The Sony NAS-CZ1 is a network audio player and shelf system designed for listening to music at home. It features specialized networking technology that allows the unit to stream music from up to 10 servers. Users install M-crew Server software on all their PCs, which defines that computer as a server to work with the NAS-CZ1. Of course, users first have to connect the NAS-CZ1 to a local area network via either Ethernet (RJ-45) or a wireless LAN adapter. Once complete, users can browse their PC music collections directly from the NAS-CZ1, as well as create custom playlists, build a user profile, and even play music from the PC (e.g. Windows Media Player, IE) through the unit. Most notable about the NAS-CZ1 is its support for a wide range of music codecs, including MP3, WAV, ATRAC3 Plus, WMA, and even AAC. Additional features of the Sony NAS-CZ1 network audio player include a CD player, an AM/FM tuner, and an analog input for connecting MP3 players.
