Hey Peter - you're a month out in the future now - can you jump another year out and tell us how this all pans out? Is the SB4 out yet?

Thanks,

Nick

I herd that on KenRaido. I guess all on here has to to play music with the slim devices. So are they going to go after people who sell mp3 players and slim devices?

What junk to say you can't copy the music off the CD's or your own use!

What are the legalites of mounting a CD (original, not copy) in a drive, and
then sharing the drive? In this case, the person sharing the drive creates
no copies, but simpley allows access to the original CD.

It might have been more expedient to just mention or post the link to the other thread where this topic was beaten to death. I had no idea it had been covered elsewhere.

I know this is a really minor nit, but I've noticed it for a long time.

Slimserver displays, on the Squeezebox and the web page, the bit rate for FLAC
and other lossless material as CBR (Constant Bit Rate). Lossless compression
algorithms like FLAC, ALAC, Monkey's Audio, Shorten, etc, are never constant bit
rate. They must vary with the redundancy in the audio stream.

Well as I read this I'm listening to Lemon Song by Led Zeppelin and the SC7 webpage and the SB3 display both say 820 VBR.

Beaten to death already.
Se the 'End of the squeezebox?' thread.
