I purchased this item because of its advertised ability to rip and store CDs. I have over 250 CDs in an player and wanted to be able to store them digitally. I found this unit very difficult to navigate. It comes with no manual so you have to go online try to find an answer to the simplest of questions. It will not simply play one CD and advance to the next; you must build play list, which I also found hard to navigate. For such an expensive unit, I cannot say it is worth the money. Customer support is minimally helpful. Would not recommend this product.
I bought mine with the assistance of Kevin in Magnolia at a Best Buy in NJ. He helped us out with many things & did a great job.
I have this set up with Bowers & Wilkins speakers. It has a terabyte of memory to store burned CDs but can stream music from my phone or iPad easily. Since it connects with Bluetooth and I walk away with my phone, I bought a cheap iPad just to have next to the equipment. I can stream Spotify, etc., from there. And guests can also easily select music, or connect with their own phones and play from their own apps & playlists.
Next: I want to get the power nodes and set up in other rooms.
