As a delighted SB2 owner I am looking for a 2nd player but I notice some SB1's going on the 2nd hand market for reasonable money. Can anyone tell me, what are the differences with the SB1 & SB2 and am I going going to be depressed using a SB1 after using a SB2?

SB2 adds:
Much larger audio buffer
Higher resolution display
Better DAC (if you use analogue outs)
Faster processor
Native FLAC and WMA audio handling
Visualisers while playing
802.11g support
WPA support
Wake-on-lan support
(probably more that I'm missing)

Will you be depressed..? Maybe. Depends on which features you use and
what you
are paying for the SB1. Hopefully it is a graphics upgraded version. Original
SB1 had a character display, later updated to a bitmapped display.
