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.

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....

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.

The squeezebox's black design may not be to everyone's taste, but it does go well alongside any other black kit you may have (and it doesn't look as cheap in real life, as in the photo)

As soon as you pull this out of the box, you realise it's no cheap radio/alarm (it weighs about the same as house brick)

I've seen some reviewers complain setup is bad, because the menus are slow, but I'm guessing this is caused by early versions of firmware, or their WiFi connection, because I've found the menus appear almost instantly.

How easy it is to setup will depend on which of the squeezebox's facilities you want to use & how the security on your router & firewall is configured...

If you're lucky, you could be listening to internet radio within a couple of minutes, or you may spend a couple of hours scratching your head, only to realise you need to untick a box on the router setup screen. Eitherway, it's well worth the effort.

The sound will only be as good as the radio station you listen to. But with the right station and for a device of this size/price the sound is impressive, the bass has real punch, but doesn't muffle the treble. OK, it's not going to match a £1000 set of speakers, but there is some warmth & detail too (even What HiFi magazine gave it a good write up)

There are two ways to use the squeezebox:
1) SqueezeNetwork
This is a web site, it allows you access hundreds/thousands of web radio stations, which can be browsed by country, genre etc (either MP3, WMA or Ogg, but not Real format stations. Which means you can access national BBC stations, but not local BBC stations)

You can also access numerous music services. Though some of them aren't available outside the states (E.g.
