Stream music to anywhere in your house with a tiny box handling all the hard work.

Note: Slim Devices released a beta version of its SlimServer software on June 7, 2006 that does include support for Rhapsody. Interested Squeezebox users should download Vers. 6.3.0 or later from here.

This unusual product by

The Benchmark Media DAC1 my Dad and I both use has become popular with hi-fi listeners because it happens to work well, particularly for the price. DACs that perform as well as this in subjective comparisons typically cost three, four even five times...

The Squeezebox 3 is a lusciously curving model sporting a rather fetching black and silver outfit and operating via Ethernet or wireless, and happy with PC or Mac

Luscious design. PC and Mac friendly. Quick to load up with tunes. Decent speakers and sound.

Set-up takes longer than it should.

Slim Devices Squeezebox 3 review

 

Liberate music from the confines of your PC and enjoy brilliant sound

Plays just about every file format ; sounds wonderful in the right system ; upgrade option via an off-board DAC ; easy to use and set up

It helps to be fairly network-savvy to set it up ; you’ll need to be a bit crafty to play tracks downloaded from the iTunes store

This is a great product for sending music from computer to hi-fi

Good looking and easy to use, the Squeezebox is also well featured. The only downside is the price.

A GREAT IDEA - WELL IMPLEMENTED

 

A really good bit of kit and well worth the money.

Streams high bitrate music files faultlesly. Sounds impressive through quality hi-fi ; Internet capabilities and slim devices internet support are also really good

Product Specifications

Squeezebox lets you easily access any song in your music collection, from any room in your home. It delivers pure digital sound without the hassle of shuffling through CDs. From its simple remote control, Squeezebox gives instant access to any music on your computer, plus hundreds of crystal-clear Internet radio stations. Squeezebox features a high fidelity 24-bit Burr-Brown DAC, legendary in the audiophile community for their clean output and ultra-low distortion characteristics. Digital optical, coax, and analog connectors can plug into any home theater, stereo or amplified speakers. With built-in support for true 802.11g and advanced lossless compression technologies, you can locate your Squeezebox up to three times further from your wireless access point. Also, Squeezebox can serve as a wireless bridge, allowing other network-ready devices to connect through its Ethernet port. It takes just a few minutes to install: simply load SlimServer, the powerful and free Open Source software, onto your computer and connect the player to your network. Squeezebox automatically configures itself and is ready to use. With support for MP3, WMA, FLAC, AAC, WAV, and Ogg Vorbis, Squeezebox handles all of today's leading and emerging formats without sacrificing audio quality. With built-in support for lossless compression technology (FLAC) and "pure software" SlimDSP architecture, your hardware investment is protected against technical obsolescence. Broadcast the same music or independent streams to 2, 10 or even 20 rooms by adding Squeezebox players to stereos in each location. Squeezebox displays animations that move to the beat of your music. The bright and easy-to-read vacuum fluorescent display lets you see your music, not just hear it. Browse and search 100, 000 song libraries in seconds to find the perfect song for the perfect moment. Squeezebox's user-friendly interface allows you to browse quickly through your whole music collection via custom remote controls or a web browser.
