Logitech Squeezebox Duet Music Server Review
14 May 2008
Summary: Logitech may have hosed themselves on this review. Had the interface been working correctly, this one could have easily scored 5's across the board. Unfortunately, with the interface problems, it's hard to say, "You've just GOT to get one of these.
Pros: Easy access to Internet Radio, Tons of connection options, Great fidelity and lack of audio dropouts, SqueezeCenter makes personalization a breeze
Cons: If receiver has a problem connecting, there is very little feedback to tell you what's wrong, Software still beta, Menu layout could be better organized
Excerpt: Logitech's Squeezebox Duet won a Best Buy award in last year's group test of streaming audio players. The Duet consists of a receiver with stereo phono, coaxial and optical S/PDIF outputs and a remote control with a colour screen.
Conclusion: By and large, there's little not to like about the operation of the Squeezebox Duet. Wireless performance was largely flawless, whether streaming from online services or locally networked PCs -- that's compared to other wireless music systems, which occasionally have dropouts.
Pros: Minor improvements could make the already good interface even better, No compatibility with DRM music files such as those purchased from iTunes, Setup process could frustrate those who aren't tech-savvy
Cons: Excellent remote with colour screen and scroll wheel control, Supports Wi-Fi and Ethernet home networks, Compatible with virtually all non-DRM audio file formats
