Thanks - I'm network-dumb, as I've never had more than one machine at home.
I'll have more questions next week, after the holiday - but you've given me
a nice Xmas idea. I'm trying to get the folks at HydrogenAudio.org
interested in your product - there's a lot of audiophile types there, and
the fact that you get 44.1 out of the digital outs, with no upsampling,
should turn a lot of heads there, if they can bear to step back from their
expensive PC audio cards. ;)
Have a good holiday.
Erik
