DigiBit has introduced the aria piccolo+, the third generation of their aria piccolo+ music server series. Digibit launched the first generation of aria piccolo in 2015, they say the new version is ‘very much enhanced’.

The aria piccolo+ music server series has been designed to be easy to use and allow users to manage all functionality from their iPad or Android devices without the need for a PC or any network skills. It supports extended metadata fields for any music genre. This facility allows users to sort and view their music collection in multiple ways such as: albums from the romantic (Period) for piano (Instrument), played by Maurizio Pollini (Soloist). The aria piccolo+ has 18 predefined fields automatically matching the tagging structure of their proprietary classical music database, SonataDB. For any other music genre, all fields can be manually created and tagged.

The aria piccolo+ software features include, fully automatic (insert & rip) error-free CD Ripper, metadata retrieval results from five databases, Bit Perfect playback, multizone support, multichannel PCM and DSD support, remote access to your music over the internet and Airplay and DLNA support allows you to enjoy your preferred streaming services providers and internet radio.
