    After browsing through the web the cheapest price seems to be from superfi, is cheapest always the best route though?
    Anyone with suggestions or good/bad experiences:lease:

    Cooltopia have the Boom at £169 w free delivery just now.

    I've bought stuff from them before with no stress.

    I'll probably get one of these for the bedroom this weekend.

    Bought plenty of stuff from Superfi down the years. Both in store and online.

    Never had any problems.

    Does anyone know if the boom works with the newly announced napster service and if it can be controlled via the duet remote ?

    Thanks

    I can't see any reason why not, my Boom is on its way from Amazon so I could test it for you in the next couple of days.

    My boom is on its way from ebuyer. The introduction of the Napster and £150 price tag helped me make up my mind on buying! :devil:

    Hi

    I've just ordered a squeezebox boom today through the logitech website.

    The price quoted on the site is £249, but when you put the item in your cart it comes up as £209. I then got 20% off that price by using the code RELAUNCH2009. [I think this code is only valid for October, so only a couple more days]. So the price I paid was £167.20. YAY:).

    Another tip...I accessed the site through Quidco and got 3% cashback into my Quidco account of £5.02 too. Bonus! :thumbsup:

    Hope this is helpful.

    Amazon prices fluctuate a lot and if you are lucky you can get it for 150£ but it's not worth to wait. I would consider 170£ to be a good price for the Boom.

    New ? As far as I know the Boom would neither be replaced nor upgraded. Why mess with a good thing?
