Well, That Was Easy!
So, the box of goodies from Amazon arrived on my desk today. I could barely restrain myself from unpacking the box and doing the setup process there and then.
Eventually, the hours dragged by and, after we had eaten, I was able to unpack my new bargainous Squeezebox Touch and start connecting it up. Hats off to Logitech: it was a painless and intuitive process that took ten minutes at the very outside. It quickly found what it needed on the home network and we were away - linked to the Uniti via a good pair of RCA cables.
I was a bit worried when I first loaded an album off the Synology NAS because the SBT recognised three copies of each track, but it's nifty enough to recognise that it only needs to actually play one! Very easy to use and sounds good too. Yes, thus far I am very pleased with my purchase. I now need to explore the various options.
What I would really like to be able to do is display and control via the TV or my laptop. Nope, I don't possess an iPad or "have an app for that"!
