beware of the AAC stream format
30 November 2011
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 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?
Good, but could be great! Squeezebox Boom and Logitech Internet Radio

Summary: Hello folks interested in the Squeezebox Boom. I've had mine now for a week or so and wanted to offer up a current review. I own both the Squeezebox Boom and the Logitech Internet Radio so I am offering a bit of a comparison, if you will, of both products.
Summary: First off, I am not a techie but would consider myself somewhat of an audiophile. The following comments relate to the set up, operation and sound of the device when connected to a wireless router without security coding and does not involve the option of streaming music from your computer.
Summary: In today's digital music age, many people are storing massive collections of songs and albums on their computers or network share drives. The portable MP3 players we all know and love give you the ability to take your music with you, but with certain limitations.
Summary: UPDATED: 10/07/2010, and again 03/28/2011 WOW, I didn't realize how popular my original review was. I have been living with the BOOM in my bedroom for the past few years, and still enjoy it EVERY day. My wife uses it to stream Hungarian radio stations set as an alarm in the morning.
Summary: What a cool idea! This device is a wireless boombox. It connects to the Internet via your wireless router and allows access to a variety of Internet radio stations (using Squeezenetwork) including many local radio stations.
Summary: I became intrigued by the idea of an internet radio when Tivoli Audio released their NetWorks model. I'm a big fan of Tivoli products, but could not justify the $600 they are asking for their model.
Great at what it does - will work best for you if you have streaming media already.

Summary: The player itself is great. It connects to server software which you can install on your PC or Mac or other device. It takes music from the server over a wired or wireless network, and plays it back without needing to connect it to an amplifier (unlike the others in this range).
Summary: Having not really used media streamers before (other than Popcorn Hour) I was pleasently suprised with this item, the quality is excellent. Only issues i would be wary about are the following . . .
