trendy almost-useless? I suggest you take a read through the whole thread and see how many are enjoying this, or wish it was available in their country.

Just a friendly suggestion..

We are currently using Ogg Vorbis q5, i.e. up to approx. 160kb/s.
Oh yay.

Ogg is better than MP3, but that's still more than pretty bad.
The idea of any hi-fi system is to reproduce the source material as faithfully as possible, and to deliberately add distortion to everything you hear (due to amplifier deficiencies) because it sounds 'nice' is simply not high fidelity. If that is what you want to hear then there is no problem with that, but by adding so much additional material (by way of harmonics and intermodulation) you have a tailored sound system, not a hi-fi. - Rod Elliot, ESP

lol.

And 192kbit and under triggers a relay in my receiver to auto-off and self-destruct.

Spoiler (highlight to read):
192 just cause some music can't be found in better quality. It's shit.

If this was just a media player then I would over the moon.

It's nice, but it doesn't have a HUGE library and I think I will stick to my means of getting music.
