    I've been using the Roku SoundBridge M1000 and M2000 for over a year. Excellent products. I've run evaluation sessions for my "audiophile" crowd and uncompressed (AIFF) or Lossless content performance was indistinguishable from numerous high-end CD transports while connected digitally. It seamlessly works with iTunes and any UPnP AV standard compatible media servers.

    You can visit Roku's forums at http://www.rokulabs.com/forums/ for more information gathering.

    I got one a few months back and i love it! I have a long thread going about it here with the details on my install if you care to read about it but over all I'm been impressed with it. My wife uses it daily to stream radio and music to our livingroom so it can't be that difficult to use (not that she's dumb just not the most tech savvy)

    I've been using a Slim Devices Squeezebox 2 for a while, also a good choice.

    One thing about wireless, I thought I read that the Roku's are 802.11b only. The Squeezebox is compatible with b or g. It can also use WPA and WPA2, instead of WEP, for security, depending on your router.

    I might be mistaken, Roku owners please correct me if I am.
