Olive Musica - All-in-one Digital Music Appliance

Looking around the digital music network player world, I came across a company I had not heard of before called Olive. They have what looks like a beautiful device for those who do not want to go the PC/network/player route.

Called the Musica, it is a stand-alone unit with a CD reader/writer, hard disk, and both digital and analogue audio outputs ready to be added to an existing Hi-Fi as a source component. There is no need to have a PC as the unit stores music on its own hard disk, although it can also "see" files across the network and index them as well. The Musica also knows about iPods, and can download music to them. The feature list is extensive, and the whole thing looks brilliant.
