not bad value< but there are cheaper alternatives if u just want internet radio
#6
Wow thanks for this!
#7
Just bought it! Impulse, damn you HUKD :( The cheapest I could find was £140 from dixons/amazon's original price
#8
HOT. cheapest I've seen anywhere and the extra money off just tripped me into buying it. thanks indeed.
#9
Voted hot but note for non-teccies-this kit is a bit fiddly to use. Also, single speaker is a bit crap - recommend you connect this to a decent speaker system via the 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack.
#10
Heat added been wanting something like this for a while. You can listen to internet radio and music from your pc on it and can also use services like Napster, Last FM and Live 365 on it to. I actually got it for 114.99 because I chose the free delivery. A bargin in my view.

I've got one of the Squeezebox Booms which although it doesn't have a colour screen does have 2 speakers. Unfortunately, I think that has been discontinued now :(

got one last time a good deal was around and can comment that it's a very good device with some excellent features.

There is however a bit of a learning curve and it does suffer a little from a not too intuitive interface - actually, scrub that; the options for what you see in the menus and where you see them are adaptable via your PC/Mac. This means that if you are reasonably technically minded you can create a pretty thorough set of options. If however, all you want to do is turn a radio on and listen to a small set of stations then there are cheaper/easier solutions out there.

The machine also suffers from the odd software glitch which may or may not affect you as it uses your broadband connection and as there are differences between broadband providers you sometimes have to search for a solution online - not an issue as there are some v.good forums out there. My software glitch involves the sound not playing if I switch from using my Mac to stream music (when it's turned on) to using the online system (via broadband when your computer is turned off). All I have to do is turn off the machine and back on again and it usually solves the problem. On three occasions I've had to turn my modem off and reset the broadband connection.

There is also one final issue - that is the one of the battery pack. If you read some of the online reviews you find that the squeezebox radio has the option of using a bespoke rechargeable battery. I was looking forward to this as I wanted to use it in the bathroom. Sadly the battery, with a remote is very expensive - about £50 I think and was due to be released a couple of months ago. It is not longer showing on the logitech site and as far as I know there isn't a release date yet.

I wanted to put this all down as I felt that people should know the downsides of this ambitious machine. It's a delight if you like to tinker with options and there is nothing better than being able to pick up and sample obscure radio stations across the globe as well as linking directly to your itunes playlists. It's pretty enough - the display is a great addition - and it sounds very good for a single speaker. Just be aware that you'll get the most out if it if you accept it's idiosyncrasies and spend some time setting it up and tweaking it.

Any other questions just ask and I will try to respond.
#14
oh, and as a response to mfraser as far as I know the squeezebox booms are still very much available (got one of those too). They sound better as it's a two speaker affair - buttons and build quality slightly better too, but they are £100 more at full price and the interface isn't as good.
#15
Can I stream music from my iPhone when it is connected to my home wifi network ?
#16
Is this so much better than the M&S deal of the other day? Could not care less of facebook etc. Perhaps sounds quality is better but this is still 3x the price.
#17
Squeezebox's are by far the best network streaming and internet radio devices. In my opinion I'd grab the Squeezebox Boom instead. It's slightly more on Amazon but is significantly better as far as I am concerned. It might have "older" firmware but VFD is much better than LCD for this application and has much superior sound quality (Stereo and with better output power). It also includes a remote.

Thanks for that. I can very well believe it is better than the other as I can buy 3 MS to fill the house for one of these. The question is how much better - I doubt it's functionality but the quality of the speakers and amp...

Just be aware that there's an ongoing issue with the Squeezebox Radio and Squeezebox Duets, connecting with the european MySqueezebox server (frankfurt):

This doesn't apply to older Squeezebox devices which don't run the new SqueezeOS

No, it syncs with a PC/NAS running squeezecenter server. Or streams via Mysqueezebox

Certainly correct with regards to the quality of the speakers and amp (The bass on the Boom is very impressive for a device of it's size, even at low volumes). Functionality wise I suggest you read around and understand the differences between SqueezeServer and MySqueezeBox. It is important that you understand these as effectively without one of these the device is useless. I am a relative beginner to all of this and struggle to summarise it well, however I can give it a shot:

SqueezeServer can be used on a local machine to serve your media files and is used for access to the radio etc. Many plug ins are available for this and it is very powerful. I cannot give many details on this as I don't use it because I don't have a PC that I am willing to leave on all of the time.

