Consumer electronics Show
We wait for shows all year and suddenly they are happening everywhere. Sonneteer have as good as been on a world tour in the last couple of weeks and it looks to be going on through the spring.
The Audio Festa in Nagoya, Japan hosted Sonneteer represented by Allegro and their head man Kyoji Arai. He had the Sonneteer Morpheus Music Centre and Server on show as well as the Sedley phono stage both of which have had recent award success in the land of the rising Sun.
Sonneteer have also recently been exposed or shown off, should we say, at Axpona in Jacksonville Florida. May Audio Marketing of New York state with Nizar Akhrass at its helm have been faithfully preaching the virtues of hi-fi utopia to the masses for more than 30 years now. The Sonneteer gospel has been a strong component of their sermons for many a year now. They too see the Sonneteer Morpheus Music centre and Server as the guiding light on the path to aural paradise for all music lovers.
“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.
