Summary: While I was frustrated with Amazon's backordered status of the Duet, I used the time to continue research on the competing Sonus (just too much money for me to justify), start converting my CDs to FLAC computer files, and planning my ultimate configuration which is serving up my music collection...
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.
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.
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...
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.
Summary: I purchased a Squeezebox 2 years ago. And I raved to friends about it. As a result 4 friends bought it. Too bad the review doesn't stop there. The reality is that when I-Tunes updated their code this past Dec., my Squeezebox stopped working. So I was told to clear the memory and re boot.
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.
Summary: I bought this and had it for two days before sending back. At first, I thought it was kind of cool. This was until the remote started rebooting or hanging. I had to pull the battery out about 12 times in only two days of ownership. The setup was fairly easy.
Summary: Plays a wide variety of file types - my collection is mostly MP3 and FLAC. I've used the server on Redhat EL5, Fedora 13, and Ubuntu 10 - there's apparently a Windows version available as well. Good to see Newegg carrying this now.
Pros: This thing rocks. It should work just fine at a basic level for users with any level of knowledge, offering a great interface to your digital music collection, but techies get much more. I have the server software running on my Linux file server/router - it presents a nice web interface for brows...
Cons: New development seems kind of slow (infrequent releases with rarely anything big.) More people need to learn Lua, myself included.