MySqueezeBox is an internet service effectively allowing Logitech to run a server for you, albeit without the ability to stream your own music (Though this is possible with MP3Locker, if you'd like to read up on this). This enables access to the radio and other web services even when a local server is not available. I use my Boom in this mode. The SqueezeBox combined with a Napster £5 per month unlimited streaming access account gives me access to a huge archive of music without the PC on, simply and legally.

The integration with a server, of any kind, is one of the things that sets this apart from other devices - Everything integrates beautifully. For example, if you get more SqueezeBox devices at a later date they can be synchronised to all play the same media (For example, for a party) or each play different media (Useful for day to day).

All of the devices can be controlled with ease a number of ways - Through a computer or a remote. The SqueezeBox controller that does this is expensive at £200 but excellent functionality can be obtained using iPeng for iPhone/iPod Touch or Squeeze Commander for Android. These all allow control of all devices remotely (And obviously as this is by Wifi it does not require line of sight). For example, on my Android I can begin a playlist whilst I walk into the frontdoor, from my phone. Possibly a gimic? Each to their own.

If there is anything else I can help with, feel free to ask; Otherwise the Logitech support forums are an excellent source of information with many friendly folk only too happy to help.

Hmmm wish it was the Squeezebox Boom

Got a Squeezebox Classic3 and I love it but I want one for the bedroom... Not sure if to get this one or wait for the Boom to drop to £150 like it keeps doing on Amazon but I keep missing it!

deeppockets no it wont stream music from your iPhone and play on the stereo.
You need to be running the the SqueezeCenter software either on your PC or server were your music is stored.
There is an iPhone app to control your Squeezebox and also an app to play the music off your server to play on your iPhone but I havent tried that app yet.
iPeng is a good remote app though :)

No.

Boom:
Vacuum fluorescent display
Stereo
Remote control included
Based on older hardware platform (Embedded device and relies on server to process, for example, AAC radio streams)
Mains power only
Backlit buttons

Radio:
Liquid crystal display
Mono
Remote control available at extra cost (~Feb time)
Based on new hardware platform (Linux bot and can decode wider variety of streams, less/no reliance on server)
Battery available at extra cost (~Feb time)
No backlit buttons

May be somethings I've missed but that'll do for starters...

IIRC it can be connected to more powerful speakers but was not designed for this as such as I wouldn't purchase if this is your key aim. This is designed as a kitchen/bedside set.

If using your own "powerful" speakers is your aim, wait for the SqueezeBox Touch. It'll be out shortly (Feb?) and seems like a very cost effective way of having a high-end SqueezeBox (Pretty similar to the Transporter, which costs over a thousand).

Meanwhile, Napster will work without your PC on (It will work with MySqueezeBox)... Though of course (May be telling you the obvious!) it'll require your router to be turned on.

You can control the device fully with iPeng.

Note that at the moment the Radio is one of the models having some connection issues to MySqueezeBox and therefore Napster would be effected (A present disadvantage to the "new hardware" as mentioned above) - This shouldn't be a long term issue however.

The Red edition was a limited edition. It never saw prices as low as this, and if I recall correctly maintained it's price around the £150 mark.

The most regular place it was available, to my mind, was at Quantum Electronics, who claim "LIMITED EDITION RED NOW DISCONTINUED" (Link: http://www.quantumelectronics.co.uk/acatalog/squeezebox_radio.html).

As previously mentioned, if you wish to connect to powerful speakers I cannot itterate enough that the Touch is by far the better device for you. Especially if you like the idea of the LCD screen, as the Touch is a larger touch-sensitive LCD.

The Radio is really designed as a small kitchen/bed-side set and at any larger distance away it is said that the screen is relatively hard to read. I assume that if you intend to use external speakers you wont be using this solely as a bed-side table job and hence this may be an issue.

The Touch will deal with this slightly better as the screen adjusts depending on if you are near or far away (Less details when far away but larger text so that it can be read).

If on the otherhand you do wish to have it as a bedside job, and can spare the little extra room (As I imagine you can with talk of external speakers) the Boom, available now, is certainly loud enough for this.

Personally, it was the LCD that finally turned me away from the Radio when I had to decide. Due to it's size and that I prefer the look of a VFD. Obviously, too, a VFD is "truly black" where as an LCD is not and I prefer this look in the dark. This matters though, are obviously different depending on individual tastes.

EDIT: Just seen your latest reply. The comments here are still relevant. I cannot comment personally on the speaker system that you linked to, though.
