I am after a stereo system that is be able to steam music over my local LAN, from my PC and NAS, directly from their native folders, without having to use software or an app. I would like the unit to be both Ethernet and WiFi capable. I do have a Logitech squeeze box device that I thought could do this, however more digging after i purchased it, proved that this feature is rather limited. Any help is appreciated. .
Micro system? Full sized amp? What speakers are you looking to run? Or are you after an all in-one mono dock that simulates stereo sound? Do you need a CD drive? Any particular inputs (RCA / optical / USB) or any outputs like subwoofer preout?
sorry are after a micro system, good question though, are there receivers that can output multi streams to different speakers in the home, i.e fm radio outside, kids music in the rumpus room and sport in the garage, all driven by the same receiver, or am i been too greedy? yes i know it wouldnt be cheap either.
For a micro system, the likes of a Denon Piccolo may work... it will have wifi / ethernet and can handle DLNA and Airplay which is cool. Give it a few years and Denon may put their multiroom wireless tech (Heos) into an AVR or micro system. But until now, you'd need something like Sonos with RCA inputs so you can stream from an RCA connection, as well as network connections. BUT it's all about software, sorry.
