Hi guys,

Looking to get another SB for the garage / garden but used prices on SB3s are still high. There's a few SB2s and SB1s around but I don't know how they compare to the Mk3 (which I have).

I know everyone is on about the Duet right now but can anyone point me at the features / performance comparison between the SB models in wireless mode? Must have been done but Search is not my friend right now.

Thanks.

Graeme

Look near the bottom of the main page for the HardwareComparison link.

SB2 is same guts as SB3, the 3 just has a nicer looking package.

Would not recommend SB1, they don't do flac natively, and have smaller
buffers. Unless you do all MP3 -- if so, they can be a deal.
