Squeeze my Box (Part 2)

Squeezebox Radio
I picked up a bargain on Amazon this week in the shape of the Logitech Squeezebox Radio. It’s a neat device that looks and behaves like a radio except that it gets its signal via your router - so no dodgy reception issues, even with our very s-l-o-w internet connection. It also receives Internet-only radio stations form all over the world, AND (here’s why I bought it) allows you to stream all your MP3s from your PC or your iTunes Library straight to it.

If that’s not enough, it’s got a remote control and a rechargeable battery. This means it’ll be ideal for those two days yet-to-come, later this year, called ‘Summer’ when we’ll be able to have our music in the garden without having to trail cables and speakers all over the place!!

There’s a neat video HERE

Squeezebox BoomHeck it even ‘talks to’ our other Squeezebox family member, the Logitech Squeezebox Boom, that Ann bought me last Christmas, allowing us to have the same music playing on both units, or something different – in different locations. And for those Facebook addicts out there (yes, that’s me too), it’ll even post facts about the track you’re listening to, onto your Wall.
