John, I still get direct marketing ads from Sonos salesperson. But they still cost $200 more than the Duet, so I will give Duet a try first. Maybe their price will drop when Duet starts making traction, but that will take a year before general public comes as aware of Duet as they are of Sonos. I really just need an interactive handheld menu and digital output for the DAC. It's nice that there is finally some competition in that niche. I hope they both continue to sell strong so a $49 version will be available from Sharp/Target in a couple years. haha

Well, it seems Slimdevices is claiming a March 7th ship date on pre-orders.   You can find this at http://www.slimdevices.com/pi_duet.html

Well, it's March 7th.. Slim Devices is saying they upgraded all pre orders to 2nd day, so hopefully it will be in Bryan's hot little hands shortly. Now, I just need to win this thing. :)

First there was the equal division of all names of folks who have donated:


Followed by an impartial party to draw the names... (She really couldn't care less)


Then the recipient of a brand new Slim Duet is.....


BillC! :)  Congratulations!  :clap:

Thank you again to everyone that donated... The donations completely covered the cost of the Duet and had enough leftover to pay a month of hosting... However, Bryan P at BSP and Glenn at GIK stepped up and donated a year's worth of banner ads so, AN will be running strong for another year or more to come!  And no need for more donation drives! :)

The Duet will be delivered directly from Bpape.  Bill, please contact Bryan with your address.

Thanks again,
Carl

Ditto! Enjoy! Report!

That's great to hear - many thanks to Bryan P @ BSP, and Glenn @ GIK!

Carlman, thanks for making this opportunity happen, as well as all you do for AN. :beer:

Carl, all AN members,

WooHoo!  Thank you !     :beer:

I am dancing around the room.  Cool.   Extraordinary.   :rofl:

and WOW!    :D

I have been thinking of heading in this equipment direction recently, and trying to figure out my next step.  This should get me going !

I never win anything!  This is so unbelievable.

A gigantic THANK YOU to Carl, for setting this up, and AudioNervosa, for a great audio site.  Between finding my great Grover IC's, and learning and sharing info about the many faces of high end audio, and now this raffle win, color me OVERJOYED !  Actually, I am not sure what color that is, but it's a happy color.

Thank you, again, all.  It is great to be part of the AN community.
