ARC for ALL
The capabilities of this little jewel seem to far outway those of the Sonos. The weakest link seems to be the software interface, but since this seems to be the emerging cross platform / cross manufacturer choice, I think we can probably look forward to it becoming more refined and more capable - all available through software and firmware upgrades. Since PW devices are also DLNA compliant, they are also not subject to the 65000 track limitations of Sonos (which Sonos does not want to seem to acknowledge as an issue and is not indicating any plans on addressing in the near future.
Now there are two questions at hand, that seem to be the white elephant in the room that no one seems to answer:
1. What DAC does the Paradigm product use? Not a deal breaker since you can use the digital out to drive a high quality DAC of your choice (the new AudioQuest Beetle may be an early affordable candidate).
2. Since there is a pair of analog inputs for another source - why couldn't you run the Tape Out loop from your pre-amp into the analog inputs on the PW product and the Analog Outs into the Tape In which allow you to apply the ARC settings to every source in your system - essentially turning your favorite pre-amp, receiver or integrated into a an ARC corrected system? Has anyone tried this?
