Hah, maximum range is 330 feet. It's hard to carry my stereo that far. It's also difficult to plug the stereo into a tree.

Nice! I've been pondering a remote system for a few months. Klunk aside, I might go get this 8)

My bedroom seems to be "signal challenged" for radio, and I like sleep music without having to burn CD's.

Hack #1 borrow/play all your neighbors music
Hack #2 blast your neighboring Logitech Wireless Music users out with your choice of music, at say 3am.

I might get something like this. I'td be nice to run speakers out on the back porch without having to worry about wires through walls. Cool Idea.

Pretty cool little gaget, but not something I would buy for myself I don't think.
Besides, my Bose's remote works through the whole house anyway.......

I like the idea, I like the product, but I don't like the hassle. If Logitech is to appeal to the masses it's going to have to make things simpler. I think this would be an excellent product without the trouble it takes to get it set up correctly. No doubt, for the enthusiast this is great, and I'm sure a lot of people will pick it up, but for price and trouble, it's not on my list.

Yeah I'm dying for a wireless speaker system so that I can put one down all over the apartment without bothering with the wires snaking around everywhere. It would be pretty cool if I could link several of this type speakers to have them act in concert.

I must have been lucky as I found this system virtually installed itself.
However, lately I am having a few breaking-up and distortion problems. I have been told that it could be my microwave or cordless phone. I have the sustem in my lounge, approx 16 mts from my office. I have even had it playing on a stereo outside. Mostly it plays well and the sound is great, but as I said there are times I have a lot of distortion & breaking up. Something must be interupting the signal.
I agree it would be nice to have a display and the remote is hopeless unless I am standing virtually in front of the stereo
I am using Windows Media player and have tried it through Rivers Media Centre, still the problems at times

Appreciate any advise
Thanks

Sounds like something is interupting the signal for sure... have you dont tests by turning some devices off one at a time to see if the problems persisted?

Default Wireless problems

Anyone has have problems seperating computer noise from media (winamp) music. The "Music Anywhere" taps/dropdowns don't even appear on the properties menu?
Thanks for help if you got it.

Can you play music through this device and the computer speakers at the same time.

I want to have music i the kitchen at the same time as the office.

Thanks.

No I don't think so. If you had two of the bases, then perhaps, but since it doesn't I don't think it's possible. I am not saying for sure it's not possible, but it's been quite a while since I've played with this.

Just bought the Logitech Music Anywhere, and here's what I got: system set's up itself, and sounds great...until...
first a little distortion, then more and more. Doesn't matter where the receivers are. I put the the two devices a foot or so apart, with the exact same results. Checked on the Logitech website, and multiple posts report IDENTICAL problem. Bug in the system? You be the judge--buyer beware!
