  • Excerpt: The advent of digital music has usually been associated with products like the iPod, iTunes or whatever mp3 player you use. Manufacturers have designed their products around them and you’ve been relegated to using them instead of the other great services out there like Pandora and Rhapsody.

TESTED: Logitech Squeezebox Duet

AVguide
14 July 2011
  • Excerpt: ew devices are a pain to set up and then once you’re done leave you wondering if your time was well spent. That’s how I often feel about setting up a new PC: it takes a lot of work and afterword I’ll have pretty much what I started with, only in a little faster form. There are, however a few devices that take some effort to set up, but then give you give you results that make all the effort seem worthwhile. The iPhone is like that, and so is the Logitech Squeezebox Duet.

The Logitech Squeezebox Duet: A Powerful But Quirky Network Audio Player

Digital Home Thoughts
11 March 2010
  • Summary: The Logitech Squeezebox Duet is a potent combo that makes for a powerful home audio solution for music, podcasts, streaming radio, and more. Unfortunately, because it's such a complex product, it's not overly user friendly. In the many months I've been using it, I've felt like I've had to fix problems with it every other week. It's more like a computer and less like an appliance, with all the dubious reliability implications that statement implies.
  • Pros: Powerful audio streaming system capable of many tasks;, Attractive design, small shelf footprint with multiple audio outputs;, Excellent audio quality.
  • Cons: Expensive;, Total reliance on WiFi makes for a bumpy experience;, Incompatible with some (most?) 802.11n routers;, Complex setup and overall operation make it for experienced users only.

CNET
14 June 2009
  • Summary: With its excellent iPod-like remote, the Logitech Squeezebox Duet is an ideal way to stream the full range of digital music--including files on your computer's hard drive, premium subscription music services, and free Internet radio--to your living room stereo system.
  • Pros: Network digital audio system includes excellent wireless remote with color screen and scroll wheel control; supports Wi-Fi and Ethernet home networks; compatible with virtually all non-DRM audio file formats, provides access to PC-based music files (on Windows, Mac, and Linux machines) as well as PC-free Internet radio, podcasts, and premium online music services including Rhapsody, Sirius, and Pandora; excellent online account integration; expandable to multiple rooms.
  • Cons: Minor improvements could make the already good interface even better; scroll wheel isn't quite as responsive as the iPod's; no compatibility with DRM music files such as those purchased from iTunes or Zune online stores; setup process could frustrate those who aren't tech-savvy.

Logitech Squeezebox Duet

HDTV Magazine
17 April 2009
  • Summary: Bottom line, the Duet is a great option for wireless digital music. As game changing as the Squeezebox was when it first came out, the Duet builds on that legacy to create a truly polished wireless audio system. It is every bit as powerful as the Sonos, but costs only a fraction of the price. The Duet runs for around $315 while an equivalent Sonos setup will cost you approximately $750. And you can add zones to the Duet system at will for only $150 per zone.

  • Conclusion: With its excellent software and good integration of online music services, the Squeezebox Duet wireless music system is an affordable alternative to the Editors' Choice–winning, but incredibly expensive, Sonos ZonePlayer 80.
  • Pros: Streams music wirelessly from PCs or Macs. Even supports Linux. Excellent onscreen graphics on remote. Robust file support. Expandable by purchasing additional receivers. Provides access to iTunes, Pandora, Rhapsody, and Slacker online music services without a computer.
  • Cons: Remote has long lag time and occasionally freezes up with some functions.

  • Excerpt: Audio, over the last decade has come a long way from concert halls, AM/FM, and satellite radio. Online radio alone has been around since 1990 with such services as Rhapsody, and more recently Pandora.com. So the engineers at Logitech have now added another facet to what, where and how music lovers can enjoy music called Squeezebox Duet.
