My Initial impressions on SBT
22 June 2012
Summary: ***Edit Jan 9 2013***** Amazing product worth every penny, but unfortunately discontinued by logitech. Current price at Amazon tempt owners to sell :-) ************************** Received my Squeezebox touch Yesterday. As my Squeezebox server was ready on the day I ordered SB touch, it was matter of minutes to connect it and running. It took only about 5-10 minutes to configure network and make it up and running. Initial Impressions. 1.
Easy setup, wonderful cd management, so so sound from RCA out

Summary: The logitech squeezebox iTouch is a great way to access your CDs. Setting it up to access the itunes files from your computer through your wireless router is very easy and quick. The touch screen lets you search through your collection and the menu system is very good and intuitive. Access by Artist, Album, Custom Playlist that you make, etc.
Summary: If you're planning to purchase this device, it's important that you realize that it has some limitations, mostly related to its use as a stand-alone unit through its USB or SD inputs. When used with these inputs (via an external USB drive, USB memory stick, or SD memory card), the device uses its own so-called Tiny Squeezebox Server, a "lite" version of the more robust Squeezebox Server that you download from the Logitech site and resides on your computer.
Summary: The squeezebox touch is an easy way to play your digital sound files on a traditional sound system. Initial set up and use is easy, plug in a couple cords, associate it to your network, install and app on your PC and you are done. Love the fact that it works with my itunes content as well as with the stuff I get from HD Tracks and Linn. Love that I can also use it for streamed radio content. The device looks cool and is relatively small.
Summary: I had a litte trouble with my firewall blocking the wireless connection and some trouble with connecting a large WD 2TB drive to the USB connection, but I managed to get it going after a little tweaking. Internet music, MP3, and FLAC playback is nice and I do not have any skips in play at all. The touch screen functionality takes a little while to get used to and is not as nice as I would have expected it to be.
Summary: I credit Logitech for trying to make a device as versatile as this one. They did a pretty good job. I've had my SqueezeBox Touch for about 1-1/2 months now. I set up the SB Touch, connected it to the "CD" inputs on my audio receiver, and also connected it wirelessly to my router, following the instructions in the Quick Start Guide. Then I installed the SB Server on my PC and scanneed my music catalog. The PC and the Touch quickly found one another on the network.
Vast improvement over Duet -- but sound quality issues with iTunes

Summary: I really gritted my teeth when ordering this product from Amazon, and I re-read the returns policy before I did. Why? Because I had purchased a Logitech Duet a couple of years ago, and it was a piece of junk I ended up dumping in the trash because it was so hard to set up and so unstable (I waited too long fiddling with it and missed the Return deadline).
Awesome sound and beautiful screen, but SD card interface needs work

Summary: I'm the type of person who normally prefers the sound of analog vinyl and tape over digital, and up to now has never too impressed with the sound of internet radio. I must admit that I was blown away at the sound quality of internet radio streaming through the Touch. Listening to a live broadcast by the Montreal Symphony on Radio Canada streaming at 150K almost sounds as though the musicians are in my living room.
Summary: Ich habe mich wirklich durch das (gefühlt) dreiviertel Internet gelesen um ein Internetradio zu finden, welches unseren Ansprüchen entspricht. Es ist nicht leicht, ein Gerät zu bekommen, was Musik aus dem Internet sowohl auch von der SD Karte bzw. dem USB Stick abspielt und gleichzeitig leicht und schnell zu bedienen ist.
Summary: Zur Squeezebox kam ich, weil ich eigentlich ein ipad wollte, in der völlig naiven Annahme, daß es selbstredend einen Adapter oder sonwas geben müsse, um mit dem Ding eine auf dem Notebook vorhandene Musiksammlung abspielen zu können. im neuen Appleshop hier erklärte man mir nun leider mit virtuell spürbar gerümpfter Nase, daß man dafür doch bitte schon mindestens ein MacBookAir kaufen müsse und man sich als fossiler Notebookbesitzer doch ansonsten bitte woanders...
