New Fusion Research Music Server Doubles Down

Long known for affordable and custom install-friendly music servers, Fusion Research has a new model on display at CEDIA that combines two of its Solo servers in a single 1U chassis. The Duet ($799) provides two analog outputs using 192kHz/24-bit-capable Burr Brown DACs for installations where dual independent sources are required.

Other music server-related announcements from the company at CEDIA include a new OS that supports multiple iTunes accounts, along with convenient hard-disk backup of all iTunes libraries. Sticking with the multiple user theme, Fusion Research servers now also support Spotify Family accounts. According to the company, SiriusXM support will soon be available for the Duet so that multiple family members can access separate SiriusXM stations in different rooms.

Fusion Research products are compatible with plenty of third-party control systems, with drivers available to support Control4, RTI, and URC. Another CEDIA announcement adds a big one to that list: Crestron.
