You would think a product as hot as the Squeezebox Duet with a price point of $400 would be everywhere but even the big electronics retailers Best Buy and Circuit City don't sell it.

Does anyone know if the Duet is available locally in New Jersey?

Do they have FRY'S, Magnolia Audio Video (Tweeter's high end stores) or Brand Smart in Jersey? Those are the local retailers that sell them here. You can always go online and order one from Slim Devices or Crutchfield.

Frys has a store in Georgia, and some in Texas.

> Magnolia Audio Video

Their website says they have stores in CA, OR and WA
Not too east coast

There are tweeters all over, but they are not close to high end.

> or Brand Smart

Georgia and Florida only

Its probably good that there are no Fry's in the East, or I'd spend all
of my money there. I love the Fry's in Palo Alto.

Unfortunately none of those stores exist in NJ or PA (Tweeter is in PA but I don't believe they carry the Duet).

Actually I had one on order from Buy.com ,ordered Monday with 3-5 day shipping. Now it's Friday and they're saying it will be delivered next Tuesday. Really wanted it for the long weekend so I'm trying to find one locally.

Hello Pat,

Not sure I understand your post. I was not asking any questions. I was making suggestions for possible places for the OP to look for retail of Squeezebox products. As is the case with most websites, they are not always up to date. Fry's is not even listed as a retailer on the Slim Devices website but I have seen Squeezeboxes on their shelf every time I have been in there.

Atlanta has multiple locations for Fry's, Brand Smart, and Magnolia. I did make a mistake though in that Best Buy not Tweeter owns Magnolia. So I guess in a way, Best Buy does carry Squeezeboxes.

I didn't mean to infer that Tweeter was high end. I was saying that Magnolia was higher then Tweeter, but that should have been higher then Best Buy. A step up on the Audio Video rung then your average big box consumer electronics store.

At any rate, I can only speak for my local area. I was making suggestions to look for those stores in his area or stores similar to them. Because again, the web is not always up to date.

I did a quick check, and none of the stores you suggested are within
1000 miles of New Jersey

Yes it's sad. I guess I'm waiting for Tuesday and that's if the driver leaves the package (instead of waiting for a signature). This would have been the perfect weekend to spend alot of time with it.

So why aren't these incredible devices sold everywhere?

Same thing here in Atlanta. And I believe it was weekend before last that Best Buy had a Duet ad. The Duet is going Consumer Big Box!

Circuit City advertised Duet for $349.99 on August 17th. I'm sure this is only because I pulled the trigger and bought one direct two weeks ago for $399! Story of my life...

I've seen them in Ultimate Electronics. Though, I got mine shipped in from Magnolia.
