High Points
The Transporter combines the convenience of a music server with the sound quality of an audiophile CD player. 
• The Transporter can play a wide variety of music file types and is compatible with several online music services. 
• The Transporter has the ability to play your music without a computer by using a NAS device or an online music storage service.
• The Transporter's displays can be user-configured to provide a variety of information or display RSS feeds.

Low Points
• The Transporter is not fully self-contained and requires an external device to stream locally stored music files.
• Setting up the SqueezeCenter software can be daunting to the somewhat technologically challenged. If you set up your own wireless Internet, then don't worry a bit. If not, your dealer can help you make things sing for you with a Transporter in your system - likely for a small fee.

Conclusion
The Transporter is an excellent option for those who are looking to get the best possible performance from their audio files or anyone who needs a high-quality DAC. For someone who needs both, it's a steal. As the Transporter uses the same SqueezeCenter software to stream music files, it is the obvious choice for those Squeezebox owners seeking to add an audiophile-grade portal for their primary listening room while maintaining other Squeezebox products for the other rooms in the house.

Digital music files stored on hard drives or web-based storage services are the way of the future. Physical media has had a long run and is still in wide use, but the future is the digital music file. Fortunately, with the Transporter, you do not need to choose between your CDs and your music files. The Transporter provides exemplary sound quality, both as a DAC to your CD transport and as network music player. I highly recommend the Transporter if you need either.
