    Do you recommend buying a squeezebox?

    The Squeezebox (and Slimp3) are fine products. Just be aware that the
    wireless access isn't always the best. I have my network set up as a
    wireless only (no choice, I'm not going to rewire my house). The
    wireless works just fine "most of the time". but sometimes the music
    just stops. I have isolated it to times when a packet doesn't get
    through, and since the handshake is not very robust, it doesn't
    restart, I have to manually restart the music by by pressing the ->->
    button on the remote.

    I have two Squeezebox, and one Slimp3, I just wish something could be
    done about the keep alive.

    Some folks are going to say "my wireless works just fine". Well, good
    for them, mine doesn't and I don't see a fix in sight, I guess I'll
    just live with it. I just wish there was a device that works like
    Squeezebox/Slimp3, but is more reliable with wireless, maybe someday

    did you change the bitrate limiting to no limit or leave it on the default
    320kbps?

    I have to say that I have mine limited at 128K and it seems pretty stable.
    As my collection is ripped at this speed (or less with WMA) anyway.....
    Sound is great!
