innuOS allows a complete Music Library management using a tablet or smartphone. Ripping CDs, importing music, editing album data (including covers) and backing up your music library can all be easily done easily without the need for a PC.
innuOS also contains many intelligent features to help organise your Music Library such as our rule-based music import engine or the Assisted CD Ripping mode.
INTELLIGENT CD RIPPING
Using AccurateStream technology, extract every last bit of your CDs into WAV or FLAC files.
Automatic CD Ripping
Just pop-in a CD! innuOS will automatically get full album data and cover from multiple online databases, rip your CD and eject when done.
Assisted CD Ripping
Assisted CD Ripping allows you to see and edit all the album data and cover obtained from the online databases before you rip the CD. Great for Classical Music!
Love to listen to music whilst ripping your CDs and want absolute silence? Just engage Quiet Mode for slowing down ripping, making it much quieter and with less vibration.
CDs can be ripped without internet connection. When connected, album data and cover for all offline ripped CDs will be obtained with a simple click.
DIGITAL MUSIC IMPORT
Import Wizards for Existing Libraries
Pre-defined wizards for importing music from USB storage, Music Servers and NAS.
Intelligent Import Engine
innuOS takes all the hard work of importing music by intelligently analysing the music files and applying a number of rules such as:
Organising the music based on format quality (compressed, cd quality or high-resolution), Artist and Album
Removing very long file names or illegal characters
Adding metadata to WAV files based on folder structure
Download from Online Stores
Qobuz, Linn Records, HD Tracks, HiResAudio, B&W Society of Sound, iTunes, Amazon and more. Just download the music files (even if they are in a zip or tar file) to the Auto Import shared folder and the server will take care of adding and updating the music library.
MUSIC LIBRARY MANAGEMENT
Edit or Delete Albums
Browse your library, select the album you want to update and just start editing directly on your tablet or smartphone. You can change the cover, manage genres based on previously used genres or simply delete the album - couldn’t be easier.
Quarantine is a staging area, separate from the Music Library, where any albums requiring attention are placed so they can be fixed before they go into the Music Library. These include:
Albums with no metadata
Ripped albums with damaged tracks
Potentially duplicated albums
Albums ripped offline
Automatic Music Library Update
After music is added, modified or deleted, the library is automatically updated as well as any connected systems such as Sonos or UPnP Streamers.
MUSIC SERVER MANAGEMENT
Automatic Network Identification
No more figuring out IP addresses find your server. Just go to my.innuos.com on your tablet or smartphone to list all Innuos devices on the network and access the innuOS App from there.
Update the system with a touch of a button to benefit from our continuous improvements: new functionalities, enriched customer experience or enhanced sound quality.
Automatic Backup to USB Drive or NAS
Backup of your music library can be set on innuOS to start automatically based on library growth (e.g. every time 50 CDs are added) to either a USB backup drive or to a NAS on the network.
HI-FI MUSIC PLAYER
Rediscover Your Music and Discover New One
Play all your music as well as Internet Radio and streaming services with the best sound quality by connecting directly to a DAC or Digital Amplifier via asynchronous USB.
Spotify, Tidal and Qobuz require premium subscriptions
Supports All Major Music Formats
The innuOS Music Player plays FLAC, DSD, MQA, WAV, Apple Lossless, AIFF, M4A and MP3 supporting bitrates up to 32bit/384KHz and DSD256, when connecting to compatible DACs
Playback from NAS
Play music stored on an external NAS drive.
The innuOS Music Player can optionally become a Roon-Ready player so you can use the amazing Roon interface to explore your music like never before.
innuOS can automatically connect its music library to a Sonos system at the touch of a button as well as automatically rescan the Sonos Music Library when any album is added, modified or deleted from the Music Library.
Fast and Reliable UPnP Server
innuOS also contains a UPnP Server configured out-of-the-box to work flawlessly with a number of UPnP-based systems:
Wireless multi-room speakers such as Bang & Olufsen, Denon HEOS, BOSE and many others
Music streamers from Naim, Linn , Moon, Auralic and many others
innuOS will also optionally integrate Roon Core* so you can use innuOS with other Roon-Ready streamers for a complete multi-room system.
* A Roon license, purchased separately, is required
innuOS can be integrated with the most popular home automation control systems such as RTI, Control4, KNX, AMX, Elan, Crestron and iRidium.

Constrained Layered Damping
The platform has a further level of isolation with an extruded polymer mat sandwiched between precision routed wooden composite layers.
Purpose Made Silicon Isolators
When you sit your prized equipment on each level, expect to feel a little give, as the silicon isolators kick in to provide the most exceptional level of isolation in our modular racking system.
Our CNC machined cross-braces provide an exceptionally stable and rigid surface for each platform to rest upon while isolation pads further reduce vibration distortion through the posts.

Based on the resources of one of high end‘s most distinguished design companies, the Swiss cables product range offers truly innovative technical design and sonic merits at a groundbreaking price-performance level, manufactured to the highest standards in Switzerland.
Swisscables - signal- and power-products - incorporate latest generation metallurgy, application specific, field-optimizing conductor geometry, premium connectors and novel micro distortion-free insulation technologies whose sonic benefits cannot be achieved with the materials employed in the majority of high end cables available today, whatever their price. Made in Switzerland in conformity with modern eco-standards.
The success we achieved so far with Swiss cables is thanks to the following facts:
- We use only first-grade materials and all our cables are fully handmade in Switzerland
- Swisscables have all UP OCC solid core conductors of special copper alloy
- We wrap the wire in a light natural fibre which weights approximately 2 g per meter
- The implemented geometry is adapted to the required length of the cable
- The wire network is introduced into a flexible tube and around this natural bre is solely air (air-dielectric!)
- We use wood as resonator for our connectors
Characteristic features of the different ranges are the dimensions with the corresponding geometry and the different connectors which lead to more energy and let you experience the soundstage again more intensively.
