Fair enough Farley2k, thanks for breaking it down for me.

I tried to think of it as bluetooth speaker/Sonos replacement (I don't own a Sonos, but I would love a couple of them), but I get stuck at what music it will play. It only plays music I have bought through Amazon, correct? If so, that is a huge problem for me because while I have bought quite a music from Amazon, a lot of it is ripped or bought from other sources such as Apple.

On the music thing, I assume this will hook up with the Amazon Cloud Player, and if so, you can download it to the computer where you have all your iTunes music, and it will look at all of those tracks and load them, making them available to you.

I did this quite a while ago, so I don't remember the details.  I'm sure there are rights issues that will keep some songs from being available, but I remember being impressed with how many songs I had.

Also, if you still buy CDs (like me) and you do it through Amazon, many of them have "AutoRip" which gives you a digital copy and automatically adds it to the Cloud Player.
