    What product you'd like to see next

    An obvious question maybe.

    I personally would love to see a hybrid Boom/Touch, only with physical (and backlit) buttons like the Boom, with IR remote. Like the Radio but with awesome sound.

    I'd suggest the "Touch Plus" which would be a full (or half) rack width device with a WIDER (and more legible screen), high quality DAC, better analog output section, and both RCA and balanced outputs. Price it below the Transporter (say $600-700), and it will beat the pants off the Olive, Meridian/Sooloos, and other (forthcoming) streaming devices in that market segment.

    erm... the analogue output section of the Touch is already very
    good...

    I'd still like to see a 2-part Touch with detachable screen and wi-fi
    (to use as a controller) - and larger screen of course... keep all of
    the audio in the "docking/charging station" + twice as much CPU and RAM
    as the current model

    +1, controller version 2

    on my wish list is

    - battery life (at least 4h)

    - display size and quality


    One question to you guys, would you prefer the display to be landscape or portrait ?
