ReQuest's New Wave

ReQuest is betting there's a music server in your future, and they're working hard at eliminating any objections you might have about it. In addition to showing off their new S-series components ("S" for "serious sound"), the company introduced a host of widgets, added functions, new remotes, and the Echo, a daily-updated backup drive for your music library.

All cool stuff, but the announcement I thought was huge went almost unnoticed: Netsync for iTunes, which insures that the ReQuest servers function seamlessly with the world's most popular music-management program.
