Logitech Squeezebox Boom Wi-Fi Internet Radio Review
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. $299 for a table radio may seem a bit steep but, as they say, you get what you pay for.
Pros: Great sound for the size, upgradeable using external powered subwoofer or powered speakers, Easy to navigate through a wealth of content, Simple set-up if you're at last passingly familiar with computers and networking, Built in Wi-Fi
Cons: Unexpectedly entered a lengthy firmware upgrade loop on a few occasions but always recovered, Not the least expensive internet radio on the market, 1-minute snooze???
Excerpt: Tin cans were first used to preserve food in 1813. The first can opener was patented in 1858. In the intervening forty-five years, people had to rely on their butlers or passing sabre-tooth tigers to get into their beans and tuna. Well, for all I know.
Excerpt: If you’re familiar with the original Squeezebox network music player, it allowed you to listen to the music on your computer in one location wirelessly over your hi-fi system. Logitech recently acquired the company, and has been making significant advances. One of them is the new Squeezebox Boom.
Pros: Great sound., WiFi and Ethernet connectivity., Accesses music located on computer wirelessly.
Cons: No battery operation., Glossy black finish is a dust-magnet.
Summary: The Logitech
Squeezebox Boom is an amazing network audio device that is unique in its
function and sound. Brilliant audio oozes from the speakers of the Squeezebox
from a range of user owned digital media to internet radio sites.
Conclusion: The only con that I can really see is that the price is a bit high for most users on the market, if they were able to push it down to ~170$ I think alot more people would find this the perfect choice.
Summary: At $299, the Logitech Squeezebox Boom is an expensive but versatile wireless music system. Its ease of setup and portability will make it more than attractive for those who want access to numerous music options without always having to bring a laptop into the equation.
Logitech Squeezebox Boom – the NEW King of Radios, Radio at its Finest!
12 October 2008
Excerpt: Let me get some superlatives out of the way. I’m a radio geek, a careful, thoughtful observer of the ins and outs of the radio (and other) products I evaluate. This is far and away the finest radio I’ve ever tested. It just happens to be an Internet radio, and, it’s a bargain.
