    Spare Duet Receivers

    I have 3 Duets (maybe 4 if the spare still works) but I am only really using the controllers to operate my SB3s and some Sonos speakers... I don't use the receivers at all. Is there any interest in somebody buying just the unused receivers? I don't know if anybody would find them useful without the controllers?

    I'm not looking to get any more receivers, but wanted to comment on their usefulness without a controller. A receiver can be set up without a controller using the NET::UDAP utility from Robin Bowes. Once a receiver has been setup it can be controlled from any Squeeze controller app or the webUI. Also if you already have a controller, they are not tied to a specific receiver and can be used to set up any number of receivers.
    Main system - Rock Solid with LMS 7.9.3 Official on WHS 2011 - 2 Duets and Squeeseslave
    Cabin system - Rock solid with LMS 7.9.3 Official on Win10 Pro - 1 RPi 3 Model B/Hifiberry DAC+ Pro/PiCorePlayer and Squeezeslave
    Squeezebox Boom - "At Large" player around both home and cabin
    Headphones and car - Android phone/Bluetooth w/full library on MicroSD card - PowerAmp music player app (similar to Material Skin)

    Sorry they are in the US. I just had a bad experience trying to ship something to Australia so I'm not doing any more overseas shipping until the world is virus free and back to normal (assuming that ever even happens).

    too bad... but I can understand you very well. I also had quite long transfer times lately from the US to Europe due to Corona circumstances.

    All the best & have phun

    Sorry I have not been checking back very often lately. I am planning to go through my old audio stuff in the next week or so as I try to clean out the basement. I will double check the condidtion of the receivers (and Boom and SlimP3s etc) I have down there and confirm they are still where I left them.

    Hi upstatemike,
    I'd be interested in the boom if you're thinking about getting rid of it.
    Thanks,
