There’s no question that digital music has changed way we listen to music. The next wave of change we’re watching in the music industry is streaming music, as well as the desire to discover new music. Keeping that in mind, we’re excited to announce our newest Wi-Fi music players – the Logitech Squeezebox Radio and Logitech Squeezebox Touch – which will help you bring together your personal music collection, free Internet radio stations and subscription services – such as Rhapsody, Pandora and Napster – at the touch of a finger.
Product Marketing Director Sam Feng recently recorded a brief video to introduce you to the new Squeezebox products and the world of Wi-Fi music players.
The new Squeezebox Radio is easy to set up with no extra wires or speakers needed. You just plug it in and connect to your home network and – like magic – you’ve got access to a world of music, including your DRM-free iTunes Plus downloads. And the Squeezebox Radio’s color screen can display album art, track and station information, visualizers and more. And don’t let its compact size fool you, this Wi-Fi Radio’s got plenty of punch and fits in number of small places (for the ultimate in convenience, there’s even an optional rechargeable battery pack).
If you already have speakers, the Squeezebox Touch can connect to them in minutes. The 4.3-inch color touch screen lets you easily select and play music, as well as view album art. Plus, to provide a better listening experience, the Squeezebox Touch supports sampling rates of up to 24 bits at 96 kHz, delivering rich sound with very little distortion.
In addition, both products feature our new “App Gallery.” For instance there is a Facebook application that allows you to share your Squeezebox music recommendations with your friends, and a Flickr application which lets you display pictures from your account.
Whether you’re a long time Squeezebox customer or new to Wi-Fi music, I think you’ll find it worthwhile to checkout one these great new products.
