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...

The Slim Devices Squeezebox is a great networked digital music player that plays music stored on a PC (or even an Infrant ReadyNAS network-attached storage device) and plays the music to a connected stereo system. The Slim Devices Squeezebox includes...

Slim Devices Squeezebox

 

The Slim Devices Squeezebox plays only MP3 audio (and a bunch of lesser formats) but does so with exceptional competence and flexibility.

The Squeezebox and the AudioTron are similar in concept. Squeezebox has a wireless version; the AudioTron requires a wireless bridge. But the AudioTron plays WMAs, has front-panel controls, and costs $50 less. And it works with any device on your...

Slim Devices Squeezebox v3 Digital Music Player Review

 

We already did a review of the Squeezebox2 music server which we found to be incredibly versatile and scored high marks for ease of use and quality of music playback. The goal of the Squeezebox is to eliminate the need for a huge physical CD...

No RS-232 control (just TCP/IP) ; Um... it’s not free

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...

Slim Devices Squeezebox

 

Slim Devices' Squeezebox is a neat piece of gear that is unfortunately only sold in niche stores. It is designed to manage music over a wireless network and is well worth looking at.

Very easy to use and has a myriad of ingenious features

Can't quite match the elegance of design, engineering and sheer desirability of a Sonos system

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

As I type today, I feel a bit more upbeat, because I am streaming music to a Squeezebox from Slim Devices. Squeezebox streams a music collection from your computer to your stereo system through your network using Ethernet or wirelessly. This review c

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,...
