"Finally the death of the CD Changer"5.0 starson by eugeneharvey
Pros: Easy setup, accept WAV (Lossless) ripped using MediaPlayer, great touch interface
Cons: Have had issues with SB Power-Off not working and requiring reset to factory setting to fix.
Summary: I am pleased to say this is the device I have been searching for to finally replace my CD Player. It's not often a product exceeds your expectations but this has. To replace my CD player, all I wanted, and I didn't think it was going to be a challenge, was a playback device that would play back WAV (lossless) CD Images ripped using Microsofts Media Player to an external USB Hard Drive that would include a remote and graphic display (let alone the touch Screen that this has). And it was as easy as that, I am burning CD's to an USB HD, plugging it into SqueezeBox, and SB does it all ! Launch the SqueezeBox app in the device, it scans the HD, builds a library file on the HD, and all the folders, Art and Song Titles all come through and are easily accessed by the touch screen and remote. But most importantly the sound quality, using a coax digital out into a Marantz 7300 OSE through to Dynaudio Audience 82's the sound was pretty good. Through some older Jamo707's even better as they have been well and truely run-in. The sound on the Dynaudio's was a little 'bright', especially on vocals, but still close to CD Quality. Reading another review they suggested a DAC. And so I did. I added a DacMagic from Cambridge Audio, and WOW. Not only was the music quality close to CD quality, it was better. The CD player was an old DENON Alpha Processing DCM460, an oldy but a goody, and now retired.
