Logitech Squeezebox Touch

CNET
7 April 2011
  • Summary: The Logitech Squeezebox is an excellent digital-music device that offers good sound quality and a great variety of source options, but it's not for casual users.
  • Pros: The Logitech Squeezebox Touch is a fully featured music-streaming device with wide file compatibility -- better than Sonos -- and support for most popular music-streaming services. The Touch seamlessly blends multiple home and online sources, making building playlists a snap. The free tablet and smartphone apps are powerful and easy to use. Sound quality is surprisingly good from the analog outs, and will scale well with outboard digital converters.
  • Cons: The device can sometimes freeze up or suffer lag, especially with a wireless connection. It's more complicated to use than the plug-and-play Sonos. The app is a little ugly compared with those made by Spotify and Sonos. The touch screen is less useful in conjuction with a tablet. Most users will need to leave a PC on all the time, or own a NAS.

  • Conclusion: Logitech's latest touch-screen-enabled Squeezebox works well, streaming music from your computers and the Web without hiccups, but for $300, it's light on extra features.
  • Pros: Streams music from computers and Internet radio via Wi-Fi. Sleek, minimal design with responsive touch screen. SD card slot for photo and audio files. Ambient light sensor adjusts screen brightness automatically.
  • Cons: Lacks built-in speakers. Does not support video files. No internal storage. Apps are limited in number and usefulness.

  • Summary: The easiest way to summarize this is to let you know that the Squeezebox Touch will not be going back to Logitech. Simple to setup, easy to use, and with great performance and quality, it's what I've been waiting for in a networked music player. I now spend my mornings listening to Pandora, find it much easier to put on whatever music I want to listen to at a moments notice without having to dig out a CD or vinyl, and find that I listen to far more music than I did...

Squeezebox Touch Review

  • Excerpt: More often than not, a monolithic public corporation acquiring a small independent company ends up stifling innovation, sacrificing quality for quantity, and inexorably suffocating the golden goose . Happily, that scenario never played out when Logitech bought Slim Devices. While we don’t have any insight as to what’s gone on behind the scenes, we can tell you that the Touch—the fourth addition to the Squeezebox family of digital audio receivers under Logitech’s reign—is...
  • Pros: Gorgeous touch screen; USB host and SD card slot; supports 24-bit, 48kHz FLAC, and Internet radio.
  • Cons: Infrared remote; inferior to Sonos in multi-room configurations.

Logitech Squeezebox Touch Review

  • Conclusion: The Squeezebox Touch builds on the classic Squeezebox design and performance, with some of the visual enhancements present in the Radio. However, it takes these features even further with a slicker, friendlier interface and a powerul (and pretty!) touch screen. For those who want to bring the power of Internet radio and networked music to your living room, with high-quality sound and a stylish front end to match, there's a new player in town, and it's called the...
  • Pros: Super-quick response time, Tons of musical options and apps aplenty, Built-in Wi-Fi, Can be synchronized with any Squeezebox or Transporter for whole-house music, High quality internal 24/96 DACs and fiber/coax digital outputs with support for lossless formats make this system at home with any audiophile rig, Works with Squeezebox Controller for multi-room, multi-device control and integration
  • Cons: No dedicated home button, Remote offers options not available through the touch screen controls, No new apps since Squeezebox Radio launched last year

  • Conclusion: Squeezebox touch has no big flaws. I think it's a bit marginal product and the buyer needs to have exact need for a device like this. For the price of 300 euros I would have wanted to see less plasticy appearance and/or a bigger screen. My biggest disappointment is the slightly dated feel after using many touch screen cellphones.
  • Pros: wisely chosen set of connectors, perfect internet radio to be used while you pc is shut down (if placed in a reach of a hand)
  • Cons: too much cheap glossy plastic, price feels unjustified compared to the screen size and plasticy appearanceprice feels unjustified compared to the screen size and plasticy appearance, smallish screen makes it feel bit dated

Logitech Squeezebox Touch review

  • Excerpt: Logitech’s Squeezebox range used to be one of the least expensive multi-room audio streaming systems you could buy, but now that many iPod docks feature AirPlay or UPnP support, the £200 Squeezebox Touch doesn’t seem to present the best value for money. Once you dive into its expansive feature list, however, it’s clear that it has features you may have missed at first glance.

Logitech Squeezebox Touch review

  • Summary: Logitech’s Squeezebox range has always impressed us with its combination of flexibility and affordability, and the new Touch is the most impressive member of the range yet. Like the Duet before it, this is a media streamer that connects to your router using Ethernet or built-in Wi-Fi, accesses all the digital music on your computer and then pumps it out to your existing amp or receiver via analogue, optical or coaxial connections.
