Logitech Squeezebox Boom Mini-Review

Today the Squeezebox Boom by Logitech made its debut and it’s a nifty chunk of Wi-Fi goodness. The all-in-one network player allows you to stream music from numerous sources and, once it’s set-up, doesn’t need your computer to work properly. The Boom utilizes 802.11g to connect to your home network and gives you the option of streaming from online music services, including Pandora, Slacker, and Sirius, from your computer’s music collection or from any live stream on the Internet. Setting up the Squeezebox was quick and relatively painless, once we got our accounts set-up with the SqueezeNetwork, Pandora, and Slacker. From the SqueezeNetwork site you can specify favorites, add stations to Pandora, add links to specific playlist streams, such as kexp.org‘s live stream, and even control the volume on your Squeezebox. So far, we think we might be falling in love with the unfortunately named Squeezebox Boom. Its sleek black design and auto-dimming green interface look refined and the slightly rubberized texture of the control buttons and knob contrast nicely. It also includes a remote control that has a small magnet built in for all those times you–as the press release suggests– want to stick the remote to your refrigerator. Looks are one thing, but the sound quality is what really matters with speakers. Here, the Squeezebox Boom does not disappoint. The sound is crisp, clear and much louder than the 13-inch width of the unit suggests. Logitech has packed in a digital 30-watt amplifier and with two 3/4-inch tweeters and two 3-inch woofers. Additionally, there’s also a subwoofer line-in for when you want to get the floor shaking. We definitely see ourselves cranking up this little monster at our next party. The Squeezebox Boom is available starting today for $299.99. We are just getting to know this music master so check back for our full review in the coming weeks.
