Tranquill AVA RS5 – Årets ultimative Home Server?

avars5Årets ultimative Home Server er Tranquill AVA RS5. Hvad de ikke har smidt i den af præinstallerede ting, er ikke småting. En af de Add-ins der kommer med, er MyMovies fra Binnerup Consult (En genial dansk gut –, Et genialt Add-in som jeg selv bruger.

Et lille udpluk er: iTunes Server, MyMovies, rippe CD/DVD direkte, enkel i brug, lavt strømforbrug, stille og ikke mindst kan der smides 5 drev i den.

Jeg har tilladt mig at klippe data direkte ind:


  • Near silent operation (<22dbA)
  • 5x fast tool-less HDD bays + optional expansion port
  • Very low power consumption with Dual Core CPU
  • Heavy, vibration free chassis
  • Extremely high quality (3mm thick shell) construction
  • Very simple to use
  • Lifetime subscription to premium music data
  • Optional Blu-Ray support
  • Designed , made and supported from UK!!
  • 6 months FREE subscription to TLS (Off site backup)


The music extraction (ripping) operation is very simple.

  1. Insert your chosen Music CD into the slot loader, and the track information / album art is quickly retrieved from premium metadata providers.
  2. Additionally is it then down converted to high quality MP3 format, for portable devices

Upon completion, which completes normally after 4 minutes, the Music CD is automatically ejected. The copying of DVDs / Blu-Ray is equally simple, just slide in the disc, and wait for it to be ejected. The system is optimised for headless operation, no PC is required, or screen etc.

Your media

The system provides media services to the following devices:

  • iTunes players (PC and MAC)
  • Media Connect (PC Media Player)
  • DLNA devices (100’s already in the market – ie PS3, Linn, Philips, and many more)
  • Sonos
  • Roku
  • Logitech (ie Duet)
  • Plus many more – including AV Set top boxes (for Video playback)

Your music collection is extremely valuable, and extracting the music, can be costly in the first instance, or be done over many years as you add new content. The AVA RS5 automatically duplicates the music data across multiple physical storage devices, ensuring your music is always safe. You can also turn on Video duplication if you want.

Although the AVA RS5 can store a huge music collections, in lossless and MP3 formats as well as DVD and optional Blu-Ray discs, there is no need to be worried about ever out growing the server – adding new, low cost, storage is extremely simple and takes only a moment to complete. If you out grow the RS5 simply plug in the SQA-Ex – and double the drive capacity.

With TLS you can also rest easy that your selected files (music / photos) are safely backed up off site in the Tranquil Life Server data centre.
