Logitech Squeezebox Radio Review
27 October 2009
Conclusion: You may not be able to put a price on endless musical options from around the globe, or around your house, but we can. For $199, the Squeezebox Radio seems just right.
Pros: Decent sound for the size, Endless audio options, as well as access to Facebook, Insanely easy setup process, Can be synchronized with any Squeezebox or Transporter for whole-house music, Built-in Wi-Fi
Cons: No remote, No artwork/control for iPod content, Somewhat bizarre musical sounds & sound effects, No ability to comment on Facebook
Excerpt: Logitech lopped a few features off the Squeezebox Boom , added several others—including a beautiful 2.4-inch display—and whacked $100 off the price tag to come up with the Squeezebox Radio, a phenomenal value among audio-streaming devices . The Boom sounds a little better than the Radio (especially when you’re comparing the speakers built into each box), but that advantage largely disappears when you use outboard speakers.
Pros: Color display; tight integration with online services, such as Facebook; robust server software; compact and portable; good sound
Cons: Not outfitted with stereo speakers; remote control is optional; uses an 802.11g Wi-Fi radio
Summary: Amongst other things the Logitech Squeezebox Radio is a rather good Internet Radio with the quickest connection (almost no buffering delays) whether you connect using Ethernet or Wireless. Plug In, turn on, select Internet Radio , choose you station and listen.
Excerpt: Logitech's Squeezebox family has enjoyed some success, providing an affordable route to streaming your music around your house. The Squeezebox Radio, as the name suggests, presents a host of streaming music options, pulling in sources over the Internet and your network for your listening pleasure. Sound good? Read on.
Pros: Looks good, sounds good, easy enough to use the menus, Mac and PC support
Cons: Not UPnP, local music depends on server PC being on, doesn't have a standard tuner in it
Logitech Squeezebox Radio - Una radio Internet (quasi) portatile

Excerpt: Ti accompagna in giro per la casa, connessa alla tua libreria musicale e a Internet. E ti fa anche da sveglia ridestandoti, se hai il sonno pesante, con un pezzo heavy metal a tutto volume o con un simpatico effetto sonoro, come "Incendio": magari non sopravvivi al trauma, ma di certo non ti riaddormenti.
