Logitech Squeezebox Touch review

Logitech Squeezebox Touch

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about my experience with the Squeezebox Radio and Spotify. I was so impressed with this network radio that I decided to get the Squeezebox Touch as well!

Unpacking the Touch from the very nice (and classy looking) packaging revealed the player, the necessary audio and network cables, a cleaning cloth and the user manual.

Setting the unit up was a breeze, connection to the WiFi network was much easier than the radio due to the on-screen keyboard, and after connecting to the squeezebox server and to my amplifier music was being played within about 15 minutes.

The integration of the two seperate units is also very good, you can use one unit to control the other(s), synch them to play the same music, and also control them from your PC. The synching option is terrific! having both players play the same song is something I had always wanted. I now have the SB Radio in the back garden and the SB Touch in the living room playing the same music perfectly in synch. It also works with Spotify!

I was very happy with the quality of the audio, but I am no audiophile, with only an average amplifier so I cannot give much of an opinion here. According to reviews I have read the audio quality of better than that of the Sonos systems, but either way I am quite pleased with the way it sounds.

The navigation is very user friendly with it's clear to read touch screen, searches are stored so you can easily find music you last played by album, artist, title etc. 

I'm very impressed with both my Squeezebox players, I want an extra radio now to replace my alarm clock (and maybe another for in the office!) I can't recomen them enough.

You can but the Logitech Squeezebox Touch at Amazon
