Certainly looks interesting, I'll wait and see what you think.

I suspect the only thing it has to do with the old "AR" (the outfit that 
made the great speakers and turntable) is the name on it.

From the reviews it seems to require a PC to set up, is this a Windows 
only proposition?

IOW, do I need Windows running somewhere to set it up?

Is that a charger or just a pocket to hold it?
