The Encore 500 is a complete audio solution allowing you to keep all your music in one place. It accepts almost any conceivable analog or digital audio source. It is also compatible with many network speakers, such as Sonos. There is a very clear, large, high resolution full color display so you can see what’s going on.

The Encore is easy and intuitive to use. It has 500 watts per channel and a huge range of facilities; 3 analog inputs, 4 digital inputs, 4 USB A connections (one of which has high current capacity for charging phones and tablets), network connectivity, high quality variable line level outputs as well as a digital output.

The Encore 500 has an built-in CD player and a 2TB hard disk drive for storage - enough for over 5000 CDs. The heart of the Encore is a powerful dual core 64 bit Intel CPU with 2GB of RAM. This provides superb performance and allows continual upgrading of its facilities making the Encore virtually future proof.
