Cocktail Audio X10


With so many people turning to iPods or MP3 those –like me – who have large CD collections need a way to condense the output and this offering allows an easy way to transpose to WAV, MP3, Flac or Ogg Vorbis with little effort from you.

Two-way relationship with connected PC; choice of bittrate rips; small size; versatility

Sound quality; file support isn't total; no touchscreen operation

Those new to digital music, and those with a PC after somewhere to back-up a music collection could do worse than Cocktail Audio's networkable X10. Also available with a 1TB HDD, it's easy to use and spits out decent audio, though it will suit those...

Consumer review by: GypsyLaurie (



In general I'm pleased with this HDD and DVD recorder. It took me a couple of tries to record certain channels but I was able to resolve that issue by rescanning the channels. It has some features I may never use but I appreciate being able to record...
