Escient Fireball DVDM-100

 

Review summary As suggested by the $1,999 list price of its DVDM-100 DVD and music manager, Indianapolis-based Escient specializes in the rarefied territory of high-end home entertainment systems. Targeted squarely at individuals with large DVD and CD...

Organizes up to 1,200 DVDs and CDs into categories such as genre; automatically retrieves DVD and CD information from the Internet; streams Internet radio; has refined TV-based interface; easy to set up; stable and fun to use.

Little standalone functionality; DVD/CD changer support limited to a few Sony and Kenwood models; streams only one file format (MP3), from compatible Escient products; doesn't stream audio from networked PCs; doesn't support Rhapsody on-demand...

Escient FireBall DVDM-100 DVD and Music Manager

 

One of the benefits of talking about home theater all day every day is that I get to hear people ask questions like this: "I'd buy a DVD megachanger if there were a way to keep track of my hundreds of discs, but what choice do I have?" Apparently, the...

So, is it worth spending $2,000 for an add-on component to an $800 DVD changer? I would not attempt to enjoy a 400-disc megachanger without a tamer, and the alternative of plugging in a keyboard to enter even basic info by hand isn't an option,...
