OK, if you guys peer into your crystal balls, do you think we're going need a controller that has the capability to handle purely digital sources in the future?
Meaning, Sonos is a popular source for streaming music and has both a coax and optical output, but most WHA controllers I find use analog RCA input for their sources. Sure there's higher end controllers (e.g. Zektor), but I don't see many low to mid-range WHA solutions (e.g. NuVo, HTD, etc). I certainly understand why--cost.
The reason I'm asking is that I'm already going to have to replace a WHA system that I'm sure was great in 2007, so I'd like to find a system that has some upgrade path or at least won't have to be replaced completely in another 5 - 7 years.
Or am I completely missing something here?
