"Squeezebox concept"

October 21, 2008  |  By fsantore

 |  Version: SqueezeCenter 7.2.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I like this product and am using 2 Squeezeboxes, the current model in the living room and the 1st generation in the bedroom. I'm not sure the window dressing that occurred on the web interface was an improvement when Logitech took over SlimDevices, but I hugely appreciate the continued updates, bug fixes, and feature roll outs that are taking place. I wish I knew why my iTunes library does not fully scan into SqueezeCenter, I've spent my requisite time debugging the problem. I also wish my gentle prodding on the future of the devices was heeded: don't compete with Apple, make these products complement iTunes. Until protected AAC is supported, I'm always looking for an album that won't play. Let me control the squeezebox from iTunes so I don't have to learn another interface. Where I select speaker output, I need to be able to say 'squeezebox living room'. I then want the audio to go through an associated airport express to solve the protected AAC problem, but use the squeezebox only as a 'what's playing' display. Of course as well as all the other neat things it does. Could use their remote to control as well as an iPhone/iTouch under the 'Remote App' (this is just awesome). Anyway, my two cents. I'm just afraid the Remote app will eventually kill this product. Why spend $300+ on one of these devices, when you get everything for free through the remote app? The high quality DAC and optical out are sweet, but not when the song I want is protected and can't make it out the backpanel. OK, my 3 cents.

"Not bad for a free program"

 |  Version: SlimServer 6.5.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
As such, the slimserver works as advertised, and controlled from the SqueezeBox it works great. The only downside is the user-interface, which is a web interface, which is not the worlds simplest or fastest, but hey - then we just use the free java remote :-)

Oh...and you do not even need a squeezebox. The slimserver is a great network music app.

Tip: As for setup etc - make sure that you got enough capacity on your WLAN - a first generation airport does not seem to be enough...but after an upgrade to a 802.11g router everything works perfectly.

Been using a SlimServer with SoftSqueeze for a few weeks now and have now taken delivery of a couple of SqueezeBox 3s and have to say that this setup works very well indeed. Highly recommended! Much more convenient that using an Airport Express for audio.

"No problems"

June 25, 2004  |  By pderby

 |  Version: SlimServer 5.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
The server and firmware updates went in smoothly for all 3 players running from my xServe Server. At first I didn't realize I had to stop and start the server for the firmware to show correctly in the browser after the firmware upgrade. Also, I had to reprogram the fixed IP addresses for each of the players after the firmware upgrade. No big deal and expected. After doing so it all works great.

"Really, really good"

September 10, 2003  |  By cfranz

 |  Version: SLIMP3 Server 4.2.4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
What can I say? Purchasing the SLIMP3 was one of the best decisions I've ever made. And the software gets better and better (OK, the last release did introduce an annoying bug, but that is fixed now). It's only once every year that I discover a product that makes, and keeps, me happy for such a long time.

Kudos to everyone involved in making this great product - and yes, that includes all other users!
