I have been dead set on a Squeezebox Touch for my HT rig downstairs to stream FLAC from my upstairs computer for a long time now.
I went to a hi-fi store last night to play around and saw a Sonos player. The Sonos interface was pretty cool, it does distributed audio through multiple zones quite well and wasnt too much more than a Touch. I did really like that it sets up its own network to communicate with other players so its not stealing any of your ISP bandwidth.
So now I am trying to figure out if I want to go with the Squeezebox or the Touch and need some help deciding between them.
For you guys who looked at both, what sealed the deal one way or the other for you? Is one DAC better than another?
The specific Sonos I would get to start with would just be the Connect. I would be hard-wiring either solution to my network as an FYI.
I look forward to the discussion that will soon unfold
**edit** just saw that Sonos only does 16 bit / 44.1 hz for FLAC.... that might be a killer right there......
