...talk me out of buying the Duet. I pre-ordered it over a month ago. They called me yesterday and said "you know that the Duet cannot stream DRM music like iTunes..." I said, yep - I know. They said "we can cancel your order if you like..." I said "nope, I still want it." They said "It is shipping on the 27th, are you sure?" I said "yup."

Firstly, why are they trying to talk me out of it? Secondly, why is it shipping so late!!!?

Logitech should look into this. Having retail boycotting your products is a sure way to failure.

Any reason you're not buying it from Slim Devices? Looks like it's the same price at Crutchfield.

I got a pretty good discount at Crutchfield for placing other orders through them...

Could that be why they wanted you to cancel the order? They maybe realised they weren't going to make any money out of the transaction.

Yes, could very well be. I still don't really like it.
