I operate a small custom installation business in Kansas and am also looking to offer LMCE systems to clients. I feel that this system far exceeds any other offering of complete packages on the market. Niveus is the only thing I've found to really come close (except for $$$$$$$$$) and it doesn't offer automation and security and ....
My fear is that with the addition of commercial offerings the "openness" of the project may suffer. I will do my best to give feedback and any additional information that I may come across. Hopefully the rest of the "commercial" side of this project will do the same.
If we can pair this project up with affordable whole-house audio solutions (NuVo) and integrate other helpful additions like the recipes module I suggested while utilizing legal playback of media in the US this system could well be THE system to have.
Although, admittedly, the Fiire systems are great and ready-to-go so I will probably just offer those as my own systems for install. I would still love to see the NuVo re-integration as well as a whole host of other additions.
Oh, and the re-release of the Sony XL1B3 would be nice too.
