Just acquired this unit and it has an app to stream RP Flac.  Sounds really good but appears to suffer the same problem as the App I used to use on my MAC.  It just stops sometimes and then when you restart the stream it just plays the cache and then stops again.  Then I have to reboot the stream to clear it out.  Great sounding little unit but need to get it where it can stream RP reliably.
 
sell it and get the much cheaper Bluesound Node.  works flawlessly.  

 

I just compared 3 sources. 
Bryston FLAC S/PDIF
iPAD Flac USB
Wyred For Sound moded SONOS AAC 320K S/PDIF

  All sources are fed into a Wadia 321 that upsamples to 196KHZ. 

All sound good but the Bryston is the clear winner with better depth and sound stage.  The Bryston is the only one that is hard wired  to a Wifi Node and a little bit better S/PDIF cable
.  
Sure hope I can get the Bryston going.  

See if I can get  my paws on a Bluesound Node 2 and wire it in via optical or S/PDIF

Does the Bluesound play the FlAC (16/48) files or stream 320 KBS?
 

RP is built in to the Bluesound controller app. Plays FLAC, with song skip & alt channels. 
 

Thanks Bill did SONOS ever get on board with playing FLAC?  May have to go that way eventually.  The Bryston is a good piece, has external power supply and sounds really nice.   Plays Qobuz and local storage via USB and does a bunch of formats even DSD, virtually format agnostic.    I picked it up used and was having trouble with it when I first got it and Bryston just shipped me out a new micro disk and boom all new OS update.    Plug for supporting a unit I got off the used market.  I also like the fact i dont have to have an App on my iPAD.  But the Manic Moose interface is just flat out spartan for such an expensive piece hardware.   If I can't get the RP app sorted I may have to check out the node.

 

We're in the final test phase for our Sonos app. Should be available sometime soon.
