    There are now integrated amps with built in streaming so you can still do one box if needed.

    Yeap, that very well may be what happens. The only decent used amp in my general area currently is a Rotel 1080. I decent amp, but for some reason poorly reviewed.

    Sounds like you're coming to some of the same conclusions I have Chris. My impressions from shopping the interwebs is that the entire wireless audio/video industry is still maturing. We all know that you can't wait forever but if you do commit to an all-in-one solution be prepared for near-term obsolescence.

    Agreed, actually I think it is a certainty. Too bad really because it really is my preferred route, but I plan on living with this system for a while. Too many systems have come and gone, my wife would be pissed if I replaced this system in only a year or two. And I can't really blame her.

    I don't think I'd trade what I have, that ethernet cable was the least of my problems, but I could see it being a pain in a lot of installations.
    I suspect these are more than decent, and I would suggest anymore looking for this type of solution at least audition KEF, probably Dynaudio, and Elac as well.

    I didn't think the reviewer loved the sound of these all that much. Otherwise very nice...

    Agreed, obviously the are not meant to take the market from the LS50s, but for a smaller install they might be decent. The bottom end is a big part of what makes the LS50 so good to me, I highly doubt these can perform as well in that area.

    The Rotel is a decent amp. I had one back when I ran Club Rotel.
