To listen to Internet radio, Napster, MP3s and more, you need a bunch of equipment, right? Wrong. Wi-Fi music systems are picking up steam in time for the holidays and they’re now packing a lot of features and simplicity into small boxes.
Take for instance the Logitech Squeezebox Boom. It’s not the most elegant looking Wi-Fi radio, but specs-wise it’s a beaut.
As long as you’ve got a net-connected router or a WiFi connection, you’re ready to listen to tons of radio stations, internet-only stations, Last.fm, Napster and MP3 tunes. It packs 30 watts of sound from two 3/4-inch tweeters and two 3-inch woofers, as a auxiliary-in and headphone-in jacks, six memory presets, an optional subwoofer output, and remote.
As for sound, it’s much weightier and punchier than you’d think. It’s got XL Technology that allows its smaller speakers to achieve great results. It nicely fills even large rooms with decent sound…loud and clear, rich in low and mid frequencies with tweeters can handle the watts.
