Support? What support?
23 April 2011
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. Documentation shipped with the product is at least one generation behind the software/firmware release, with (as of this writing) no complete update in sight.
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. At times it would stream my Pandora stations beautifully and my kitchen was the best room in the house to be in.
Summary: I am also a classical music listener, but just retired this lemon in favor of my Sirius-XM radio. The Squeezebox has little bass and sounds tinny; hence the incredible variety of stations sound dead on arrival. Setting stations on the Squeezebox is a complicated nightmare, and with a service interruption you have to start from scratch. I got so frustrated I gave it to Goodwill.
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. All reset options did not help and looking at the Logitech forums it seems others are having the same issue and it is a hardware failure.
Summary: Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Schlafzimmerbeschallung und bin dabei auf die Logitech Squeezebox Boom gestoßen. Gleichzeitig sollte das gesuchte Gerät den Radiowecker ersetzen. Die Einrichtung der Squeezebox geht relativ einfach, sowohl zum Squeezebox-Server, als auch zum lokalen Server oder napster. Dafür verdient sich das Gerät definitiv ein plus. Für ein Gerät dieser Größe ist der Klang sehr gut, klingt aber deutlich schlechter als eine ausgewachsene Hifi-Anlage.
