Dune HD Duo

Dune HD Duo

Dune HD Duo is the uniquely equipped network media player. This model is oriented towards demanding customers who do not like compromised solutions or limitations related to home media library storage space and ease of access. For this purpose the engineers from Dune HD have equipped the Dune HD Duo with two hot swappable HDD racks for 3.5’’ SATA drives, which allows the Duo to reach the unprecedented internal storage space of 6 terabytes.


The Dune HD Duo utilizes the same advanced video processor by Sigma Designs (SMP8643) as the Dune HD Max. In addition to housing two internal HDD racks, the player has a slot for SD memory cards and three high-speed USB 2.0 ports for connecting external storage and extension modules.


One of the main features that distinguishes this media player from its competitors is its special compartment for extension boards. The compartment is located behind a panel at the rear of the media player. Digital TV boards, can be installed simultaneously.


The Dune HD Duo promises to be as successful as its predecessors which won all possible industry awards coming out on top in all comparative tests conducted by high profile technology publications around the world. Like the Dune HD Max, the Duo supports practically all audio and video formats. It is compatible with all types of “high-definition” sound formats (Dolby TrueHD, DTS HD Master Audio). Special notice should be taken of the extremely fast networking speeds, IPTV and Internet radio functions, as well as the built-in Internet browser. New functions and supported formats are brought to the Dune HD Duo with the regular release of firmware updates.
