But most definitely Logitech are out to lunch. They have not understood this product line. If they had they would have done so much better. Sync is a case in point. They entirely missed its attraction.
I rue the day this bunch bought SlimDevices. I have two of most of the players and the 'Classic'(sic) Aka SB3 and Transporter are still the most reliable. The Boom is OK, but the duet and the radio are just plain flaky. The Touch is mildly better but such a jack of no trades its best used as a display only (even the touch interface does not work correctly, let alone the awful server).
Sorry to hijack the thread. It's just so sad to see such a great idea go to waste.Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known

It's nice (for some) that the boom is clock radio sized. I've never thought of using it as a clock radio.
Mine is usually on the kitchen counter hooked to a Velodyne VA907. Otherwise, it's in it's sack on the road with me.
I would like to see the same technology except large enough for 5" woofers. This could make a real difference in bass and volume.
A detachable handle would be nice (or a sling strap?) A protective slot for the remote would be very thoughtful since just tossing it into the mix has proven continuous pressure on a button kills batteries.
I don't mind the A/C requirement since when I'm not at home, it's bound to be somewhere with wifi so I can use the thing.

When researching (the lack of) the Squeezebox product line, and some of my Boom alarm failures, I tripped across a suggestion that one should voice their product suggestions to Logitech here http://www.onlineregister.com/logitechithink/.
What is ironic of course is that finding the Squeezebox products is a bit difficult in the 'Product Category' drop down list.
They are under 'Audio|Speakers'.
Have fun.Bob Harper

Letting Logitech Know Our thoughts
So really we should all fill in the survey as detailed here asking for an improved stereo squeezebox....
