This is nice stuff, but I need to briefly rant about the Duet’s 15-step set-up process. I do not EVER want to read instructions like “The number on the controller’s LCD screen is the last six numbers of the MAC address. You may confirm this number by looking at the label on the bottom of the receiver where the MAC address is printed.” Nope, that’s not acceptable. I don’t want to program instructions in machine language, or write a driver for my PC, or have to write down SSIDs (how many music lovers even know what SSIDs are?). I want products that contain the entire computing power of the University of Michigan in 1967 (IBM System 360/67 serial #2) with way better software to do this stuff for me.
But, trust me on this: you can get through the set-up process with a little patience. And once you do, you can route the PC-accessible music sources you love to any sound system in your house, and without the limitations of PC sound.
