The DS Metronome Technology project is about creating a full range of Hi-Fi devices for an audiophile audience. The Metronome Technology Company is designing and manufacturing by hand all the material to ensure highest quality of sound.The range includes a player, a server, a converter, a power supply and a remote control designed like a system. Also, each device must make its function readable in the sound production chain. The project's approach has been to give a sensitive face to an electronic technology. A singular piano keyboard device for controlling the devices engages a gesture that reconnects to the touch of an analog musical instrument. Another major challenge lies in the production scenario in which 90% of the parts produced are common to all types of devices. The overall structure is designed as a chassis on which specific parts are placed according to the nature and role of the device in the range. The economic approach of the design articulates an optimization of the processes with the qualities of an artisanal manufacture.

The design of server CTRL is continuity of the approach engaged with the computer Alt.
The bias of reusing the trunk of the computer echoes a desire for economy of industrial resources, as well as material and energy implemented for its production. Both entity and core of the network, the server can be used alone or clustered in multiple configurations: wall hanging, storage in a rack, stack or alignment.Adaptability of installation and possibility of dividing the servers solves a major cause of energy expenditure that is cooling the heat generated by this type of material.
