Summary: We purchased several of these Logitech C-RM66 receivers. As another review states, it is not necessary to purchase the much-more-expensive Logitech Duet Controller to control the output, view album art, and read lyrics. There is a highly-regarded controller implementation for the iPhone, plus, any web browser can also control the receivers and the metadata about the music. We had been using the receivers without a Logitech controller for some time.
Summary: I bought the logitech squeezebox receiver without buying the remote and hooked it up to my hard wired network. I assumed it would be smart enough to obtain an IP address from my DNS server and that I could log on to its web page and set it up remotely, just like any other network device you buy. However, this is not the case. You need to also buy a remote control for an extra $300 just to get it to connect to the network. To me, this seems like a real rip off.
