Logitech announced the Squeezebox Boom last week and I spent sometime poking and prodding it today. It looks great; clean and simple with a rubberized texture finish. The remote is simple and rests in a on top of the player. As for the controls though, it’s kind of clunky. I wanted to use the large, middle knob more, but the buttons flanking the knob controls it more. Granted, there wasn’t much content available on the showroom floor, but it was a pain in the ass to switch between songs. The Squeezebox did sound good with nice, rich sound. I’m just not that impressed for $299.
