How is the user interface? That is what makes Sonos so appealing. If it's well thought out these make sense.

That's cool - I've been wondering how long it would take for the hardware manufacturers to start making gear that is computer / network "aware". It seems like it has really hit stride in 2007. I owned a Denon receiver in the past, and it's very nice gear for its design, and this is a great addition to the functionality.
Now we need a manufacturer to figure out how to go buy a j river or media monkey interface.
"must be non-copyrighted (no ripped CDs - crazy!!)."
If I might ask, who has non-copyrighted music and how does the player know if the music has been copyrighted? I believe all music, whether registered with the government as a copyrighted piece or not, is copyrighted by the creator.

Chris, right - one has a copyright in their original work of authorship, regardless of whether they register. The receiver checks DRM for ripped song. Music downloaded from pay sites and CDs ripped to WMA format will have DRM. The manual mentions WMA, but doesn't specifically mention whether CDs ripped to WAV will have a problem. So, ripped WAV files may be OK after all. Haven't tried it yet.
