Squeezebox Touch or 'Proper' Streamer?
Good Day To You All,
I'm at a crossroads where music streaming is concerned (and near to the point of shaking off iTunes dependency).
Until recently, all my music was stored on an ATV with a 1tb drive, being controlled by the Remote app on my iPad excellent for pumping tunes to another zone).
Recently i have become the proud owner of a Synology DS212j, which i have duly uploaded all of my media to.
Here lies the problem.
I have been looking at at the new breed of music streamers from the likes of Pioneer (very interested), Cambridge Audio, and Marantz, (all reviewed in the latest issue) to throw my music around the house. They all sound like they would do the job quite nicely, and all have decent iPad apps, which is a very important point for me.
I am reading lots of good things about the Squeezebox Touch.
I can't find a bad word being printed about it, the price is more than appealing (compared to the above mentioned items), and it's sound quality is 'stunning', and 'would keep most hi-fi buffs happy'.
I'm very tempted to buy one, but surely a dedicated streamer built by a 'proper' hi-fi company woud be a better bet, wouldn't it?
