Imho especially the option to stream from virtually any device directly to the speakers is very charming...

I will try to dive into this whole openhome/songcast concept a little more and play around with it to see how it goes. I'll probably raise some more questions later on then Smile

The only possible issue with this type of audio proxy is is that it'll introduce extra latency so may be problematic for content that has already had its delay tuned to synchronise with video. We've found that 70 - 100ms delay is required to cope with devices connected via either wireless or homeplug. Delays over 50ms are likely to be noticeable by at least some users.
