It's a good price but can't you get this for £171 unblemished at Dixons (using LOGIT10 code) + 3% Quidco which makes it c. £166.

Jogger flashed with the Squeezebox app, bigger screen and.£50 second hand.

9% Quidco on the Logitech website so approx 153.00 if Quidco tracks.

I have 2 Jogglers running Squeezeplay but am tempted by this as I have had the internal memory fail twice which necessitated replacement units.

What is 'jogger'? - did you mean 'O2's Joggler'?

Me too! Mine is fried at the moment so I need to take it back to o2 and get them to swap it!

I can't find the original email from them proving when I bought it though, and I also can't find an order history on their website :(

These are utter jank... had one and sent it back to Logitech for a full refund.

Don't waste your money.
#10
Thanks millarcat, I've been looking to pick one of these up for some time now, and this is cheap enough for me to finally go for it!

Jonmurgie, what makes it 'utter jank'? It's been well reviewed, and seems to offer good value for money given it's got a half decent DAC alongside the usual Squeezebox features...
#11
Could never get it working properly, and I know tech stuff so not a technophob!

Would continually loose stations, loose connection (hard wired too!) would only occasionally sync to my server and the interface was just generally slow, clunky and overcomplicated.

An example - it would be tuned to Radio 2 and all fine. Turn it off for the day, next day turn it on and it would say it's tuned to Radio 2 but it would be silent, change station to another then back again, it was then fine. Can't be doing that every time you turn it on!

As said, it was hard wired to the router rather than the wifi option, so either the unit was faulty of the Logitech servers for radio were causing issues.

Maybe mine was a lemon, but it put me off the whole Logitech for Music stuff (love their keyboard/mice) so have stuck with Apple ;)

Best of luck getting it replaced - O2 don't sell this anymore - least that's what they told me when I sent it back - refund only! :(

Thanks for posting your experiences - not ideal! I'm not planning to use the radio stations really, and I've got most of my music on a USB HDD, so hopefully I won't run into those problems!

How do you go about doing that!? Thank you.

Love the squeezebox stuff. Server works very well and system seems very stable, updates are frequent too.
#16
I run 2 Squeezebox booms, 2 Classics and a Squeezebox Radio, all running off a QNAP NAS running SqueezeCentre and don't have any issues with any of them, can have them all playing different music at the same time or all sync'd together filling the house with the same tunes.

I love them!
#17
I don't think that issue is restricted to the touch, although I can see it would be more annoying due to the way you interact with it.

I have a squeezeboxx based multiroom audio system (ceiling speakers everywhere and centralised squeezeboxe's connected to an multiroom amp), which we control via our mobiles/laptops. We sometimes have the same issue with radio stations. Generally a pause and play will fix the issue, but sometimes you need to switch station and back again to fix the issue. Given we're controlling it from our phones in our hand its not a major issue. But I can see it might be if you flick the touch on and walk away expecting it to start playing, then have to go back to it.

Can't think of many other gripes with the system to be honest, so would recommend squeezebox based systems to anyone. Very versatile and lots of plugins etc that you can try.

I've only ever experienced the issue with streamed radio, so I think you'll be fine.

Don't buy this if you are planning on using the USB port for anything. Works fine with a few hundred songs, as soon as I got past 2000 it started having problem and with 30,000 it was completely useless. Shame as it is a real nice bit of kit, well it would be if it worked. lol

100% agree that even with 'just' a USB drive attached this unit is an absolute nightmare.

You get nothing but
'Squeezebox server is now restarting"
'Squeezebox server is not started"

I'm a developer and very tech-savvy and get very, very frustrated with this unit continously restarting or crashing or pausing.

Everyday that I use mine something will go wrong.

AVOID, AVOID, AVOID.

?? Have a Touch, runs off USB and a Synology NAS... seems ok to me... What you are missing with the Joggler is the sound quality so it isn't the same. This Touch has a Bur-Brown DAC and the sound quality is excellent amped up through a good hifi. if you are only running it as background through a half hearted little stereo then maybe a joggler is fine.
#22
Fantastic product, works flawlessly, got one for my birthday in January. Mine was bought from Super Fi who sell it for £199.95. I have mine hooked up to a Rega DAC that I bought in Feb. This is a very good value product that works fantastically well as it can be turned into a real Hi Fi source with separate DAC. Why look further/consider a Naim streamer unless you have very deep pockets? Voted HOT HOT HOT!

I was considering getting one of these instead of a QNAP as I only need up to 3 players and was under the impression that it could handle three. What was the problem with the amount of songs?
