Olive Symphony

We're pretty sure it'll work just fine with your collection of summer jamz, but Olive just introduced the Symphony, a new wireless digital audio center that connects to your stereo that's designed specifically for listening to classical music. The Symphony comes with an 80GB hard drive for storing music, a drive for ripping CDs or burning CD-Rs (it uses a lossless codec so you don't have to sacrifice sound quality), and built-in 802.11g for streaming audio to up to five other rooms in your house (or from your computer), and special software for managing classical music playlists. Hits in mid-August with a retail price of $899 (and if you send them your CDs they'll even preload one with your music for free).
