Has anyone seen the (comparative) review of Squeezeboxes in the May 18th PC
Magazine yet?

Is anyone writing a reply to them as regards the bits they appear to have
missed out on?

I just read it last night...wasn't a bad review although left out a
few things IIRC. Overall rating was 3/5. It was being compared to
"media hubs" - many of the other devices in the review also handle
video and other media.

I believe this is related to an observation I made earlier.
SoftSqueeze appears to be using the default WaveOut device
rather than the default DirectSound device. This will likely
lead to slightly different processing by your sound card
drivers; I know it does on mine. I believe Richard is looking
into this.
