The AVA Media RIP-N-PLAY is simple to setup just plug in the power and network cables and once the health status is green you are ready you can begin ripping.
§ Insert your chosen music CD* into the AVA Media RIP-N-PLAY 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 copied and optionally down converted to a high quality MP3 format ready for portable playback devices or web streaming (original FLAC files are still stored), they can be stored in ALAC too!
The copy process takes approximately 4-5 minutes depending on the CD and once completed the disks automatically ejects.
Connecting to the server
If you want to optimize the server’s settings for example what formats it stores the music in and where then simply access the servers web pages.
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 files are that are in a playable format for the particular player you are using.
