The iTunes replacement progresses, as a combination of obsession and hobby. Its now good enough that I am using it at my desk at work instead of an iPod (I’m using the HTML interface from home via a SSH port forward, but have a local cache of the MP3s themselves), and the MP101 just works. The MP101 support is pretty basic though, and needs some polish. Overall I’m please with how well it works at the moment though — pleased enough to have just bought a second MP101 off ebay.
I bought the second MP101 because I couldn’t find any good modern uPnP audio hardware clients. Any suggestions?
