MP3 Playback—No TV Needed

Slim Devices Squeezebox


While the company Slim Devices has been around for over two years, we only just learned of their SLIMP3 networked music player this summer. We checked out the SLIMP3 for a review and loved it. In that review, we mentioned that the only thing it lacks...

Digital and analog outputs ; intuitive navigation ; open-source software ; visually appealing

No support for WPA encryption ; display hard to read at a distance

It's useful in the bedroom, the home theater, the garage, the kitchen and anywhere you may want to listen to music.

Slim Devices Squeezebox V3 Network Media Player


With more and more people having double-digit to triple-digit-gigabytes of music files residing and spanning over several hard drives (Hey, I am one of them), it's always a great idea to get those tunes beyond the computer room. With such a great...

Slim Devices Squeezebox


Wireless is now, so why not include your music within the realm of this amazing technology? That's what Slim Devices is out to do with their Squeezebox. Not only can it wirelessly deliver music to anywhere in your home, it's also finely tuned with the...

Professional look ; Versatile Software ; Compact ; Digital and Analog out ; Internet radio ready ; iTunes ready ; Easy to read screen

300 (US) for a wireless version is steep for some ; Remote could look a bit better

To use the Squeezebox, the Slim Server (free to download here) must be installed. Surprisingly not included, it must be installed before you can use the product. Once installed, you will need to direct the software to the folder that houses your stash...

Review: Slim Devices Squeezebox


Stream any number of things wirelessly or wired.

Solid build quality.The display is really nice and very readable from a distance.Faultless music quality and streaming

Installation is a bit daunting.The manual doesn't explain wireless security connection well. Software not included and must be downloaded

Slim Devices Squeezebox Digital Music Player


One important thing that I did not address in this review is the need for storage space to keep your digital files. Hard drives are relatively inexpensive and there are many ways to transfer your CDs to your computer. Whatever method you decide upon,...

Slim Devices Squeezebox


If you can't quite afford a Sonos setup, the Squeezebox could fit the bill nicely.

If you’ve struggled to get wireless kit working before, you’ll be glad to hear that the Squeezebox is a dream to install. Once the SlimServer software is installed on your main music PC, running through the network setup wizard on the device itself is...

Product Specifications

Squeezebox is revolutionary. It streams your music from your computer to your digital stereo over your wireless or Ethernet network - without any loss of sound quality. You now have lightning-fast access to any song in your digital music collection for playback anywhere in your home. The Squeezebox player is incredibly easy to set up and use. It takes just a few minutes to install: load the SlimServer software onto your computer and connect the player to the network. Squeezebox automatically configures itself and is ready to use. Squeezebox is a complete and elegant solution that takes advantage of the power and capacity of your existing computer. As a result, Squeezebox places no limit on the size of your music library. Squeezebox's user-friendly interface allows you to browse quickly through your whole music collection via remote control or web browser. Its large, built-in fluorescent display is bright and easy to read. Thanks to its small form factor, you can place Squeezebox in your stereo cabinet, on a shelf, or on your bedside table. Digital and analog outputs connect Squeezebox to your home theater, stereo receiver, or amplified speakers. And when you install multiple players, they can play independently or in sync for whole-house audio. Squeezebox provides for automatic conversion from Ogg, AAC, FLAC through server-side decoding and audio streaming in PCM (raw) or MP3 (transcoded) formats.
