it can be a little slow finding a particular song as you don't have text searching capability and it can be a little slow updating
however, if you want to play an album or just listen to music and skip over a song or two it will work out just fine
airplay also works quite well and the zone control with the iOS device or android is almost a must
the SC-55 is also a player and renderer under DLNA which means if you have a DLNA server, you can use your iPAD as a DLNA remote and select wich songs you want to play, thereby bypassing the home media gallery (HMG) interface
or you can use HMG from iControlAV2 to play songe from your DLNA server which is pretty cool if you just want to listen to all of your music
you can also use icontrolAV2 to control playing of Pandora, Rhapsody, and internet radio which is a very nice feature too
There are limitations with iControlAV2, such as not being able to do any of the setup functions, not creating a pandora station or entering account information, etc.
