Two-year old RipWave has come out with the ultimate media streaming machine. Not only can it rip your Blu-rays and DVDs to its hard drive, you can add a cable card or off-air antenna and use its hard drives as a DVR. It can also stream videos from most any video streaming website using the PlayOn server or stream to other devices using the Plex DLNA server.

Models names follow the surf theme. They are offering a dedicated movie player model, the Tsunami for $2000. The media player line can also play music and photos and includes the Stingray with 3 to 12 TB of storage, the Barracuda, and the Orca with 9 TB up to 30 TB of storage. The software menus are as impressive as the hardware features. Users can choose from a number of graphic menus from a carousel to a grid to extensive information about a movie that displays metadata from 7 different sources. The menu options make it one of the truly intuitive devices as each user can choose the view that is easiest for them to use.

The Ripwave is the best media server I've seen yet. Let's see if it performs as well as its first impression.

Bang & Olufsen announced that they will be adding the Spotify music streaming service to the BeoPlay A9 speaker/sound system. The A9 was launched in October 2012. Music is sent to the A9 using Apple's AirPlay streaming from iPhones/iPads/iPods and new Macs, or over a WiFi network as a DLNA media renderer (DLNA media controllers can send music to it). The problem with this setup has been that the music stops when a phone call comes into the controlling iPhone, or when the iPhone is too far from the A9.

Spotify Connect will be added to the A9 as part of a firmware update. It will be preloaded on new units and available for download for consumers who have previously purchased the A9. Bang & Olufsen worked with Spotify to create an iPhone app where users can pick songs, playlists, or radio stations from their Spotify streaming library and have them play on the A9. Because the software is loaded onto the A9's firmware, music playback will not be interrupted when a phone call comes in or when you take the phone out of range.

“What’s the best way to connect my PC to my TV?” is a question I am frequently asked. While many TVs have PC connections and many laptops have HDMI outputs, there’s still the issue of controlling the computer while sitting on the couch. The NTV-300SL (aka the NeoTV 300 Max) is a great, relatively inexpensive solution that lets you keep your laptop in your lap.
