Great product, too bad Logitech didn't market it.
2 April 2013
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.
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.
A fabulous product . . . for the right kind of person

Summary: I've had the Duet for about 3 weeks, and I love it. It is - - eventually - - going to truly fulfill the vision of replacing all those messy shelves of CD cases with an invisible online library of all my music, elegantly accessible throughout the house. All the 5-star reviews here are well-deserved. I honestly think the controller and its display are as elegant (in their own way) as the iPod Classic, and that's saying a lot.
Summary: Logitech Squeezebox Duet Network Music System By William Higgins, Editor-in-Chief at [...] The iPod revolutionized the personal music experience, but the Squeezebox Duet will revolutionize how you listen to music in your home!!! I am really blown away by this product. With springtime upon us I used this the time this past week to wire my den and back porch with in-ceiling speakers. I had an old Onkyo A/V receiver that I installed in a closet to power the 2 rooms.
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 from a Network Attached Storage device. But, now I have my Duet and it was worth the wait.
Excellent product, but some tech knowledge required

Summary: So as not to bury the lede, I'll state up front: I really like this product. It works well for me, and meets exactly the need for which I purchased it, which was: to make my entire CD collection easily and conveniently available throughout my house, in a way that was simple enough for family and friends to use without lengthy tutoring.
The promise of open and easy access to all of my music finally fulfilled.

Summary: A promise fulfilled. Quick, convenient, and effortless access to both my own local music files, but also internet radio and popular online music services. Easy to configure, easier to use. Attractive, intuitive, and responsive. A wonderful solution, and I'm rediscovering music files I hadn't touched in years. That's my review, and if you're looking for a quick and easy synopsis, that's it. What follows is my experience, and it's quite a bit longer.
Summary: The Good: The Logitech Squeezebox Duet Network Music System lets you wirelessly stream music from you computer or the internet to your stereo or standalone speakers to any room in your house that can access your wireless network. The iPod-esque controller also allows you control from any room that has a signal from your network giving you extreme flexibility.
Excellent alternative to the more expensive Sonos system

Summary: I did a lot of research before I decided to purchase the Logitech Duet. I was able to narrow my choices down to the Logitech Duet, the Sonos system, and Yamaha's MusicCast. I couldn't be happier with my decision! I purchased two sets of this, so I have two controllers and two receivers. I can control either receiver using either controller from wherever I am within my home network's range.
Summary: UPDATE 27 August 2009 - Its been a year with the Duet and I can't imagine living without it. The new Software/Firmware upgrades and iPhone Apps are superb bonuses. Everyone who comes over and sees it in action has gone back an purchased one for themselves - its that good :) Even the wife love it - and actually plays around with it!! nuff said.
