I completely agree with you. When I first started this search, I was not aware of all the available options. I thought using a portable device would be the reasonable option. Sonos is too expensive and proprietary; all I want it the streaming solution, I have a great receiver and speakers wired already.
The If I go Squeezebox, I'll go with the touch. It's still cheaper than replacing the CD player and I want the best sound quality I can get.
