Exceeds all expectations.,
This review is from: Squeezebox Wireless Network Music Player - All Black (Electronics)
This device is quite simply astonishing. Not only can it play all my CDs at lossless quality without me having to move from the sofa, but I can access Internet Radio and listen to pretty much any music I want to streamed from pandora.com. I can control the device fully from the remote or browse albums (and covers) from a PC. Creating Playlists is easy and I can even listen to sounds like `Heavy Rain and Thunder' and `Lapping Waves' - which is a strange but effective touch.
The sound quality is better (clearer) than my Cambridge Audio DVD57 player and being able to play random tracks from my entire collection - or even just certain genres/albums/artists - is terrific. I've rediscovered so much music that I haven't listened to for years.
The makers seem to have thought of everything. The way the display scrolls and glides is very fluid and navigation is easy. Often I've wondered 'I wonder if they've thought of such-a-thing' and they usually have. The support is fantastic and the forums are full of helpful users. There are plug-ins created that expand its uses even further.
It is compact, beautifully built and is one of the most impressive audio items I've ever seen. Its looks, technological prowess and audio quality is exceeded only by its sheer usability.
