This product looks like something I really need :-) Like some of you
folks on the list, my music collection is largely stored on a computer.
Its great when I want to listen next to the computer, but not so great
when I want to listen from other rooms. For example, buying a CD from
iTunes and listening to it upstairs means physically burning a CD,
which is what I was trying to get away from in the first place.
This little gadget claims to be the equivalent of a radio receiver for
your own wi-fi radio server running Windows, OSX, or Linux. Sure, you
could get an FM transmitter for your computer's audio output, but then
how would you select songs from a different room? You can also plug a
USB hard drive into it, and it will act as a streaming server as well.
So far the only gotcha I can see is its unclear whether it supports the
encrypted ACC and Windows media files.
