I've been considering a Duet for a while.

If I can literally buy one on the High Street right now I will make the impulse buy.

I tried the PC World website and they don't have them. Where else might I try?

Poole, Bournemouth are closest to me.

PC World do stock them, a friend of mine bought one from there a couple of weeks ago. Selfridges also have them in some stores.

WHOA guy! We understand your impatience, but did you check the website out for dealers? We can't really be of much help of we don't know what city you're in, to say nothing of the country ;)

Best of luck,

Oh where is a dealer list?

I found a page that shows Worldwide resellers but nothing specific.

I called Logitech and they didn't really have any ideas. PC World website didn't list the Duet but I may pop in as I pass them later.

Your best bet is PC World/Dixons. If not, try ripcaster.co.uk to see if they've any in stock. Supply is a bit on the light side, so it may be hard to locate one immediately.

Is it just the impression that I've gotten from the many posts to these forums, or is the Logitech product distribution system a complete joke?

Hi Jim, have you stopped beating your wife?

Equally silly question to ask. If I didn't know better, I'd call it a troll.

Actually, I think he meant me.

Did you get one in the end?

I stopped at PC World but they only had a Classic.

I will call Sevenoaks in a bit and have one ordered in hopefully, as I just remembered that they stock Harmony remotes, thus have an account with Logitech.

I think I prefer Sonos overall, but the Duet is cheaper.

FWIW - Ripcaster sent my Duet with next day delivery (about a month ago). Don't know what their stock level is, tho'.

@darrenwm: If you like flexibilty, plugins and a great product pipeline or have a really -BIG- music collection >50'000, then the Duet is for you.

Right, Sevenoaks are getting back to me later with costs and timescales for the Sonos ZP80 and SB Duet bundles.

I don't have huge collection of music. It's about 13000 tracks, mostly lossless, which comfortably fits on a 500GB external drive.

The Sonos and SB ave their own pro's and con's.

It's a complete and utter joke. I've now been told officially we cannot supply you spares despite the fact that we also know that Logitech in AU won't import the stuff. Basically it's just a case of tough sh1t and go screw yourself, unless you have a friend in the US, because we're not planning on fixing our website so you can at least order spares from us if you're not in the US and cannot source them elsewhere, hell, we won't even let you order them from an Austrlian card, EVEN IF the delivery address is in the US.

Really? Has this changed over the last couple of months? Luckly i have frieds over there that will trust me using their card..

The Distrib system works great over here is Switzerland. You can buy SB3s and Duets in stores (Full lust price - So not a good idea) I don't like the fact that if you want spare parts you can't get them through Logitech..
