Providing expanded storage for large collections with the peace of mind of automatic back up for all of your music, the Media Drive 600 is the perfect compliment.
10,000 ALBUMS IN ONE PLACE
Connected to your network, the Media Drive 600 can be located anywhere in your home. This allows it to be located outside of your listening room, offering access to up to 10,000 albums without any distracting hard drive noise. The Media Drive 600 represents digital music storage raised to a fine art.
Dual RAID-based hard drives offer enormous storage (up to 2TB) for many thousands of CD albums in pristine lossless quality.
Currently-tested hard disc drives may each be up to 2TB in capacity.
Like other digital media components from Meridian, Media Drive 600 may be remotely monitored to provide advance warning of possible drive failure or other problems, which can then be pre-emptively addressed by the retailer or installer.
Drive bays are accessible from the front of the unit for easy access and maintenance.
Within Media Drive 600 is a pair of front-loading, hard drive bays, each capable of carrying pairs of identical drives with capacity of up to 2TB each. The drives are configured as a RAID 1 array with automatic mirrored backup: thus the storage offered by the system in its standard configuration is up to 2TB. These allow the unit to store approximately 5,000 CD albums in FLAC format.
Via Meridian’s Technical Support department, the drives can alternatively be configured as a RAID 0 array for a total of 4 TB primary storage, or approximately 10,000 albums at CD quality, with backup being handled externally.
Supplied with bays for two up to 2TB drives configured as a RAID 1 system

LED 6: Ethernet disconnect indicator On=Ethernet cable is not detected If RAID1 and RAID2 LEDs are toggling, one of the drives is being restored to – ie a single new drive has been inserted with an existing working drive. If all six LEDs are illuminating sequentially back and forth, the drives are being initialized with a new filesystem, i.e. two new drives have been inserted.
