    Difference between Squeezebox 3 and a Touch

    Hi,

    Might seem a daft question but i am wondering whether it might be possible to upgrade a SB3 to a touch. Reason being is that i have a SB+ which uses the guts of an SB3 and improves the digital output, that I would like to get up to 24/96 and use with an external DAC. I am currently only interested in Redbook as the DAC is a Perpetual Technologies P1/P3a but am thinking down the line. Am i being daft?

    Regards

    Chris

    Upgrade is easy. Find a second hand Touch on eBay or site of choice. Buy.

    Yep, Buy a TOUCH, as suggested, or make your own with a Rpi and screen and PiCorePlayer software.

    An option of course :-)

    The SB+ is an upgraded version of the SB3 http://free-12415f14c3a-124e539428a-...ce.com/sb_plus

    What I'm considering is whether it could itself be upgraded to allow 24/96 et al

    Regards
