Logitech Squeezebox Duet

CNET
5 September 2014
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: But the Squeezebox Duet isn’t a failure—in fact, it’s the best Squeezebox yet—but it’s aimed at an entirely different audience than the Sonos. Where the Sonos is closed, proprietary, and relatively static, the Squeezebox operates on open-source software that encourages tinkering, third-party development, and evolution.
  • Pros: Terrific remote control, inexpensive, open source.
  • Cons: Piggybacks on your Wi-Fi network, compatible only with 802.11b/g.

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: By and large, there's little not to like about the operation of the Squeezebox Duet. Wireless performance was largely flawless, whether streaming from online services or locally networked PCs -- that's compared to other wireless music systems, which occasionally have dropouts. Another great thing about the Duet was the ability to create an "on-the-fly" playlist, using pretty much any source available.
  • Pros: Minor improvements could make the already good interface even better, No compatibility with DRM music files such as those purchased from iTunes, Setup process could frustrate those who aren't tech-savvy
  • Cons: Excellent remote with colour screen and scroll wheel control, Supports Wi-Fi and Ethernet home networks, Compatible with virtually all non-DRM audio file formats
