Logitech Squeezebox Duet

 

When you see a color display on a music-streamer's remote control, it's natural to assume that the manufacturer is going after the vaunted Sonos Digital Music System. But after thoroughly testing the Squeezebox Duet—Slim Devices's first new product...

Terrific remote control, inexpensive, open source

Piggybacks on your Wi-Fi network, compatible only with 802.11b/g

The Squeezebox controller displays album art, artist and song information, playlists, and other information on its 2.4-inch backlit LCD (the buttons are backlit, too). The remote is easy to master: A mechanical scroll wheel lets you move up and down...

Review: Logitech Squeezebox Duet

 

The Duet connects your computer's music library to your stereo with kindergarten ease and MIT smarts.

Easier to set up than a lemonade stand. Exceptional value. Hot mix of internet radio, Pandora, Rhapsody, Last.fm and top podcasts from Odeo and Podcast Alley, plus optional service from Sirius. Remote displays news from the BBC, The New York Times, and...

Can be slow connecting to large libraries via WiFi; our 10,000-tune trove sometimes made the Duet controller sing solo. No DRM support

Logitech Squeezebox Duet Review

 

The Logitech Squeezebox Duet is a network attached audio device that lets you play audio files off your notebook or desktop, as well as online sources. This music pipes directly to your home theater instead of being limited to small computer speakers...

The Logitech Squeezebox Duet commands a hefty price tag coming in at $399 retail and offers great audio quality and a decent interface. The key problem though is the software and lack of detailed instructions which can bring even the most skilled...

Logitech Squeezebox Duet

 

New, smooth digital music streamer boasts logical navigation.

Logical navigation ; Simple setup

Playback occasionally fails ; Imprecise scroll wheel

Overall, this is an elegant system that's simple to set up and use, and it offers a reasonably priced alternative to high-end products such as the Sonos Digital Music System. But its habit of cutting out or failing to play a song can be extremely annoying

Logitech Squeezebox Duet Music Server Review

 

The Logitech Squeezebox Duet Music Server has one of the coolest remotes, the neatest streaming services, and best way to get high quality content from your computer to your home theater… wirelessly!

Easy access to Internet Radio ; Tons of connection options ; Great fidelity and lack of audio dropouts ; SqueezeCenter makes personalization a breeze

If receiver has a problem connecting, there is very little feedback to tell you what's wrong ; Software still beta ; Menu layout could be better organized

The Logitech Squeezebox Duet: A Powerful But Quirky Network Audio Player

 

The Logitech Squeezebox Duet is a potent combo that makes for a powerful home audio solution for music, podcasts, streaming radio, and more. Unfortunately, because it's such a complex product, it's not overly user friendly. In the many months I've been...

Powerful audio streaming system capable of many tasks;, Attractive design, small shelf footprint with multiple audio outputs;, Excellent audio quality.

Expensive;, Total reliance on WiFi makes for a bumpy experience;, Incompatible with some (most?) 802.11n routers;, Complex setup and overall operation make it for experienced users only.

Product Specifications

Convenient scrollwheel, simple menus, and intuitive buttons make navigation a breeze. Expert engineering and sophisticated audio rendering technology provide sound clarity to please even the most demanding audiophile. Advanced 802.11g wireless technology eliminates the need to string wires everywhere just to listen to the music from your computer. And setting up an additional room is simple as pushing a button - even on secure networks. Access millions of songs, thousands of Internet radio stations, and music service providers such as Pandora, Rhapsody and Slacker, without ever turning on your computer using SqueezeNetwork, the unique Internet service. Even your personal music collection can be stored online in an MP3tunes music locker and played through your Squeezebox. Connect the Squeezebox Receiver to your stereo or powered speakers and create a musical oasis. Add additional Squeezebox Receivers and listen to a different song in each room, or synchronize them and hear the same music everywhere.
