    Poor old Logitech ....

    I had a look at the Logitech Spanish site today ... very sad to see all those excellent products we once knew so well have disappeared. What went wrong?

    I wonder how differently Steve Jobs would have managed the product line. Considerably, I imagine.

    Probably would have been expensive upgrades every few months & would only work with paid iTunes!

    Certainly different; however, that isn't the alternative I would have hoped for.

    But they'd still be making the products instead of just abandoning them. I'd gladly take that compromise.

    If you want the equivalent of a Squeezebox made by Apple then I'd say Sonos is pretty close.

    My thought exactly.
    Iĺm down to one SB Touch. Mac Mini as a server (OS X Yosemite). iPeng is my controller of choice. LMS 7.9.0. Erlandĺs plug ins are what keep me in the ecosystem.
