    He still (at that point) had the familiar swedish-speaking-finn accent...

    Bit late maybe, sorry, but let me add that parts of the Squeezebox issues are still repairable which is also a good reason to stick around
    I don't think this gets easier with more modern devices which are apparently built to go to the landfill after warranty expiry.

    Doesn't really matter when the service/support is what's disappearing along with all my radio stations.

    Maybe I am not following you, is your complaint that favorite AM/FM Radio Stations are no longer on the air or no longer streaming? If a station streams its OTA signal, one only needs a PC, not a Squeezebox. If the Station and format is actually gone, there is an economic reason for that.

    For me, I only listen to AM or FM if I don't have my own music available or access to SiriusXM Satellite. And having access to one's music and content (download pos casts to listen to on ones time not when they are aired) is rapidly replacing OTA.

    No, the stations are still there just fine as they always have been. That is very easily verified by simply checking the station on another device. And, don't tell people what they "need or don't need". I don't "need" a PC in the places I'd easily carry around and use a portable internet radio. Besides, everything is now running along just fine on my Grace Digital Mondo+ unit. The problem was with LOGITECH, not the sources.

    Newbie to forum 100% agrees

    My old classic gave up the ghost, fortunately it was only the Power supply, a quick hack to solder a usb cable to the oem plug, and I’m up and running again.

    Then my Rasperry pi, connected to my Cambridge DAC was corrupted in a power cut, and then discovered that iOS 11 had screwed the remote, that got me into “is it time to Jib squeeze*” ?

    I’d been a fairly passive user for a long time, and when I started digging I have been amazed at how much really good stuff there is in the community....

    Found picore player, which will isolate me from future power failures, found shairplay, so i can use an old stereo for the kids... AirPlay bridge, so I can link in my Sky Q boxes, and A DLNA player so I can use my new friend IPeng to send HD resolution content to my blu ray player.

    Keep up the good work lads and lasses

    Catching up on the thread. Lots of words resonate with my own feelings (apart from those entering into OS wars ) I remember the experience of opening the packaging of my first Squeezebox 3 the attention to detail was obvious all the way through the product. I can safely say it reignited my love of music. All those CDs stuck in a corner gathering dust now ripped to a server and available to play in high quality; jumping from song to song as memories were awakened, not something you'd do with a CD player.

    Maybe one of the things overlooked in the comments is the visual detail of the Squeezeboxes especially the VFD in the SB3. It exuded quality and matched the attention and choice of the audio DAC. I still think the SB3 was the best player for visual looks the simplicity and beauty of the VFD was lost with the Radio and Touch. The alternatives suggested in the thread so far have not suggested a player that matches the SB3 in terms of audio AND visual quality.

    I wonder what Adam and Dean would come up with today?

    I agree about the SB3. I bought one knowing nothing about the eco system - I also bought Pink Martini’s Sympathetique a bit later.
