If you have a large classical music library DON'T look to SOtM sMS1000. I contacted Eric at Tailored Technologies and explained in the first conversation that I had a large classical music library and also wanted Sonata music server software or the cataloging capability of Sonata. After many conversations Eric convinced me that the sMS1000 would do the job. WRONG! The sMS1000 works through Vortexbox and Logitech Squeezebox which only accesses 1 metadatabase which is NOT classically oriented. The ipeng or mpad control apps only show 2 fields. The title field usually shows up but the artist field gets confused between composer, performer, conductor, and orchestra and only displays the word 'various', which is of NO help. Eric's suggestion was to get DBpoweramp. He didn't tell me I would need another computer to run DBpoweramp from and rip from. Eric accused me of "changing the goal posts" but my requirements were stated up front and didn't change. I think the need of another computer was a MAJOR goal post change. I refuse to spend an additional $600 for a laptop computer. My legs are going south on me and have a queen size adjustable bed in my listening room and cannot make 1000+ round trips to my desktop to rip the CDs. Eric also knew this up front. Lastly. Adrian, from Simple Design, the other SOtM dealer in the US and, as I understand it designed the sMS1000, told me he would NOT recommend it for a large classical music collection. The End!
