I think Rolando's concern is shared by a lot of people, you see it a lot in other audio forums, for example. We LOVE this product and are concerned that we'll lose it as tech advances and Logitech redirects its priorities in other directions. This is such a superior product that I think Logitech missed the bus in not promoting it more and making it a de facto audio streaming standard. It's that good, so I think it's an opportunity missed. In fact I've commented that I hoped Logitech would sell all the Slimdevice products to someone else who would do exactly that, instead of leatting it gradually go fallow and out of date. Anyway, that's the concern, because we like it so much we just don't want it to disappear.

I am an early adopter of digital streaming. I have a Squeezebox Duet, and bought another receiver for multi-room.
After lots of research, I have learned that digital music is expensive to move, just like analogue music. I learned that "jitter" happens on cheaper cables, or between devices with cheaper power supplies or oscillators. I had thought that if you put 1s and 0s down a cable, the same 1s and 0s would arrive at the other end, but it seems I was wrong! I was also ignorant that my squeezeboxes would never receive resolution above 24bit 48kHz. I should have bought a Squeezebox Touch which allows 24bit 96kHz but this escaped me. Small print?
Now I have abandoned my plan to do a £600 upgrade on my Squeezebox Receiver; I was going to give it a rebuild, power supply and a good SPDIF cable. Instead, I may put a Cyrus Stream X next to my Cyrus 8XPdQX Digital Amplifier (with integrated DAC).
But I'd prefer to buy a (NEW!) Logitech Squeezebox!
Come on guys! ..the ESSENTIAL FEATURES are obvious..
A Squeezebox HD Receiver that does NOT include a DAC (because the HD user HAS a DAC, and does not want to pay again!)
A Squeezebox HD Receiver that will receive 96kHz 24bit by wireless, and 192kHz by wired ethernet, from LMS of course.
A Squeezebox HD Receiver that has audiophile grade components for low jitter transfer.
A Squeezebox HD Receiver that has a heavy metal box, to look serious
A Squeezebox HD Receiver should be targetted at approx £599 retail to hit a nice gap in the market.
A Squeezebox HD Receiver that has an optional Power Supply Upgrade at approx £299
Maybe a USB input to connect a 3rd party audiophile iPod dock.
If you wanted to support UPnP you might hit a MUCH bigger market, but I understand if you'd feel that was letting go of LMS.
