The Evolve LifeStation, created in conjunction with Applied Product Design, receives top marks from leading HiFi magazine, What HiFi.
Online PR News – 10-January-2011 – – The bi-monthly Ultimate Guide from leading audio equipment magazine What Hi-fi’s has heaped praise on Passive Technologies’ Evolve LifeStation, a top performing media centre that has successfully bridged the gap between looks and capability. The system has been designed and manufactured in the UK with the expertise of Applied product design.
The review provides an in-depth analysis of the system, highlighting its dual-core i3 processor technology, its Blu-ray and DVD playing capability, its Freesat and Freeview tuners as well as its comprehensive TV timeshifting feature. The system has the capacity for a large amount of storage space, if required, and can deliver full quality 24 fps 1080p Blu-ray video – something the review says is not common among many of the system’s rivals.
The review illustrates the media centre’s ability to be operated within an existing TV or audio set-up, or to function alone. According to the review, it supports every popular sound format and also supports analogue S/PDIF audio.
Passive technologies approached Applied Product Design with the concept for the Evolve LifeStation, a company that has extensive experience in developing products and organising their manufacture. The Evolve LifeStation drew on Applied Product Design’s long-standing experience in bringing hi-end technology to market, cost effectively and ensuring the highest quality. The company is well known for its connection with BBC Television’s Dragon’s Den, helping to develop the Dry Iceblade product which appeared on the show.
The Evolve LifeStation received five stars in the What Hi-fi Ultimate Guide review and retails at £3800.
