Arctic Audio Relay Review

We're often commenting upon how modern computers have become full multi-media systems, capable of doing everything from your accounts to gaming to watching high-definition films.
Unquestionably the most common media task is that of audio. Since the advent of the MP3 format we've all found our hard-drives stuffed to the gunwales with our music collections. The convenience of having any of our songs available to us without having to hunt through our CD collection is a tempting one that is tough to ignore.
Because we have all of our music available at the click of a mouse, the ease of creating our own versions of "Now that's what I call music" (except without 30 of the 32 tracks being unlistenable tripe) has meant most of us own a ton of mix CDs and playlists.
Wouldn't it be cool if you could have the handiness of your MP3 collection at your fingertips, yet with the sound quality of your HiFi, or even in whatever room you care to use? That's exactly what the Audio Relay from the "living" brand of Arctic Cooling offers.
We managed to get through the whole of the introduction without mentioning the iPod... damn.
As you'll see on the next page the Audio Relay is exceptionally light. It has all the necessary inputs and outputs, as well as wireless DLNA support.
