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: 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.
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: 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.
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.
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...
Summary: 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.
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...
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.
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.
