I am very tempted by this.

Pity there is no track info shown or list of tracks available to select, though.

I wonder what a better one would cost.

Voted hot though. Def Bargain. Thanks.

anyone know if you have to plug the receiver into a powered amplifier or is the receiver a powered amp and just needs speakers attached to it??

**never mind, just read the review and see that you need to connect it to an existing hi-fi system via phono leads**

By "better one", do you mean the Logitech Wireless DJ?

Cheapest I could find it at the time was on eBay though it is arounf £100, but well worth the extra over the basic model on offer here. Best feature is being able to see details of track playing and choose songs without having to get up from sofa or having to try and read a display on a box at a distance.

Yes, the Squeezebox (actually comes under the Logitech brand now) is an excellent bit of kit but at £200 it should be! Best part is being able to listen to Internet radio without the need for a PC (obviously need a wireless modem/router to do this).

As for the Logitech, it sounds like it works but "wireless" it may be between sender and receiver but have you seen how many cables you need to connect the sender and receiver to PC and speakers respectively. Cable hell. Surely easier just to get one, long, single cable :-)

No "cable hell" at all! The transmiter box plugs into the USB socket of PC, Then, in another room remote base unit plugs into back of hi-fi aux. socket and into mains PSU.

nearly ordered this from Komplett at a very similar price but have ordered now from here - thanks to the OP.

IMO unless you have very thick walls or want to get results over 200ft+ then this will be adequate for most of your needs. The lack of ability to see the track name is the only major drawback that I can see.

Cannot comment on the Logitech Wireless DJ but the Squeezebox is a mature product with good support. It's just been bought by Logitech - not sure what effect that will have... Obviously it streams your PC's music collection without any trouble at all (the quality of sound generated by the unit is very good) but what differentiates it from the other boxes are its online capabilites.

E.g. you can listen to internet radio without a PC but that's just the start...

I've only had experience of owning a Wireless DJ model so I can't comment on the pros & cons of the other ones but, as for the Logitech ... it's been great just one niggle really. I have receiver in the kitchen and operation of Microwave interferes with transmission of wireless signal for a few seconds when first switched on but probably that wouldn't be a problem if installed in a different room. I'd also we wary of installing it where the transmitter and receiver are too far apart or has to transmit through too many walls. Having said that, I haven’t tested it going through more than one wall. Only other inconvenience is that your PC has to be switched on. As far as I know, the Logitech is the only one where the song display is on the remote and therefore in your hand where ever you may be, so it's easy to see from the comfort of your sofa, no need to get up and read a display on a box or try to strain reading it from a distance. Sounds as good as playing CD's but of course it can only ever be as good as the source mp3/wma material. Internet radio stations are set-up in Windows Media player and will then appear listed on the remote. The jukebox feature is a favourite, great for passing the remote around friends at a party who can add their selection of songs to the end of the playlist. Logitech were slow to get it Vista compatible but at least they are very active in looking after this product by updating and adding new features which download and update the remotes hardware automatically.

In comparision, the Squeezebox...
(1) Remote is cheap. But the size of text (and brightness) on the main unit is configurable.
(2) Very good quality (read the blurb)
(3) Can listen to Internet radio with or wihout PC (lots of other Internet related stuff too)
(4) Vista problems here too, currently being discussed here :-
http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=32578

To sum up, you certainly wouldn't want to pass the Squeezebox remote around at a party! It deserves better than that.
Cheers
