Logitech Squeezebox Radio


Great design is often about subtracting unneeded elements. Logitech hastaken the opposite approach, building up the Squeezebox Radio from abucket of buttons and features like a child trying to attach every lastMr. Potatohead part. As we  navigated...

Clear screen presents legible text and album graphics. Portable shape lets you easily move it between rooms. Audio input and headphone jack. Sounds good for its size

Can't pool libraries together, causing needless confusion. Preset buttons are tied to individual libraries. Requires you to keep a Mac running for local files because it can't play directly from a network server. Many buttons are rarely used

A confusing interface and rigid ties to individual music libraries hold the Squeezebox Radio back a bit. But once you have it set up, limitless music from online and local sources sounds sweet.

Logitech's Squeezebox Radio ($199.99 direct) offers all the Wi-Fi-music-streaming splendor of other Squeezebox products in a compact, all-in-one solution for your nightstand. The radio is packed with features most alarm clocks don't offer, like an Apps...

Color LCD. Easy to operate. Streams Internet radio and Web music services like Pandora and Slacker along with music from your PC. Incorporates apps like Facebook and the Amazon CD Store

Set-up can be a hassle. Streaming and buffering issues over Wi-Fi. Weak sound quality. Remote not included

Logitech's wireless-audio-streaming devices keep getting better, but the Squeezebox Radio, with so-so sound quality and some connectivity and set-up issues, is not the star of the Squeezebox line.

Logitech lopped a few features off the Squeezebox Boom, added several others—including a beautiful 2.4-inch display—and whacked $100 off the price tag to come up with the Squeezebox Radio, a phenomenal value among audio-streaming devices. The Boom...

Color display; tight integration with online services ; such as Facebook; robust server software; compact and portable; good sound

Not outfitted with stereo speakers; remote control is optional; uses an 802.11g Wi-Fi radio

The Squeezebox Radio joins a long list of fabulous audio-streaming devices to emerge from Logitech’s labs.

Logitech Squeezebox Radio (red)


The Squeezebox Boom has been our favorite Wi-Fi radio for some time now, but any tabletop radio that costs around $300 is going to have limited appeal. The Logitech Squeezebox Radio ($200) is designed to offer almost everything that's good about Boom...

Wi-Fi radio with built-in speaker and color LCD display; stylish exterior design and outstanding button placement on front panel; can access thousands of freely available Internet radio stations; streams tons of online music services (Pandora,,...

Remote and battery pack cost extra; slightly more expensive than competing radios; setup could scare off tech novices; not a perfect alarm clock; doesn't sound quite as good as the Squeezebox Boom; some stability issues

The Logitech Squeezebox Radio has an exceptional design, an unmatched variety of streaming music services, and solid sonics, making it the top value pick for Wi-Fi radios.

Everybody knows internet radio is a hit when you're at your computer. Away from your computer? Not so much. Getting your streams into your living rooms, bedrooms, and semi-detached servants quarters is rarely easy, and rarely fun. Logitech's Squeezebox...

Clean, simple design ; Modest but solid sound quality ; World's best alarm clock

Judie: Last year Julie Strietelmeier and I took a look at the Logitech Squeezebox Boom, both here and on The Gadgeteer, and our general consensus was that we both enjoyed using it. As a matter of fact, I liked using mine so much that I eventually...

Review: Logitech Squeezebox Radio


The Squeezebox Radio is an all-in-one system for streaming and playing music from your computer or from online.

The Radio connects to your network via 802.11g wireless or ethernet. Initial setup using the Radio's built-in screen is somewhat of a hassle, since you have to enter text such as your wireless network password using a scroll knob to navigate to and...

The most affordable streaming media player in Logitech's lineup features Facebook, thousands of radio stations, Sirius, Napster, sound effects and much more.

You may not be able to put a price on endless musical options from around the globe, or around your house, but we can. For $199, the Squeezebox Radio seems just right.
