Customer Review

on 12 October 2009
I'm a big fan of Logitech's Squeezebox products, so when the Radio was announced I was keen add one to my collection.

Straight out of the box the Squeezebox Radio looks well made , compact and well thought-out and after entering my network details it was quickly up and running.

Sound quality is excellent, similar to that produced by the Squeezebox Boom (although the Radio is mono), with nicely balanced treble and bass.

One of the great benefits of the Squeezebox products is their ability to play a wide variety of file formats, including FLAC and WMA Lossless, ideal for those looking to maintain a high quality digital music collection. This is where the only problem I have encountered occurred, when playing WMA Lossless files the radio has to constantly re-buffer, making listening almost impossible, FLAC files are however fine. This issue is easily resolved by logging on to the Logitech site and following the instructions to download and install LAME which limits the bit-rate at which tracks are played.

Internet radio is excellent, with very little delay experienced and really easy to use. Some of the plug-ins such as Alien BBC and BBCi Player, don't yet work with the Radio's firmware however I would imagine that this won't take long to be updated.

Overall the Squeezebox Radio is excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending it. Any issues are only minor and as the firmware is regularly updated, should be resolved quickly.
