Hi All I need some help. I am considering a purchase of a SB touch and SB reciever. the reason is i need music from my wifi or cable network to play in two rooms at the same time. is this possible? the volume control and all the amplifiers and stuff i can sort out its not clear on the logitech site if this is possible, also can this be controlled by a iphone app? or will main control come from the touch. I am not even sure if i have got the right combination of products to make this happen any help would be great

cheers

Yes, it's possible. Setting up an SBReceiver without a controller (ie, the SBController that comes with the Duet package) is officially unsupported, but doable. Search the forum for 'UDAP' and you'll find it.

You can control both units with a touch... or with an iPhone... or with the web interface (assuming you are using a PC for a server and not the touch itself).

You may or may not have the right units for your needs... Hard to say. The Radio and Boom are also very nice products, so if you need/want integrated speakers those work well in many situations.

The product line is very much 'mix and match'... the only gotcha I can think of is the SBR's need (officially) to have an SBC to configure it, but you can get around that.

I highly recommend the iPeng app for your iphone or itouch. And yes, you can do what you are trying to do easily, with the caveat mentioned about the initial setup of the receiver without the controller.
