The next claim from Apple was that the iPod Hi-Fi could replace high-end AV systems from companies like Denon — a statement that left many, including Denon executives, scratching their heads.
“It is sort of confusing why they would throw it up against an AV receiver that was not made for the iPod,” Jeff

This obstacle should start to fade when Microsoft releases EFI-supporting Vista, the next generation of Windows, later this year, Needham said.
