Logitech Squeezebox Radio and Touch
by Mark R
“You’re a 21st century music lover but your stereo is stuck in the 20th century.” That is the opening that our Logitech friends gave on their Press Release for the Squeezebox Radio and Squeezbox Touch, two Wi-Fi enabled devices designed for playing music.
The Squeezebox Touch comes with a 4.3 inch touchscreen that allows the user to select and play music. It syncs with the user’s wireless network, and plugs into speakers for added sound quality. The Touch has a USB port and SD card slot to access music and photos.
The Squeezebox Radio is designed to be simple, also syncing with the user’s home network for Internet radio and personal music collections of DRM-free iTunes. Users can also play subscription based services like Napster, Pandora, Rhapsody, SIRIUS, and Last.fm.
It comes with a color screen that can display cover art, visualizers, as well as track and station information. It has six preset buttons on the side of the display, and the user can program it to play his or her favorite song at the touch of a button.
The Squeezebox Radio will be available in September in the United States and Europe for $199.99. The Squeezebox Touch will be available in December for $299.99.
