“Sonneteer director Haider Bahrani showed us the Morpheus, which we imagined would look nice in our living room.” This was the comment Vintage Rock came up with about the Sonneteer Morpheus Server and Music Centre. They were reporting back on the CES show at which they popped into the Sonneteer and Penaudio Suite at the Venetian Hotel.
They saw a number of systems attempting to gain traction in this new age of high fidelity. The Sonneteer Morpheus system to them was, well let’s just let you read what they said: “The Morpheus from Sonneteer was the sleekest and most discreet. It stores three terabytes of tunes, and like the others, will rip your CDs while you “go make a cup of tea.” You can even control it, like most of the other music servers, with your iPhone[or iPod Touch].“ You can see their full report at Vintagerock.com
The one thing they omitted from their report, as they were comparing Ethernet connections, is that the Sonneteer Morpheus is Wi-fi compatible(wireless network) as well as being Ethernet capable(wired network). So if you don’t have your house wired up for Ethernet in every room and your home router is wireless(nearly all are these days) you can be up and away in a matter of minutes.
Sonneteer, already popular with the Dutch is now in the good hands of Riverside Audio for the Benelux market. A marketing campaign followed by reviews kicked off early in the new year and new dealers are already taking on stock and demonstrating products. The people behind Riverside have been long standing fans of Sonneteer and welcome the chance to take it to a broader audience whilst maintaining and bettering the standards of service Sonneteer customers have come to expect. The Sonneteer guys will be popping over from time to time to lend support, pick up some cheese(Haider is partial to a bit of Guada) and enjoy the great hospitality always extended to them when over there.
We will be bringing you translations and originals of all the reviews as they are made available to us. The grape vines are twittering that The Morpheus Music Centre has been well received by one of their better hi-fi publications. More soon.
