Brennan JB7 - Revolutionary HiFi
The Brennan JB7 is simply a better way to enjoy your music.
- JB7 holds your entire CD collection on a hard disk to give you instant access to any of your music and play unbroken music for as long as you want.
- You can choose and play an album or track without getting out of your chair.
- You get to see what is playing from across a room.
- One button plays your entire music collection at random - another turns it off - its what you need when its late and you just want to unwind.
JB7 will re-awaken your passion for music. It will make you feel like a teenager again.
Amazing things happen when you listen to your music on JB7
I re-discovered that I loved Van Morrison. I mean how did that happen? I'd somehow forgotten that I loved Van Morrison. I have a handful of his CDs but somehow when I saw the words on the side of a CD on a shelf it did nothing to me.
Once I had my JB7 I was just scrolling through the albums from the sofa and I thought I haven't heard Van for a while so I pressed play. It was like discovering a twenty dollar bill in an old pair of jeans or having a cup of coffee made by a friend.
The next thing you know I'm on Amazon browsing for more CDs.
JB7 packs a dynamite 60W amp in a package the size of a book. It has a vibrant blue soft scrolling display and convention defying yet classy blue styling. Get your friends round - show off!
There is nothing like JB7 at the price. Its not just great in the home - JB7 has been picked up by restaurant, bar and shop owners because it delivers hassle free non-stop music. No computer no network.
Your CD collection probably cost you thousands, it can make you cry or make you sing and dance but its doing nothing for you on the shelf.
On a practical note - if you want to brighten up your living room - the Brennan lets you enjoy your music and create some space. Even 100 CDs can make a room look cluttered.
3.1x Faster than Sony
If you are going to load your CD collection onto a hard disk you really need the loading process to be as quick and simple as possible. If it takes too long its no fun and its too easy to give up.
The Brennan has a high performance CD mechanism, a powerful Digital Signal Processor (DSP) and streamlined software to slash loading times.
In a test we loaded a CD album by David Gray onto a Sony Gigajuke and the Brennan JB7. The Sony took 11 minutes and 27 seconds. The Brennan 3 minutes 39 seconds.
Brennan v Goliath - the JB7 is one fifth the size yet three times faster!
Revitalize your Vinyl
JB7 lets you transfer your collection of Vinyl (or cassettes for that matter) onto hard disk so that you can save precious recordings and play them just as easily as tracks loaded from CDs. Find out more
The future of music
You can now choose from a million CDs from the likes of Amazon and Play.com at half the price they used to be.
Its hard to believe but Napster - the original peer to peer music sharing network at the start of the MP3 revolution - is now almost ten years old - and we are all still coming to terms with the change.
After years of illegal file sharing new legal ways to download MP3s are emerging. You can now buy MP3s from Amazon and from Walmart.
To play MP3s on the Brennan just copy them from your computer onto a USB memory stick and plug it into the Brennan. You can play the music directly from the USB or copy the files onto the Brennan hard disk. The Brennan text search will find the track just the same.
We think CDs are going to be around for a lot longer than often predicted but it makes sense to have a player that works as well with CDs as MP3s.
How many CDs do you own?
We've had a lot of e-mails from people with 1000 CDs or more. We're interested
to know how many CDs people own but couldn't find much info on the web so
we decided to do our own survey.
It will be more statistically meaningful if more people respond so let us know whether you own 20 CDs or 2,000. Its anonymous and takes about 15 seconds. We'll publish the results when we have enough replies.
Initial results show that the most common CD collection is around 300 CDs but the average number of CDs is 1100 because so many of you own 1000's of CDs.

"Huge fun to use...a great talking point"
Watch the videos!
OK we're not going to win any Oscars but these early videos we did with a prototype JB7 give you an idea just how radical, quick and simple the Brennan really is.
This a true 21st Century hi-fi component. One of the best hi-fi components for digital music.
Lewis Caliburn, The Register
This system is absolutely excellent at providing a simple way to load and manage your music collection without needing a PC...
The built in amplifier coupled with Brennan's own speakers provide beautiful clear quality sound regardless of your listening tastes.
Peter Wilson - Gadgetspeak
Small wonder: newcomer Brennan's JB7 is a knockout.
Dan George, Techradar
"After sales support like you've never experienced in the digital world. When you have a problem with Windows does Bill Gates get back to you and offer to talk you through it? I don't think so."
Henry, Sydney Australia
"I bought one of your JB7's the other day, which is not like me to buy something from a company I do not know, but saw the ad on facebook, checked out your website and I just had to have one.
Delivered very quickly, and I must say what a fantastic bit of kit it is.
The sound quality from the speakers, which I also bought from you, is amazing...
...Again, may I say how brilliant the system is, as they say, it does everything it says on the label....fantastic.
Phil, Milton Keynes
Massive CD database
The chart shows how the 2.4 million CD database divides into ten broad categories. The classical genre alone contains 250,000 CDs - that's 1.5 miles of different CDs side by side.
