Media Drive 600 offers extensive storage with automatic mirrored backup in an elegant enclosure that may be freestanding or rack mounted. Drive bays are front-mounted for easy access to hard drives. The case of the Media Drive 600 is uniform with the Media Source 600 and visually compliments both Reference 800 Series and G Series components, with a bead-blasted finish in silver and black metal.
Media Drive 600 can be networked to any other Meridian digital media product. The Media Drive 600’s music is then combined and displayed with the existing albums as one large collection.
Full integration with Meridian audio systems.
Can be networked to any other streaming product, automatically adding extra storage fully integrated with existing libraries.
Currently-tested hard disc drives may each be up to 2TB in capacity.
Like other digital media components from Meridian, Media Drive 600 may be remotely monitored to provide advance warning of possible drive failure or other problems, which can then be pre-emptively addressed by the retailer or installer.
Drive bays are accessible from the front of the unit for easy access and maintenance.
Via Meridian’s Technical Support department, the drives can alternatively be configured as a RAID 0 array for a total of 4 TB primary storage, or approximately 10,000 albums at CD quality, with backup being handled externally.
Supplied with bays for two up to 2TB drives configured as a RAID 1 system
