AirSonos on Netgear ReadyNAS
Tue, Aug 19th 2014 4:00a   Volker Weber
Yesterday, I talked about AirSonos and how it lets you stream via AirTunes to SONOS players. Biggest downside: you need to have a computer running at all times.

Amtsschimmel

Diese Öffnungszeiten sind so entworfen, dass man keinesfalls in der Mittagspause mal schnell etwas erledigen kann.
