I've read various reciever reviews that include networking as a feature. My impression is that this allows the reciever to stream files from your computer.
I think I'd prefer to put my $400 into a better all around reciever that includes this option - thereby elimating the need for this expensive logiteck device.
Any thoughts? Being able to have a non-big screen OSD would be important, I don't know how that is handled in the recievers.
For $400 you can almost get a nice small laptop running itunes (connected to my older reciever) that you keep on a sidetable. I did this actually for awhile, it was a pretty nice set-up, though my wife wasn't thrilled about having a laptop in the living room all the time.
