    Could any SBT owners please tell whether when playing an internet radio station (eg. Radio Paradise) does the SBT display the artist/track details?

    The reason I ask is that the Marantz M-CR603 and NA7004 displays this information amongst other things, whilst for example the Onkyo TX-8050 does not (though it does have the station name, bit rate etc. but no track information).

    I'm really considering a SBT but cannot seem to find out about this particular function. I spoke to Superfi this afternoon and they were not sure, but thought it did.

    Can anyone confirm or deny this please?

    Cheers

    Dave

    If the data is embedded in the stream, the Touch will display it. I'd say maybe 5% of stations carry track-by-track meta-data the Touch can make sense of

    Thanks for that, that's just what I wanted to hear.
