Like most people my age, the majority of my music collection is housed on my computer (mp3’s, internet radio subscriptions, etc). However, it’s not always convenient for me to sit at my desktop on my office when I want to listen to music. Sometimes, for example, I might want to listen to music in the kitchen while making dinner or in the living room while flipping through a magazine. In the past if I wanted to do this, I would turn my computer’s volume way up so that it was obnoxiously loud and try to point the speakers in the general direction of where I’d be listening from. This was just no good.
Then one day, I came across the Logitech Squeezebox Boom – the answer to my problems.
I received this godsend for my birthday (something I not so subtly hinted for) and it’s been everything I’d ever hoped for. It was simple to set up, much cheaper than other network music players on the market, is easily moved from room to room, and it plays just about all the music I could ever want – EVERYTHING from my own collection, music from Pandora, Rhapsody, Live365, Slacker, Last.fm, Sirius…the list goes on. It even picks up local stations (I actually spend most of my days working from home listening to NPR through the Squeezebox Boom).
I would highly recommend this device to anyone looking for an affordable, user friendly network music player.
