Cambridge NP30 review in Aug edition
I was reading the review of the Cambridge Audio NP30 in the latest edition of the magazine (great edition by the way, thoroughly enjoying it) and I couldn't help noticing that the Sonos ZP90 is kind of being ignored as a streaming device. The NP30 was cited as being the cheapest streaming device you've seen, at £400, whereas the Sonos ZP90 costs just £280 (assuming you utilise one of the free control options). The Sonos seems to be able to do everything that the Cambridge can plus is able to play ALAC files and has both Napster and Spotify integrated into it's control interface, which you noted "have yet to appear on streamers".
I'm not trying to have a poke and I certainly don't have any agenda here (I do use a ZP90 as my streamer, but believe me I'll be buying a Naim NDX as soon as I can afford one), I was just curious as to whether the Sonos is somehow disqualified from being considered 'a streamer' in this context?
