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.
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 thought that I would provide some useful information for discerning shoppers looking at the squeezebox. I have around 6 months' experience with this device, now, and I know it pretty much inside out. The squeezebox is quite a good system - but not necessarily as it comes off the shelf.
Summary: The features are exactly what we needed. I was excited to see that the Duet controller has a headphone jack, and that this can be enabled to provide a 2nd player, essentially an ipod-like player. However, this thing is so buggy that it is almost unusable.
Very Cool.. installation is a pain and tech support is non existant

Summary: I have been using a music server for over 4 years now using Roku's Soundbridge product line... unfortunately Roku has decided to drop support for the Soundbridge products. As a replacement technology I decided to purchase Logitech's duet and squeezebox radio.
Summary: Nice interface on the duet. I love the functionality. But networking multiple squeezeboxes is unreliable. I have a duet and 3 Booms, and I spend a lot of time getting them to connect and synch.
Summary: I am generally happy with the Duet when it works correctly. I have had two issues with it: 1.) It has gotten into a locked up mode where it was stuck "connecting to squeezebox"; I fixed it by unplugging / rebooting everything and 2.) the XM add-in does not work.
Summary: Overall, a nice product that I enjoy having, and I expect to get better. The set-up was okay - it worked mostly as they said it would. It took a software update to actually connect to the computer. I never figured out how to get it to work through SqueezeNetwork. Maybe this is fixed by now.
A Few Flaws Stand in the Way of Playing Your Music Anywhere...But It Does Work Eventually

Summary: I was unclear why this was called a Squeezebox Duet until I discovered it to be a two-part system - the Squeezebox Receiver base station and the Squeezebox Controller remote. The functionality of the base station is pretty clear - it's a black brick that pulls audio from a networked PC or the...
Summary: Gleich mal vorweg - Die Squeezebox Duet ist ein tolles Gerät mit einer guter Klang/Übertragungsqualität. Es sieht gut aus und meiner Meinung nach eine durchaus übersichtliche Menüstruktur. So - das wars mit den positiven Eigenschaften!
