I am just required to run the Squeezebox Server software on the same machine as iTunes to do the "interpreting" between iTunes and the Squeezebox player(s)?

To redress the balance....
Anything is easier if you've had problems with something else. And I realise that personal preferences also come into play. But for most users, the set-up on the SoundBridge is every bit as simple as with a Squeezebox - I have both products in use. As for the menus - again I think that is personal choice - I prefer the SoundBridge menus myself. And the big negative against Squeezebox for me (but not for everyone, I will accept) is the fact that one is required to run their proprietary server software, rather than a regular light-weight UPnP server as may be found on many NAS boxes. At least SoundBridge gives you choice of multiple servers and of multiple server types (iTunes, Firefly, multiple UPnP servers, and even Sqeezebox Server can be used).
