Review: Slim Devices Squeezebox

PaulStamatiou.com
16 June 2007
  • Excerpt: Last month I wrote a comprehensive review of the Sonos Digital Music System . While the Sonos is an excellent piece of equipment, it is aimed at the high-end audio audience looking to control multiple rooms with the same device. Meanwhile, the Squeezebox by Slim Devices (a Logitech company) is priced at a reasonable 299 and well-suited for a single room audio setup. What is it?

  • Summary: User-friendly and sonically tasty, The Logictech Squeezebox Duet is the digital muso junkie's fix. It's not without its flaws, but these pale to insignificance behind its plus points.

Slim Devices Squeezebox Digital Music Player

GoodSound!
1 September 2006
  • Summary: One important thing that I did not address in this review is the need for storage space to keep your digital files. Hard drives are relatively inexpensive and there are many ways to transfer your CDs to your computer. Whatever method you decide upon, you should be sure to make at least one backup copy of your library. You can rip a CD in a matter of minutes, but when you start to have hundreds of albums on a hard drive it translates into several hours of your time.

Slim Devices Squeezebox

PC Magazine
22 February 2006
  • Excerpt: The Slim Devices Squeezebox plays only MP3 audio (and a bunch of lesser formats) but does so with exceptional competence and flexibility. It's best suited for a high-end AV installation where the words "Windows Media" are never uttered. It's less suited to mainstream users concerned with bang for the buck or transferring multimedia content such as JPEG photos.

Slim Devices Squeezebox 3

What Hi-Fi?
3 September 2006
  • Excerpt: The Squeezebox 3 is Slim Devices's third contribution to the murky world where computing meets hi-fi, the network music player. In a nutshell, it allows you to search and play music stored on your computer through your hi-fi, even if they're in different rooms. You can connect it to your computer via an Ethernet-type computer cable or, more usefully, via your wireless home network.
  • Pros: Plays just about every file format, sounds wonderful in the right system, upgrade option via an off-board DAC, easy to use and set up
  • Cons: It helps to be fairly network-savvy to set it up, you’ll need to be a bit crafty to play tracks downloaded from the iTunes store

Musik aus dem Netz: Slim Devices Squeezebox 3

CNET
23 April 2007
  • Summary: Im Endeffekt ist die Squeezebox wirklich ein tolles Gerät. Die einzige Hemmschwelle ist ihr Preis. Wer bereit ist, für ein anspruchsvolles Design, herausragende Klangqualität und eine Vielzahl hochwertiger Funktionen (Netzwerkunterstützung, Kompatibilität mit Lossless-Dateiformaten) mehr zu zahlen als für ansonsten gleichwertige Konkurrenzprodukte, für den ist die Squeezebox richtig.
  • Pros: unterstützt die Premiumdienste von Rhapsody und Pandora, enthält einen Internet-Radiowecker, verfügt über analoge und digitale Audio-Ausgänge, elegantes, attraktives Design, einfaches Einrichten, bedienungsfreundlich, zahlreiche kostenlose Plugins verfügbar, arbeitet auf Windows-, Mac- und Linux-PCs, hervorragende Funktionen für drahtlose Datennetzwerke, unter anderem WPA und Bridging
  • Cons: teurer als konkurrierende Geräte, keine Unterstützung von bei Online-Shops erworbenen, kopiergeschützten Plays-For-Sure- oder Itunes-Dateien
