That the Americans in support of Logitech bring a Squeezebox others according to the on the market for example. The industrious workers are freaks in the best sense; They tinker with as much love as others solder devoted to elderly tube amps always new, fine audio toys.
Because for example several Squeezebox client on the forums wanted an All-In-one network solution with boxes, a team of developers simply included himself in the laboratories. And the Squeezebox boom came out with again: a compact network client, complete with alarm clock, Internet radio and speakers. As every other Squeezebox needs the SqueezeCenter on a PC or NAS the boom as server software (if the processor performance of network storage for the not quite immodest program is sufficient), then establishes a connection via Wi-Fi or Ethernet and cheerfully plays everything is from the hard drive. Also offered tens of thousands of radio services from the Web.
Thought of everything
The design the boom is straight-forward, operation with the outstanding touch control dial very easily. The little subtleties that make the player so special, like the light sensor which automatically adjusts the brightness of the display – the darker the surroundings, the matter is the lighting. Finally is a radio alarm clock, usually in the vicinity of the bed – and who wants to stare in the dark to blinding light digits?
Even inside, the boom is a lot of intelligence. Two tweeter and two woofers, fired separately in each case of own class-D AMPS work in meticulously designed housing. A DSP takes care of the correct distribution of low and midrange per box – including all possible equalizer settings. The game of this two-way active system can be heard: tonally absolutely clean, with clear treble and one for the size of the boom amazing sound stage – even at higher levels.
Again, a device from Logitech and Slim_Devices, again a direct hit. The Squeezebox boom is the ideal second facility in the bedroom or nursery if anyway the music meals provides a network in the House.
