The NAS-CZ1 is a CD mini stereo system/network player. Equipped with an Ethernet port, it can easily access MP3, OMG, WAV, and WMA files stored on a PC and play them as streaming audio.
The designer envisioned users placing the device in various types of rooms because of its ability to freely access music stored on a PC anywhere. He therefore sought to create a compact design that would blend with interior décors and would not look out of place in any room in the house. The entire casing is covered by netting and has an oval shape, which evokes the idea of music radiating to express a wider scope of use than most audio equipment. As it looks good from any angle, it seems entirely at home placed right on a table or in the center of a room. The top features a smooth stainless steel part formed by drawing press, which conveys an unequivocal sense of luxury.
