    Is the Squeezebox Duet known as a high failure rate model?

    no. It is a bit harder to setup (requires the controller or 3rd party software). And a bit harder to tell status if there is a problem (light colors, etc). But I've never seen high failure rate comments.

    I'm waiting for a new wall wart to arrive and give it a go with that. What happened is that when i bought, it worked good for a week. I then did not use my stereo for a couple of days, the indicator on the front of the receiver was off and the receiver could not be seen by both its remote and my android tablet. I tried the method of holding the front button until i got the blinking red light...holding up to 3-4 minutes, nothing..it was getting power(the optical output emitter was illuminated. I did get it to work for an hour or two again, but is now again unresponsive.

    Got the new 'wall wart' today. The Duet powered up and quickly locked in to my network right away. I have seen a few threads about the power supply going bad but little to no responses on whether a new supply solved the problem. Keeping my fingers crossed that it is now 'cured'.

    Good news it seems.
