I'm pretty sure it can't because I don't think you can load anything on its hard disk except music. And to stream to the SB you need to run slimserver.

Incredibly expensive for what you get. You can assemble a comparable Squeezebox based system for much less and it will be more customizable and upgradeable in the future. The internal hard drive is also going to be noisy, despite their claims of it sitting on a "8x bearing" whatever that is :-)

Assuming he already has a computer, of course.

The opus is $3000. He could buy several computers and still come out richer.

Ouch. I put together a bespoke 400Gb slimserver PC which is near silent and looks great in my hi-fi rack for around 700...
