Summary: I am a big believer in user reviews and ordered a BOOM for our new apartment after seeing all the five star positive reviews here on Amazon. I have two Macs that we run off a very carefully set up wireless system and I had SO MANY problems with this device.
Summary: I don't own the boom, However, I have two radios and a duet. I wanted this but with what seems to be a discontinued product and the price at double what it was; no thanks. Sonos products are not this expensive. Disappointing.
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: We bought our Boom pretty much when it came available, so we paid top dollar (and we're in New Zealand, so we pay extra for EVERYTHING here). When it's set up and working right, it's great. When it throws a wobbly, I've been tempted to smash it. Seriously.
Do not bother trying to use this as your clock radio!

Summary: Latest firmware update (which is automatically downloaded into the device) totally screwed up the alarm clock operation. Can't trust the unit will wake you up at the proper time. If you hit snooze, you have to hit snooze again 30 seconds later even though the snooze is set for 10 minutes.
Summary: Have just returned mine and will replace it with a Squeezebox Radio. Unless you must have the power and stereo output, I would ALWAYS go for the Radio. The setup, as with all Squeezebox products, is childsplay - enter name and password of your router and minutes later you are listening to internet...
Summary: I have been very pleased with my two Squeezebox Boom's until last night. The older one, about 18 months old has died, all you get when you apply mains power is the buttons below the screen flashing and the green display is blank.
Summary: Ich erwarb die Boom Anfang Februar und hatte mir mehr erhofft. - Auch wenn sie gut klingt, ist die Lautstärke bei vielen Sendern nicht gerade sonderlich hoch. Man muss schnell mal auf Stufe 80/100 gehen - und das für normale Zimmerlautstärke.
