    Evesham MBox - the gadget that sets your music free

    Different tunes in different rooms with the new MBox from Evesham

    Evesham is offering an innovative way to ensure all of your valued music, photo, video and data files are easily accessible and always backed up - introducing the smart Evesham MBox.

    Not only a compact, stylish storage device, the MBox solution, incorporating the MBridge network music player, is the ultimate in multi-room wireless audio streaming. You can browse your entire music library via the MBridge in any room remotely without even switching on your PC.

    Stream music wirelessly to up to five MBridge network music players. Plugging the stylish MBridge adapter into any hi-fi or powered speaker system allows you to listen to different music in a number of rooms.

    Unlike some rival systems the MBox and MBridge are also compatible with internet radio. (PC with Internet connection required)

    The system goes on sale 15th February – an MBox with two 160 Gigabyte hard drives and an MBridge retails for £599.
    We're trying to get more info so we can do something approaching an inciteful news story.

    In the interim, check out the release - which has pics.

    This does look like a potentially interesting product - each MBox contains TWO Raided HDDs, for redundancy.

    So, for instance, the twin 160GB model offers 160GB of storage (okay, a bit less when you allow for formatting and the fact that hard-disk makers tend to think that 1000MByte is 1GByte).

    Well - looking at this, its effectively a SoundBridge from Roku and a Thecus YES box with the 2 Hard drives.

    So, 2 160GB Drives - Cost: 2* £51.68
    Thecus YES Box - Cost: £245.58
    Roku SoundBridge 1000 - Cost: £149.99

    = £498.93

    I would like to see what value ads they put in the system for the extra 100 quid

    2 year onsite warranty and a tech support line which will support using the 2 products together?

    They are claiming the following:

    - Custom Firmware
    - WiFi which isn't standard
    - 2 Year onsite warranty
    - Local UK Support Line
    - Software to get music from PC to MBox
