I talked to the ELK, Russound Software Guru (ChrisRM) to get his opinion:
1. Was it pretty easy to setup? Very Easy. He said when he hooked up the Media Server, he put a CD into the drive and started reading the instruction manual to see how to rip the CDs and before he could find the instructions, the media server had ripped the CD and got the album art off the web automatically.
2. Are you able to link together to create more than 6 sources? Link up to 36 output zones with a total of 6 sources by adding more CAV/CAM6.6 distribution amps.
3. Did it work as advertised? Yes, very nice system.
4. Are you happy with the final product? Very happy. Will have the system in his house soon.
He had no reservations in any area. He said that he added some unique functionality to the ELKRM Russound Interface, like displaying album art.
He has interfaced ELKRM to Russound:
CAV/CAM 6.6 video music distribution amp,
a CD Changer with IR control from the CAV6.6
