Very nice radio but seems too short-lived.

Summary: I've had a boom for about five or six years and listened to it daily for several hours at low volume (Never over about 1/8 of the way to max and typically near zero). I can say this radio has been used "lightly" a lot but never abused. You get the idea. The richness of sound has always amazed me.
Summary: i have the squeeze box boom, i really love it, great sound and great features but a problem has come the surface. some radio stations have started changing over to AAC stream broadcast, and i can no longer receive them. Call tech support there is no fix.
Summary: I've owned the Boom for 2.5 years and love it completely, but didn't have the urge to write a review because so many others loved it as well. With more than 200 5-star reviews, what's the benefit of adding another to the pile?
Summary: I bought this after two disasters with Cables Unlimited's Audio Unlimited wireless speaker. For those interested, my review of that mess is available there. This, Logitech's Squeezebox Boom is another story. Very, very nice piece. Too bad it has been discontinued. Why was it discontinued?
Summary: When my 25 year old clock radio packed it in a few weeks ago, I decided I was going to replace it an Internet radio so that I had the option of waking up to something other than the horrible terrestrial stations available in my area.
Summary: Updated: June 17, 2012. Since Logitech has pushed a new bios to it - it seems to be functioning far more reliably than it had for nearly 2 years. I've not seen the unit at the "choose network" prompt in quite a while.

Summary: The product was not as advertised on the Amazon website or as described on the Logitech website, or in the out of date quick start guide that came with the product, or the out of date and incomplete user guide on the Logitech website.
Summary: Sound for the Boom is great. Good bass, controllable treble. Internet radio feature is very good. The MP3 input is a saving grace. Local network connection for my own music simply does not work for me. Support was slow, poor, and unsuccessful.
Summary: I want to like my Squeezebox Boom, I really do. The problem is the hassle required to maintain the NAS configuration. Every time there is a firmware update, the player bounces back and forth between the new and old firmware to be compatible with either the web service or local server.
Summary: The problem I had was, when I played it, it freezes a lot. Especially, when I played pandora, it just stopped and no buttons responded. I needed to return it 3 times to have good one. But the unit itself was not wrong.
