    Hi, thanks for this contest, that sounds like a great device. I plan to hook it up in to my modest living room setup so the entire family can enjoy high-quality audio from our various devices. We love having a wide variety of music on while we all play together. It really livens up the Lego sessions!

    I'd hook it up to my preamp and play music from my uPnP source, and from my iOS7 devices.

    Hook this up to a modest system in the office, let the team fight over who gets to stream their playlist to it each day.

    This would feed my Marantz audio system via Apple AirPort Express. We all know that device needs all kinds of help. Thia would be a huge benefit.

    We would use it to stream our iTunes collection from various sources (tablets, phone, laptop) through our home theater in the family room, and onto our speakers on our back porch. Have a Denon amp with dual zones.

    I've spent the past 35 years spending much of my money obtaining a music collection I am proud of. It crosses musical genres from classical to classic rock, from country to Celtic, from bluegrass to R&B to jazz, with a little opera and Broadway musical thrown in. My CD collection numbers about 5,000 and the digital files on my computer continue to grow as well. But now it's time I focused on improving my listening enjoyment by upgrading my rather primitive sound system (some of which is analog), and this would be a step in the right direction.

    Sweet. I'd use it to stream from my iPad mini to my main stereo system. :)
