I have an existing slimserver running so getting this boom running took about 2 minutes. The sound from the unit is outstanding. Impressive base without being excessive. It was tight and musical. It's a fairly pricey unit for a boom box but it's fairly compact and smaller than I thought so it takes up very little counter space. On the downside, browsing through your music one line at a time is an experience for a past decade. It's inexcusable you can't see at least 10 albums or artists at a time and in color for $280. Makes searching for music a drag. Albums also take a good 3-5 seconds to begin playing. Still, I'm very happy with it and would buy it again in a second.

Its not often i write a review but this is one product that far exceeded my expectations and had to tell about. I am a big fan of music and one problem I have in our house is music formats and location. Right out of the box it was a breeze to set up. It found my WLAN perfectly, entered my WPA key and had an IP address in seconds. From Internet Radio to WMP and iTunes playlist this box plays them all, very well. With Squeezebox Music Center loaded on my central PC it found all my media files and can play everything, including video files, (audio). My fav features are: * Sleep music timer (great when you want beach sound effects to fall asleep, under extras) * Sound effect! * Easy one push add-to-favorites for instant pre-sets. * WMP, iTunes playlist support or a random mix of everything. * Your choice of Internet Radio * The alarm, wake up to whatever you want on whatever day you want. * Amazing sound quality! It comes with an audio input to plug in your MP3 player but I have to ask WHY? if you can access everything so easily off your PC. I guess for guests..??? I would have asked for audio outputs so I could plug my external outdoor speakers in to it. I think the internal amp could handle this fine... I haven't geeked out on all the features yet but hope to do so soon...

Terrific sound, easy setup, clumsy display

Money well spent.

I will keep it simple. This is the best consumer product I have ever purchased. I have it hooked up to a small subwoofer in my bedroom. The sound quality is very good given it's size. Thanks to the Squeezebox I have reignited my passion for music. I have subscribed to the free versions of Pandora, Rhapsody and Slacker. Each music service offers something a little different. In the past few months I was missing my favorite NPR broadcasts because I was working out. Now I can listen to them whenever I want to by tuning into a podcast. I also dragged all of my CD's out of the closet and loaded them onto my laptop. Thanks to Squeezebox's interface, I can now listen to them hassle free. By far, the best feature of the Squeezebox is the remote control in combination with the easy to read display. At two o'clock in the morning, with the room completely dark, I can surf for a radio station anywhere in the world. I can also find my favorite podcast, or I can find just about any song by any artist and play it in a few minutes. Frankly, I am still learning all of the things my Squeezebox can do. I would strongly encourage anyone who has access to broadband to get a Squeezebox. If you are already paying for the service, the Squeezebox will pay for itself through added enjoyment. The same thing goes for those of you who subscribe to Sirius satellite radio. Why not listen at home as well as in your car? Great product, well built, easy to use after a little time spent learning the ropes. To sum it up, the Squeezebox simply does too much to describe in a few paragraphs, and it does it very well.
