Amazon has the Squeezebox Duet for $169 today only. Other than the Circuit City closeouts, this is the best price I've seen!

Forgot to mention that the Boom is also on sale for $169.

That's a heck of a price as the CONTROLLER alone is typically more expensive that this!

And on top of that, Amazon has an additional $35 coupon for the Boom - making the final price $134. Amazing bargain!

Is it about to be discontinued?

eganders, where are you finding the $35 coupon?

Can the Duet controller be used to control the Touch?

Thanks.

There's a link to a Mail in Rebate on Amazon. And yes, the controller can control any Squeezebox.

Second line below $169.99 Sale Price.

I believe the Duet Controller will control all SB Products. It works for the Boom.

SBController controls SBServer, which controls all SB players

Thanks guys, I just snagged two additional Booms to add to the family. $339.88 and I'll get $70 in rebates from Logitech. Excellent value!

I almost bought a third but only two rebates per household. But still, at $169 it's still an outstanding buy.

i can't see an equivalent UK offer.

Booms are gone already.

Thanks for the tip! I jumped right on this and snagged a 2nd Duet for the basement stereo. This price is UNBELIEVABLE, makes me think it's being discontinued??

I too snagged a Duet in addition to the two booms. The Duet is already shipped but no estimated ship date on the booms.

If they are being discontinued that's probably a good indicator that new models are around the corner.

Looks like the $169.99 Duets are gone too.

I think I may have got the last 3 because it told me only 2 were available and then a second attempt got me the third one!

Great deal.

Finally got an email from Amazon today and it looks like they found the booms to fulfill my order. All three (boom x 2 and duet x 1) will be here Wednesday. I was getting a little worried they'd sold too many and wouldn't be able to fulfill my order.

So, is it time to start speculating why Amazon is clearing out their SB stock?

I've been wanting to jump on the Squeezebox bandwagon for awhile. I grabbed two Boom's with this deal and can't wait for them to come! I'm sure they're probably being discontinued (not on their website anymore), but that's OK. They will be replaced by something that is WAY more than $135, I'm sure.

Boy, that'll teach me to check this forum on weekends, too. I love my Boom and had actually been thinking about getting one for my wife's studio. I like the Duet, too, but don't know what I'd do with a second!

I hope they replace it with a boom that has a color LCD between the speakers.

Over in the Duet forum there's a thread titled "Ancient OS on Controller?" from a person that apparently bought one of these on sale Duets from Amazon. Sounds like it may be a demo or beta unit that can't be updated to current software. I'll find out next week if I'm in the same boat since I also bought one of these on sale units.

My two booms and duet came in and the duet controller updated to the latest version firmware for me just fine. I still don't have a second sound system yet to hook the receiver up to, but plan on getting one for my birthday in April.

+1 That will SO improve the sound.

I don't recall saying it would improve the sound, but if you say so...

By way, Amazon currently has the Duet for $228...

Not nearly as good a price as they had last weekend, but still a pretty good deal, FWIW.
