QAT Music Server RS3

This is the third year I've seen QAT at CES and they seem to making steady improvements. Part of that progress is the new RS3 server, from their lower-priced KUAN series, which retails for $1,800 and is available now. Features include a front-loading replaceable 2.5 inch HDD/SSD with capacity up to 2TB as well as both PCM and DSD support.

There are both digital and balanced and unbalanced analog outputs on the back as well as wired and wireless networking for NAS drives. Around a dozen file formats are supported including all the big players.
