even switching on your PC.

The MBox is a small device that’s big on storage. Each MBox is supplied with two hard disks which are mirrored for real-time duplication of your data, providing essential back-up with immediate disaster recovery. You can be confident that all of your data is safe. Back up software is supplied as standard, so you can schedule back ups at your convenience.

Download your favourite music (compatible with iTunes and the majority of MP3 formats) to your PC and then easily transfer your collection to the MBox. Using the built in network or by maximizing your existing Wi-Fi network, the cool MBox streams your digital music library to the partner MBridges - spreading music throughout your home.

Stream music wirelessly to up to five MBridge network music players. Plugging the stylish MBridge adapter into any hi-fi or powered speaker system allows you to listen to different music in a number of rooms. Chill out with ColdPlay in one room or party the night away in another with your favourite club tunes.

Controlling music on the MBridges couldn’t be simpler and finding music is a breeze. The MBridge displays song, album, artist, genre or composer information giving you the freedom to browse and control your complete music collection. Using the large, bright MBridge display you can even control your music from across the room with an easy to use remote control.

Well - looking at this, its effectively a SoundBridge from Roku and a Thecus YES box with the 2 Hard drives.

So, 2 160GB Drives - Cost: 2* £51.68
Thecus YES Box - Cost: £245.58
Roku SoundBridge 1000 - Cost: £149.99

= £498.93

I would like to see what value ads they put in the system for the extra 100 quid
I may be wrong but i've a seen very similar looking gadget on offer somewhere?
