I had a problem with a new NAD cdp. I can become a new one by the dealer for less money; 360,-- Euro. he also says that his advice is no cdp but streaming and he find the Sonos system very good.

What shall i do?

Hi Peterpan,

Well, as someone who has recently bought a Sonos ZP90 (hooked up to my main hi-fi system), I can definitely recommend it - really easy to use, all your music (plus spotify, napster etc if you subscribe, and a zillion internet radio stations) at your fingertips, no more getting up to change CD, pack them away etc......but you would be well advised to get a decent DAC to get the best out of it.

I don't have any experience of NAD products, so I couldnt comment on how it would compare.

You could buy an Audiolab 8200CDQ like I have, which is a CD player with an excellent DAC built in, and an amazing headphone amp.

Squeezebox Touchg could also be considered, have heard lots of good stuff about them, but no experience (plus I think if you are a PC moron like me, the Sonos is much more straightforward).
