It's an all-in-one Internet linked CD "jukebox" that you rip all your CDs into using lossless FLAC, that takes around 1 minute per CD for ripping with its own internal drive. It has an internal 2 TB hard drive and holds 5000 CDs using FLAC.
You then connect it to a DAC input on your audio system, and use any Internet capable device to access and play any of your ripped CDs, songs, playlists, via their web based GUI which being Internet based doesn't require some special app that will not stay current with the OS version of your Internet capable device (typically a Smartphone or Tablet).
It also avoids dedicating a computer, server (NAS), etc. as it does everything in one small box that you can take with you to the office to play your CD collection there, or anywhere else you have another system to play your CDs on. You periodically back up its hard drive via USB to an external backup drive to avoid loss of your files or even to shadow a second unit from.
I don't have one yet but it is very compelling to me as it is an all-in-one way to access your whole CD collection without any fancy dedicated computing stuff. It costs around $700 and is small self-contained approach, and requires zero IT knowledge or favors from friends with such knowledge. I am wanting to get one to bring order to the hundreds and hundreds of CDs I have all over the place in various stacks and racks.
The website is listed earlier in this thread, and I am hoping to hear from someone actually using one, and to hear how they like it and if it is doing the job for them. I am totally uninterested in hearing how to use computers and other apps, etc. as alternatives to buying this specific device and simply would like to hear from an actual Brennan B2 user.
