Internet radio unpacking and first impressions

Overall it’s worth buying. The need for an account on squezeebox.com makes no sence for me, but ok we’ve seen worse things.

The Logitech squezebox looks elegant and solid even with the piano plastic surface.

When looking for an internet radio the Logitech or Philips series are shortlisted.

The decision for the Logitech was by the fact of some user reports mention problems with the philips ones.

After 2 weeks in use I think it’s a nice device with the only drawback of the must have squeezebox.com account.

Ein ziemlich ansprechendes Angebot wie ich persönlich finde. Ausserdem kann man immer eine zweite Karte als Backup gebrauchen, da ich mehrfach mit meiner VISA Card Gold (mit Beitrag) von einem deutschen Bankinstitut in China nicht an jedem Terminal bezahlen konnte. Das kann peinlich und unangenehm sein, daher habe ich seitdem immer eine zweite Karte eines anderen Institutes dabei um Momente wie Magnetstreifen kaputt oder andere tolle Dinge zu vermeiden.
