View Full Version : TO SEAN,

I can answer a few of these.

1>There are two branches in the software, one for SB1 and another for SB2.
So both units should be supported although both units might not have the
same features.

2> My SB1 plays Live365 through the SPDIF connection so I'm not sure what
you mean.

3> The SB2 has a superior Burr Brown DAC compared to the Cyrus DAC on SB1

3?> SB2 can receive internet radio with no local server, SB1 cannot do this.

3??> Slim Devices has said no SB2 will be shipping until March 31st. There
are few local dealers and there will be a backlog on early orders, so the
chances of your friend being able to receive one in Kentucky by April 5th
are very slim.
