Re: High res download sites

this is a helpful thread, but apart from specific offers from each website it does seem the same high res "classics" are roughly the same price on all of these mentioned so far.

Re: Enhancement

by having proper demo he can find out what he might be getting much harder to do with speakers As he is using sonos as main source i think he might get what he needs from a single change. i.e. an aries mini, a raspberry pi, a bluesound node he should try things for himself, and hopefully use CU as a...
