  • Summary: A clever device which I mostly got to replace an old tuner and instead connect to internet radio, this it does very well with most stations matching the FM quality I got before. It also plays FLAC files which is my compression of choice (used on my portable music player) and takes the digital output from my Cambridge CD player. The audio quality is excellent.

Overall the sound is punchy with excellent clarity between low and high frequencies sources

  • Summary: After installing the software updates via a USB memory stick the streamer and its app worked perfectly. If you are planing on adding an external hard drive which can be attached via the front USB port. The streamer will only recognize the music files if the file format is in FAT32. format. Overall the sound is punchy with excellent clarity between low and high frequencies sources.

Buy It Now.

Rev POYE "The Rocking Pastor", Amazon

  • Summary: This has to be the most important audio equipment I have bought for a long time. As someone who values the quality of reproduced sound I was skeptical of internet radio and even more sceptical of music streaming. This player has changed my views about both. The biggest surprise is the quality of sound from internet radio. At 128kbps the sound quality from some of the jazz stations are so clean and so big I still pinch myself sometimes when l listen.

Brilliant piece of kit

  • Summary: This arrived within 2 days of the order being placed, and I set it up using a netgear wnce 2001. Plugged it in turned it all one and it found my network storage straight away. I have got it set up temp on a Sony all in one system , not have chance to set it up on my main system yet, but the sound is really good with clear treble and base separation.

  • Summary: Purchased this unit at a very special price so more awesome than ever for the money. sonically wonderful does everything (someone got this unit right) sonics depend on the program source. no more aerials on the roof no more fm no more dab via the air waves (music now all over the world) hence music access amazing. Now optical fibre cable has been installed.

  • Summary: Software could be better though. Doesn't always recognise my NAS, but when it does it sounds superb and that's all that matters.

Well deserved 5 star award winner!

Peter Myers "classof64", Amazon
15 May 2013
  • Summary: Used principally for my networked music collection which sits on a Synology NAS (another 5 star product), I became converted to this way of storing and delivering music by a friend who loaned me a Squeezebox Touch together with an expensive analogue PSU. I ran the digital out from the SBT into a digital input of my Arcam AVR350 rather than using the SBT's inbuilt DAC which is sonically inferior. By contrast the analogue output from the Pioneer N50, i.e.

Superb & cost-effective machine

C. Metcalfe, Amazon
12 February 2013
  • Summary: Excellent 'streamer' at a very good price. Great on internet radio, USB playback etc. Could be upgraded with external DAC but with all the sound settings I've not felt this would be needed. Screen is small but useful and easy to navigate.

Sounding Good

Phone Guy 007, Amazon
20 January 2013
  • Summary: Hooked up & set up relatively easy. I'm using the built in DAC via the Analogue outputs. Put a high quality interconnect in the equation & you've cracked it. Sounds very good indeed, I have no complaints. I am feeding via network WAV files & via USB Flac files all sounding good. Internet radio is immense.
