Squeezebox Classic - Touch

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I'm just getting my system back together after HT remodel. While I am still waiting for new display and speakers I'm pretty much up and running with old gear. Also new is Denon 4311CI.

I am about 50/50 music/movies, but tend to fret more about music quality and accuracy than I do movie material. I added back my old Squeezebox classic (coax) and streamed from both MOG and Spotify, supposedly 320kb/s stream and was really disappointed in the sq, which leads me to believe that the classic is somewhat crippled in its ability to play back sources at this bitrate? I can't imagine this being the case.

Are there alternatives with as much community support (and wealth of streaming options) to the Logitech Squeezebox?

Thanks in advance.

If you are connected to the Denon with coax i.e. digital I doubt very seriously that updating to another streamer will make a difference. Playing a 320kb/s stream is a walk in the park for any streamer even the Classic SB. I have two Classics, two Duets and one Touch, for internet streaming they all sound the same. Now with lossless sources you might be able to hear a difference with the Touch especially if you use the analog outputs or a 24/96 source.

Might want to check your net connection too. In other words I don't think it is the SB but rather the source. Have you had a chance to fire up the server and listen to lossless yet?
