The Squeezebox touch manages more or less the same functionality including 24-bit/96kHz FLAC in a much smaller physical footprint for about 60% of the cost. And supports Spotify.

Completely agree with above - Squeezebox is the way to go. I tried using UPnP and it's a total fail with anything but the smallest of music libraries.

Looking at the unit I'm guessing they're going for a more techphobic crowd and selling on the sound quality. To me the pixel display is unnecessay as is the remote as I'd much rather use a smartphone app as the controller.

I would imagine this would have an edge over squeezebox in terms of sound quality as the components are first rate but no napster/spotify is a deal breaker for me.

Yeah, this ^. The Squeezebox has traditionally been aimed at a more techy, less audiophiliac crowd.

That's not to say that it produces a bad sound. The Squeezebox Touch features the same Wolfson DAC as found in many high-end CD players and streamers. It may not sound as good as the NP30, but I'd wager it's not far off, and a bargain at the price.

There is great news: The RECENT new firmware release supports SPOTIFY !! Tested this week and it works perfect using an IPad with the spotify app. Great!
