Sorry I have been away for a while, I actually have a Sonos bridge that I purchased last year planing to go with a Sonos system but never did. I have been looking at the Sonos connect. I know I could use my phone to stream to my receiver but that drains my battery. I would rather go with something I can just use my phone or laptop to control while I am working. thanks for all the input, with all the feed back I am getting with Sonos I think I will give it a try.
