Kodi (previously known as XBMC) is a fully-featured multimedia player running in a lightweight Linux environment. It handles a wide range of internet streams, as well as photo and video content stored onboard. Remote control is via app on your mobile device. Alternatively, Tera can be ordered with Windows + JRiver. Unlike conventional proprietary server/streamers, both operating systems can be reconfigured or upgraded to your requirements and will be familiar to anyone with previous experience of Windows or Linux.

Storage in the X+ Zetta is easily upgraded. The basic model comes with 120Gb of ultra-fast, silent solid-state drive space - room enough for lossless storage of around 300 CDs. If you need to house a larger library, simply select the appropriate option - up to 5000 albums as standard. If your music library is even more extensive, call to discuss your options - up to 12Tb can be accommodated.

Optical drive
If you wish to use the Zetta as a CD ripper, specify the appropriate CD/DVD or BluRay drive: external or internal.

• Upgrades:

Zetta Star server upgradeThe standard Zetta Star upgrade consists of a dedicated linear power supply that bypasses the switching regulator of the standard Isobus, upgrading the filtered DC-DC converter for a full three-rail linear ATX power supply, and addition of the Uptone Regen reclocker. Further power upgrades are also possible on request: including LiPo batteries for USB stages where they are supported by customer's DACs, and discreet PSUs for CPU and RAM. Call Mark for details on 01242 692 455.

After-Sales Service
The Zetta is guaranteed to fall over far less often than a standard computer. But stuff happens. We provide 28 days free tech support to ensure your machine settles in to your home system. Site visits and home installs are available at rates starting from £75. We also offer a remote login service that allows us (with your permission) to take control of your X+ Server to fix any bugs or demonstrate how to access advanced features over the phone. Remote live support is charged at £50 per one hour session.
