I need to upgrade my computer. What should I consider for best streaming performance? RAM, processor speed, HD size?

Hi. Do you mean for streaming from the internet? Either way, the computer is pretty much irrelevant. Any hard drive can store your music, and the PC controller is just a controller, it doesn't actually play the music. As far as Sonos is concerned, almost anything you could buy would be fine.

My guess is you're referring to streaming video, in which case you'd want a computer with a dedicated graphics card. Steer clear of integrated audio/video features, as they should be separate from the motherboard to be effective.

If you meant streaming with Sonos, that's been answered by John B already.
