Logitech Squeezebox Boom
When it comes to audio, trust Swiss maestros Logitech to know what they’re doing. This time round, the company has decided to unleash the new Squeezebox Boom all-in-one network music player upon us, boasting an integrated amplifier accompanied by high-performance speakers as well as a simplified setup. Logitech aims to simplify the wireless music experience in your home with the Squeezebox Boom, and prides itself in being the CD player of the 21st century, although I thought that the iPod has by far and large already beat Logitech to that moniker for a long time already.
With the Logitech Squeezebox Boom all-in-one network music player, you can listen to your digital music in the kitchen, the bedroom or any other room in your home – without needing to attach external speakers. Just plug the new Logitech network music player into a power outlet – there are no additional wires to connect. Then, using your existing home network, you can listen to the music you love from the personal collection on your computer, your favorite Internet radio stations, and subscription services such as Rhapsody®, Last.FM, Slacker, Pandora® and Sirius® – even when the computer is off. Adding Squeezebox Boom to your network is simple. The new Logitech player will automatically detect the available networks. Once you select your network, simply enter your password – for your convenience, Squeezebox Boom automatically remembers it for future use.
If you would like types of music in various rooms throughout your home, the Squeezebox Boom is more than up to it. All you need to do is include more Squeezebox Boom players in the room(s) of your choice and you’re good to go. Just make sure you register your purchase the moment you bring it home, as that will provide you with access to thousands of radio stations and tons of songs, all aggregated by Logitech’s free SqueezeNetwork without going through the hassle of memorizing or writing down those obscure Internet addresses somewhere. Each Squeezebox Boom network music player will comprise of an integrated, all-digital 30-watt amplifier and accompanied by a pair of high-definition, soft-dome tweeters and an equal number of 3″ long-throw woofers. It also doubles up as an alarm clock, letting you greet the day with your favorite songs.
