    Roku M1000 £179 or Squeezebox 2 £199

    Look pretty similar in spec, Roku has a nicer style though and is a wee bit cheaper, has anyone compared the sound quality and the efficiency of use?

    Also is anyone aware of new versions or alternatives to these 2 chaps before I jump in?


    Thanks as always!

    I think they have improved the dacs on the squeezebox... I have the previous version which I feed via optical to my Tag.

    I love the server software .. its very stable full of features and works well on windows and mac (I use mac these days)

    always been very pleased with the squeezebox ..and the software is constantly being enhanced...

    Squeezebox - they invented the idea, ROKU, like a number of companies, jumped on the bandwagon and copied the idea.
    The current version of SB is better than it's predecessor, and IIRC, I'm sure there's some sort of limitation with the ROKU that the new SB doesn't have, regarding tranmission of AAC files - the ones you bought from the iTunes Music Store (iTMS).
