Wondering why is streaming music becomes such a big deal lately (or it seems that way). From Pre/Pros, Universal players, consoles it seems all of these gears need to have this feature. I've been streaming music/video from xbox360 for more than a couple years. And then I added the ability to stream from iTunes via Apple Airport Express. Next, DirecTV added a feature to do that from the DVRs. I bought a Marantz Pre/Pro that is a Network preamplifier, which has this functionality (it wasn't the reason why I bought it though). Next, Oppo BDP-83.
So, in my current system, I can stream music/video/slideshow from 5 different path. Isn't that a rather redundant number of ways to stream? Out of these gears, and the sad part is: I still having problem to stream .flac from any of these gears.
