    What I mean is that I am hessitant to invest further in whole house audio when I have a nagging felling that the product-line will stop being sold at some point in the "near" future and thus force me to change to Sonos or whatever for further expansion. I don't really care for mysb.com. I try to avoid it, though I suspect radio-channel-lists are maintained via mysb.com.

    Actually there is nothing keeping me from buying more squeezeboxes except that we don't really need more (or at least need other stuff more than stocking up the last couple of rooms.)

    I have two Squeezebox Radios and an SB3, running off a QNAP NAS box running the server 24/7. All perform flawlessly (issues I've had mostly relate to the BBC's radio streams and appear to be nothing to do with the server software or hardware). Frankly, the only thing that would really make me buy another SB would be if one of those three devices conked out.

    For a replacement for the SB3, I would not be looking for a touch screen or a fancy display, as I don't want or need that for the HiFi. I use SqueezePad on the iPad to control the music.

    I recently bought some receivers to replace SB2's and have better synch with Touch and SB3's, so if Logitech brought out a completely new generation I might be persuaded but to be honest I'm out of rooms now and the later stuff just doesn't match the reliability of the earlier SB3's. It seems to me that what the audio market wants is SB3's or receiver/ipeng combination. I wasted another hour last night trying to get a Duet controller to connect to the server (others were fine).

    On that point (and you don't list this option)I am fairly sure that if they brought out a model with an integrated CD player for backup when the rest doesn't work, my wife would be first in line..
