Guide Review - Squeezebox Review
The problem was this: there's literally hundreds of thousands of really wonderful, highly targeted streaming Web radio stations out there, but I could only listen to them when I was sitting in front of my computer. Otherwise, I had to settle for the commercial-heavy FM stations or (heaven forbid) actually PAY for satellite or XM radio, something that I was not really eager to do.
Enter the Squeezebox.
What is the Squeezebox? In the most non-techie language possible, it's a way to listen to all of those streaming Web radio stations - and there are a LOT, folks - on your home stereo.
Here's what you'll need to get started with the Squeezebox:
- A wireless network
- the Squeezebox (naturally)
- At least three hours carved out of your day to twiddle with all your new radio stations and add them to your Favorites.
Additionally, you can also use the Squeezebox to listen to your favorite customized Pandora radio stations - what a nice change from the garbage playing on most FM radio stations these days, right?
Overall, I couldn't recommend the Squeezebox more highly. We listen to it constantly in our house, and I absolutely love being able to listen to virtually commercial free, stereo quality, targeted radio stations on my home stereo.
