    New Remote

    Ordered a new (backlit) remote 17:50 BST Monday, arrived in the UK 10:50 BST Wednesday.

    Very impressed with both the remote and the speed of delivery.

    This is a quality remote to match the build of the Squeezebox itself. I always thought the original SB3 remote was a bit cheap in comparison...

    I also ordered one for my SB2.
    Indeed, it's a thing of beauty. Very worthwhile upgrade, in my opinion.

    On the 'Buy now!' tab there is a section for accessories!

    Apart from the obvious, how are the backlit remotes different from the SB3 originals? They look identical to me from the pics.

    Did you get hit with import duty/vat? If so how much was it?

    It might be a little early to ask that question.... when I bought my Kurobox from the US, the import duty bill didn't arrive until a month after the Kuro itself!

    The remote currently shipping with the SB3 *is* the same as the backlit remotes (save for the backlight functionality). But all of us who bought squeezeboxes before about November 2006 have a different remote. The new remote is a nice upgrade from the old one.

    I have one of each remote (2 sb3's and a transporter). In order from best to worst imo:

    1. backlit
    2. "new" sb3 remote
    3. "old" sb3 remote

    I've been thinking about picking up another backlit for the bedroom SB3.

    The only thing I don't like is the backlit remote only lights up the icons not the text. This is only ever a problem when I am trying to type in text with the remote for searches in the dark, which isn't that often.
