Logitech Squeezebox Duet

 

Control all your tunes-all over the house. The Squeezebox Duet helps lazy music lovers live the dream of easy access to their digital album collections. Like an AirPort Express, the compact receiver connects to your stereo and plays songs from a...

Wi-Fi LCD remote works well. Great sound quality. Variety of audio outputs. Automatically adds iTunes songs and playlists to its menu. Cradle recharges remote's battery. Universal binary

Remote's scrollwheel advances too slowly for large music libraries. Some interface aspects feel clunky. Can't connect to multiple Macs or Ethernet hard drives

Despite a few foibles, the Squeezebox Duet is a great way to control your digital music playback from anywhere on your Wi-Fi network. Just don't forget to stretch your legs every once in a while.

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...

Slapping your iPod into a music dock works just fine for serving up tunes in the kitchen, garage or bedroom, but when you want to rattle your house, break windows and agitate the neighbors… or just listen with higher fidelity, you'll need more...

Pick-up-and-play usability ; Unobtrusive, attractive hardware ; Excellent selection of online content ; Built-in Wi-Fi ; Easy to control from a computer ; Third-party iPhone remote apps available

Potentially difficult setup ; No DRM support ; Outdated support documents ; Crippled MySqueezebox.com remote control ; Remote buttons not backlit

Logitech's Squeezebox Duet justifies its price tag with outstanding flexibility and ease of use, despite potentially tricky setup and missing DRM support.

Firmware Upgrade Makes Squeezebox Duet Sing

 

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

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

Digital audio is great--especially if you've got a multigigabyte music collection sitting on your computer, or you subscribe to an "all you can eat" music service like Rhapsody. The problem, for a lot of people, is that they're stuck listening to all...

Network digital audio system includes excellent wireless remote with color screen and scroll wheel control; supports Wi-Fi and Ethernet home networks; compatible with virtually all non-DRM audio file formats, provides access to PC-based music files (on...

Minor improvements could make the already good interface even better; scroll wheel isn't quite as responsive as the iPod's; no compatibility with DRM music files such as those purchased from iTunes or Zune online stores; setup process could frustrate...

With its excellent iPod-like remote, the Logitech Squeezebox Duet is an ideal way to stream the full range of digital music--including files on your computer's hard drive, premium subscription music services, and free Internet radio--to your living...

Logitech Squeezebox Duet Music Server Review

 

The Logitech Squeezebox Duet is probably one of the coolest and best products I've ever reviewed. Sure, it's a little buggy right now but that is to be expected this close to launch. The fact remains that once the bugs are worked out, you'll be left...

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 new Squeezebox Controller features a 2.4-inch full-color LCD screen. The multi-room controller uses a convenient scroll wheel, familiar menus and intuitive buttons, making it easy for people to browse, select and play their personal music...

Product Specifications

Squeezebox Duet consists of a multi-room Squeezebox Controller & charging stand, and a Squeezebox Receiver. The multi-room controller with 2.4-inch color display makes it easy to browse playlists, albums, artists, and more. Even search by name. 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.
