Squeezebox Adds New Display, Features, Colors

Send Article to a Friend

Squeezebox Adds New Display, Features, Colors -- Slim Devices has spiced up the Squeezebox (see "Good Vibrations from the Squeezebox" in TidBITS-726). In August they upgraded the display to a "graphical" unit that displays 280 x 16 pixels and uses proportional fonts. More recently, the SlimServer software was upgraded to version 5.4. This update adds an Internet Radio directory, with listings from Live365, Radioio, ShoutCAST, AudioFeast, and their own aggregation, Slim Devices Picks. An RSS news reader is included, along with support for Ogg Vorbis radio streams, and (when running on Windows) support for WMA radio streams. Also bundled is SoftSqueeze, a software player that emulates the Squeezebox's interface. Slim Server 5.4 is a free update and a 6.3 MB download.

The Squeezebox player is also now available in four metallic colors: Rhapsody in Blue, Tangerine Dream, Purple Haze, and Triple Platinum. Slim Devices has also launched a CD ripping service, wherein you ship your music CDs to them and they return them along with digital versions in the format of your choice. A color Squeezebox is a $10 premium over the matte black version; CD ripping costs $130 for 100 CDs, with quantity pricing available for up to 1,000 CDs. [Andrew Laurence]
