Summary: Have had my Duet for years and always the same problem. When I finally get it to connect to the computer I can never get it to connect to internet streams again without resetting to factory defaults and vice-versa. I've tried both static and dynamic network addressing and it won't switch successfully with either. I've also tried both wireless and wired connections to the base unit.
Summary: Unlike another brand audio streamer (starts with S and ends with s) which has a song file limit of around 65,000 songs, the Logitech music server has no limit on songs, only the size of your hard drive.
Pros: Nice control interface. WiFi controller in your hand as it should be.
Cons: The initial setup sometimes can be difficult.
Complexity makes it 1 star for humans, 5 stars for geeks

Summary: Summary: the Duet + the Logitech Media Server software is not a consumer device. It is slow, complicated and software updates change the behavior of the system every 3-6 months. Some of the problems that appear are arcane and require significant time to fix to get back into a running state. Having said all that, when it works, it is lovely. I have it hooked up to a Musical Fidelity D/A converter and the sound is comparable to that of a $1200 CD player.
Summary: I've been using my duet system for about 5 years. It's provided countless hours of music. I hardly use the remote anymore however since I just use the squeemote app from the apple appstore on my iphone. Can't say it's been flawless or the most user friendly, but once you get it all set up, it works great. I understand this is now discontinued but one can get the same functionality from the newer models.
Summary: It`s very hit & miss whether it will work or not. It`s good when it works, but it freezes up on you more often than not. The Touch is a huge step up from this Duet. Same your money & buy the Squeezebox Touch.
Summary: Well, the idea is good. I'd love to be able to control the music in the house, and outside on the deck, with a screen and a wifi (instead of line of sight IR) remote. And I'd like to give a shout out to Logitech/Squeezebox's excellent customer support, who spent a ton of time trying to get the product to work for me, and who ultimately made things right in the end (even though I ended up switching to a Squeezebox Touch instead). I never got this unit working properly.
Summary: Bought this to complete a stereo set up that includes a marantz stereo receiver with definitive technology speakers back in 2009. The squeezebox is not without it's faults. Drops wireless connections frequently, especially on earlier firmware versions. Current updated software seems to be stable.
Basic features work well; don't get too fancy with it!

Summary: I own four Squeezebox radios altogether: a BoomBox, a Duet and two basic Radios. I have a PhD in Computer Science and I do research in Networking so I'm a relatively sophisticated user. I still can't quite figure out how the software for this system works or whether it is actually possible to get it to do all the things it claims. However, I have it working pretty well and I enjoy using the features that I do understand.
Summary: There are a lot of reviews of Logitech Squeezebox Duet so I won't go into everything it does or doesn't do. On the positive side, when it plays it sounds great, period. Everything else is negative. For a product that costs as much as this, it has a long way to go to be usable for the average person/family.
This little gadget is terrific. Lives up to Logitech repuataion.

Summary: I had just recently installed an upgraded Wi-Fi router in my office where I have 500 GB of music (mostly classical and mostly in Apple Lossless format). I ordered the Logitech Duet. It took about 20 minutes following very simple instructions to get going. Now I can stream all of my iTunes Music Library to my stereo system in my Master Bedroom. The receiver was a one minute plug it in job.
