Just ordered the black squeezebox, the order was confirmed and shipped the same day (today), i was shocked at how quickly they processed it, already off to a good start.

I plan on using the new rhapsody direct integration (so i don't have to run rhapsody on my machine.) I believe it works through squeezenetwork. If i do this do i even need to install the slimserver? I have a lot of ripped music but I also have that same music in my rhapsody library as streams so i am not desparate to play my local versions, i would rather have one rhapsody library to play my playlists from (i assume i would have access to my rhapsody playlists as long as they only include streamed music?)

Also, if i use rhapsody through the squeezenetwork would i still have the option of syncing multiple squeezeboxes to play the same music?

thanks for the help, now i just have to check my ups tracking every couple of hours to satisfy my impatience :)

Nope you don't even need to install a SlimServer if you only want to use SqueezeNetwork. However, there is no ability to sync this way. And yes, Rhapsody playlists will be fine.

Good to hear my playlists are good to go, didn't think the syncing would work, oh well, you can't have it all.

I wonder if that is something that could be a future enhancement if you integrate direct rhapsody connectivity into the slimserver (i think i read it might be coming in version 7), or would it just be technically impossible, even then?

Thanks,
Peter

In SlimServer 7 it should sync OK. You can already sync Rhapsody over UPnP.

Looking forward to its arrival.
