Great product, too bad Logitech didn't market it.

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.
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.
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: I will say that my wife and I love this product, but that its performance is directly related to your network's performance. We found that our network was having difficulties moving the files - we were having dropouts and other unpleasant occurences when I decided to run a 100ft ethernet cable (that may have been driven by the fact that I have saved my entire music collection in FLAC format for sound quality).
Summary: This product is absolutely amazing. I have been searching for something like this for YEARS, and then BOOM! Here's the DUET, a sleek, wireless, home entertainment system. First, I should address network issues. They happen. There are complaints of network issues. I personally am in the beta program and run the latest software available, and I would like to mention that typical network issues are usually issues with your router.
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.
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.

Summary: Who knew that this little integrated music system would become one of our most used electronic items in such a short span of time? My husband and I are both music lovers and have a rather eclectic blend of music that we enjoy. The squeezebox brings it all together in one integrated music system. The set-up was done by my husband, who can give you a bit more detail on the technical aspects of this system.
