The M1000 was the first SoundServer product conceived and manufactured by Imerge. It was cutting edge technology in 1999, capable of delivering up to 16 independent outputs of music with a staggering maximum storage capacity of 240Gb's.

Unlike its successors the M1000 did not have a TV interface, however it was still fully controllable via it's built-in LCD screen, IR control and implementation of the XIVALink communication protocol (RS232/TCPIP) making it highly integratable with many of the leading multi-room controllers of it's time.

To control the M1000 by IR you had to connect an RS232 IR Man to the rear of the product and set the serial port to IR rather than XiVALink communication.
