The first audio server ever, that was developed to be perfect to the last detail. A result of combining knowledge and experience in High-End manufacturing and passion for music.

Operation and control of features and settings are adjusted on the build in 7” High Definition Touchscreen using software developed specifically for this purpose.

The Beast can be fully used and operated without access to the internet.

No computer is needed and the unit can be used as soon as you take it out of the box. The server comes with its dedicated integrated ripping station and special ripping software. 


The Operating System, Control Software and library software are all Linux based and written by our own engineers and have been optimized over the last 12 years. For the metadata, the server is connected to the Licensed Data base library from GRACENOTE.

This impressive piece of high-end technology has a stable and zero resonance chassis fully made out of high-grade aluminum.

Each of the main components of the server has its own dedicated sealed enclosure to prevent any interference and guarantees a perfect protection from distortions. Wire paths are optimized and are located inside sealed enclosures.

THE BEAST is available with internal storage of 0.96 TB or 1.92TB SSD. When adding a NAS drive to the system it is possible to add as much external storage as needed. Our own special software allows you to decide whether new media files are stored internally or externally. That means high-end recordings can be stored on the internal SSD and the lower quality files on an external storage (NAS only).

By adding a ReQuest Film Player, THE BEAST can be used for video play-back and storage (NAS recommended). The Beast can rip and store both DVD and BLU-RAY formats.

THE BEAST can be fully integrated into a custom installation system through a serial port or over IP. For all available control systems (CRESTRON/AMX/CONTROL4/KNX…) 2-way interfaces are available. The user-friendly interface makes it easy to set up and control the server.

Our user friendly web browser Interface allows easy editing of Metadata and can be used to configure THE BEAST. The built-in interface allows to control the server from any mobile device or Computer (browser must support HTM5).

Another unique service is our own online support system - ARQ LINK. Over the years we have developed a reporting system to monitor our products. The daily reporting from each BEAST guarantees a perfect support and unmatched customer service.

Arq-Link  allows each client to login from anywhere in the world to his BEAST and add Music (even uploading music) or editing data on the server. THE BEAST’s many unique functions can be customized for each individual user.

It is possible to synchronize multiple iTunes libraries in both ways (export and import), this way iTunes may be used as an editing software.

The server will encode each media into lossless formats such as WAV or FLAC and simultaneously it can encode a MP3 file for syncing and streaming purposes. The server will always play the lossless file.The MP3 files can be streamed to any mobile device inside the network or even via the internet. The same thing can be done with movies.

THE BEAST can synchronize music in full format with customer’s other BEASTs or ReQuest Audio products in different locations. Each location then becomes a backup of the Master BEAST. When  adding music or editing a playlist on the Master BEAST, each other BEAST/ReQuest device of the same owner will have the same data in minutes.
