Inexpensive streamer to start - Pioneer N50?

Hi Bob,

interesting post as I bought a pioneer n50 last December to gain some experience in streaming. It is very easy to use and you do not need a full NAS set-up with it to get going as it will play internet radio/Spotify and USB drives which will also allow you to experiment with high res downloads and play your cd collection. Since I bought it, I've added a NAS and will probably add a Naim dac in a few months. Overall a very affordable way to learn about streaming and if you don't like it, can auction it on the web and lose very little money. No regret so far. 

Kind of jumping in at the end here based on the title. I've heard the N50 and it is probably pretty good for GBP 350. It is very hi spec but not as musical in the way the streaming section of a UQ2 is which goes to show specs aren't everything. But again, at the price, I feel it was a performer that punches a bit above its class.
