  1. Agreed the price is a little much, and you can use your PC to connect to your home stereo and play your music source. The duet is for the consumer who doesn’t want to commit their PC to their home stereo (one possible reason). The Duet also comes with an awesome remote that connects via your wireless access point so you don’t have to be in the room to change settings/songs etc. So if you have the money, it is worth it. I have been using mine ever since this review was posted and it has been very handy. If I had the extra money, I’d likely build a media PC and connect that to my home stereo. The media PC wouldn’t have a remote like the squeezebox duet that I could use in other rooms of the house, but if the price of the duet was cheaper than a media PC and all I was looking to just play music, I would favor the Duet.

  2. i dont get it – you can get a laptop with i tunes on it and do the same thing
    get a bluetooth audio link – no?
    400$ is way too much

  3. Correct. The controller is wireless 802.11b/g, and it has an RJ45 also. Wireless is the way to go.

  4. “The controller requires a RJ45 network connection”

    No it doesn’t. Neither does the receiver. It’s all wireless.
