Logitech Introduces Squeezebox Boom All-in-One Network Music Player
Today Logitech unveiled the Squeezebox Boom all-in-one network music player, featuring an integrated amplifier, high-performance speakers and a simplified setup.
The Squeezebox Boom offers an integrated, all-digital 30-watt amplifier accompanied by two 3/4-inch, high-definition, soft-dome tweeters and two 3-inch, high-power, long-throw woofers. A bi-amplified design – which includes a high-performance signal processor, class-D amplifier and digital crossover – delivers clear sound with minimal noise and distortion. For bass lovers, the Squeezebox Boom includes a subwoofer connection. And if you want to listen to music in private, the 3.5 mm jack lets you plug in your headphones.
With the Logitech Squeezebox Boom all-in-one network music player, you can listen to your digital music in the kitchen, the bedroom or any other room in your home – without needing to attach external speakers. Just plug it into a power outlet – there are no additional wires to connect. Then, using your existing home network, you can listen to the music on your computer, your favorite Internet radio stations, and subscription services such as Rhapsody, Last.FM, Slacker, Pandora and Sirius – even when the computer is off.
Adding Squeezebox Boom to your network is simple. The new Logitech player will automatically detect the available networks. Once you select your network, simply enter your password – for your convenience, Squeezebox Boom automatically remembers it for future use.
For different music in another room of your home, you can easily expand your Squeezebox network music system. Simply add additional Squeezebox Boom players in any room you like or, if you already have an existing stereo system, add another player from the Squeezebox family to your network music setup, including the Logitech Squeezebox Duet network music system.
Upon registering your Squeezebox Boom network music player, you can access thousands of radio stations and millions of songs, aggregated by SqueezeNetwork – Logitech's free, online service – without having to remember Internet addresses or passwords. So you enjoy an optimized wireless-network speed and a secure connection, Squeezebox Boom uses true 802.11g wireless technology and dual internal antennas.
The Logitech Squeezebox Boom network music player works as an alarm clock and can wake you up to your favorite tunes. Six preset buttons, located under the display, make it easy to get to your favorite song, Internet radio station or playlist.
The included remote control gives you control of the Squeezebox Boom from across the room. And the remote includes a tiny magnet that lets you easily attach it to the top of the Squeezebox Boom or, for example, your refrigerator.
The new Squeezebox Boom is part of the Squeezebox family of products, which includes the Logitech Squeezebox Duet network music system, Logitech Squeezebox network music player, as well as the Logitech Transporter network music player.
The Logitech Squeezebox Boom network music player is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in September for a suggested retail price of 299.99 USD.
