touchscreen is on the base unit - not that good for those who spend their time relying more heavily on the remote

I might have given this unit a bum rap. I'm sure it's still really nice, and a decent upgrade over the Classic. Still wish they kept the Classic around in some form. Might just have to pick one up sometime the next time I'm in the US.

Do not want. Consider me unimpressed and somewhat butthurt! Things are not looking up for the Squeezebox. It's really too bad. Hopefully Logitech can improve, but somehow I doubt it. Just bought a used but in good condition Slim Devices Squeezebox 3 classic with after-market PSU. Consider it a quality investment at $200, compared to this at a completely unjustified $400 here in Canada. Isn't my dollar worth more than yours yet?

It's the cost of being Canadian. Over-priced goods from the US. Over-priced shipping. And then we get taxed to the hilt. My advice. Don't buy it. If all Canadians refuse to buy US goods at these inflated prices it'll really hurt these companies. (Yeah! Right!)
