Logitech Squeezebox Radio
22 January 2010
Excerpt: (1 items) Logitech's Squeezebox family of products , originally created by Slim Devices, began life as boxes to get music stored on your computer to play through your existing stereo. Since Logitech took over the Squeezebox reins, the line has expanded to include a few all-in-one products that act not only as receivers for streaming content, but also as speakers to play that content.
Pros: Compact, portable all-in-one design, Support for a wide variety of audio formats, Good sound for its size, Access to streaming online content
Cons: Navigation and text entry can be tedious, Control limited without expensive remote or third-party iPhone app, Switching to Web-based control requires manual setting changes
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.
