It's 2008. Why aren't there better options ?
Don't count on the PS Audio device anytime soon and don't count on many of the options they've been "advertising." 
which external hard disc for music storage?
I highly recommend the Data Robotics Drobo. You can add more disk whenever you need and the Drobo will use as much as possible while keeping a backup copy.Chris 
Sharing iTunes files between PC & Mac?
I use a MacBook Pro as my music server and it is fabulous. No problems at all. Highly recommended. 
future of 2 channel CD sound
The future of high end audio is on disk, not disc. Format wars are done as Bluray is the last physical media. Everything will be downloads or vinyl. Downloads are already available as 24 bit / 96 KHz files. More should follow.ChrisFounderComputerA... 
Is iPod Digital Output Possible?

Whats your "best of CES 2008"

wireless/USB audio to receiver
A manual misleading? No way :-) It has probably been translated backward and forward a few times as well.ChrisComputer Audiophile | Turn Down The SilenceBlogging live from CES 2008, Jan 7-10 
wireless/USB audio to receiver
"must be non-copyrighted (no ripped CDs - crazy!!)."If I might ask, who has non-copyrighted music and how does the player know if the music has been copyrighted? I believe all music, whether registered with the government as a copyrighted piece or... 
iMac based system -- any advice?
If I were you I would probably use a squeezebox to get your music to your stereo and then use an external DAC between the squeezebox and your stereo. Not too hard to do and very convenient. - ChrisComputer Audiophile | Turn Down The Silencehttp:/...

Mac Leopard, iTunes, apple lossless best backup
"I'm not sure if it'll work, but within iTunes there is a "back up to disk" command - not sure it will work to an external disk though"This is only for backing up to DISC not DISK. I wish it worked for both.- ChrisComputer Audiophile | Turn Down T...
