The Cocktail Audio X10 will revolutionise how you listen to your CD collection forever by storing up to 7500 albums in one compact music player at the touch of a button - all without needing to use a computer.

Simply insert your CD into the Cocktail Audio X10, press play & record and within 3-4 minutes the whole album will be loaded on to its built-in 500GB hard drive (internal memory) ready for you to listen to whenever you like.

Your shelves and cupboards will become free from CD clutter and your music will be instantly accessible.

The artist, album and track information is automatically saved at the point of recording a CD to the X10 by using its built-in music recognition software to extract track, album & artist data stored on the CD.

By using the user-friendly on-screen menu and remote control, your favourite music is now at your fingertips ready to be accessed and played again and again with your CDs packed away.

Plus, unlike its competitors, the X10 allows you to record your CD in perfect ‘lossless’ CD quality (WAV and FLAC formats) for the highest standard of audio playback available.

But that's not all!

What sets the X10 apart from the competition is that it is so much more than just a CD recorder/player:

  • Analogue to digital converter: Preserve your old vinyl and tape collection by using the Aux-in socket to connect external devices to the X10, such as a record turntable or tape deck.  The X10 will record and convert your vinyl or cassette collection into a digital format, therefore retaining the quality for many years to come.

  • X10 to PC connectivity: Back-up your recordings from the 500GB hard drive to your home PC using the built-in USB output slot (cable supplied).

  • Line-Out: With the X10’s line-out ports you can connect the unit to your existing home stereo system or connect to a set of accompanying 60watt high spec. Cocktail Audio studio speakers, available to purchase separately - product code ‘CAS2’

To get even more from the Cocktail Audio X10’s already impressive range of features you can connect the unit to the internet using either an Ethernet cable (supplied separately) or the USB Wi-Fi Internet Dongle which is available to purchase separately – item CAWF1.

Once connected to the internet you gain easy access to additional online only features:

  • Internet Radio: you can access and play thousands of internet radio stations on your Cocktail Audio X10, and you can record these radio programmes to the hard drive.

  • Music Streamer: Stream (play) music saved on your home PC/computer on your Cocktail Audio X10 using the internet connection.  For example, if you order the Wi-Fi Internet Dongle you can play music on the Cocktail Audio X10 that is saved on your PC’s hard drive, including your iTunes collection!

  • Music Library Organisation: Using Cocktail Audio’s web application you can edit album cover art from three different data sources, create playlists, delete & edit song/album/artist/genre information.
