    Squeezebox Boom Box?

    Hi - looking for a new radio/music player for the kitchen - anyone used one of these or similar - any good? Thought with DAB radios being so expensive it would be daft not to be able to utilise the music on my media server.

    Not got a Boom, but I have the radio (same gen. as the boom), and the 1st gen Squeezebox (over 5 years old I think?) both running perfectly. I really like the Slim Devices stuff, and Logitech have done an OK job of not making a balls of it since they took over.

    Cheers Tom = I looked at the SB Radio - but it got really mixed reviews on Amazon - it put me off a bit - but you've had no probs?

    Never got it to connect to their "my squeezebox" service (but that was probably me breaking stuff), and have a handful of little niggles - it has rebooted itself once, and also the buttons aren't lit, which as a "clock radio" is a bit irritating until you learn to go by touch.

    Bear in mind it is mono - but the sound is very good, all things considered. Will be excellent when they finally release the battery pack and make it portable.
