I just feel like saying that I think our Squeezeboxes are THE BEST!
There’s no other ecosystem that compares with ours. The sound quality is so awesome (like having the orchestra right in my room)!
The functionality(when learned) is so versatile and convenient. Controlling the functionality via Ipeng makes it more convenient than any other system available (Thanks Pippin) and keeping our system updated still works (Thanks Michael!!! And others) in spite of Logitech’s unfortunate abandonment. Great apps, still supported.

After all these years of being a SB ecosystem supporter, I am still so passionate and thankful for what we have!

I would love to hear from others out there and how they are enjoying their Squeezeboxes and what they think. Like to hear from some of of our long-time posters.

I love this ecosystem and enjoy the entertainment more than ever and even more than I can say!!!

Thanks everyone. (Belated !!!HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!)

Oh yes, did not mention how very important are these FORUMS.

I subscribe to all of that.

There isn't a day that I don't rejoice at using or simply looking at my SB3s. That architecture and that design were pure genius.

Logitech decided to retire, but have done it with class. They still take care of everyone's favorite maintainer, and provide shelter for this community. I think this is remarkable.

And this is a brilliant community, courteous, active, sparkled with individuals skilled in a variety of domains. I miss some that are gone; I like seeing new talents pop up from time to time... My bet is that next we'll see a modern web skin for LMS (!)

So yes, glad to be here.

I second all of the above. The sad thing is that the Alexa plugin to link LMS to Alexa/Google has stopped development - this could have given more contemporary life to a great system.

That certainly ranks among recent star projects, although personally I only use AI to start kitchen timers on my iPhone ;)

Keep your hopes up.

What did happen with meep? I was thinking about a google home version and I though he was working one one. If not, i think I'll consider it, but not alexa

Unfortunately, nobody knows ... all communications stopped in December.

He was going to work on the Google version (which he said would be based largely on all the code he'd already done for Alexa) after the beta release (which has not materialised).

Agreed, the Squeezebox software and various players make for a terrific music delivery system. I use mine all over the house, and also for access to my personal music library when I'm traveling. Ten years ago when I started down the SB path, there was nothing that could compare, and there still is nothing that comes close today.

Thanks to all who still work to keep the ecosystem alive and kicking (including these forums). Your efforts are appreciated.
