My Squeezebox Touch gave up the ghost a couple of weeks back.
Initially, I had high hopes of a replacement under warranty. Reading AVForums, I found a guy who had exactly the same problem, and Logitech replaced a 3 year old unit - mine is 2 and a half.
For some reason I can't fathom though, they're refusing to do the same for me.
I have made an appeal for fairness, but I'd guess it's not looking good.
Assuming that they refuse, and bearing in mind that the Squeezebox is, ridiculously, no longer made or supported, what alternatives are out there?
I actually have possession of a Cambridge Stream Magic 6 - as I was a Beta tester. In a lot of ways it is better than the Squeezebox - it's completely over-specced for my needs. Given its value (sells for £700!
), the over-specced-ness, and it not matching the Squeezebox for flexibility, I was going to sell it once I was sure no further testing was required. Maybe now it's the best solution I'll get though.
The Sonos Connect seems to tick most boxes (and not as expensive as I'd assumed Sonos stuff would be). But no headphone out. No screen.
