Squeeze box receiver only

Dave Apthorpe, Amazon
11 November 2012
  • Summary: I've been using a squeezebox for about five years and wanted to add another receiver to hear the same music on multiple stereos in the house. I bought this unit used because you can no longer buy the receiver separate from the handheld control (which I haven't used in years because I interface direct with PC or IPod app). The set-up is consistent with the initial squeezebox set-up - a pain for me, but once you get it sync'ed and running it's a beautiful thing.

Server software is painful to install/upgrade

John Winters, Amazon
19 January 2012
  • Summary: I was looking for a quality music playback device that could handle DRM-free mp3s without having to turn on a TV or dock an i-device. I also wanted the ability to use a phone/tablet/computer to build playlists and manage music. The Squeezebox seemed like a perfect fit with a low pricetag.

Years of impressions...

Alvaro I. Mangual, Amazon
4 September 2011
  • Summary: Everybody listens to music differently. Some people want the highest fidelity possible and spare no cost at bringing the symphony into their homes. Others people want "click = music" simplicity. The Squeezebox has made every type of music officionado that has visited my home happy if not quite impressed. You will need to understand the basics of home networking to get the squeezebox up and running and maintain it.

Warning - No Warranty Coverage without Duet Controller

Plain Mike, Amazon
19 March 2010
  • Summary: We purchased several of these Logitech C-RM66 receivers. As another review states, it is not necessary to purchase the much-more-expensive Logitech Duet Controller to control the output, view album art, and read lyrics. There is a highly-regarded controller implementation for the iPhone, plus, any web browser can also control the receivers and the metadata about the music. We had been using the receivers without a Logitech controller for some time.

Seamless addition to a Squeezebox Duet system

M. J. Mccaffrey "Matt OneLANE", Amazon
29 November 2009
  • Summary: Although some folks have been able to set this unit up as a standalone system, its intended use is as an extra "receiver" (speaker driver) for the Squeezebox Duet system, which is a bundle of a Squeezebox Controller and a Squeezebox Receiver. That's the system I have. Since my original system is working well, I did not want the auxiliary unit to disrupt things.

FANTASTIC product!

Christian, Amazon
27 August 2009
  • Summary: I can't say enought great things about this baby! The sound is fantastic. The price is very very good for what you get. The system works like a charm. Details: I bought a Logitech Squeezebox Boom and it was nice but not great. Sounded like a (decent) boom box... hence the name I guess! I already have a great sounding Klisph iFi system for my computer and adding just this receiver (w/o paying big bucks for a remote) worked like a charm (as someone else posted).

Very convenient, 95% would be my score. Works very well in Linux!

Jan Pfeifer, Amazon
14 April 2009
  • Summary: It is not 100% because the software that runs on the server is still under development and have a couple of rough edges. Nothing major. Also, one can setup the receiver without the remote control. My remote control is my wireless laptop. Works beautifully.

If you are into music, this is necessary

Jose J. Gonzales "acsubie", Amazon
3 March 2009
  • Summary: I didn't purchase this from Amazon, although it is the lowest price around, instead i was able to purchase mine from Circuit City at an insane price due to liquidation. At first installation was tricky, but i mostly blame this on a bogged down 9 year PC I was using. My laptop had crashed a week prior to purchasing the Duet. i figured I would at least get a "taste" of the Duet's features while i waited for my laptop's recovery disks to arrive.
