Hi,

I am thinking of purchasing a wireless squeezebox but have found that they
are quite difficult to get hold of in the UK. When I look at the slimdevices
website I see there is a 6-8 week wait for the wireless version. This
suggests to be that there a new version to soon be released. A retailer in
the UK also said he suspected this assumption was also true. Slim devices
won't tell me either way for sure.

Does anyone know what the plan is for the new squeezebox? Will it look
massively different? Will it be much MUCH better? I want one now but don't
know if I should wait for the new version to be released after all it is a
lot of money that I'll be spending.

Would be great if someone could shed some light on this matter....any
ideas??

I've had the same suspicions, since they are out of stock everywhere. I am
also in the market for a second wireless one, be good to know what's coming.

While Slim Devices are very open with the development of SlimServer and any
details on the inner workings of Squeezebox or SliMP3, they are tight-lipped in
regard to future hardware. The official stance on any hardware plans, near or
far, is always no comment. As always, it is anyone's guess.

The recent price drop on the wired box is another possible indication ...
