Olive’s 2TB O6HD music server likely makes every other piece of audio equipment in your home alternatively pale with envy, red with anger, and complain in a wimpy, squeaky, barely audible voice that is no match for the O6HD’s flawless audio.

Olive built this baby with two TI 192khz / 24-bit Burr-Brown PCM1792 modules, the ability to encode and decode lossless audio that is truly lossless, support for simultaneous audio streams, 2 TB hard drive space that spin quieter than a mouse in a coma, layers upon layers of noise canceling padding – about eight, that is.

Then there’s a bunch of analog and digital inputs that shall remain unnamed, a gigabit Ethernet jack, 802.11n WiFi, a TEAC CD-RW drive, and the ever-present HDMI out and USB 2.0. On top of that, and more importantly, there’s a 10.1 inch color touchscreen with 800 x 400 resolution, built into the passively cooled high quality aluminum body.

Buy it for $4,999, or buy a house in Thailand.
