The files are then selected via the three button front panel controls or by the supplied IR remote control. Navigation of your music catalog; artists, albums, track and playlists can be monitored on the high contrast LCD front panel display and random or shuffle play is available. Gold-plated stereo analog RCA and a SPDIF digital outputs easily interface the Media Box S to your amplifier or DAC. An outboard power supply powering both the unit and USB drives, is included.
