Transporter. Supposedly the world's first network music player for lovers of pure music. The system costs £1080 ($2000) and offers 'better audio output than a CD player' say it's maker.
I was sceptical at first, but apparently it can easily stream not so good quality MP3, AAC and WMA standards, which are all simply compressed versions of original songs. But what it claims, is that it can stream WAV and FLAC files just as easily. Silm Devices, the U.S. manufacture says that they believe it will sell very well despite the price because "Music lovers everywhere are investing alot of money to rip their files at more than simple 128kbps MP3. Many people do not realise what a compromise they are making when ripping CDs into formats such as MP3." I think that this could be the way forward personally, but not if it costs as much as it does. If it weren't for the price, we'd buy it.
