Slim Devices will ship the Transporter next month for audiophiles: the $2,000 streaming media device is designed to handle uncompressed and lossless music formats with aplomb, supporting several forms of digital input and output to integrate with high-end stereo systems. Should I just say it again? High-end. High end, high end, high end. Anyway, if you can hear a pin drop at 1,000 meters, and hear the missing notes on CD recordings, you might want--nay, need--the Transporter. There's a lot of detail on their digital-to-analog converter and the accuracy of their signal timing for those who understand such things. If you do, you're a candidate to buy it.
Along with handling optical, coax, BNC, and XLR digital input and output, and playing back files stored on locally network computers in Apple Lossless, FLAC, and WMA Lossless--along with every uncompressed and compressed format out there--the Transporter includes auto-switching/auto-sensing 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, and 802.11g with dual external antennas. They offer WEP and WPA/WPA2 support (personal flavors).
