    I've owned Squeezeboxes for a little while now, but thought I'd wait a while before opting for the Duet, which I installed last week. After using it thoroughly over the past few days, I'm ready to review it. And it's a cracker!

    First things first, the Duet works with your existing Squeezebox. If you already own one, then you just need to buy the controller - not necessarily both the controller and the squeezebox streamer (unless you want two Squeezeboxes - for example in two rooms).

    I read the review that said that range was reduced (from the Squeezebox 3), and I just can't duplicate that at all. The controller operates via WiFi, so if you get a WiFi signal, then it's 'in range'. I wandered all over my house, into areas where windows reports the signal as 'poor' on my laptop, and the Duet controller worked just fine.

    I also think that the reviewers who said this wasn't 'plug and play' do have a point - but then again, I have yet to come across a media streamer that is. In audiophile terms, the Burr-Brown DAC of Squeezebox is vastly superior to that used by the 'competition', and there are now customisers who can fit power supplies with audiophile components if you want to raise the quality to that esoteric 'golden ears' category - but it sounds just fine to me 'as is'.

    The unit has a built-in wifi connection, and a 2.5" colour screen that really frees your music. It's like using your ipod to choose the music, but your HiFi playing it.

    As before, there are essentially two seperate programs in the firmware. 1.

    I've tried a few other "Streaming" devices but this is the best.

    Others were integrated Hi-Fi type and weren't quite up to the standard I'd hoped for.
    I have a problem with a lot of gadgets today, in that they promise loads and never quite deliver everything I expect them, which means I more often than not just have to put up with their failings.

    Not with the Squeezebox. This works. Simple as that. It does everything it should and it does it well.

    Setup might not be straight forward for everyone, but I would suggest that's normally because not everyone has the same home network set-up so I wouldn't say that is Logitech's fault.
    If you have problems, look at the support on the website and ask a question in the Squeezebox forums. It can normally be answered fairly quickly.

    I've configured mine to use mixed mode network, that is Ethernet for the actual player box and wireless for the controller.
    Had to change my wireless network settings slightly but again I think that is how I'd configured the wireless originally and not Logitech's fault.

    Streams all my music (including Lossless formats such as FLAC and WAV) which is a massive plus for me and one of the reasons I never got on with the other players I'd tried.
    Also got it configured to run off a NAS box which again works flawlessly.
    Internet radio works great and there is a massive choice of stations.

    One of my favourite features is the integration with the BBC iPlayer so you can listen to your favourite programs when you want.

    Once again, the Squeezebox does exactly what it says on the tin and it does it very well.

    I love my new Logitech Squeezebox Duet system. It took a little time to set up but after I had got my software firewall issues fixed it worked like a dream. In fact i'm so pleased with it I purchased an additional receiver unit for another room. I also use my iPhone with software from the Apple App Store to act as a handy second control unit (though for those of you with an iPhone already and tempted to just get a reciever ... don't do it - the Squeezebox control unit that comes with the Duet systems is well worth it!).

    My set up is as follows:

    - 1x Logitech Sqeezebox control unit (comes with the Duet system)
    - 2x Logitech Squeezebox receivers (1x comes with the Duet system - I purchased the other seperately)
    - Receiver ONE is in my sitting room and is connected to a Logitech Z-2300 THX Certified speaker system
    - Receiver TWO is in my conservatory and connected via Powerline Ethernet (i.e. over my home electricity system from the router) as Wifi didn't work - works great though!
    - Music is stored on the hard-drive of my home computer in WMA format (typically 192kbps) and MP3 format (typically 320kbps) - approx 400 albums all work great
    - Belkin MIMO Wireless G+ ADSL Router
    - Standard BT ADSL 512k internet connection
    - McAfee Firewall / Security Center
    - Microsoft Vista

    The bottom line: the benefits I value most are a) the outstanding sound quality and b) the ease of use of the Logitech Squeezebox Duet system once you have it up and running. Squeezebox doesn't play DRM protected music though so keep this in mind before purchasing. In conclusion, if you are into your music and have a large collection this is great value for money. Buy it!
