Logitech Squeezebox Boom Wi-Fi Internet Radio Review

BigPictureBigSound
3 September 2009
  • Conclusion: The Squeezebox Boom will open you up to a wealth of musical choices from all over the world including your own home network.  It offers excellent sound quality for its size and an easy to navigate user interface.  $299 for a table radio may seem a bit steep but, as they say, you get what you pay for.
  • Pros: Great sound for the size, upgradeable using external powered subwoofer or powered speakers, Easy to navigate through a wealth of content, Simple set-up if you're at last passingly familiar with computers and networking, Built in Wi-Fi
  • Cons: Unexpectedly entered a lengthy firmware upgrade loop on a few occasions but always recovered, Not the least expensive internet radio on the market, 1-minute snooze???

  • Summary: We really liked the Logitech Squeezebox Boom, though arguably setup and feature navigation on the largely similar Philips NP2900 product was easier still. It’s a chunkier device than the Philips but would still fit neatly on a shelf or bedside table and with its hookup with so many online content services you’ll be hard pressed to exhaust its options.

  • Summary: There’s no faulting the Squeezebox for what it does (play music well) or how loud it does it (er, loudly). It’s what it doesn’t do (work without a computer, pick up normal radio) that makes us doubt we can squeeze a full £200 of value from it.

  • Conclusion: The Squeezebox Boom's somewhat convoluted interface is overshadowed by slick design and excellent sound quality.
  • Pros: Compact and attractive. Streams tunes from your PC's music library. Robust audio codec support. Plays Internet radio and services like Slacker, Rhapsody, and Pandora. Speakers offer laudable power. Magnetic remote is easy to keep track of.
  • Cons: Menu navigation can be confusing. System can be slow to retrieve songs from PC libraries, music services.

9 April 2009
  • Excerpt: If you’re familiar with the original Squeezebox network music player, it allowed you to listen to the music on your computer in one location wirelessly over your hi-fi system. Logitech recently acquired the company, and has been making significant advances. One of them is the new Squeezebox Boom. What features does it add and how good is it?
  • Pros: Great sound., WiFi and Ethernet connectivity., Accesses music located on computer wirelessly.
  • Cons: No battery operation., Glossy black finish is a dust-magnet.

  • Summary: The Logitech Squeezebox Boom is an amazing network audio device that is unique in its function and sound. Brilliant audio oozes from the speakers of the Squeezebox from a range of user owned digital media to internet radio sites. As easy as taking the device out of the box, plugging the power adapter in, and connecting to a wireless network the Squeezebox is there to enable users with a plethora of audio enjoyment.
