I have just been informed that à dedicated iPad app is in development and gapless playback will be enabled by the next update!!
Yes, both developments are 'in the pipeline' although we don't have a date for the next software release yet.
Bring on party mode and the ability to push to Roomplayers and I'll be in the market.
I would have thought the mainstream solution was the Squeezebox Touch which has been able to play 24/96 HiRes since it was introduced.
Your report seems to miss this point.
AFAIK this unit isn't yet able to play gapless. The review oddly never mentions this as yay or nay.
No, we only tested it using the built-in amp. We had a pair of Roomplayer 1 units running as a two-zone system – we haven't tested the Roomplayer II (without amp) yet.
Thanks Andy. Do you have plans to test the Roomplayer II? If so, will you also try it with some external DACs?
We can certainly ask for one
Did you test it through another amp i.e. as if it were a Roomplayer 2? I'm just wondering where the weakness might be.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 performs significantly better than its predecessor but has pressing issues with its interface, sound and picture quality
Good but not great – and that’s not quite enough at this hugely competitive price for AV receivers
The Caterthun has strengths but we expect a more rounded product at this price
