In addition to the other comments, I'd like to plug the manufacturer (Nirvis). I was very pleased with the hardware quality and the people here. All top notch.
I was hand typing the CD databae into my Sony changers and thought there must be a better way and found the Slink-e. It read all of my 400+ CD's and grabbed the titles and track info from the web....plunked it into a database...and now I can easily find songs, create playlists, and access all of the above using a handheld remote (the latter takes programming skills)
Conclusion: Great idea, good buy.
PS: There is a learning curve for some of the bonus feature you get (like X-10 control, LAN access, and IR functions) and I'd guess you need an entry level expertise of weekend programmer or higher??
PPS: Wish list. If the Nirvis folks want to retire early - they could take it a step further and manufacture the "missing" stereo component - a mini PC with a TV as a monitor, control of the various stereo components (super remote), X-10, phone, voice, and web access, etc. with a HomeLink LAN hook-in via the telephone plug.
Or maybe control via a 3M Pilot?
