So I just installed SC7, and I have to say, I'm extremely impressed. Great graphic design, much improved usability, more responsive and modern AJAXy feel, much better SqueezeNetwork integration, and just generally a lot more professional and usable looking.

This is one of the biggest improvements I've seen in SlimServer. A big pat on the back to everyone involved. Now I'm really eager for a) the Duet to ship (preordered at Amazon), and b) Yahoo to transfer our Yahoo Unlimited account over to Rhapsody, so I can try the Rhapsody integration out.

(And also, how amazing is it that the Squeezebox 1 that I bought four years ago gets this kind of major improvement for free? That's really sort of otherworldly support.)

Thanks snarlydwarf.

Great...YMU @192kbps to RR @160kbps.
Blechh!

Going from barely tolerable quality to "can't wait to turn this off".
And I just purchased a 2 for 1 year subscription from Yahoo.

"But the announcement with Yahoo is shrouded in uncertainty, for obvious reasons. Just about anything could happen to Yahoo if Microsoft's proposed $44.6 billion acquisition goes through"
- let the games begin!

mkozlows - my apologies for the hijack.
I agree, SC 7.0 - definitely coming up!

Cheers all!

Well, the big question is whether or not SqueezeCenter 7 supports Firmware 15.

Of course it would, at a FW15 level.
Some of the hard earned improvements won't be available with SC7/FW15 over SC7/FW<current>

Glad to hear it is so great. I can't wait to install, but must wait for Thecus module to be released.

I thought the "conventional wisdom" on that is that the post 83 firmwares have restored the magic that people feel about 15.
