Just wanted to drop a line to development..I picked up a "classic" on the advice of a friend and wow, my wife and I aren't quite sure how we lived without it for so long! Great product. It solves a lot of our problems.. Worth every penny.

It is good isn't it? :)

I would be really stuck without my Classics and my Boom, the only CD player I own now is in my car :)

Glad you like it. Next you'll be wanting a boom for the bedroom/kitchen, and a Controller so you can browse better from the couch. :-)

Hi,

When I start the stream in a browser it takes a long time to start,
30 seconds or more. It seems like it is downloading more than it needs
to. It gets Quicktime and I have tried many things to reset this with
no luck.

Also, there are several setting for random playlists, but they do
not seem to do anything.

Finally, as a stream, would others hear the same thing as me, like a
radio?

Don't even procrastinate: after getting the controller you'll wonder how
you managed to cope without it :)

Don not quite sure what you mean by listening in a browser but basically once it is set going SC starts streaming immediately it is then up to the app in the browser how long it chooses to buffer the stream before it starts playing it.

The SB hardware is in active communication with the server all the time so they can discuss how full buffers are and fill them accordingly so can play a lot sooner.

Each stream is unique to the player and they get their own, even browsers so whilst they may play exactly the same time and at exactly the same time they are independent streams. For synchronised SBs they are still multiple independent streams just kept in time by the server. (Browser streams can't be synchronised if I remember correctly.)

Those servers must be incredibly busy to process all the streams to everybody, and 99.999% of the time with no audible glitches. It really does work remarkably well.

My family's reaction was exactly the same !! And a year later they still love it. :)

I was trying to remember the last time I played a CD...about the week before I got my SB3 I think. :) I don't even use them in the car as I use my Ipod Classic and XM tuner. I rip them and put them in a box.
