Undentia Cirrus7-SE, here is the music server for audiophiles
Undentia, a Swedish company specializing in audio-related products, has launched what it has termed a music server for audiophiles. The Cirrus-7SE Music Server is based on a regular 10th Gen Intel NUC motherboard that runs quietly thanks to a specially designed chassis for optimal passive cooling.

For many years, true music lovers have preferred records on vinyl and SACD, but since many new releases are digital only they have been forced to switch to various lossless formats such as FLAC and, as a result, the need to keep the files somewhere has become more and more pressing. Media servers are not usually located in the same room as the content is consumed, so they may also be equipped with noisy hard drives and / or cooling systems. But since there are people who might want to install a media server next to their audio equipment, they would probably prefer something passively cooled and no other noisy components. This audience is exactly the target market for the Undentia Cirrus-7SE music server.

The Undentia Cirrus7 SE music server was designed together with Cirrus7, a fanless PC manufacturer from Germany. The machine uses a custom Cirrus7 Nimbini v3 Media Edition case that measures 157 × 157 × 120mm and acts as a huge cooling system. Inside is the Intel NUC10i7FNH motherboard which supports the Intel Core i7-10710U 'Comet Lake-U' processor (6C / 12T, 1.60-4.70 GHz, 12MB cache, 15W TDP) with integrated UHD GPU 620.

The default configuration of the Cirrus7-SE music server is equipped with 16GB of DDR4-2666 memory, a 250GB Samsung 970 Evo SSD and the Roon Rock operating system optimized for media servers, but it is also possible to install Microsoft's most common Windows 10. The Udentia Cirrus7-SE music server has a standard set of ports and connections, which includes Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GbE, Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.0, an audio jack and an IR receiver. Although formally this PC is aimed at audiophiles, it can of course be used as a normal desktop PC or as a media server, especially when equipped with a high capacity 2.5 ”HDD or SSD. Undentia sells the Cirrus7-SE Music Server at the price of 14,950 Kr, equivalent to about 1,483 euros.

If you like NUCs, on Amazon you can find the NUC NUC8i7HVK with Core i7-8809G at an attractive price.
