Logitech Squeezebox Touch
6 March 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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: Logitech 's Squeezebox range has always impressed us, thanks to 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, then pumps it out to your existing amp or receiver via analogue, optical or coaxial connections.
Pros: Great looks and build, big, bright touchscreen, raft of services, wi-fi direct
Cons: Needs a computer with Squeezebox Server, not quite as musical as the Sonos

Summary: Nachdem wir bereits mehrere multifunktionale Multimedia-Player in der Redaktion hatten, hat heute mit der Squeezebox Touch eine Streaminglösung die sich komplett auf den Bereich Audio konzentriert den Weg zu uns gefunden. Inwiefern sich die spezialisierte Squeezebox gegen die Allrounder schlägt zeigt das folgende Review.
