Hi Guys,

I am planning to buy a Squeezebox2 and Linkstation NAS.
But I have a few questions before I am going to buy these two.

- Are there any screenshots available from the squeezebox operating with playlists,browsing,searching ...
- How is the speed of the slimserver on a linkstation with large collections ( 80 - 100gb)

These are for me to must importantent questions before I buy anything.

Thx

Hi

Can't answer the volume/linkserver question, but don't bother looking for screenshots ... download softsqueeze (comes as part of the slimserver distribution). Its an excellent emulation of the squeezebox and will show you exactly what the screens, menus etc look like. And its free!

I would just add that if you are satisfied with SoftSqueeze, you will adore the Squeezebox2. In my experience, it is smoother and more reliable than SoftSqueeze (which is not to say that SoftSqueeze is subpar-- it's an excellent and valuable application).

Hi,

Thx for this great information.
I will test it when I'm at home.

Now just the linkstation issue ...

Thx
