What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

The Best Sound in Style - MRz Music Center Serves Build with ESS ES9028Q2M SABRE 32bit Reference DAC

The MRz Music Center Serves as the digital hub in a high-end audio system providing the same audio performance regardless of the input source. Whether it’s a CD played via the built-in transport, an uncompressed iTunes library stored on a Mac or Windows computer, or a dedicated music library on a network storage system (NAS), the MRz Music Center will play every note as if it were from the original CD.

To a host computer, the Music Center “looks” like a Wireless audio device which both Mac and Windows operating systems support natively. While WiFi connections are physically unlimited to anywhere, the Hi-Resolution Audio “Pont Neuf” creates a connection directly to the Music Center via ethernet cable or through your wired or wireless home network. In either case, no additional software or drivers are required.

Because the Music Center utilizes your external computer-based music library, it doesn’t rely on a proprietary means of storing your CD data. Any software can be used for ripping and any software can be used for playback. The music library is safer since the storage can be easily backed up to a second drive or protected from loss using “RAID” technology, and capacity can be easily increased by adding off-the-shelf hard drives. With no hard drive located within the Music Center itself, the device remains completely silent and free of vibration. You choose where the library is stored, how it is backed-up, and what software is used to play it.

 In addition to the supplied full function remote control App, the MRz Music Center is controllable from an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch via the free Volumio App.

Other digital sources such as a DVD player can be played through the external inputs.

 Based on the MRz design has been further refined and optimized for the emergence of computer-based music libraries. Built for simple integration into popular sources, the MRz’s modular architecture will accommodate tomorrow’s formats and beyond.

Sample Configurations 

There are a number of ways in which the MRz Music Center can connect with a source computer for playback of a digital library. Below are just a few sample configurations.

Risks and challenges

The estimated delivery date for the MRz is in line with our production schedule for a first run. There is always a chance that we will encounter delays, as our production turnaround is tight (shipping in DEC). If there are any delays along the way, we will be very transparent with our backers, addressing all issues with care and immediacy. Additionally, the parties are pending attendees' schedule. We will keep you very much in the loop, but do know that you will get your MRz this DEC.

More Info About Delivery.

While we are hoping that people in every country around the world join our movement and pledge for MRz, there are regional licensing limitations. If this is the case, and we cannot send you a MRz due to your country's restrictions, we will immediately refund your pledge and keep you in the loop about when your country becomes available.
