Hope you can give me some advice.
My parents (yes the ones who still don't understand how to operate the dvd player) have recently downsized their home and have had to get rid of their large stereo system and desk top computer.
In my infinate wisdom for ideas on space saving I have installed a wifi network, bought them a laptop then showed them how to put their CD collection on it..... yes I know, lots of phone calls of an evening explaining!
They would now like to have some type of stereo that they can move round the bungalow i.e from the kitchen diner to the living room using this new found technology.
My experience of this in my house consists of a NAS drive with 200GB of music stored in lossless format feeding a network AV amp on a wired network to a 7.1 system.
Took them down to Comet etc. to see what is available and was shocked at the limited selection of portable players available that can both receive wifi networked music/internet radio and play it through speakers within their budget of £250.
Hope you might be able to help?
