    i have many internet radios, this is my opinion of the squeezebox

    good sound and look but overall the shittiest product i have ever had.
    even chinese radios are far more reliable and easier to configure.
    don't get me talking about the tutorials on this website. they are complicated as hell....i've been abel to progrma and disassemble a ps3 with all its fragile component and riasseble it again, i'd programmed a boot logo into an old pc main board, tested many os, flashed phone with custom firmware, rooting , unlocking them etc ...while the squeezebox firmware update procedure is pure complicated shit !! while offcial fw disconnects continuosly, turns off, then on by its own..what a pieace of shit of equipment and brand!! logitech my ass!!

    take my advice don't waste your time on this website reading forums, sell the fuk*n radio, get rid of it!! and buy a vr radio, a pure elan connect or universum...they are all reliable compared to this vapid product of this sleazy brand.
    plus those radios have server enabled that will enable you manual url inpunt for radio stations ....just in case radio frontier will get shut down in the future you wont loose your device...like with noxon or grace digital and some other shitty brand similar to logitech

    Wow, member since Jan 2022, 7 posts. Thank you for sharing your wealth of experience, and proving that all of the happy users here are grossly mistaken.

    Have a great day.

    And don't slam the door on your way out.

    Having a bad day @Batsam?

    Not sure what reasoning there is critiquing a product line that was discontinued over 10 years ago, but shame on you Logitech!

    Now, back to our regularly scheduled forum conversations

    Complete nonsense.

    Well, to be fair: the now long-discontinued Squeezebox Radio did not anticipate WIFI 6 and it struggles to be compatible with it. There are workarounds, but they require some level of skill working with computers. If all you need is internet radio, your only connectivity option is wireless, and you have little PC skill or patience, then the Radio may not be for you.
