I received an email invitation to complete a Logitech survey concerning my "Squeezebox Classic". Just want to let y'all know that I said the hardware was great but that maybe more resources(time & money)should be dedicated to perfecting/updating/clearing all bugs in the "free" software that makes it all run. I suggested that maybe punching out hardware was moving a little faster than punching out the corresponding software. Then I did the survey again for every Squeeze device I own, paying special attention to the initial (permanent? OK, talk amongst yourselves...) problems of the Duet being pushed out the door ?prematurely? with the customer base providing the beta test bed for the hardware/software.

Does that sum up what I've read on these forums? I myself had initial issues with the Duet but now it seems to work nicely. Be on the look out for this survey....

What's the sense in filling out a survey and conveying the impression that you've gotten from reading the forums? If you're not having any problems, then isn't that the message you should convey?

There are many hundreds of bugs in the software, but if the project were shut down tomorrow my Squeezeboxes would continute to do just about everything that I ask of them. The software catalogs my FLAC library and plays it back on all of my Squeezeboxes flawlessly.

my hardware unfortunately has issues with internet streams that don't trip up other non-slim players.

and while i like that the software will do a great many local things, and some of them even well, overall i don't like using it. i'd rather just have winamp power the hardware.

i have no idea how much longer i will use it. it depends mostly on if anyone ever develops a different solution with equal audio/hardware quality.
