Squeezebox touch : good, not cheap, but alternatives aren't either,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Logitech Squeezebox Touch (Electronics)
So the squeezebox touch is my first taste of internet-connected touchscreen stuff.
It's great to have all my music (or all that I've ripped from cd so far) available at the same time. No need to work out if the cd is upstairs or downstairs, go and get it, wait for the blu-ray to open, shut and think about it. It's easy to select between albums etc. It's nice to have the touchscreen and a remote.
Easy to set up. Annoyed at first that it seems it MUST have an internet connection at least once before it will play anything. (Unless there's a way to skip set-up - I couldn't find one). But I put in my wpa2 wifi password and it connected fine, updated it's firmware, and is happily playing stuff from an 8gb sdhc card in a usb reader plugged in the back. I've got an optical lead going into a home cinema amp which seems to work fine.
£200 seemed a lot, but I like (love?) the convenience, and alternatives from Sonos, Naim (?) etc. are quite a bit more I think.

Same with the Boxee Box - even though it plays files straight off a hard drive plugged in USB, you still need to connect to t'internet the first time. Seems pointless to me but hey ho.

I don't know about Sonos but the Naim equipment also comes with built in amplification, and as such is built to Naim's standards, so the comparison is an unfair one. I too am looking at this equipment and it will be fed into a Naim 200/202/Hi Cap.
