Retails for $300 and has full two way meta data similar to the sonos but without the need of the extra vegetables driver.
The Sony recvrs have built in control4 controllers in them, giving you a reciever along with a hc250 all in one. Better used for a one room system or theater room using the Sony to run speakers.
For the operation of what you are using probably need at least an hc800 to control and handle the processing and perhaps some hc250 depending on the size of the house.
thanks.. I saw the control4 wirelss music bridge http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hpOrnAg-EE
but it doesn't look like the pandora is integrated into it, rather it streams off of another device like your iphone or ipad. It looks like it's going to require a few more extra steps to listen to a pandora station. click listen, music bridge, then dlna, then pandora??
Looks like the extra vegetables driver for sonos although expensive has really created a seamless experience to listen to pandora, slacker, spotify etc by using the sonos bridge. So I don't have to rely on the ipad or iphone as a source. Am I understanding these things correctly?
Why didn't control4 make their wireless music bridge to connect directly to pandora rather than thru an intermediary device?
I just read the extravegetable driver also can use sonos devices like the soundbar or play 3 as a control4 zone? that's pretty cool.
I watched this extra vegetable youtube video of how to add playlists from sonos to control4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BnsTXXnkl0&list=UUA1JKz4LwpkBMy21Rn41RPw&index=1
looks pretty flexible.
has anyone seen the control4 music bridge?
