I still love my old trusty Squeezebox. I love my Axioms for the increased musical enjoyment they brought but honestly, I think the Squeezebox has done more to rekindle my love of music than maybe even the new speakers did.
As Bob mentioned recently in another thread, too many CDs simply gather dust when you actually had to choose and pull one out to play. I love being able to put my entire music collection on Random mode and being pleasantly surprised by what comes up and with over 7000 songs in my library, "random" can not be overstated. I also love being able to choose a genre and randomize that as well. If you do want a particular album, its just a few clicks and swipes away.
Now that my truck has a stereo deck with a 64Gb USB drive in it, I'm enjoying the same freedom as I drive now too. Streaming and music storage is probably my favourite modern invention.
With great power comes Awesome irresponsibility.
