Hi All -
I recently bought a refurbished BOOM from netdirectSales via ebay. (I haven't received it yet). They offer a 30 day 100% return policy.
I have owned a Touch since January, so I'm familiar with the Squeezebox product and use. I know that the BOOM is not in production anymore, but I am going to need a portable device that I am going to use for a party next month. I couldn't wait to see what Logitech is going to offer (if any) as a replacement for the BOOM. The SqueezeboxRadio is a bit too small (and not stereo) for my purposes. I plan to leave it playing outside synced to the SBT playing on the stereo inside.
I am seeking any tips or suggestions for things to look for immediately after I take it out of the box. I've read here that there were subwoofer problems, I'll have to read that throroughly before I hook it up. Will I need to update it ot the latest software, or will it do that automatically?
Thanks in advance!

I think you'll enjoy the Boom. I enjoyed mine until the woofers (not sub-woofer) died. See this thread for more info, and how you may go about checking the driver surrounds on your Boom: http://forums.slimdevices.com/showth...e-Fixing-Booms

oops, yeah woofer, no sub!
Thanks for the link. The one I bought has been refurbished, hopefully the woofer issue was addressed while it was refurnished. I've had luck with a refurbished Marantz (from another dealer - accessories4less.com), so I am joping that luck spreads here.
I know that as soon as I get i t, logitecj will announce their new product!

Just connect it to your LMS server or MySB.com online, it will automatically update it's firmware. Current Boom firmware version is 57.
