As I state , limited availability , you might be lucky .

Reserved one at my local store but not sure if i really need it. Will sleep on it....

Managed to reserve on at PC world so may be worth checking them if you have no luck at Currys.

Never thought of them , just reserved another one nearer home .

I have one of these and its awesome. There is now an app for iphone and I think Android to operate this from your smartphone, brilliant for playlists and entertaining. You can also download your music to mp3 Locker to play when computer is off.

Got mine, and saw at least one left in the shelves of the Putney High Street store in London.

It seems the regular in-store price is no different from this deal, which is great!

Amazing price if you can get it. Cost me about £250 a couple of years ago. Great bit of kit with top notch DAC. The only down side is that it can have a mind of its own. Only the other week, running fine no problem then it decided to stick two fingers up at me and not connect to the server s/w (not the first time). Eventually got the bl**dy thing to work this time by installing the beta version of the server s/w 7.6.0. Seems ok so far. Can be fussy about routers, so be careful.

1 available in Stirling.

Like Bazza said - good deal if you can get it.....checked a few postcodes....Pompey - nothing; MidKent nothing;

I've put various postcodes in of friends roun the country - Plymouth / Kingston / Kent / Belfast and found it in 1 store in Lisburn - N.I.

However - going to PCWorld - if you're over the IOW for the weekend.....there's one in Newport! But nothing near Manchester / Newcastle (M1 / NE1 postcodes!)

And there's some in PCW Catford (putting E1 in the Postcode checker) - but again thats the 1 store....

Where did you get 7.6.0 from ?

PCW Garston has stock.
Unfortunately too far for me.

hi guys

what you'll find is that smaller pc worlds and curries only have 1 item in stock which their stock system treats as store float (and doesnt discount or show up on line)

i remember looking at it pre the deal in wimbledon pc world and when i went in it was fully priced still ... i asked the young kid to check the price with the store manager and got it for the deal price ... problem is dixons group stock control system .... have a look in your local store and make sure you ask the manager and not one of the young kids serving

about the kit ... i owned the classic version which was great (fast) with a very large music collection ... i'm a bit disapointed with the duet .. its far slower (handset latency as with a caching phone controller app its way faster) plus the back plastic controller case is poorly made/fitting and creaks like hell ... come on logitech you can do better .... not complaining as the receiver box on its own is rarely discounted below £90 but the controller handset is slower (affect on system speed) and lower build quality than the old squeezebox 3's (in fact the phone apps ive got for the sbs are way better in functionality, bigger screen display res (the controller:is very low res horizontally) and critically as they cache cover art and database way way faster with large collections :-(

but at this price its a buy

Picked one up yesterday for this price. not sure i wanted it though but was a shame to see it sitting there on its own. These retailed at well over £200 and even now the remotes are selling for over £130

Amazing price. No stock for me but then I've got one already. Grab one if you can - ps pc world have a discount code NWRK10 for networking products - may work for this?

Theres 1 in stock in PC world Lancaster; too far for me, but may be useful for someone

Got one of these a cpl of years ago for a lot more than this. The controller bricked inside a week after a firmware update but Amazon swiftly exchanged it. The other poster is right about the quality of the handset though. It is creaky and the scroll wheel operation could learn a few tricks from an early Ipod.
For what the handset costs it should be better.
Looks cool sitting in its silver dock though atop our hi-fi stack with the clock glowing. Expensive clock but still.(_;)

So this is a receiver/convertor for pluggin into your amp is that right?

I'm really after a portable/mini system for my daughter that can connect to my PC and stream MP3's. I've had a dig about but not much seems to exist on that front?

What about squeezebox boom or squeezebox radio?

Hm yeah, thanks for those. The Boom is really the one I'd want to get but at the price of the Squeezebox radio!

£160 delivered at dabs ??

Using the web based "collect at store" is unreliable - The collect at store option will only declare stock if they have more than 3 in stock. Otherwise, ring central customer support centre and they will check a central database to see which branches has undeclared (<3) stock. I got the squeezebox this way the other day. Customer services even rang a branch to put one of their 2 available aside for me to collect later that day. Get ringing....

I used " collect at store " , it declared 1 in stock , I went & got it after phoning to confirm it was there .

ffs none in stock locally grr

I bought the receiver alone for £90 then hacked it to be run by my iPhone. All you need is an app like ipeng to control it. Don't see the need for this expensive remote I you have an iPhone.

By your pricing then your getting a full colour screen remote that can be used as a standalone player with headphones for £30 .

No brainer .

hi guys,

if you check out the logitech forums, theres a confirmation that come the end of the clearance sales going on at the mmt. the official "discontinued product" sign will go up on the duet ...

hopefully logitech will replace it with a better product (its many years old after all and pretty dated in terms of display and manufacturing quality and critically its dead slow for large collections due to its lack on on handset database and album art caching

The phone (and increasingly tablet apps) are killers for this type of pricey handset if the quality isnt there

saying all of this I have got one of these from PCWorld for this price purely as the receiver box is A1 and virtually never discounted below £90 .. so £30 for a controller isnt a bad price ;-)

I have an old win mobile handset and HD2 app for squeezebox which leaves the duet controller in the dust in terms of speed, functionality and display size .. now ive upgraded to a new handset its perfect as a dedicated sbs controller ..

logitech could really get a chinese 5 inch wifi only android tablet preloaded with suitable controller app software and flog it for the same price as the duet and make a killing with little manufacturing & development costs .. i would expect them to go down this branded oem route

Picked on up from PCW at Enfield. Was the last one available.

Thanks Op.

Picked one up from PC World in Edinburgh last night. Was the last one, but they had a Squeezebox Radio and a Squeezebox Touch both marked down also. Can't remember the prices, something like £100 and £200 respectively.

Incidentally I did a stock check Sunday morning on both PC World and Currys and both said there were none available. Happened to be in there for some other things, figured it was worth a check and, voila, there was one on the shelf.

Returned this afternoon from Currys / PC World at Birstall (Leeds M62 J27) - there was one fully boxed Duet on the shelf for £119.99 - couldn't quite justify it so didn't buy it - shame they didn't have a Boom for £70.

I would've bought it off you and gave you a few quid for your trouble
