Have had it for 9 months and it still works great

Summary: I really like that the remote and the receiver are Wifi based vs. the remote using some proprietary radio to the receiver. This means you take the remote anywhere. We take it to other rooms since we have a multi-zone amplifier. The remote has a nice bright and clean screen. It shows menus and then album art once something is playing. There are also apps to show weather and the like. You do have to use their server on a PC vs.
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: For those who like to listen to radio stations from all over the world, the Squeezebox Duet is a handy tool. I found it easier to use than my stand alone table top model --though the handset from the Duet mackes it easier to control as well. I have it wired into my stereo system for great sound through good speakers.
Summary: This is a great product for the price. We used to randomly install the first version in our client jobs, but it is now a standard unit for all our installs due to the new numerous features and nice "wow" factor for the client. It integrates very well!
Summary: Just received this today and I love it already. Easy to connect and does exactly what I want. I've got control of the music on my PC from anywhere in the house or yard. Connected to my network and Pandora easily. Simple connection to stereo system. I'm a big fan of Logitech but in no way affiliated. Great product. Wish I had this years ago - would have watched less TV and listen to more music!
Summary: I heard about the Squeezebox product and boy was I impressed. A little tedious settting it up with my wireless network (putting in the username and password on the remote is not a simple task). Hooking up to the stereo system though is a breeze. Hooking it up was the last time I actually used the remote. I control everything from my smart phone (I have an Android, but there is also an app for the iphone, ipad,...).
Summary: The Duet is awesome! I plugged it in using the 'hybrid configuration' (hardwired to the LAN and the remote to the wireless network) and it found the MS Home Server and was able to access & play the 60+ GB of music stored on the server immediately. Pandora & internet radio also came up effortlessly.
Summary: **UPDATE** I had to update this. I've had this about a year now and I must revise my review to say this is probably the most unreliable "piece" or hardware that I have ever owned. The software is so bad that Logitech sometimes has weekly updates to it. Still nothing works consistently. If anything at all happens, the software finds it necessary to rescan your database. This is fine if you have a couple of hundred songs, but I have 22k songs.
Summary: I had wanted a Squeezebox Duet when it first came out, but could not justify paying full retail. When I saw the deal on Amazon for just over $200, I finally took the hook. I ordered in early May 2011 and it arrived within just a few days perfectly wrapped and packaged. Setting it up was totally frustrating, and totally problem riddled. The controller was no problem. It found my network and connected on the first try. The receiver was another story.
