    Use the following code to bring the price down to just £49 delivered - b7b7fyuw9

    Squeezebox

    And it works with all Squeezebox players, not just Duet Receiver.

    Does this work with the touch ?

    Not clear on their website

    *Works with Logitech Squeezebox Classic, Logitech Squeezebox Receiver, and Logitech Transporter network music players.

    Cheers.

    Yes, the Controller will work using either the embedded Media Server in the Touch or with a full Media Server and the Touch as a player.

    At that price its pretty tempting.

    Only just played with the touch last night and as yet am only using the internal server. And I've found, whats been reported elsewhere, that its flaky and not upto the job. I've attached a USB external HD (Western Digital) and it dropped out constantly playing 96/24 material. And its also not exactly quick at browsing my library. So it looks like a new PC server config for me, or a beefy NAS. And with that comes android apps for using my smart phone , so not sure yet how good these are. £49 might be worth a punt.

    Straight out of the box comparing laptop foobar 2K usb isolator into the MDAC to Touch optical/coax into MDAC, I'm still prefering the laptop combo. Convenience wise its no contest and the Touch wins. I just need to squeeze (excuse the pun) a little extra quality out of the Touch. External PSU for starters (so its been reported)

    Cheers
