A good unit - could be improved slightly
on 19 September 2013
I was pleased with the "Used - Good" condition item from Amazon Warehouse - at £304. No real sign of use and a bargain (if I ignore the people who secured it for less than £200!).
The item itself is quality - I have used it mainly for iPhone/iPad Airplay and home network as well as DAB and a record player. Airplay is just very poor for me; cuts out a lot - due I'm sure to the location of my Belkin router relative to where I've got the HiFi. Music plays fine over ethernet (I use Powerline adaptors) - so I tend to use the iPhone with Sony's network media app to control playing music over the Home network (that is - DLNA from a NAS).
Can't disagree with the detailed positive reviews on here.
One gripe is that the settings (time and network) are not preserved across a power down. Why oh why can't the device set the time from the web or from DAB (like my much cheaper DAB radio set)? Not much to ask really.
