Default Sony HES-V1000 media server

Here's a beast of a BD jukebox

Pretty slick but I would pass. Way to large.

I just demonstrated it to the #2 guy at Sony and he was impessed that I knew everything about it. It's certainly not worth 3500, but maybe 2000. It's lacking some pretty basic functions, but i'm 100% sure it will sell.

As well as the full HD 1080p 200-disc Blu-ray Disc / DVD / CD changer, the server packs a 500GB hard drive. Sony says it will store up to 137 hours of standard-definition video, 40,000 songs or 20,000 digital photos.

Additionally, the device is Sony's first Blu-ray Disc-capable component, other than its VAIO notebook or optical PC drive that can burn content to Blu-ray Discs, as well as DVDs.

And if you were thinking that 200 DVDs or Blu-ray discs inside a home server would be hard to keep track of, never fear. Because if you connect the HES-V1000 to the internet, it'll download metadata for each disc and you'll be able to choose movies and CDs without having to remember which slot each is in.

Sounds interesting, but I'm still thinking Samsung Combi !

Hopefully once the discs are cataloged the data is either stored on the hard disk or in nvram. The lack of nvram on the existing 400 disc SD player kept me from ever investing in one of those.

There's a lot more information and pictures on this at wesleytech

Working in the custom install (CEDIA) industry, I immediately think of how this can work in a custom home. Every room of the house can have a TV on the wall and it can be sourced with a PS3 and use the Bluetooth remote to control the whole system while the HES-V1000 is in a closet somewhere supplying all the media you own to every room of the house. No programming required! With the added PSP functionality, itís like adding a Slingbox to the mix. It does support 1080p/60 HDMI output for the Blu-ray Discs and features an IR input for custom installation.

CPF-IX001To go along with this whole-house integration is the new CPF-IX001 wireless PC audio system. This DLNA device is a slim speaker system with WiFi that allows you to access audio from the HES-V1000 or other DLNA devices in other rooms of the house wirelessly. The HES-V1000 has four streams of audio out to facilitate these nifty devices, and even has a party mode.
It seems to have some impressive functionality.

Default Hands-on review?

Has anyone tried one of these beasts out since they went on sale? There doesn't seem to be any serious reviews online. The specs seem to good to be true.
