    NOW on eBay
    Finally, a network music player that looks as good as it sounds! Roku SoundBridge plays your PC or Mac digital music files anywhere in the house – connecting your stereo or powered speakers to your computer’s digital music library. Or, listen to a variety of Internet Radio stations without even turning on your computer. WMA, MP3, AAC, AIFF and WAV music formats are supported — and it's network ready with wired Ethernet or Wi-Fi. A large, bright display, Apple Rendezvous® and iTunes®* support and Windows® Media Connect, Windows Media Player 10 and Windows Media DRM 10 support make the SoundBridge the most compatible music player around.

    These are fantastic units.
    There are many things you can treak on these.
    If you have a pda or smartphone, you can contrll the unit with that as well.

    Roku just upgraded the software to do many more things, yet to be listed on the web site including iTunes. You would need to go into the Roku forums to read all about it.

    This unit is new, although i had to open the package to clip the upc for a past rebate offer. I even updated the software for the buyer. It has the latest & greatest feature set.

    Have the world of music or news & talk radio in your home.
    All for FREE. No monthly fee's!

    Does it happen to work with Winamp, or do you have to play music with Windows Media pLayer?

    I use winAmp.
    Again, no computer needed if you just want to stream net radio
    You can also use a NAS drive as well
    it will also pass dts & dd via one of the digital outs
    Edit:
    If you look around the Roku forum, you will find some pictures were others installed these units into old type radios.
    The Sound Bridge kind of looks like a pipe bomb, but the units can be slid right out of the aluminum tube and then installed into what ever you want.
    The unit itself is self enclosed in a plastic like cylinder.
    The aluminum tube is just a enclosure.
