WEISS MAN301

WEISS MAN301
Music Archive Network Player


The Destiny Of High End Audio...

The MAN301 is a system for music archiving, music library maintenance, music playback, CD ripping, Internet radio streaming and more.

The MAN301 comes in two versions, the “DAC” version includes a D/A Converter (the MAN301DAC), the “SERVER” version has digital outputs only for connecting an external D/A Converter (the MAN301SERVER). The SERVER version can be user upgraded to the DAC version at any time.
