The dream would be a single server application streaming FLAC's, ripped DVD's and ripped Blu-Ray's to the network and our iPhones (music only). The hardware dream would be a single box which can play all that off network and do alternate duty between stereo and home-theater serving superb front speakers and movie-grade surround speakers.
The reality seems to be - an integrated home theater receiver fed by a duet and a networked Blu-Ray player. But before I do that I want to get an idea of what it would take to incorporate an almost-Transporter-level stereo quality into a home theater setup.
Many devices promise to play various media files but need a separate streaming application besides the two I already use - Squeezebox server and Simplify Music for streaming to our phones. The navigation is not at all elegant. A duet is far better.
If this takes me into separates, then I assume the DAC in a Transporter becomes redundant and I could just use a duet.
My PC sound setup (in signature) is extremely satisfying but the home theater location is more suited to listening with others. I suppose everyone here has addressed this issue in some way. Any pointers to simplify will be very helpful.
