Might be picking up one of these, original Slim Devices SB3's.
If I upgrade the firmware to the latest release, will it be the equivalent of the last of the Logitech branded SB3's or are there internal hardware differences?
Sorry for the dim question!

Also, can I upgrade the PSU for it by using a SB Touch psu which measures better and gives out a lot less noise.


Thanks!

maybe an obvious question, but just wanting to know that Slim Devices branded SB3 can run latest firmware etc.

Thanks.

There is absolutely no hardware difference. Even the older Squeezebox 2, which is internally nearly identical to the SB3, can run the latest SB2/3 firmware.

Thanks very much. :)

Is it right the SB3 and Touch voltage and input plug are identical too?
In other words can I use a Touch PSU with the SB3?


thanks.
