If you're tired of being beaten to the punch when it comes to having impressive music gadgets, get an Escient FireBall E-120. This state-of-the-art system will leave your friends embarrassed for having endlessly bragged about their super-slim iPods. Such joy has a price - $3,000 to be exact.The E-120 was created after CD fanatics flipped over those 200-plus disc changers, which ultimately proved to be a hassle. The 120 (as in, 120GB of memory) hooks to compatible changers and transfers all tracks onto its hard drive. CDs can also be ripped directly from the single drive on the device. In total, it holds about 1,800 hours of music. Through the web, the album, artist, and track names are automatically recognized and appear on the 120's display. By connecting to a TV, users can manage music files from a remote or keyboard. A picture of the CD cover even appears. It's as if you're in front of a huge version of one of those record-store devices that let you preview music. The verdict: The Mercedes of music management. Any questions?
