Reply To: Question 101 Firefly, Pinnacle SoundBridge & Roku



Roku branded units are licenced to use the daap protocol.
Pinnacle branded units are not as Apple refused to Let the music play.

Firefly was originally only a daap server but when Roku / Pinnacle ran into the licencing problem they created the “Roku Server Protocol”

Firefly can also use the Roku server protocol.

It would also appear that Pinnacle have more models in the SoundBridge line up than Roku.

The NSLU2 is just a NAS box (that uses USB hard drives). It’s one of the more “hackable” boxes on the market. Think of it as a little computer / server with no keyboard, no mouse, no screen….
