Summary: The Squeezebox is OK, but lacks some things that I think are important. It would be nice if the remote came with a screen so you could see what you are playing instead of the little screen that is part of the main unit. It tended to have a few technical bugs at the onset, but Logitech has offered several software upgrades that have improved the overall service of the unit.
Summary: I have several of these and found them to be great at first. Then one by one they started failing. Recently another has gone south and refuses to boot up. If only one had problems, that could be attributed to a quirk. But this is a consistent scenario. Is this a case of planned obsolescence to make us buy the new models? Does the Made in China label have something to do with it? So I dinged this two stars for lack of longevity and one star for Made in China.
Summary: We use this device ALL THE TIME! We have a Pandora account and play all our stations. The device is hooked up to our audio system in the family room so we're always listening to music. The pre-loaded stations are fun to browse and we have found a lot of good music. If you have a server with MP3s and FLACs, you download the Logitech Server component to the server and the Squeezebox will play music from your server too. Oh...and from your smartphone also.
Summary: I have three of these. Its a shame that Logitech opted to discontinue manufacture and that those still available are being marketed at a very premium price. It all goes to show that shortage of desirable products will drive up the selling price.
Summary: This piece is everything I was looking for: * Something to tap into the high quality lossless music files I have on my hard drive (.flac) * Wireless * Awesome sound quality via decent D/A converters * Free internet radio with many stations also broadcasting in higher bit rate and lossless format Follow the instructions and its incredibly easy to setup. Download server onto your computer.. it walks you through. Plug Squeezebox into receiver/amp and have fun.
Summary: I've been using my Logitech Squeezebox for over a year and a half, and I have approx 18,000 music tracks on the server. It has worked well for me other than a few minor problems (e.g., occasionally I've had to have Squeezebox rescan the entire music library and rebuild it's database, but this could be caused by me and how I'm manipulating files on the PC). No network problems.
Summary: I am so glad I bought the SB3 within a week after I had purchased the Squeezebox Boom. It really does transform your existing stereo system into a music/radio player that you will say "How did I ever live without it". The sound quality is excellent and the selections for listening pleasure are unlimited. The many members on the forums (provided by Logitech) help you to understand how to set it up and to understand the functionality.
Summary: I did a lot of research into finding a way to stream music from my PC to my home stereo. I began with a list of requirements: - the streaming had to include the ability to handle "lossless" formats, such as Apple uses for iTunes, - the connection had to be wireless, - the setup should be straightforward and not technically demanding, - the user interface needed to be simple and web-based if possible, - the product should integrate with iTunes at least to the extent of...
Summary: This is a top of the line, great sounding, classy looking, well constructed wi-fi unit. I had to mull it over a while before ordering it, (a bit pricey I thought -- other units cost somewhat less) but because of the quality of other Logitech devices that I own, and the highly favorable review comments of others, I decided to go with it. Once again the saying "you get what you pay for" proved out true for me. I can recommend the Squeezebox without reservation.
