Logitech has introduced the Logitech Squeezebox Boom all-in-one network music player, featuring an integrated amplifier, high-performance speakers and a simplified setup.
“The network music player will be the CD player of the 21st century, and Squeezebox Boom is the first player in its class to deliver high-quality audio in a compact, all-in-one design,” said Robin Selden, vice president and general manager of Logitech’s Streaming Media business unit. “From the streamlined setup to the breakthrough acoustics, the Squeezebox Boom is an entirely new type of network music player. Just plug it in and you’re ready to rock the house.”
With the Logitech Squeezebox Boom all-in-one network music player, you can listen to your digital music in the kitchen, the bedroom or any other room in your home – without needing to attach external speakers. Users can just plug the new Logitech network music player into a power outlet – there are no additional wires to connect. Then, using an existing home network, you can listen to the music you love from the personal collection on your computer, your favorite Internet radio stations, and subscription services such as Rhapsody, Last.FM, Slacker, Pandora and Sirius – even when the computer is off.
The new Logitech player will automatically detect the available networks. Once a network is selected, simply enter your password to connect.
Mutliple Squeezebox devices can be added to form a network music system.
The Squeezebox Boom offers an integrated, all-digital 30-watt amplifier accompanied by two ¾-inch, high-definition, soft-dome tweeters and two 3-inch, high-power, long-throw woofers. A bi-amplified design – which includes a high-performance signal processor, class-D amplifier and digital crossover – delivers clear sound with minimal noise and distortion.
For bass lovers, the Squeezebox Boom even includes a subwoofer connection and for privacy there's a 3.5 mm jack for headphones.
The Logitech Squeezebox Boom network music player works as an alarm clock that can wake you up to favorite tunes.
