Guys, I just bought a Squeezebox Touch that I've been using with my Onkyo TX-SR605 receiver. I listen to a ton of internet radio (some subscription-based) and other internet-based sources of music. I like that the Touch can stream literally anything that I can send to it, and with the iPeng app to control it, I can send it random streams and MP3 links to podcasts from my iPhone (mostly from Soundcloud.com and blog sources) and it will play them instantly with no issues.
Have any of you been able to stream clips from Soundcloud.com on any of the Denon network-enabled receivers discussed here? I'm considering taking the Touch back and exchanging it for a Denon AVR-1912 or AVR-2112ci to get AirPlay (which the touch does not support), a cooler-running receiver with slightly better sound (the Onkyo gets very hot and I run it all the time when I'm home), as well as the ability to turn on/off and control the receiver from anywhere in the house with that Denon iPhone app.
The Squeezebox costs just under $300, and the 1912 and 2112ci are $400 and up online. What are your thoughts? Is the better sound, plus AirPlay support and full control of the receiver worth the extra money I'd spend to get one of the Denons?
