Thinking about getting a Squeezebox. It looks to be a great solution. Is it true that music purchased from the iTunes Store can't be played?

As long as the music is DRM protected you can't play it on the SqueezeBox. If I've understand it correctly Apple has recently started to sell some of the music without DRM protection, previously all their music had DRM protection.

However, you can get rid of the DRM protection by burning the purchased music to a standard CD (not MP3 format) and then rip the music from the CD to MP3/ACC/FLAC or whatever format you like. The music that you rip from the CD will not have any DRM protection and can be played on the SqueezeBox.
