The Revolution III, like all Baetis servers, uses JRiver Media Center, the best media playing software. The Baetis computer can rip and play CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs. And it can play any audio file format, including professionally ripped SACDs, downloaded PCM and DSD files (the audio format in SACDs), either in 2-channels or multi-channel, and at any sampling rate or bit depth. For the audiophile who likes to watch and listen to multi-channel concerts or movies, the Baetis also produces video that is world-class. Baetis servers are the ONLY audiophile/videophile computer with two (2) separate HDMI outputs. This is necessary when the user’s world-class multi-channel pre/pro does not do a truly great job at isolating video from audio. In some cases, the pre/pro’s audio AND its video are greatly enhanced via sending only MCh audio to the pre/pro via HDMI output #1, and sending video directly to the projector via HDMI output #2. It doesn’t matter if you are a 2-channel-only enthusiast, or a multi-channel lover, or someone with both a good DAC and a good pre/pro in your room – the Baetis line-up of servers provides the very best audio and video – better than even the most highly acclaimed universal disc players.

Features of the Baetis™ Revolution III

It is important to note that ALL Baetis media computers have the same capabilities. It is the differences in hardware -- motherboards, daughterboards, hi-def audio codecs on the motherboards, RAM type and speed, and type of audio output (e.g., AES versus SPDIF) that account for the major differences in audio quality. You will hear this difference (between, say, a Baetis Revolution III and a Baetis Reference) on a good DAC or pre/pro. As the quality of the DAC or pre/pro rises, the difference in the audio quality becomes greater.

  1. We install in every Baetis the JRiver™ Media Center software (latest version installed and included in the price). This software will play ANY format of audio or video in 2-channels or multi-channels. We set up JRiver for YOUR own system, so there is no guess work. We can also install Roon™ music software if you wish to compare it to JRiver; or Musichi™ software.
  2. An option is the installation of dBPoweramp™ CD ripping software. Only this software uses the Ultra Secure™ double-checking ripping process. This is NOT your Daddy’s free iTunes™ ripping software.
  3. We can answer most questions about your home network, routers, etc, as well as your digital cabling.
  4. Our Mastering Digital Audio™ training and support is critical to learning how to make today’s media server do anything you wish. We are the only high-end audio/video maker to get online and show you how to move the cursor on the screen to accomplish any of the following goals. This is a MUCH better training process than simply reading a boring manual.
  1. Any internet streaming of audio and video, at the best levels of quality, not just Tidal™, Pandora™, Spotify™, etc., but also Amazon™ and Netflix™ movies. Anything. We love the Berlin Philharmonic live concerts on Saturdays, followed by an NFL game on Sunday.
  2. Any ripping of any type of disc (except SACDs which must be ripped professionally). Blu-ray and DVD ripping are accomplished by Makemkv™ software, which we show you how to purchase and install.
  3. All the necessary outputs HDMI, DVI, VGA, for video to any kind of monitor or projector, and SPDIF, USB, Toslink, AES, and HDMI for audio to any kind of DAC or multi-channel audio processor you may have. We actually have the operating manuals for most of the major brands and models of DACs and pre/pros, and can solve most major connectivity issues.
  4. Download high-definition audio or audio/video from any internet site, including HDTracks™, Linn™ records, BlueCoast™, and all the others.
  5. You may use an Android or iOS tablet or phone to control your Baetis , choosing an album or movie just with a tap of your finger.

  6. The Baetis Revolution III model’s sound beats ANY other music server or streamer, including our low cost-to-value models (Prodigy by Baetis). Its audio is beaten only by the Baetis Reference, and the video of the two are about the same!!
