Software
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:
Storage in the X+ Kilo 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 Kilo as a CD ripper, specify the appropriate CD/DVD or BluRay drive: external or internal.

Kilo Star server upgrade• Upgrades:

The KiloStar upgrade consists of a dedicated USB audio card from SoTM or JCAT (depending on your DAC) and the essential Uptone Regen reclocker.

Kilo 2 Server UpgradeThe Kilo 2 upgrade susbstantially reworks the server as a home theatre device: comprising a 4K capable video card, licences of Windows, PowerDVD Ultimate, acoustic insulation, BluRay drive and 2.5TB of storage (480Gb solid state and 2Tb hard drive) - all optimised for whisper-quiet operation and upgradeable to 12Tb.
