StreamPoint can automatically and continuously synchronize with music tracks and media applications. The remote will automatically see any newly created or downloaded music files and access them. Alternatively, you can perform updates manually. One caveat: Unlimited subscription services typically let you either stream music or download it. To synchronize the remote to these services, such as Rhapsody, you must first download the tracks to your Rhapsody library (as opposed to streaming them) so that StreamPoint can include them in its library. On the other hand, the remote can directly access purely streaming sources such as Internet radio stations and podcasts, browsed via applications such as iTunes or Windows Media Player; the station or podcast will appear on the display like any other audio source. If you use other software, such as Juice, to download podcasts, that works just fine with the remote too.
The best part about StreamPoint, and the DJ system in general, is that it simply leveraged all the infrastructure, files, and settings already on my PC; I didn't have to reinvent it all to run separately on the DJ. As I said at the onset, it's almost as easy as just plugging in a wire.
BOTTOM LINE According to research from Parks Associates, 40% of homes with Internet connections play music on their PCs, and 33% play Internet streams. Only 10% play music from their PCs through their primary audio entertainment system, however. My question is, with spiffy technology like the Logitech Wireless DJ Music System, what are 90% of you waiting for?
