I already own two squeezebox2 devices -- *very* happy with them, but was wondering about scrounging up a super-cheap model for outdoor use. All my music is mp3, and I don't have any plans to switch to FLAC or anything like that anyways, is there any reason to NOT pick up an old slimp3, assuming the price is right (ebay)? I've read that synching between different versions of the device is hit or miss, but I don't expect that I'll be doing that anyways.

My SliMP3 is still working wery well! It does not feature graphical
display nor digital or headphone output, but "only" line-out. But if you
can live with this constraint there's little reason why not to buy one. A
few weeks back I even saw the SliMP3 with serial #1 in action :-)

In Zürich, Switzerland ;-). Felix Müller was the happy Grand Prize winner
of last year's Squeezebox Plugins Contest
(http://www.slimdevices.com/dev_contest.html). He showed it during the
"SB2 Launch Party".
