songcube

Brookstone is featuring a small 80GB bookshelf stereo that loads music either from a PC via USB 2.0 or rips/encodes tracks directly off of a CD (and even stores and updates CDDB info). The SongCube Digital Music Center consists of a small, squarish receiver/hard drive/CD drive, two stereo speakers, and a subwoofer, and can hold up to 20,000 MP3s or 1500 CD tracks. RCA and 3.5-millimeter ins and outs and an optical out are nice, but the 4X ripping speed and $700 pricetag might make us think twice about purchasing such a rather low-power system.
