While searching for a similar answer, I ran into this unanswered posting
from earlier this year. After doing a bit of font scouting, I believe
the fonts used for the logo are the Bitstream fonts Square 721 Extended
and Extended Bold. The font family is sometimes called Swiss 721. A
similar font, Eurostile T, is also available from a company called URW++
- I'm not sure how closely they match. Both font families are availabe
for a fee: http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/bitstream/square-721/ and
http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/urw/eurostile/. The best deal I found for
the two logo fonts is through the Bitstream SciFi Fun Pack
(http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/bitstream/packages/45004/).

Our corporate fonts is Eurostile Extended 2 and Eurostile Bold Extended
2.

We do try to maintain our corporate identity, so please don't mess with
the logo. There are four treatments that usually work in most
circumstances color on black, color on white, and two monochrome
versions. You can see this here:

And we have a similar design for the Squeezebox logo:

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,

dean

p.s. Square 721 seems to be close, but not exactly the same font.
