Squeezebox Gets New Design, Software Upgrade

Squeezebox Gets New Design, Software Upgrade -- Slim Devices has released the third generation of their Squeezebox network music player (see "Squeezebox2: Long Live Rock" in TidBITS-782). The change is largely cosmetic, as the new player's design features the polished metal look that's all the rage, and it stands upright like a picture frame. (Personally, I like how the prior design nestles subtly inside my stereo rack.) Technical improvements include two internal wireless antennas, and a new power supply. The player is available in black or white, with a matching remote control.

SlimServer 6.2 adds support for automatic volume adjustment; it reads settings stored by the Volume Adjustment and Sound Check features of iTunes, or mp3gain, aacgain, J.River Media Center, or replaygain (in Ogg Vorbis or FLAC files). The Windows Media Audio (WMA) format is now supported on all platforms, including files and streaming radio stations. New firmware for the Squeezebox 2 and 3 adds Wake-on-LAN support, Unicode character display, and support for WPA2 security on 802.11g wireless networks. [ATL]
