I saw a blog review of the SoundBridge M1001 (out-of stock), and bought this thing instead.
* hated the menu system at first sight * Don't want/need internet radio * Doesn't handle ogg * Cheap-and-nasty rubbery stand * No WPA, so I have to downgrade my wireless network security * Requires UPnP, so I have to downgrade my PC security even further * Requires Windows Media Player/Server, so I have to have sluggish trash running on my PC
I was expecting: WPA; the option of a wired ethernet interface; and normal Windows remote shared folder access to find the music, via a web interface; long network password setup via cut-and-paste into a web interface rather than left-right up-down arrows in a crippled 2-line "screen" (but, of course, as there's no effective wireless security, this one doesn't really matter).
The only reason I didn't send it back was that I should have taken more care before ordering. Not Amazon's fault, then, but don't buy one anyway.
