Vortexbox appliance - experiences, feedback, etc?
« on: March 03, 2014, 03:26:20 PM »
(Search is broken and nothing on the first two pages, sorry).

Has anyone bought or built one? Did it work as well as you had hoped? I'm thinking about it and I'm looking for a new home media streaming solution that works with the following and the vortex box/squeezebox receivers came up on the list:

- gapless playback (I gather this is a player-specific issue and not the server, please correct me if I'm wrong)
- respects replaygain tags
- at least one player (or the server itself) has a spdif coax/optical out.
- bonus points if it will transcode to mp3 or something like it on the fly for remote listening.

edit: forgot the 4th point.
