5.0 out of 5 stars Quality device 22 Nov 2008
This is my fourth sqeezebox and it is as well designed and as good looking as the previous ones. It's a smart little box, a bit bigger than a loaf of bread, satisfyingly heavy and very stylish.

As the description says, it's a squeezebox with built in amp and speakers, ideal for smaller rooms - prior to this I had an amplifier and speakers for my squeezeboxes, adding to the cost and taking up a significant amount of space; this is much more visually appealing and space efficient.

Having just turned off one of my previous SB+amp+speakers and replaced it with this, I was pleasantly surprised with the sound quality - I'm no audiophile, but I listen to a lot of music and I am very pleased with the quality put out by the Boom; it fills the room well, without any of the usual annoyances you get from small speakers.

I control it from my laptop, so I've not really made use of either the remote control or the front buttons; they look good enough for most uses though.

Plugging in and setting up was easy, as you'd expect; I had to upgrade to the latest version of squeezecenter, but having done that it was just like using any other squeezebox. I'm looking forward to being able to use it as an alarm clock, something that was a pain to do with separate amp+speakers.

If I could change anything, it would be to put in a longer LCD - the display is certainly good enough, but it would be nice to see a bit more of the song title/artist/album etc., without it scrolling.

I would never go back to playing CDs, and for anyone wanting to switch over to streaming their music from a computer I can't think of a better device to try it out with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who needs a manual? 30 Dec 2008
By R. Amos
Seldom do products live up to their marketing, however in the case of this little beauty it does! Out of the box with the SqueezeCentre server running on my PC I was listening to my music collection within 5 mins. I have yet to look at the manual! It's a dream to use, easy to set-up and I'm simply stunned by the range and quality of the sound (especially given the size of the speakers) and it has never skipped a beat anywhere in the house. Add a track to the iTunes library or create a playlist and it's immediately available on the Squeezebox. It has a good solid feel to it and appears to be well built. For me this was the entry level option and while it is not cheep it represents very good value for money. I will buy other products in this range in the future. Happy listening.
The server is currently an iMac running OS X 10.6.6 and a BT HomeHub 1 but I'm about to go to a QNap NAS....

5.0 out of 5 stars Logitech Squeezebox Boom versus Pure Avanti Flow 25 Aug 2009
By peter
If you are looking for an Internet radio with the option to stream your own music you are likely to choose between the Logitech Squeezebox Boom and the Pure Avanti Flow.

The first thing to say is that the Avanti flow also includes Dab Radio, FM radio as well as an integrated iPod dock that charges the latest nano version. If these are paramount to you then the Pure becomes the only option really. The iPod playback is very good and the Dab reception is also good. On the other hand if you prefer streaming music as opposed to using a portable player and if you find that wifi radio makes Dab and FM no longer a necessity then the following comparison might be of some assistance.

The software: The Avanti relies on the "lounge website" in conjunction with the "flow server" software. The latter is only required for streaming music from one's PC. The Squeezebox Boom works via the "Squeezebox Network" or the "Squeezebox Center". The latter is the software running on your PC. After using both it didn't take long to realize how primitive the Pure Software is in comparison to the Squeezebox one. This greatly affects the quality and functionality of both Internet Radio and Mp3 streaming that these systems offer.

Internet Radio: The Lounge works by storing your preferences: favorite music stations, etc. You can search for stations via genre but the design is cumbersome and finding what you want is a lot harder than in the Logitech. Furthermore, there are many bugs in the program. For instance adding/deleting a station to your favorites is not always straightforward. It might take a day for the change to appear. The main drawback of the Avanti is that you cannot control it via your PC. You need to do so via the main unit or the remote and its screen is not large enough for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly recommended 3 Nov 2008
By Ashmash
The BOOM is my second Squeezebox device and I can recommend it without hesitation. It's a wonderful little network music player. It's small, solid, and smart-looking. The controls are intuitive and easy to master. But most importantly, the sound quality is really good for a device of this size and cost.

For the uninitiated who are wondering why a little stereo that doesn't have a CD player can be worth 200... Squeezebox products enable you play music held on your PC via a wireless network. They also allow you to play internet radio stations (including BBC: live, recent shows and podcasts) and provide access to nifty internet music services such as lastfm.

The setup requires a network. Then you download and install the free SqueezeCenter software to your PC. It manages your music library and handles the communications with your Squeezebox player(s).

Once you've got your music onto your PC you can play everything from the touch of a button. No more need for the CDs, see?
