Outstanding alarm clock

Gord Lamb, Amazon
6 August 2011
  • 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. The Squeezebox Boom seemed like the logical choice, though I was a little dissuaded by the negative reviews commenting on firmware stability. It's only been a week, but I can say that the latest firmware, as of Aug 2011 seems pretty solid.

Superb, just superb

Kindle Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I love radio. I've always loved radio. There's been a radio in just about every room in every residence I've had for as long as I can remember. I wake up to the sound of a radio and go to sleep to it too. I've owned countless AM/FM transistor radios -- table top, portable, clip-on, you name it -- and some serious shortwave gear made by Philips, Yaesu, and Sony. But those days have ended, ladies and gentlemen, because I've bought my last radio.

Great Concept, Great Execution...Almost

  • Summary: If you're reading this review, chances are you've already done a lot of research and are wringing your hands wondering which NetRadio to get. I'll solve your problem: Forget the others, just get Boom (unless you're thinking about the Classic/Duet/Transporter/Radio). Here are a few suggestions to make your life easier. Follow these as soon as you order the Boom, and when you get it you'll be glad you listened to me :-) A.

Very impressive

kem, Amazon
28 December 2009
  • Summary: I recently hopped on the gold box deal for this product about a week ago. I've never had any type of radio of this sort before so I was unsure what to expect but the numerous positive reviews combined with a lower price on an expensive product convinced me to take a chance. My wife has been using an ihome clock radio for the past 2 years to play music at the bedside and while she does her daily routine around the house.

Wondering which reviews are correct? Here's my experience!

New Reviewer, Amazon
3 October 2009
  • Summary: If you're reading many reviews of the Logitech Squeezebox Boom WiFi Internet Radio, wondering if you should drop $275.00 on it, could this possibly be as good as the many glowing reviews make is sound? And what about those negative reviews? My experience? Just got it on 10/1/09. As I opened the box, I was at home on a one hour lunch break. I figured I'd be "starting the process" ..

Incredibly great-sounding and versatile wireless/internet boombox!

Gabriel Heiser, Amazon
30 July 2009
  • Summary: I just got the little unit delivered today. I simply followed the instructions in the little quick-start booklet and once I retrieved my WPA security key and figured out how to enter it into the Squeezebox (you spin the big dial on the unit: go left for numbers 1-9, right for letters, press the dial in to select) I had it up and running in about 10 minutes. I then went online to sign up for their account. I opted to allow streaming of mp3s from my own PC, too.

Slick is far too mild a term for this very innovative device

Jerry Saperstein, Amazon
20 June 2009
  • Summary: The Squeezebox Boom is just plain cool. It is a stylish box bout 14" wide x 3" thick x 5" high. It fits nicely almost anywhere. Technically - much more technically then is appropriate or necessary - the Squeezebox is a dedicated computer designed specifically as a network media device. In reality, the Squeezebox Boom is a self-contained audio streaming device.

I'll miss you, good buddy.

thor3, Amazon
20 June 2009
  • 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? But, as the Boom has been killed off by Logitech, my love for this Squeezebox is driving me to say a few words in memorial. Why, oh why God must you have taken one so young, so well-loved, in the height of its prime?

Nice device, with a few limitations you should know going in

Timothy A. Musgrove, Amazon
20 June 2009
  • Summary: I am an avid radio listener but not an over-the-top audiophile. I don't want advanced glorified features, I just wanna turn on the darn radio and hear solid sound. This device delivers that experience. It has fairly easy setup (though I had to restart a couple times to get it done, the whole thing was just five minutes). And it has remarkable sound. A couple things I think you should know.

Amazing sound from such a small box

Jonnio, Amazon
20 June 2009
  • Summary: I was intrigued by the idea of a network media player that had built in speakers etc, but I was completely put off by the size of the player. For those of you that don't know, the Boom is heavily marketed to be a bedside type unit (also kitchen wall/cabinet mounted). While shopping I thought I would prefer something with a little more heft at the cost of better sound, so I pretty well discounted the Boom and was looking at Audioengine and other options for powered...
