DSL Wireless Modem Compatible with Logitech Duet?

Will the Actiontec GT701 WG wireless modem, provided by the local telephone company for my DSL service suffice as a wireless router for a music server set-up (utilizing the Logitech Duet)?? What do I need to know ???

If it is a half decent wireless router it should have no problem streaming digital music to the Duet. I do not have the Duet (I have 5 Sonos wireless zones) and my wireless router has no problem streaming digital music and internet radio as well as allowing fast access to the internet.

The thing I would be worried about is if the Duet has a good strong wifi signal from the router. Will the router be somewhat close to the Duet?

The router will be in the same room.

I haven't pulled the trigger on a music server yet. How do you like the Sonos? Have you done, or have there been any, comparisons with the Sonos vs Duet??
If the router is in the same room you will have no issues.

I have not compared Sonos to Duet. I have been a long time user and Sonos. I absolutely love the remote control interface and the ability to easily add multiple wireless zones. If you only need wireless digital music streams in one location, the Duet is fine. If you have a large library, you may want to consider controlling the Duet from a Laptop of PC via the Duet software application.
I’ve compared the Sonos to the Duet. They both have strengths and weaknesses. The Sonos is easier to setup and its mesh networking makes extending a Sonos system throughout a large home a breeze. If you need to extend the range of the system, you can place a bridge anywhere that you have an electrical outlet. The Duet also has the ability to be a wireless access point/bridge also. However, it’s harder to setup, and more expenses ($150 vs. $100) than the Sonos bridge.
When it comes to sound quality, the Duet has a slight edge. In addition, there are more options for modding the Duet, including adding upgraded power supplies. One advantage the Sonos ZP100 (ZP120) has is the built in amplifier; all you need to do is add a pair of speakers and you’re done with a zone. In addition, the Sonos ZP120 has a subwoofer output. While it’s cheaper to pair a Duet with a Parasound Z-amp, which has better sound, it is not as neat or astatically pleasing. The Duet can easily be toggled off, the Sonos requires you to navigate through menus to put each zone in standby; I find it easier to just mute zones. Sonos units can be muted from the unit; the Duet cannot and requires the use of the remote.
When it comes to the remotes, it’s a matter of personal choice. I prefer the Duet remote because it is smaller and lighter and can be operated with one hand, and a thumb, just like an iPod. However, the screen is smaller. In addition, it slips easily into a pocket. The Sonos remote is larger and requires two hands to operate. In addition, it’s really too big and heavy to carry around in a pocket. The advantage of being bigger is the larger display screen. The Duet controller can be configured to become a digital clock when placed in its charging base. Finally, the Sonos has the ability to tie multiple zones together which is great for parties. I’ve never tried this with the Duet, so I cannot comment on it.
I’ve had no problems managing large libraries on either system. I have almost 2400 CD’s and I can find any album in about 30 seconds on either unit. The Sonos software is easier to use and much more intuitive. In addition, Sonos technical support is quicker to pick up the phone. The Sonos supports Napster, Pandora, Rhapsody and Sirius services. The Duet supports Napster, Pandora and Rhapsody and Sirius support is in the works.
The one ability that the Sonos has over the Duet is the option to stream any analog source throughout the entire system. For example, you can plug an iPod docking base into the Sonos unit in the main system and listen to it in the bedroom.
So, it really comes down to personal preference when choosing a Duet or Sonos system. In my opinion, they are both winners.
