Hey Robert - I think your question was probably addressed to @TonyD but for my part, I'm just not a fan of proprietary anything. For my modest wireless music needs, Bluetooth streaming works just fine. If I want multi-room functionality I can use my Google displays and speakers. It's certainly not an audiophile quality solution but it works for me.What don't you like about HEOS? We use it in our a/v showroom and my home.
With a positive recommendation from you Robert, I don't doubt it since I know you're serious abut your toys. To clarify, I've never actually used HEOS and fear I might try it and like it. If that were to happen then I would have yet another funnel to pour my money down. Can't take the chance!John and Tony, please try HEOS again. I like the user interface and find it easy to use and navigate. HEOS's Wi Fi streamed audio performance is appreciatively better than Bluetooth and you will enjoy the better fidelity and clarity.
