Olive Media has been making popular music systems since 2005, but its new One Music Player aims to revolutionize the home music listening experience.

Olive's One Music Player has recently launched on crowdsourcing site Indiegogo. The all-in-one music player sports a 7-inch touch screen is a rounded shape, making the whole gadget look like a hockey puck. One integrates into the user's home Wi-Fi network, recognizes and indexes all music on their computer, and can stream music through speakers right away.

Moreover, the all-in-one music player has Spotify, Pandora, and YouTube streaming apps built-in, and can also stream music from iTunes Match, Amazon Locker, and Google Play. According to Olive Media, the player provides "audiophile sound quality."

Users can control the player from the touch screen, as well as remotely from a TV via Miracast standard, or through apps for iOS and Android. Olive Media took it to crowdsourcing platform Indiegogo to fund the project, explaining that this approach "better connects companies to customers."

"So why are we asking for your help? The answer is simple: We believe the idea behind Olive One is big - too big for our existing audiophile channel," states the Indiegogo page for the project.

Everyone who backs One's campaign will be included in the voting process and will get a say in some decisions later in the development process, including what speakers, light boxes, skins, and custom covers the gadget should use.

"We want to built ONE to YOUR specification: Now only should you be able to get ONE in your favorite color and pattern, but also with the features you want," touts the Indiegogo page. "The hard- and software platform of ONE is very powerful. So powerful that we cannot envision all its possibilities. We want you to be part of our development team, and help us realize its potential."

Olive expects to start shipping its all-in-one music player sometime in summer 2013, with a $399 price tag. One versions packing a hard drive will sell at $499 for 1TB, and $599 for 2TB. In addition, the company also pledged to make an SDK available in May for app developers for the platform.
