Ok... so Logitech's Squeezebox Boom and Duet have been touted as two great ways to bring Slacker into your home audio environment without being tied to the computer. But I'll be honest... after having bought the Squeezebox Duet and spending all this afternoon playing with it, this is one amazing system! It can work two different ways... the first is semi-tethered to your computer, which allows an insane amount of customization, as well as being able to access your [DRM-free] music library. The second is tethered to Logitech's SqueezeNetwork via your internet connection, which doesn't provide as much customization, and also provides no access to your personal music library (except through a couple of online services, but nothing stored on your own computer). But regardless of which you choose, you still have the ability to access Slacker - and a WIDE variety of other internet radio and music services - making it a perfect topic of discussion for this site! The list of services supported includes: Sirius Internet Radio Last.fm Slacker Pandora Live365 Shoutcast RadioIO and MORE! But that's not the only thing that is so amazing about this whole system. Apparently, the whole Squeezebox system - from the desktop software (which is available in Windows, Mac, and *nix flavors) to the device software - is open source, meaning that it's got AMAZING potential for expandability! This is very evident in the Duet's controller, which has an infrared transmitter that isn't currently being used (can we say future Harmony Remote device?!) and an accelerometer that is only being used to sense when you pick the thing up (wouldn't it be cool to be able to just shake it to enable shuffle play?). Combined with some of the built-in features that the system has - including the ability to CROSSFADE (which is AWESOME with Slacker, given that their web interface doesn't have this ability, causing sometimes large gaps between songs) - the Squeezebox experience can greatly enhance the internet radio that you already know and love, while also making it available to your home stereo or bedroom with minimal to no computer tethering (if running the desktop software, your computer has to be on and running the software, but the Squeezebox will still directly access the internet radio service, rather than use your computer as a proxy). I've only used it with Slacker and my own music library at present (in fact, I've disabled some of the other services' plugins in the desktop software so they don't clutter up my controller's screen, since I don't use or pay for those other services), but it seems like a great system given that I've only played with it in depth for a couple of hours. All the details, including links to the Wiki, forums, and other great info, can be found at www.slimdevices.com (apparently Slim Devices was bought by Logitech... the domain still points to a different site than Logitech's, but has all of the info on the various Squeezebox devices).
